To Our Valued Patients and Friends,
On behalf of myself, our Physician Assistants, Alli Rayner and Ashley Syler, and the rest of the Jupiter Dermatology staff, we hope that you and your families have stayed healthy and safe during the COVID-19 quarantine. We have missed the hustle and bustle of our practice, and we are eager to return to our ‘new NORMAL.’ Today, Monday, May 4, 2020, Governor DeSantis, via executive order, gave the green light for our reopening. While this is great news, we want to ensure you that our highest priority will continue to be your safety and well-being.
In the midst of this global pandemic, we want you to know that we have been following all the recommended CDC guidelines for remaining virus-free. Additionally, to provide care for non-emergencies, we implemented Telemedicine, a remote consultation solution through the Doxy.me application. Because this solution offers an added level of care, telemedicine consultations will continue to be offered. Should you prefer to schedule a telemedicine consultation, simply click (or log onto via a web browser) the following link: Doxy.me/Jupiterderm or call our office at 561-748-0510.
Additionally, please note our office has, and will continue to exceed all regulatory guidelines for safety and sanitization. We have always adhered to the highest standards of cleanliness, and during this pandemic, we implemented even higher levels of cleaning and sanitization into our processes. To further your safety, we are also pre-screening all patients to minimize the exposure of the virus to you, and our staff. Below are the pre-screening policies and procedures implemented for all patients requesting an appointment.
Lastly, if you are in need of a post-quarantine “pick me up”, we are extending the offer of our popular Botox Frozen Friday Special to the following dates: May 4-15, and May 22 and May 29th.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our practice, and ‘getting through this, together’.
Dr. Ricardo Mejia
