Our latest updates regarding Coronavirus Disease
Dermatology Associates has resumed most in-office operations.
We are happy to see you!
1. We ask that you attend your appointment alone (unless you have a medical condition which requires assistance or are a minor) in order to limit the number of people in the office at a time.
3. We continue to observe all CDC guidelines, including requiring a non-contact temperature scan on the forehead of any patient or employee who comes into one of our buildings.
2. A mask MUST be worn during your appointment.
We will also continue telemedicine appointments to serve patients that prefer to have a virtual consultation from home.
At this time, cosmetic procedures are limited to Botox and fillers.
We appreciate all of our cosmetics patients understanding as we have limited elective cosmetic procedures due to COVID-19 at the present time.
Dr. Stephen Flax, our Board Certified Dermatologist will continue to provide aesthetic nonsurgical procedures for those patients interested in facial enhancement through the use of Botox and fillers.
Our practice will continue to sell cosmetic products, but at this time products are limited and will be ordered based on demand.
Patients needing refills for cosmetic prescriptions will still need to be seen by appointment. Prescriptions will be sent to the pharmacy as our practice will no longer sell in house.
Telemedicine services are covered by most major
insurance companies. Please contact your insurance provider to verify.
How To Use Telemedicine Services
Telemedicine is a process where we can facilitate health services including medical advice, provider and patient education, health information services, and self-care support via digital communication.
Social Distancing: Procedure For All In-Person Appointments
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, please note our current procedure for facilitating appointments while limiting exposure to other individuals:
We will call you a day before your appointment.
When you arrive to Dermatology Associates for your appointment, drive in and park for your appointment.
Upon arrival, call in to let us know you've arrived:
Amherst location: (540) 667-0500
Cedar Creek Grade: (540) 486-4399
Front Royal: (540) 486-4398
When you call, if there is no one in the waiting room, we'll have you come in long enough to fill out your paperwork and head to your appointment. If there are already a maximum number of people in the waiting room, we'll ask you to remain in your car and we'll call you when it's time for your appointment. Each location supports only a limited number of people in the lobby areas to maintain safe social distancing. Please respect our standards for maintaining these measures to ensure your safety.
You MUST WEAR A FACEMASK when you are inside our facility at all times, unless it is necessary to be removed in your examination room during your consultation or treatment.
Infection and Cleanliness Protocols
Dermatology Associates, Inc. will be continuing to follow the recommended guidelines of the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) through the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find the latest information and reference to the CDC cleaning and disinfecting guidance here, on the CDC website.
Our lobby areas will be completely cleaned and disinfected throughout the day: before opening, midday and again upon closure of the office at day's end. Each patient exam room will be cleaned and disinfected throughly between each patient visit.
We thank you, again, for allowing us to serve you and continue to keep you safe!
