Your health and safety is our first priority. Although everyone is eager to visit the office, we feel it is best to approach the re-opening in a very cautious manner. Coronavirus is still in the community, and since we see patients of all age groups, please be conscious about the risks to others.
We are screening all patients for risk of COVID-19 and will reschedule any patients who fall into any risk category. For your safety, our office will be sanitized between every patient visit. For the safety of others, we request that you come to the office wearing a mask and wear it throughout the visit. We will continue to offer online consultations / appointments for any patients who desire.
While Governor Abbott's GA-15 does allow resumption of elective surgery on May 9th, we cannot immediately resume business as normal. All "elective" operations have been on hold for weeks, and in addition to cosmetic / aesthetic procedures, these include certain types of cancer surgeries, hip replacements, gallbladder removals, chronic pain nerve ablation, etc. These more "urgent" elective operations are being given priority over more truely elective operations. Facilities are resuming slowly due to new time requirements imposed by COVID-19, limitations in resources, staff, and available operating room time. Some procedures which are inherently high risk due to Covid-19 (such as rhinoplasty) are currently restricted based on national recommendations. While we frequently have out of state & international patients fly in for surgery, current restrictions make this impractical for certain geographic locations. We look forward to the day when we can again safely see patients from around the world.
We all feel the frustration of not being able to go back to normal immediately, but for everyone’s safety, we must approach this in a safe and judicious manner. We are here to help, and will do everything we can to address your concerns as is medically prudent.
