REOPENING OF NASHVILLE = REOPENING OF SKINMD!

Dear Patients,

We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, patients, and staff very seriously. Like you, we’re closely monitoring the Nashville Mayor’s Reopening Roadmap. Social distancing has slowed the rate at which COVID-19 is spreading in Tennessee. In Nashville and perhaps in certain other parts of the state, the rate of transmission has fallen to the point where the number of new cases may no longer be growing. However, the threat of a return to exponential increases remains. Epidemiologists and infectious disease experts agree that in the absence of strict social distancing, Tennessee’s numbers would once again surge. Phase ONE of the Reopening of Nashville allows for medical offices to open their doors.

EFFECTIVE Thursday, April, 30, 2020, SkinMD will re-open its doors on a limited basis and with specific guidelines and protocols. Patients who are unable to follow the guidelines will not be able to be seen in the office and may have the option to be seen via a Telehealth appointment.  If you would like to REQUEST an in-person appointment, please click here.

PATIENT PROTOCOLS:

Age 70+ OR High-Risk

Please stay at home! We are offering EMERGENCY ONLY care to this group (pain/bleeding), unless you have had a positive antibody test (once testing is available-to prove immunity to COVID-19).

*EMERGENCY ONLY APPOINTMENTS will be from 8-9am Monday-Thursday. Otherwise, patients in this group may continue to schedule Telemedicine appointments.

Age <70 AND Low-Risk

You may now have in-person dermatology clinic visits, surgeries and procedures.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL PATIENTS ENTERING OUR OFFICE:

  • Per the Mayor’s Office, you must wear masks in public- including the SkinMD office- please bring your own. A cloth mask or bandana-type mask is acceptable.

  • All patients will be screened, over the phone, prior to their appointment, and on arrival to the office for elevated temperature and respiratory symptoms. Please DO NOT make an appointment or come to an appointment if you have had or have been exposed to anyone who has had flu-like symptoms: cough, fever, sore throat, or shortness of breath in the previous 14 days.

  • Physical distancing must be maintained (6 feet) unless medically necessary for examination. Please greet fellow patients and staff with a nod, smile and/or wave. Do not shake hands or hug. Please do not crowd the check-in or check-out desk.

  • Patients must adhere to respiratory hygiene, cough etiquette (cough/sneeze into your elbow or cover with a tissue), and hand hygiene (please wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer provided).

  • NEW Patients: You will need to fill out your forms and email or fax those to our office prior to your appointment. Forms can be found here. (please link to: https://skinmdpllc.com/patient/forms/) As a reminder, we only accept Medicare, Tricare and BCBS. Email: appts@skinmdpllc.com   Fax: 615-279-5602

  • ESTABLISHED Patients: The staff can make any updates to your chart for you on your arrival to our office.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
