A very common question we are receiving during this pandemic is “Should I go to the Emergency room or can I go to a Dermatology office for certain skin problems?
These days, Emergency rooms and urgent care centers are inundated with people who need testing or treatment for the Coronavirus, and at those locations, the risks of getting infected with COVID 19 increases exponentially.
To support front-line health care workers, preserve scarce ER resources, and especially to protect your own health, please remember that our experienced medical team is well-trained to provide care due to animal bites, allergic reactions, rashes, lacerations, burns, and many other skin conditions for which you would normally think about going to the ER.
So next time that a situation involving your skin occurs, please consider an in-office or telemedicine consultation with one of our experienced Florida Skin Center’s Dermatology providers rather than visiting the ER or walk-in clinic.
We are all in this together, and FSC is just a phone-call or click away, ready to provide the best dermatologic service while protecting your overall health. We look forward to seeing you soon in one of our four offices or online. Call us today to schedule your next visit, we have appointments available immediately!
