COVID-19 Precautions

Iowa Dermatology Consultants continues to serve patients safely in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our top priority is the safety and well-being of patients and staff.

Iowa Dermatology Consultants urges any patients to reschedule appointments if:

  • You have a fever
  • You feel ill with a fever, cough, or other upper respiratory symptoms
  • You have been diagnosed with COVID-19
  • You have been in contact with someone recently diagnosed with COVID-19

When you visit our clinic, you are no longer required to wear a mask. If you would prefer our staff mask during your appointment, please let the receptionist know when you check in and we will accommodate your request. 

We also ask that you complete as much paperwork online and electronically, including insurance information, via a secure and encrypted website before arriving at our clinic.  You can find all of the forms in the For Patients section of our website.

Our Commitment To Safety

We continue to take these precautions for the safety of our patients and staff including:

Hand sanitizer placed at check-in for patients to use immediately upon entering our clinic

Public surfaces and exam rooms disinfected regularly

Protective gear for our staff when requested by patients
