Stay Home, Stay Safe, and Keep Your Shirt On
(No Really, Please Keep Your Shirt ON!)

In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we encourage all of our patients and prospective patients, regardless of symptoms, to stay home and practice safe social distancing to minimize their risk of transmitting the virus. For this reason, we are pleased to offer virtual consultations to allow you to meet and get to know Dr. Deutsch, as well as answer any preliminary questions you may have, all from the privacy of your own home.
A personal conversation with Dr. Deutsch
Think of the information discussed during your virtual consultations like a conversation you might have with a neighbor or close friend who is a doctor—you may ask for their opinions or suggestions, but wouldn’t expect them to diagnose or prescribe medication without being seen in their doctor first.
What to expect from your call:
- You will receive detailed information about any procedures that you are considering.
- Dr. Deutsch will provide you with surgical options for the outcome that you desire based on your conversation.
- A note will be created in your medical chart and you will receive a basic quote for the procedure.
These virtual consultations are educational in nature only and are not a substitute for a formal, in-person consultation. It is still necessary to meet in person for a final evaluation and firm quote and before we will schedule any procedure. Please be aware that calls will be responded to within an hour during regular business hours. Our staff is currently working at home to do our part to minimize person-to-person contact during COVID-19.
Disclaimer – HIPAA Compliance and Liability
We take precautions to ensure your privacy and follow HIPAA regulations for all client communications. However, please understand that whenever information is shared online there is a slight risk of compromised security. For this reason, we do NOT allow any partial or full nudity during consultations. Any patient who begins exposing themselves will have the call immediately terminated.
