Caring about our patients and our community: An update on the coronavirus outbreak
The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Our practice is following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), New York State and city health officials as we schedule patients.
Our Practice is open.
There are steps our practice is taking, and those we ask our patients to take, to ensure the safety of all. We have further increased cleaning practices across the office and our ambulatory surgical facility. We ask if you feel you have any respiratory symptoms with cough or fever you seek care from your primary physician. We have zero reports of any staff member or volunteer who has been in contact with someone with the virus. We consider our practice to be a safe and welcoming space for those who need our dermatological and cosmetic services in this difficult time.
We hope to continue to serve you and provide you with our services. We continue to be guided by our unwavering mission and long standing values to care for our patients.
We are a community of unlimited strength and resilience. Be well.
With thanks for your cooperation, - Ariel Ostad, MD
In light of the current health situation our country is facing I would like to let you know our office is here to support you as best we can. At this time for the safety and health of our staff and patients, we will be closing until the end of the month.
However please note we are still available via phone to request telemedicine consults for emergency issues with Dr. Ostad and staff, any needed medication or skincare products, and to make any future appointments.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call our office to speak with one of our office staff or nurses or email us at [email protected]
Please use this time to stay home, help stop the spread of Coronavirus, and tend to your health and your loved ones.
We will come out of this stronger and more resilient than before.
Warmly, - Ariel Ostad
