Northern Bergen Dermatology is now open with new AlwaysSafe Procedures. Telemedicine appointments remain available for patients who prefer to be seen virtually.

The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Northern Bergen Dermatology Group is following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and state and city health officials as we care for our patients. We have outlined our new AlwaysSafe procedures below to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable returning to our office.

CHECK-IN AT OUR OFFICE:
 

  • All patients will be texted or emailed information that allows you to register prior to arriving at our office.

  • All patients will be screened for COVID symptoms and COVID contact history prior to the visit.

  • Patient's temperatures will be checked and anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be rescheduled.

  • We will require patients to wear face masks at all times while coming, staying and exiting the office. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. We will provide you with hand sanitizer as you enter our office.

  • We are going to ask that you limit visitors joining you unless accompanying a minor or for critical transportation, communication or personal care.

  • Patients will be encouraged to wait outside or in their car until an exam room is available and the patient is ready to be seen. We will contact patients via Klara text messaging or phone call when the room is ready. We will be limiting the number of patients in our waiting room to allow for proper social distancing. 

  • Our staff personnel will not work at our offices if they have any COVID related symptoms, and they will be screened at the start of each workday for fever and sent home if appropriate.

  • Our staff will wear masks and appropriate protective equipment (PPE) and take every precautionary step to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and employees.

CLEANING OUR FACILITY:

  • We will disinfect each patient room before and after every patient visit. iPads will be disinfected after each patient.  Doorknobs, desks, counters, frequently touched areas and equipment are wiped down repeatedly throughout the day.

  • The waiting room will be cleaned throughout the day.

  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available at check-in and exam rooms, and hand washing may be done in our exam rooms and bathroom facilities.

  • Our policies are aligned with the latest COVID-19 guidelines issued by CDC, OSHA and local government officials. 

Ensuring your safety and wellbeing is of utmost importance to us!  Call to make your appointment today or request an appointment thru Klara on our website.
