HIPAA Compliant Telehealth
Laser Skin Care Center is excited to announce that we are implementing a HIPAA compliant, safe and secure portal where you can interact with a medical provider from the comfort of your home or office.
As people practice social distancing and businesses that do not provide emergency services begin to close or limit their operating hours in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we want you to know that your health is still a priority for us. While we are limiting our office visits to urgent visits only, we are implementing a telehealth program so that we may continue to serve our patients during this difficult time
Currently Scheduled Appointments. If you currently have a full body skin exam appointment and have a history of skin cancer or abnormal moles, we encourage you to keep your scheduled visit with your provider. The Provider can evaluate photos of any spots or areas of concern on your skin and speak to you using video chat on your smartphone. If there is anything that needs to be evaluated further in the clinic, we will schedule you for an urgent visit. Please contact our office if you would like to keep your scheduled appointment and one of our staff will send you the invite for our Telehealth system. Many of the services that we provide can be performed through live audio-visual communication, such as FaceTime, Skype or Facebook messenger chat. Some visits can even be performed by a telephone call, email or patient portal messaging.Your visit will be billed to your insurance company the same way we would bill your office visit.
Healthcare Needs. If you have healthcare needs in the coming weeks, including follow-up appointments, please reach out to our office to schedule an appointment. We will first screen you to see if the visit can be done remotely. If possible, we will set up an appointment for you to video chat with your provider. For visits that cannot be completed remotely we will still see urgent and some surgical patients in the office.
Safety. The health and safety of our patients, physicians and staff is our top priority. To ensure your safety, we have suspended vendors and other visitors from visiting our office. We have instituted even more aggressive cleaning protocols. We removed magazines from the waiting area. We changed the seating so that you are not sitting near anyone else. When you use a pen to check in, it is not reused until disinfected. We are screening all patients before they enter the office. Staff are wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks, gloves and gowns. Please be reassured that we are closely monitoring the situation with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other governmental agencies.
Important. If you have traveled recently, have a cough, had a fever within the last 30 days ,have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or are being tested yourself for COVID-19, please call us to reschedule your in office appointment.
