Out of abundance of caution, as of Wednesday 3/18/20, we at Central Park South Dermatology have decided to temporary close our doors. We are doing our part to #flatten the curve and hope you do the same. We are following the CDC and NY recommendations and will be opening as soon as deemed safe.
In the interim, if you have any dermatologic concerns that need to be addressed, we will be offering virtual dermatology consultations. You can practice social distancing while minimizing your risk of COVID-19 exposure and get evaluated and treated in the comfort of your own home!
If you are interested in scheduling a telemedicine visit with Dr. Robin Blum or Melissa Bennett, PA-C, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment for telemedicine varies with insurance plans. We will submit to your insurance, but if your insurance does not cover the visit we will charge a reduced flat rate of $75. As of now, Medicare has agreed to pay for this service. Visits can take place via facetime or on the phone. We will do whatever we can to accommodate your needs. If you choose to participate in this service, you will need to sign a waiver acknowledging that this does not follow usual HIPAA policies. Please see attached LINK for informed consent for telemedicine services.
For those of you with dermatologic concerns that cannot be addressed via telemedicine, we may be offering limited in-office visits, depending on the recommendations of the CDC and NY guide lines. Please email us for more information.
We appreciate your patience as we adjust to this new way of life and practicing medicine. Feel free to email us at email@example.com or call us at 212-969-9655 with any questions. We are here for you during this uncertain time! All of us at Central Park South Dermatology hope you stay safe and healthy. We hope to see you soon in person!
