OFFICE CLEANLINESS MEASURES

  • At the front door, we will ask about your current state of health and check your temperature. 


  • We will be limiting seating in the waiting room to maintain a distance of 6 feet in between patients. We will be asking most patients to wait in your car, and we will come get you when your room is sanitized and ready for your appointment.


  • Our standard process involves wiping down all surfaces, tables, and chairs in patient rooms at the beginning of the day, after every patient encounter, and at the end of the day.


  • Our UPDATED process for COVID-19 will ALSO involve wiping down all surfaces and points of contact in our entire waiting room and office at least once an hour throughout the day and as needed/requested.


  • Hand Sanitizer will also be available.


  • We apologize for the inconvenience, but we have removed frequently handled items from our waiting rooms and exam rooms, such as magazines.


  • We are working to secure 'sneeze-guard' protectors at our front desks.


  • All employees of Durango Dermatology will be wearing masks.


  • Appointment times will be spaced out to limit the number of people in the office at once.
