COVID-19 Update

We are open for normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8-5.

We are still seeing patients for their essential dermatology needs.

All skin cancer screenings, spot checks for areas of concern, surgery, superficial radiation therapy and suture removal appointments are being seen.

We have temporarily suspended appointments for acne, medication refills, and all cosmetic procedures. We will resume these appointments as soon as restrictions have been lifted and we feel it is safe to do so.

Please have confidence that we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients.

At Douglas R. Swinehart, M.D. we value the safety of our employees, patients, and visitors.  In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk of potential exposure we are implementing some new policies effective immediately.  In these unprecedented times, it is important that we come together to support all those impacted by this crisis.  Your patience and understanding are appreciated during this time.

You can count on us to continue to do our best to serve you and keep you informed.  Our office will remain open – we are here to help.

Our top priority is the safety of our patients and our employees.  We have done a series of things to make our environment as safe as possible.

  • Enhanced cleaning procedures in our front and back office following CDC and Public Health Guidelines.
  • We are requesting patients come to their appointment by themselves with the exception of a caretaker.
  • In an effort to practice social distancing within the waiting room, we have removed some chairs to allow extra space.
  • Effective March 20, 2020 we are implementing a questionnaire at the front desk to pre-screen patients.  If you answer “Yes” to any of the questions you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.
  • If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of a respiratory illness or flu (coughing, fever, sneezing, trouble breathing, etc.), please call our office at (559) 432-1212 to reschedule your appointment.

We are working to provide patient care in a safe environment for both our staff and our patients. Thank you for understanding. We will get through these tough times together.

With best regards, 

Douglas R. Swinehart, M.D. and Staff
