IMPORTANT COVID 19 UPDATES

To our patients:

We are thinking of you and are implementing the following changes in an effort to keep you healthy and safe.  

OFFICE HOURS: For now, our hours will remain the same, but please continue to check our website for any changes.  If you need a prescription refill, we ask that you request it through your pharmacy.  This will initiate an electronic request that we can access and frees up staff to perform other tasks during office hours.  We have reduced the number of staff present in the office at any one time in order to maintain social distancing. 

OFFICE VISITS:  When you arrive for your appointment, remain in your car and call us to let us know you have arrived.  When it is time for your appointment, we will call or text you and you will be escorted directly into an exam room.  We will perform temperature screenings at our discrection.  if you are feeling unwell, please let us know prior to your arrival and we will determine if it is safe for you to be seen.  If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or have had contact with anyone else with these symptoms, we will reschedule your appointment or offer you a telehealth visit.  TELLING US ABOUT YOUR SYMPTOMS KEEPS EVERYONE SAFE.   

PROVIDERS/STAFF:  We will likely need to change our providers' schedules in the upcoming weeks.  Please be flexible.  You may need to see a different provider than the one you were originally scheduled with.  Please be patient. We have reduced the number of staff present in the office at any one given time for everyone's safety.

NO VISITORS:  At this time we are not allowing anyone other than the patient into the office.  Exceptions will be made for minor children or those requiring special assistance.  

SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS:  In an effort to reduce traffic to Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care Centers, we are offering same day appointments for urgent dermatological problems and laceration repairs.  

TELEHEALTH:  We are now offering telehealth visits.  Please call us to request one.  We are utilizing a service called doxy.me which can be billed to your insurance OR you may also click the blue ONLINE CONSULT button on the bottom right of your screen to access a self pay, low cost option 24 hours a day.  

PROCEDURES:  We will continue to perform SELECTED office procedure at this time.  Certain procedures may be deferred at the discretion of your physician.  

Please continue to practice social distancing, take care of yourself and you family.  Please let us know how we can help you.  We are all in this together.

Sincerely, Dr. Correale and Dr. Bevilacqua
