We at Melissa Langley MD Dermatology & Aesthetics understand these are unsettling times. To protect our staff and patients, we have closed the office for the remainder of the week. We want to assure you, we are available for any dermatological emergencies, should they arise. Our nurse’s line and email are being monitored. Please contact us if you need assistance, our patients are like family and continue to be very important to us.
We are offering to ship products free of charge to be sure you can continue your skin care while remaining safely at home. We plan to resume our schedule next week. We are closely monitoring the situation through the CDC and World Health Organization. We will be allowing more time between every patient to minimize any wait time. Although we pride ourselves on cleanliness, we will be cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces, between each and every patient. All employees will be screened carefully for any signs of illness, carefully following the CDC guidelines.
What you can expect as a patient:
You will be getting a phone call from our office to screen each patient individually for illness or risk of exposures. If you or your family have had cough, fever, or shortness of breath, you will be asked to reschedule. If you have traveled to Europe, Asia or Australia in the past 4 weeks, we will ask you to reschedule.
If you are at an increased risk, we will discourage you from coming because we do not want you to take any chances. Such as: over age 65, if you have lung or heart disease, diabetic, cancer or a suppressed immune system.
You will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon arrival and exiting
We plan to bring you right back to a room without waiting room exposure. The nurses will review your chart information in the room.
We will continue to wash hands, use sanitizer, and clean every surface between each patient including door knobs, counters etc with hospital grade disinfectant.
Please notify us if you have any symptoms of illness and do not come into the office. 615-321-1020. There will be no penalty for cancellations. We will be understanding if you should simply decide you do not want to get out. Your health is our number one priority during these difficult times.
