Seeking Care at Advanced Dermatology is Safe and Telehealth is Available

Advanced Dermatology takes your health and safety seriously.

Staying six feet away from others may be essential to maintaining your health. But, your doctor is not someone you should be avoiding. In fact, a good way to stay healthy is to stay in touch with your care providers. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Booking a skin cancer exam every year or more frequently if you have a history of skin cancer is the best way to detect changes in your skin at the earliest stages. When skin cancer is detected early, the 5-year survival rate for melanoma is 99 percent.

So, don’t delay any longer. It’s time to book your dermatology appointment. Safe in-office visits and Telehealth appointments are available at Advanced Dermatology.

Keeping Your Appointment Keeps You Healthy

Getting an annual exam is also a great opportunity to speak to your dermatologist about any other changes you’ve noticed in your skin, hair and nails. Advanced Dermatology will create a customized treatment plan to address your concerns and keep you healthy. The Advanced Dermatology care team is also ready to talk with you about you rejuvenation and anti-aging goals. Our experienced team will work with you to identify products and services aimed at keeping you healthy and radiant.

We care about you and the communities we serve and want you to know that we have implemented new protocols for your dermatological visit to reduce the risk of transmission of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). The new protocols listed below provide you valuable information on how to prepare for your visit, how our teams are screening patients for the Coronavirus and what to expect during your visit.

Preparing for your dermatology visit

  • Patients will be required to wear protective masks during their visit so please bring and wear your own mask or if you don’t have a mask, one will be provided.
  • Patients should come to their visit alone unless the patient visiting is a dependent (child or other dependent) and requires a guardian’s care to support the dermatology visit
  • Bring your mobile device as you may be required to wait in your car for your appointment time (be sure to check-in at the office when you arrive)
  • All patients will be asked a few questions and have their temperature checked as a pre-screening for the Coronavirus
  • Patients who fail the screening will be asked to reschedule their appointments and will be provided suggestions regarding follow-up and educational material about COVID-19. We will also ask additional questions seeking more detail from patients that fail the screening protocol.

Arriving at our Clinics

  • Before exiting your car, please secure your mask.  If you did not bring a mask, one will be made available for you inside the office.
  • When you enter the building, please make sure to keep a safe social distance of 6 ft or more from any other visitors, patients and from staff members as you enter the building and office
  • As an additional screening for the Coronavirus, a staff member will safely check your temperature and ask you a few screening questions
  • After screening, please check in at the front desk and put on your new protective mask if you did not bring one with you

  • When your pre-screening has been completed, the front desk team member will provide additional instructions on where to wait for your appointment to maintain safe social distancing.  Please be prepared to provide your mobile phone number so that they can notify you when your provider is ready for your appointment.
