COVID-19 Update: We are Open

Your Health Is Our Top Priority

Skin cancer is incredibly common, and our practice focuses on both prevention and treatment.  Because skin cancer, untreated will continue to grow and some types have a potential to metastasize (spread to other organs of the body), it is important, if you have a suspicious lesion, to have it checked as soon as possible.  Taking off a skin cancer- when it is first detected means a reduced chance of surgical complications and a smaller scar. 

 If you have already had skin biopsies that revealed skin cancer and have a scheduled surgical appointment to completely remove the skin cancer.  We are open and committed to caring for your surgical needs. 

 There are also other urgent concerns that can occur such as a flare of a rash, whether it be of new onset or resurgence of an existing condition. We are open and committed to caring for all your skincare needs. 

 We are acutely aware of the rapidly changing climate in regard to COVID-19.  

Rest assured we are committed to keeping you safe.

Here are a few things we are doing at FLDSCC:

  • Your safety is our primary concern. 
  • We will keep you informed about any changes to our clinics or appointment schedules by phone.
  • All of our employees understand that should they show any signs of illness, they are to remain at home. 
  • We have always prided ourselves in the cleanliness of our offices. We are continuing to be meticulous about cleaning all areas and disinfecting common surfaces. 
  • Our waiting room is spacious and will comfortably allow for adequate “social distancing”.
  • Should you experience any respiratory symptoms such as cough or fever, please call to reschedule your appointment. 
  • We have a waiting list of patients to be seen, please call our office if you would like to be added to this list. 
  • We will soon begin to offer telemedicine visits through your patient portal.  Please stay tuned for more information about this as it becomes available.
