A letter from Kelly Ballou - PA-C
HELLO and GOOD MORNING to all my friends and neighbors in Summit County and beyond!
If your world is anything like mine, there have been extremely trying times lately, to say the least.
I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for helping the neighbors in your community, friends and your families stay safe and healthy as possible during this critical time. I have been fortunate to witness some very neighborly and compassionate actions and empathy in all of this.
We want to be that compassionate neighbor to you.
Our organization has decided to remain open during this difficult time for two reasons.
1. As a medical provider, the State of Colorado has deemed us an essential business, and
2. We are committed to providing important medical services, advice and care to anyone in need
I'd like to share with you what we are doing to help you stay as safe as possible.
First, we are now and have always been very diligent with regards to the cleanliness of our offices. My staff disinfects the entire office and exam rooms several times a day (even when pandemics are not occurring).
Second, although we cannot diagnose your situation over the phone, we are available via multiple Telehealth options to manage your needs in a way that works for you.
Third, as a practicing Physician Assistant since the early 2000’s, I was in Emergency Medicine in Chicago and various other acute care facilities during the SARS outbreak and have been on the Frontlines of multiple pandemics since that time. I have been extensively trained on what to do and what not to do with viruses such as Covid 19, and again, will do all we can to help you stay safe and healthy during this crisis.
The services that we are currently providing include :
A. Skin Exams and Spot Checks
C. Any Medical dermatology treatment (rashes, acne, etc)
NOTE: We are not providing any cosmetic treatments at this time due to non-emergent state recommendations but can review treatment plans to be done in the future.
I know that through safe practices and common sense, WE ARE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER!
If you just need a professional perspective or someone to talk to besides your equally-quarantined family members, I'm here for you in that regard too.
