Dermatology Specialists remains committed to patient and employee safety as we continue to follow CDC recommendations for healthcare facilities. We care deeply about patient health and have implemented several infection prevention measures to ensure the highest level of safety when you visit our clinic.
If you are experiencing a cough, fever, or shortness of breath or have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 5 days, please call to reschedule your appointment.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, face coverings are required whenever you visit our office. Masks or cloth coverings must be worn over your mouth and nose for the duration of your appointment. Members of your care team will also wear masks to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you do not have access to a face covering, the CDC website has guidelines for making no-sew, cloth face coverings. Additionally, masks can be purchased from many local and online retailers.
Reduced Contact Check In
In addition, in an effort to limit physical interaction, we are embracing contactless practice solutions. We will be verifying insurance information over the phone and asking you to complete pre-registration online 24 hours prior to your appointment. You can view the online patient paperwork here. If you arrive early to your appointment, please wait in your car until your scheduled appointment time unless you were instructed to check-in early.
We ask that all patients attend appointments individually unless assistance with mobility is needed. Minors can be accompanied by one parent or guardian.
Mohs Surgery Policy
Dermatology Specialists is committed to the safety of our patients, physicians and staff. You can count on our care teams to ensure you have limited risk of exposure to COVID-19 during your appointment.One way we limit your risk of exposure is by requiring either proof of vaccination or a COVID-19 test for patients prior to a scheduled Mohs surgery. This requirement is one of many measures to ensure we can keep you and all of our patients and staff safe.
Dermatology Specialists is also offering telemedicine visits which can be completed from the comfort of your home. To schedule a telemedicine visit please contact our office at 952-920-3808 and one of our reception team members will be happy to schedule your visit. Learn more about telemedicine.
We appreciate your efforts to help protect yourself, our care teams and our entire community.
Appointment Cancellation Policy
Your appointment is reserved especially for you. Should you need to cancel or change the date of your appointment, we would require a 24-hour notice. A patient who fails to show up for a scheduled appointment without prior notice will be considered a “no show”. A patient who no shows for an appointment or fails to give adequate 24-hour notice for an appointment may be assessed a $50.00 fee. Multiple “no show” visits may be subject to dismissal from the practice. As a courtesy, we will do our best to send a reminder via email, text, or voice call. If you do not receive your reminder call or message, the cancellation policy will still remain in effect. If you are running late for your appointment, please give us a call at 952-920-3808. Our physicians will try to accommodate you into their schedule if they can, however, this is not always possible and you may need to reschedule. You may also be subject to the $50.00 no-show/late cancellation fee.
Dermatology Specialists takes pride in the services that are rendered to our patients.
