An update from The Center for Plastic Surgery about COVID-19…
Last week we received a letter from the Kentucky Health and Family Services stating that
“Based on the predicted surge of COVID-19 patients and the medical resources that will be required to treat them healthcare providers in the Commonwealth are hereby directed by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department of Public Health to cancel all procedures that in the opinion of a physician the delay will not cause harm to the patient or negatively affect the patient’s life expectancy.”
This took place at midnight on March 18,2020 and included all levels of care.
Released today, 3/23/2020 the following was also added:
“Under all circumstances where clinically possible, use of telephonic or video communication to provide telemedicine services is strongly urged. Medicare and Medicaid have WAIVED typical telemedicine and HIPAA requirements and you may even used non-HIPAA compliant video services such as FaceTime, Skype and others during this state of emergency”
So for now while we remain closed for face to face encounters, we are pleased to offer anyone who wishes a:
FREE ONLINE CONSULTATION
directly either with myself or with Janet (our patient care coordinator). Through a HIPAA compliant website, that we have used for years, known as Touch MD, you can upload your own photos which we can then view together and discuss your individual needs and treatment plan.
Also, with the news from the Kentucky Health department if you cannot use Touch MD we can also FaceTime or even use Skype.
From facial rejuvenation to breast surgery and liposuction/body contouring we can discuss it all. Even injectables or skin care if you wish. Also if you have been thinking of a breast reduction we can obtain all of your information needed, submit it to your insurance company for pre-approval, and get you scheduled, all online!
My practice has changed again and we are on it!!
If you have been thinking of plastic surgery but never had the time to come in for a consultation now is the best time while you are at home!!
I want to thank all of my patients who were scheduled this week and next week for your understanding. We will reschedule you as soon as possible!
My staff and I have been working hard to make this transition as easy as possible. I want everyone to know that when we are allowed to see patients again, we will make ourselves available for extended hours if necessary.
I can assure you these consultations are just as private as they are in my office.
Please fill out the form below and we will contact you ASAP to schedule your personal consultation!
All the best and stay healthy and safe!
