COVID-19 Policy

At Skin & Vein Institute, we pay maximum attention to the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff. Thus, we have taken every measure possible to ensure the safety of patients while minimizing the risk to our healthcare team. Our COVID-19 policy comprises:

  • Rescheduling the appointments of patients who have displayed COVID-19 symptoms – fever, cough, sneezing, shortness of breath, or diarrhea - or been exposed to a COVID-19 patient within the last 14 days.
  • In accordance with CDC and health authority recommendations, all patients are required to wear a surgical or cloth mask, bandana, or scarf over their mouth and nose while they are in our office. Please do not wear masks with valves. Please note that we are unable to provide masks to patients. All patients should sanitize their hands upon entering the premises.
  • Limiting guests accompanying patients unless absolutely necessary, for instance, if the patient is a minor or requires assistance. Apart from caregivers, other guests should wait outside the office.
  • Patients are strongly encouraged to complete the check-in paperwork online prior to their appointment so that the time spent in the lobby can be reduced.
  • To adhere to social distancing protocol, we request patients to stay six feet from each other and our staff at all times unless an examination requires closer contact. Our lobby capacity has also been limited with chairs placed further apart.
  • All staff members wear protective gear including masks, gloves, and face shields. All patient rooms are disinfected between appointments and all high-touch surfaces are sanitized throughout the day.

Please call (760) 452-2080 or email [email protected] should you have any questions or concerns regarding our COVID-19 policy, or did not receive the link. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
