Dear Center for Cosmetic and Clinical Dermatology Patients,

We have reopened our practice for dermatologic issues that need to be addressed in person. Due to the threat of the coronavirus pandemic, we have changed our operating policies and hours to ensure the safety of both our staff and our patients. All patients will be screened for flu-like symptoms and coronavirus exposure prior to being seen in the office. Patients will be seen alone unless they need a caregiver with them at the visit. Other companions should wait outside the building. Anyone who enters the office must wear a mask at all times.

In addition, we will be available for virtual visits via telemedicine technology for patients who do not feel comfortable coming to the office. Virtual visits are processed through insurance, and you will be billed after the visit is concluded.

To schedule a remote appointment, please call the office at 301-977-2070. A staff member will help you schedule an appointment. We will activate your telemedicine account, and instructions will be sent to you on how to access the PocketPatient system. This can be accessed both on a computer and a mobile device. If you do not have access to either, a phone visit can be scheduled that will also be processed through your insurance.

In case of a medical emergency, please go to urgent care. For dermatologic issues that require immediate attention after hours, please continue to call 301-576-4484 to reach the paging system of the provider on call.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this difficult time.

Thank you,
Drs. Ford and Rothman, Jennifer Whitman PA-C, and Staff
