As a valued member of the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group (LIPSG) patient community, we appreciate the trust you place in us.
Beginning May 26th, Long Island Plastic Surgical Group and New York Plastic Surgical will be expanding hours in our Garden City, Babylon, New York City, East Hills, and Flushing locations with enhanced contact precautions. We have re-opened our operating suites in Garden City, and we await instruction from the government on the reopening of our operating suite in New York City. Our Brooklyn and Huntington locations will reopen the week of June 1st. Deep Blue Med Spa will be open for physician-related services only beginning June 1st as well.
Throughout this pandemic, providing a safe environment for our patients and our employees has been paramount. As we look to increase office hours and expand our essential staff on-site, we will continue to implement appropriate policies informed by industry best practices, this includes:
• Social distancing techniques that include fewer patients and providers in the offices
• All LIPSG staff to wear personal protective equipment at all times
• Assessing patients for COVID-19 risks prior to coming into the office
• Temperature checks of all patients
• Monitoring any employee and /or patient COVID-19 cases or exposure
• Sanitation and disinfection of common and high-traffic areas
While we are putting extensive safety measures in place, we understand that some patients will prefer to delay treatment or conduct a video visit. For these patients, we will continue to offer remote care options. You can easily book a virtual appointment with our physicians by clicking here. As always, we remain available to our patients 24/7 through our 877-DR-STITCH service for the immediate and urgent treatment of lacerations, burns, complex wounds, facial trauma, and hand injuries.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to safely treat our patients. If you’re in need of additional information we suggest referring to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
We look forward to seeing you soon, be it in our offices or onscreen.
Stay safe, and be well.
