After months of prohibition, elective surgery is now authorized in New Jersey.
We are happy to announce that Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 145, allowing elective surgeries and invasive procedures, both medical and dental, to resume on Tuesday, May 26 at 5:00 a.m.
We are starting our office consultations and procedures on June first. The safety of our patients is our primary objective. We are taking all the social distancing precautions by limiting consults and follow-ups to one patient at a time. Initially, we will see one patient per hour. We ask that you call the office when you get to our parking lot to make sure the previous patient has left or is about to leave before you enter our office. Patients should come to the office by themselves and ask their company or their driver to wait in the car. We will also ask you some preliminary questions about the way you feel before you walk in. When you enter, we will measure your temperature. We will all be wearing a mask and will make sure all surfaces are sanitized prior to your arrival. We will perform office procedures wearing a mask, gown, and eye protection. While in the office, we will respect social distancing. Surgery will be scheduled as soon as we can get time in the operating rooms. As you might expect, there are a few months’ worth of elective cases to be performed and it takes time for cosmetic cases to be scheduled. We will make every effort to accommodate all of our patients. Please call our office to schedule your consultation, follow-up, or procedure including Dysport, Restylane, and other filler injections.
