COVID-19 Update - March 16, 2020

An important update from the following offices:

Heights Dermatology and Laser P.C. and Marc R. Avram MD P.C.

We are dedicated to providing high quality care for our patients. Being native New Yorkers, the safety of the community is our top priority. The society altering impact of the virus has impacted us all. We wish everyone and their loved ones good health and safety during the pandemic. We want to update you on how we will adapt to continue to provide medical care to you. We will adapt on events in the coming days and weeks but want to keep you up to date with our plan.

Office Schedule:

  • We will be open and have office hours to see and treat you (by following the New York State guidelines).
  • Our goal will be to have you taken into a patient room as soon as possible and not have any groups in the office. As we have always done between each patient, the room will be disinfected. We will ask any staff member who feels sick to stay home and will ask any patient who feels ill to postpone their appointment at this time.
  • Communication between you, our patients, and staff is crucial at this time. If you have any concerns regarding your visit, please ask us, we are here to help.


  • Our office phones will be answered remotely during regular business hours.
  • Teledermatology will allow you to talk with your physician to evaluate and treat your condition from your home, through video conferencing. If you would like to have a remote office visit, please let us know on the phone and we will schedule an appointment with our physicians.
  • We will be able to prescribe medications electronically to pharmacies that in many cases will deliver your medications to your home.

Our staff will be available to take prescription refills requests. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to contact the office with any of your dermatologic needs or if you have any questions or concerns.
