Although many things have changed recently, one thing has stayed the same: our commitment to the safety of our patients and staff. As ME Plastic Surgery reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Our approach closely follows the latest recommendations from the New York State Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization.
ME Plastic Surgery is proud to be a place where our community and staff can feel comfortable and cared for. We are following a carefully designed plan to safeguard the health of everyone who receives or provides face-to-face care. Our safety protocols include the following:
Patients with a procedure scheduled must have a COVID-19 PCR test performed less than 72 hours in advance and receive a negative result. Self-quarantine is required after the test. This policy exceeds the requirements set by the New York State Department of Health.
On any days when multiple procedures are scheduled, the first patient will be discharged from the recovery bay before the next patient is admitted to allow for complete turnover of the pre-op and post-op areas.
You can assist us in maintaining a safe environment by:
We are continuing to provide virtual consultations as an initial step before an in-person appointment. This is a great way to gather preliminary information about your treatment options while getting the opportunity to have a casual discussion directly with your surgeon and see how well you vibe, from the comfort of your own private space. We welcome both new and existing patients to schedule virtual appointments.
As always, we care about not only your health and safety, but also your overall experience with us. We’re here to assist in any way if you have concerns or questions about our COVID-19 policies. We thank you for your continued support and confidence in Dr. Everett and the ME Plastic Surgery team.
Dr. Marc Everett will sit down with you during a one-on-one consultation to evaluate your concerns and determine a treatment plan that is right for you. Call us today at 212-774-7715 to book your appointment.
