Dear Patients of Dermatology Partners of Western NY:
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) has begun to impact our local communities, we want to let our patients know how our team has prepared and will continue to prepare in the days, weeks and months to come as we continue to receive details of this pandemic.
First and foremost, we practice Universal Precautions every day, not just in the event of an outbreak. Universal Precautions include hand washing, hand sanitizing, wearing personal protective equipment, sterilization and disinfection of all instruments, etc. By following these precautions, our team not only stays safe, our patients stay safe as well.
You will notice if you are coming in for an appointment that in our reception area all magazines, brochures and other literature have been removed for the time being. All surfaces of the reception area including front doors, doorknobs, bathrooms, etc. are disinfected multiple times a day.
Please know that any of our staff members who are sick, running a fever, or who may have been in contact with someone who is sick have been advised to not come to work.
YOU CAN HELP TOO! If you have an upcoming essential appointment, please do not bring in friends or family members with you unless their assistance is needed for your visit. We kindly ask that if you or a family member is sick, please reschedule your appointment. There are no penalties, no broken appointment fees in doing so. We will gladly reschedule for you. We value the health of our patients and our team; we are taking this issue very seriously.
Our team will continue to work hard to preserve the well-being and health of our patients while practicing the guidelines outlined by the Monroe County Medical Society and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Dr. Joseph Wojciechowski, Dr. Allison Holm and Dr. Susan Psaila
