During the current provincial lockdown measures, we are looking at ways to stay connected to our loyal patients. While we are open and can see some of you within limitations of the current guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health, Ottawa Public Health, the College of Physicians/Surgeon, and the College of Nurses of Ontario; we are applying precautionary judgement to what we feel is in the best interest of the staff and patients.
Therefore, we are attempting to defer as many in-office visits as possible, seeing only those patients who require medical dermatology care or urgent dermatology concerns, either as a new patient or as a follow-up to a recently prescribed therapy or medication.
Dr. Chris Sibley, one of our Associate Dermatologists at Laserderm, also happens to hold a Ph.D. in Infectious Diseases. We have never been so appreciative of this additional credentialing, it has allowed us to operate with the confidence that, as our Medical Officer for Covid19 Safety, Dr. Sibley has been leading our team in ensuring our safety as well as the safety of our patients.
Please welcome me in thanking Dr. Sibley and all other Infectious Disease specialists out there working so hard in helping us understand the nature of this pandemic, and how we will get through this. Please please get vaccinated when the option becomes available to you.
Dear Laserderm Family: While we cannot see many of you or be part of your care during this current lockdown, please know that we are here for you. If you would just like a call from one of our Dermatologists or nurses, even if it is just to chat, please please reach out. We would love to know you are okay, are staying healthy, and we look forward to serving you again.
Sunny Kim, BScN, on behalf of Dr. Chris Sibley and the rest of the Laserderm team.
