Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Dear Patients and Friends, 

Since our inception, our goal has been to keep you healthy and looking your best. In response to the recent outbreak, we are carefully following CDC and AMA guidelines to protect you and your loved ones while visiting our office. We want to reassure you we are here and ready to help you with your usual (or unusual!) skin conditions. 

 

If you are feeling sick, presenting with any COVID-19 symptoms, have travelled to a potential high risk area in the last two weeks, had viral exposure, are on self-quarantine or awaiting test results, please give us a call so we can reschedule your appointment. Otherwise, our loyal staff and providers will continue to make sure your skin stays looking good and is cancer free. 

Below you will find more information on what we are doing to keep you healthy while you visit our office. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you to the practice in the days and weeks to come!

Warm regards,

Georgetown Dermatology

  

New Check-in

Procedures

Plexiglass sneeze guards have been placed to keep you and our front desk staff safe as you interact to check in and schedule follow up appointments. We have continued to provide hand sanitizer and clean pens, and we keep our door open to minimize  your interaction with multiple surfaces. 

Shorter

Waiting times

To reduce congestion in our waiting room, patient visits have been extended to provide ample time between patients and room sanitation. Our friendly staff ensures you are brought into a private room immediately after checkin. Our average waiting time to be roomed is less than 4 minutes. 

 

New 

Policies

In order to minimize the risk of viral exposure we require all patients and staff wear face masks through the entire visit. People who have traveled in the last two weeks, who tested positive in the past month or are presenting with symptoms are asked to reschedule appointments.

sanitation

True HEpa 

Filters

Honeywell True HEPA Filters have been placed in every exam room and our waiting room. These HEPA filters also contain carbon pre-filters and together are capable of filtering 99.97% of air particulates, including airborne bacteria and viruses. They improve clean airflow for each exam room as well as the waiting room. 

In response to COVID-19, the HVAC filters in the Foxhall Square Building have been upgraded to MERV-13 filters. MERV-13 is one of the highest grade commercially available HVAC filters.
