*Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement*

Dear Valued MDLSV Patients:

First and foremost, we hope that you are healthy and safe during this challenging time in our world.

Today, the Maryland Secretary of Health issued an executive order that forbids non-urgent medical procedures and appointments effective 5 pm Tuesday, March 24, 2020 for the duration of the catastrophic health emergency.

As a healthcare facility, we are legally able to stay open in a limited fashion to provide you only with urgent dermatologic care at this time.

Elective, non-urgent, non-emergent medical procedures and office visits cannot be done until the situation improves.

We must all act together to reduce the spread of the virus We are only permitted to perform procedures on patients for matters considered urgent, emergent or life-threatening.

What does this mean for you? It means that your currently scheduled appointment will likely need to be rescheduled or cancelled. For your safety, for the safety of our staff, and in order to remain compliant with executive orders, you can only be seen if your condition is considered urgently necessary.

While some exclusions might apply, these are the general criteria we are following:

Necessary/Urgent/Emergent Conditions:

  1. Removal of a biopsy-confirmed skin cancer IF postponing that procedure for a few weeks or month would be life-threatening
  2. New, worrisome or changing skin lesions, rashes or conditions that are of serious concern to you or that might be cancerous or infected
  3. Painful, inflamed, infected or worsening skin lesions or conditions
You will need to discuss your problem with a medical assistant to schedule any appointment.

Non-Urgent/Non-Emergent Conditions:

Annual or semi-annual screening total body skin exams (with no lesions or conditions of concern to you at this time)
  • Asymptomatic or minor dermatologic conditions
  • Aesthetic/cosmetic procedures
  • Medication refills
  • Acne, rosacea or rash follow-up visits
  • Minor rashes
  • Surgical procedures for benign, asymptomatic lesions (for example: cysts, lipomas, moles)
  • Scar treatments
  • Varicose vein treatment unless there is active bleeding

  • If you do need to be seen, please know that we will continue to follow strict cleanliness protocols.

    Please absolutely do not enter our office if you exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 infection, have been exposed to someone diagnosed with or exhibiting symptoms of a COVID-19 infection, or have traveled to a high risk area. Also exercise caution in entering any populated facility if you are immunocompromised or if you have multiple or complex underlying medical conditions.

    If you have not already been contacted by a member of our staff, please contact our office prior to arriving for your scheduled appointment. Many of you will be asked to either reschedule until the executive order expires.

    Here at MDLSV we are working to implement a telemedicine system. Until that is formalized, you may choose to call the office at 410-666-3960 or email your question to Please keep in mind that while our email is relatively secure, by choosing to send a question by email, you are acknowledging that email carries a potential risk of security breach.

    These challenging times require temporary measures that will help us stay safe and healthy. All of us look forward to the passing of this storm, and will be here for you when it is safe to resume our normal professional activities.
