COVID-19 Precautions

UPDATE AS OF 04/21/22

Masks are optional for all employees and patients at Central Texas Dermatology and SkinCare Austin. You are welcome to wear one at all times if you like. If a patient requests the team wear a mask in the exam room, we will comply.

As always, practice good hygiene–wash your hands, and if you feel ill stay home.

Central Texas Dermatology is fully open and here to serve all of your medical, surgical and aesthetic skincare needs in a safe environment. Because the health of our patients and office staff is of the utmost importance, we are taking extensive COVID-19 safety precautions.

When you visit Central Texas Dermatology and SkinCare Austin, you will experience the following additional safety measures for your protection:

  • We’ve implemented rapid check-in to ensure you don’t wait alongside other patients. We check you in quickly and get you to a private room away from others while you await your appointment with your provider.
  • We’ve implemented health screenings for each person entering the office, both patients and staff.
  • Our staff thoroughly sanitizes each room between patients.

How are you sanitizing at Central Texas Dermatology?

We thoroughly clean and sanitize all common areas, exam rooms, and other care areas in between every use. Hand sanitizer is readily available for our patients and visitors.

Can I bring a companion?

To reduce risk of infection, we must limit visitors. If you need someone to assist you during the visit, we certainly understand. Otherwise, we must ask that you leave non-essential visitors and family members at home.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Masks are now optional.

Are you social distancing when possible?

To keep you safe, we are social distancing inside our office. We are taking patients directly back to exam rooms as soon as possible. Waiting rooms have been reconfigured to accommodate recommended guidelines, with at least 6 feet between chairs.

Congratulations to Dr. Trizna on his upcoming retirement July 19!
