UPDATE MARCH 22, 2020 :
I appreciate that you are receiving many letters like this, but as my patient, I want you to know how we’re responding during these challenging times.
First and foremost, I hope you are staying well. As a medical practice, Wolin Plastic Surgery is adjusting to the current circumstances that all of us are facing during this unprecedented time. With information moving so quickly, we think it’s important to keep you informed of the measures we’re taking to ensure the health of both our patients and staff. As you’d expect, all decisions we’re making are being guided by the counsel of outside public health experts, including the CDC and local health authorities.
We have made the proactive decision to immediately stop performing elective surgeries. This reduces the need to order supplies desperately needed to protect healthcare providers treating Covid-19 patients and it protects you and our staff from spreading the virus. For the time being, patient appointments and consultations will be done via online video whenever possible. Of course any post surgical follow up appointments can still be done in person if needed.
However, secure online video appointments, also known as TeleMedicine, allow us meet patients, answer questions and provide advice using your smart phone or computer.
In an ironic twist, some patients currently social distancing at home have asked about non surgical procedures, like facial peels. They want to use this time to heal and recover in the privacy of their own homes outside the view of coworkers or friends. We are finishing details to provide services safely in homes like yours under my medical supervision. Watch your email for more information soon.
I am acutely aware of the emotional, financial and general stress level this pandemic is causing. I hope that providing services that help you feel better about your appearance can also help you feel like normal life is just around the corner.
We all need to support our each other at this difficult time…this time will come to pass.
