We continue to be open and available for your urgent dermatologic concerns. Our telemedicine platform has been received very well by the patients who have used it. Please call our office today (972.712.5100) to setup a telemedicine appointment. Same day appointments are available for both telemedicine and in person visits.
Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, and United Healthcare are now covering telemedicine visits. Most likely, member cost sharing (co-pays, co-insurance) are waived for both BCBS of Texas and Humana.

We are still open for any urgent dermatologic concerns that you may have. Several strict measures are in place for your safety as outlined above in the full announcement from Dr. Spencer. Again, we are STRONGLY encouraging patients to take advantage of our telemedicine platform. Effective immediately, patients with Cigna insurance can utilize their insurance for telemedicine visits. Please see our telemedicine page for more information.

Per the Texas Medical Board’s request, we will be cancelling all non-urgent, elective procedures. If you are already scheduled, you will be contacted by our office to reschedule your procedure. Some procedures that are deemed urgent with potential short term health consequences will occur as scheduled. Please call us if you have questions regarding this.
Furthermore, we are STRONGLY urging patients to take advantage of telemedicine for any routine visits. ——————-
Telemedicine visits are available at this time. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine visit, please call us at 972.712.5100 to arrange for a time. At this time, we are only able to provide this service for Medicare and cash pay patients. We are awaiting further guidance from other commercial insurances before patients with these plans can be seen via telemedicine.
