A Message from Dr. Ladd Concerning COVID-19

At Tru-Skin Dermatology we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff. We are closely following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control, the Texas Department of State Health Services and the World Health Organization with regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

All Tru-Skin Dermatology locations will remain open so that our patients can have continued access to the important therapies they require. We will continue to ensure a safe, superior experience for all our patients and employees.

We would like to share with you what we do at all Tru-Skin Dermatology locations to ensure your safety.

What We Always Do:

  • Daily cleaning and sterilization of our patient spaces with CDC-approved isopropanol and ammonium chloride.
  • Single-use items like gloves, gauze, gowns, cotton balls and q-tips are disposed of after each patient in properly designated bins.
  • Disinfect all instruments in a multi-step process including anti-microbial washing, ultrasonic sterilization and autoclave sterilization using extreme heat and pressure.
  • Change exam chair paper and wipe down patient and visitor chairs between each patient using CDC-approved disinfectants.
  • Require each employee to cleanse their hands appropriately before and after each patient visit.

Additional Measures We’re Taking:

  • Ensuring that all staff who experience symptoms have easy and rapid access to COVID-19 testing and the resources to self quarantine if necessary.
  • Encouraging our patients to stay home if they feel sick. (We are happy to reschedule appointments and to discuss treatment options if you are currently undergoing therapies.)
  • Wiping down common areas, including waiting room door handles, chairs and items with CDC-approved disinfectant multiple times a day.
  • Providing 60% or higher alcohol-based hand sanitizer in common areas for staff and patients use.

Please feel free to contact us through phone, text, email or online chat with questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ladd
