Covid-19 Update

At the Derm, our priority is to continue providing excellent dermatology care in a safe environment for our patients and staff.  We have created and implemented a strategic plan using best practices to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure in our practice.

Our offices are open and we are committed to making them one of the safest places you can visit outside your home.

Staff precautions:

  • The Derm will be checking our employee temperatures to ensure no one is working with a fever or cough.  Anyone identified with an elevated temperature or illness will be sent home.
  • The Derm has suspended vendors and any other outside visitors from all of our offices.
  • The Derm has implemented more aggressive cleaning protocols, including regularly disinfecting all high touch areas which will continue to occur frequently throughout the day.

Patient precautions:

  • All Patients coming into the office must wear a face mask or face covering to be seen.
  • The Derm will screen all patients for symptoms of illness prior to entering our offices.
  • The Derm will ask anyone exhibiting symptoms of illness to go home and inform their primary care doctor.
  • The Derm will waive any last-minute cancellation fees associated with rescheduling appointments due to COVID-related illnesses or concerns.
  • To ensure social distancing, no visitors are allowed except one parent for minor children or one visitor for patients requiring assistance.  We recognize that there may be some exceptions to this rule and will work to accommodate your needs.
  • The Derm will provide more open spaced seating and you will have the option to wait in your car until your exam room is open.
  • The Derm has removed all magazines, samples, and other loose items from the waiting room and exam rooms so that efficient sterilization can be performed between each patient.

Patients wishing to purchase or replenish their non-prescription skin care products can call The Derm at 847-843-3376 and we will be happy to ship to your home or place of residence.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
