Starting March 23, 2020, May River Dermatology, LLC will be transitioning to virtual visits (via video conference) for all routine appointments. Below is a link to quick video from Dr. Traywick explaining this decision as we work to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Below are links to documents (.pdf) and videos with some helpful information on how to prepare and what to expect during a virtual visit.
We also want to provide some videos on how to properly use your phone to conduct a virtual visit to make things go as smoothly as possible.
Below is a video from Dr. Sarradet explaining some best practices to keep in mind when taking photos that will be sent to the practice for review.
Only urgent surgical cases that have already been scheduled will be seen in the office at this time. The CDC and SC DHEC are recommending that any person that is not feeling well or sick with cold/flu like symptoms please stay home. Only medically necessary support will be allowed to enter the office with patients.
***MUSC is offering a free online service. If you are having flu like symptoms you can go to their Virtual Care website and be diagnosed by medical personnel. Go to the website below and set up an account and at the payment screen use code word “COVID19”. Again, this is a free service offered by MUSC.****
With COVID-19 having the biggest impact on older patients and those with suppressed immune systems, you may wonder if continuing biologic treatment is a good idea. In a soon-to-be-published letter to the editor in JAAD evaluating this question, the authors concluded, “We do not know if biologic therapies render patients more susceptible to coronavirus, but we know that in a pre-coronavirus era, respiratory infection rates were comparable to placebo. Conversely, discontinuation of some biologics can result in loss of response when treatments are reintroduced or even result in the formation of antibodies to the discontinued biologic. All of these factors must be considered when advising patients about continuing or discontinuing biologic therapies.”
Biologics used in our office include:
1. Any patient with fever (temp higher than 99 degrees F) or cold symptoms who is on a biologic must discontinue immediately.
2. Any patient with known or suspected exposure to covid-19 should discontinue immediately.
3. Other patients including eldery, those with comorbidities or other concerns will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
This is a fluid situation so recommendations may change as more information is available. If you are unsure about whether you should stop your biologic, please call our office and a physician will review on a case by case basis to determine the best course of action.
We are proud to have the most talented and caring providers in order to deliver the best care to our patients. We look forward to serving you, and your family, for your skin care needs.
