Policy Update Concerning COVID-19

Office closed as of Friday, March 27 View Update

To Our Patients,

We are adjusting to the current circumstances that all of us are facing during these challenging times surrounding COVID-19. In order to best protect the safety of our patients and to limit the spread of coronavirus, effective Friday, March 27, we will temporarily close all of our offices until further notice.

This closing is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with state and federal recommendations, as well as those of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Academy of Dermatology. Between March 23-27, to minimize office traffic and protect our patients and employees, we will only be seeing urgent and emergent cases. Additionally, should patients have flu-like symptoms, a cough, fever, or recent travel history outside the United States, we recommend those appointments be rescheduled.

We are available for our patients and remain at your service during this difficult time. We will be initiating a telemedicine system with virtual visits in the coming days and will have more information regarding this system available soon.

To our postoperative patients, please contact us for any questions about your care. If you’re interested in a consultation for cosmetic services, please go to: https://ppsd.com/locations/

Please stay in touch via Facebook, Instagram, and our website. We realize these are uncertain times as the world navigates this pandemic, and PPSD is fully committed to ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our patients and staff.
