A MESSAGE CONCERNING COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

A MESSAGE FROM DR MARCUS CONCERNING COVID-19

Dear Marcus Medical Spa Patients,

As you are likely aware, due to COVID 19, the office has been closed to seeing patients until April 20th. This is our planned date of reopening but things still might change depending on further state mandates or health concerns for our patients or staff.

Although we won’t be seeing patients, we will be offering “curbside pick-up only” of medical grade skincare products 10am – 12pm daily. Please place your orders through email only at info@marcusmedicalspa.com . Instructions for pick up will be given when your order is ready. As shipping centers such as UPS and FedEx are still open, we can also simply ship products directly to your house. If you are in any way sick or have been exposed to anyone who is sick we ask that you use this shipping option.

As a medical facility, we will still be seeing patients on an emergency basis. Dr. Marcus and Donna Duffy, RN will still be on call to see emergency patients. If an emergency arises, we will conform to the standards and best practices set forth by community health. We will engage in social distancing and treat patients with full precautions including masks and gloves. All chairs, doorknobs, drawer pulls, countertops and equipment will be wiped with antibacterial/antiviral wipes between patients.

We have decided to add virtual consults for those who would like to plan and schedule future procedures. There will be a $75 charge for consultations, but you will have priority to scheduling your procedure when we reopen. Consults will be conducted on Zoom or FaceTime. Email us at info@marcusmedicalspa.com to book your consultation.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while we navigate these unprecedented times.

Please stay safe and healthy!

Sincerely, Dr. Marcus and The Marcus Medical Spa Family.
