Dear ACDA Clients,

During this COVID-19 Pandemic, we are continuously monitoring recommendations from public health experts, the CDC, the American Academy of Dermatology and our State and Federal Governments. 

In an effort to help combat the spread of COVID-19, we are doing the following:        

  1. Implementing measures to minimize chance of exposure to COVID-19 before patient arrival, upon arrival, throughout the duration of the patient’s visit.
  2. Temperature checks for all who enter the office.
  3. Following strict disinfection guidelines.
  4. Prescreening patients via telephone for possible symptoms (Cough, sore throat or fever) or exposure.
  5. Minimize the number of people who attend appointments to reduce risk..

The current situation with COVID-19 is a dynamic situation requiring frequent changes and we will strive to provide care for our clients keeping in mind the safety of our clients and their families as well as our staff and their families.

Please contact our office with any questions or concerns at 630.455.1756
