COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Pacific Skin Institute Patients,

We recognize the impact of the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19 and we understand you may be feeling concerned. At Pacific Skin Institute, we are following guidelines from public health authorities to ensure the health and safety of our patients, physicians, staff, and the community. As we do our part to contain the spread of COVID-19, we want to remind you to call us to reschedule your appointment if you or a family member has a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or any signs of illness in the last 72 hours. We will be as flexible as possible in rescheduling your appointment.

Please be assured, we are also offering live digital and interactive patient appointments through Teledermatology. Call our office at (916) 925-7020 to schedule your virtual appointment.

We have always adhered to the highest standards of cleanliness, disinfection, and sterilization practices in accordance with all regulatory agencies, and we will be expanding these to the common areas as well. 

We will be taking these additional steps during this time:

  • Disinfecting waiting areas, door handles, and bathrooms frequently.
  • Asking screening questions to patients about COVID-19 before entering their appointment.
  • Hosting video appointments for routine check-ups and consultations.
  • Touchless sign in procedures.
  • We encourage parents, siblings, and other companions to wait outside or in their car .
Advice On Staying Healthy
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds regularly with soap and water.
  • Alcohol hand sanitizers are also effective.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick (and keep sick children home from school).
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. If you use a tissue, wash your hands afterwards.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Thank you for your understanding, support, and cooperation as we face this challenge together.


Stay well,
Pacific Skin Institute
