Both our Edina and Eden Prairie clinics are open! We are taking precautions to ensure the highest level of safety and are also continuing to offer telemedicine visits which are video calls with your physician from the comfort of your home!
As an essential business, Dermatology Specialists remains committed to patient and employee safety as we navigate through the current health care crisis. 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. The below policies will be enforced beginning Monday, May 4th.
For patients being seen in our clinic, the CDC is now recommending that all staff, patients and visitors cover their faces in health care facilities. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are requiring patients to bring and wear a face covering (such as protective mask or cloth covering) to any upcoming appointments.
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. You can also use a scarf or bandana. Additionally, masks can be purchased from many local and online retailers.
Contactless Check In
In addition, in an effort to limit physical interaction, we are embracing contactless practice solutions. We will be securely storing a credit card on file at time of scheduling your appointment, verifying insurance information over the phone and asking you to complete pre-registration online 24 hours prior to your appointment. Complete patient paperwork here.
Temperature & Additional People
On the day of your appointment, we ask that you take your temperature at home prior to arriving to our office. If you register a temperature of 99.5° F or higher, you must reschedule your appointment. We continue to ask that you do not bring any unnecessary people with you to your appointment, with the exception of guardian with a child or assistance with mobility.
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 here.
We appreciate your efforts to help protect yourself, our care teams and our entire community.
