On behalf of the Dermatologists, Registered Nurses and Administrative staff at Central Sydney Dermatology we would like to convey our gratitude to our patients for their patronage thru this challenging year. We wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you again in 2021.
Central Sydney Dermatology is proud to acknowledge World Skin Day 2020!
This has been a challenging year for everyone and we would like to thank our patients who have been extremely patient in this current crisis.
We have offered telehealth services over the last few months to the elderly, those in remote areas, those in isolation/quarantine and even those overseas.
Our doors are open and we look forward to welcoming our patients back in person in a COVID safe practice.
Due to the continuing cluster outbreaks within the Greater Sydney region, we are now asking patients attending appointments to please wear a mask.
Central Sydney Dermatology has continued to operate throughout the pandemic adjusting our appointment schedule and operations to meet current requirements. This includes but is not limited to the following measures:
- Reduced number of appointments available to meet social distancing requirements.
- Request that only the patient attend for appointments and only 1 carer to accompany where necessary.
- All staff and patients are temperature checked on arrival.
- Patients (and any accompanying persons) are requested to wear masks when in the practice.
- Staff are required to wear masks when working near (within 1.5m) patients. This includes administrative staff.
- Consulting and treatment rooms, reception area including EFTPOS machines cleaned between patients.
- Telehealth consults, mainly phone but video is available if necessary. Only for current patients.
Any person who has an appointment and may have been in contact with positive COVID-19 persons are asked to call the practice and cancel their appointment. We will rebook the appointment for a date when you are clear of any quarantine period.
We are now able to book patients for anti-wrinkle injections, chemical peels and other cosmetic treatments.
Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19 and government requirements for social distancing, we are not able to book appointments as easily and frequently as previous.
Our dermatologists will continue to prioritise appointments for those patients with melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, psoriasis, eczema and acne increasing in severity, adverse reactions to medications and other medical dermatology issues.
Our receptionists will endeavour to book you an appointment at a time convenient for you, however we ask for your patience and flexibility in doing so.
As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) this practice will not see any patients within 14 days of their return from overseas travel.
This is to protect both patients and staff as we have many people attending our rooms with lower immunity or who are elderly.
If you have a planned appointment within 14 days of intended travel please call 02 9221 1477, our reception staff will reschedule your appointment.
If have been exposed and are showing symptoms please call Health direct hotline 1800 022 222.
Our last day of practice for the year will be 20th December 2019.
Dr Sue Ng will be here to see patients on Monday 6th January 2020.
Dr Erin Mullan has appointments available on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th January 2020.
Dr Philip Tong has appointments on Tuesday 7th January 2020.
All of these Dermatologists have appointments available to book online for existing patients of the practice.
