San Francisco Dermatology remains open during the COVID-19 outbreak in order to continue to care for our patients and community.
We are following public health guidelines to keep our office as safe as possible for our patients and staff. We have implemented safety measures including minimizing our schedule and taking other steps to allow ample social distancing, rooming patients upon arrival to avoid use of our waiting room, sanitizing all touched items and surfaces after each use, making hand sanitizer available throughout the office, supplying staff with personal protective equipment, including N95 masks and gloves, and doing daily health screenings of our staff. In addition, each exam room has a HEPA/UV air purifier and an open window for increased air purification and ventilation. Per San Francisco Department of Public Health order, do not come to our office if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 10 days or a member of your household or other close contact has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 24 hours which is new or not explained by a pre-existing condition including fever, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, unusually fatigued, loss of taste or smell, muscle pain, headache, runny or congested nose, or diarrhea. Please wear a non-valved face covering when coming to our office. Please do not bring anyone with you to our office except for up to one essential care taker.
We hope to help you soon.
