As many of you are aware, Governor Walz has issued guidance permitting broader access to routine health care. While we have been able to manage certain concerns via video visits, we know many have postponed follow-up care including preventative skin checks.
We have now opened our schedules to “in-office” routine medical visits that are difficult to transition to a virtual experience, such as skin checks and evaluation of concerning rashes or spots.
Our schedules, while open, will be limited in order to maintain safe distancing for our patients and maximize social distancing in our waiting room. When possible, we will encourage telemedicine for conditions that are amenable. Our Video Visits require no sign-in passwords or downloading of apps, which patients have found to simple and convenient.
We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we adjust to re-opening our practice. For several weeks, we have worked diligently to make sure we are providing an environment that is exceedingly safe for our patients and staff.
We will be asking patients who come into the office to help us in our efforts by:
At this time, we are not scheduling cosmetic appointments, but we soon expect to have more information and guidance form our national and state societies. Please sign up on our website or click the link below to be notified of when we are scheduling cosmetic visits.
We miss seeing you, but that does not diminish our passion and diligence to take exceptional care of you whether it is in the office or virtually. Please call us with any questions or concerns.
In good health
We are in the office for reduced hours, but only seeing patients in person for emergencies and time-sensitive conditions. We are taking extra measures of protection for our staff and our patients and as we remain available to the medical community.
While we miss seeing our patients in person, we are pleased to report that our virtual video visits have been working well. Virtual visits are available for both established and new patients. Although we are still unable to do skin cancer screenings virtually, video visits can be helpful for acne, psoariasis, eczema, melasma, rashes and other chronic skin conditions. We are also able to evaluate lesions concerning for skin cancer, and determine whether or not an-in person visit is warranted.
Please call our office at 612-746-4144 to schedule a virtual appointment.
We have been asked about skin treatments that can be done at home while social distancing. We recommend trying SkinBetter AlphaRet peel pads which can be used monthly, weekly, or even up to three times a week to help brighten your skin. We have been using them ourselves, and depending on the sensitivity of your skin, the “downtime” ranges from mild pinkness and fine peeling to mild tingling after application.
We are happily sending two free AlphaRet peel pads along with any product order. Also know, we now offer free shipping for product orders over $100.
As always, our physicians are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about at-home skin care treatments. Please call our office for details.
We support our healthcare colleagues and we look forward to seeing you all again!
In an effort to support public health efforts, we will be limiting our in-office visits to patients with urgent skin issues. This includes:
For non-urgent dermatological concerns, we are now offering Virtual Video Visits with our physicians.
If you would like to schedule a Virtual Visit, please either contact our office by phone at 612-746-4144 or you may submit a request via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We wish you and your family good health and calm hearts. Below are some answers to common questions we have had this week:
What type of appointments can be scheduled with a with a Virtual Visit? Acne, medication refills, treatment of chronic skin conditions, and some rashes can be well treated using this modality. Unfortunately, Virtual Visits do not work well for routine skin checks.
How does a Virtual Video Visit work? We have tried to use the simplest platform available. At the time of scheduling, you will be sent an email with instructions and a link to the visit. When it is time for your visit, simply click the link. This will securely connect you to a virtual “waiting room” and one of our staff will establish the visit. All you need is a cell phone, iPad, tablet or computer with video capability. There are no apps or websites necessary to download.
Are Virtual Visits Covered by Insurance? If you have Medicare and are an established patient, your visit will be covered. Private insurers have been less forthcoming with their coverage and criteria and we cannot guarantee that the visit will be covered. In this situation, you would be responsible for the visit which we estimate to be between $75-$135.
When should I be concerned about a changing lesion? In general, most skin cancers take several weeks to months to increase in size. Concerning features are persistent itching, bleeding with routine activities, or a new or changing pigmented spot.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, all cosmetic visits at our office have been canceled until further notice. We will update our website when these appointments are available to schedule or you can request that we reach out directly to you when the time comes.
We are continuing to screen patients for COVID-19 symptoms and exposures. If you have an upcoming appointment, call our office to reschedule your visit if you have any of the following symptoms:
In addition, please take precautions if you are over the age of 60 or have other serious chronic medical conditions such as chronic respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, severe hypertension, liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, internal malignancies, immune suppression or use tobacco. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment to a safer time.
Starting on March 23, our office hours until May 15th will be the following:
Monday: 9:00am – 3:00pm
Tuesday: 9:00am – 3:00pm
Wednesday: 8:30 – 3:30pm
Thursday: 8:30 – 3:30pm
If you have an upcoming appointment, we may be calling you to reschedule.
We thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times and wish you continued health.

Skin cancer affects one out of every five Americans. If skin cancer is detected and treated early, it is the easiest cancer to cure! Once again, our board-certified dermatologists at Market Street Dermatology, will be conducting free skin-cancer screenings at our office on Monday, May 6th (Melanoma Monday). Our dermatologists can evaluate all of your moles, or can evaluate single spots of concern to you.
These screenings are ideal for patients who have spots or concerning moles that have not been evaluated professionally and for patients with no insurance or high-deductible health insurance plans that may be reluctant to seek medical attention.
Please be aware that this is a screening only. Spots may be identified that need further attention, but no treatment can be preformed at the time of your visit. We will provide you with a list of board-certified dermatologists in the area for a follow up if needed.
This visit is only meant for skin cancer detection. We cannot evaluate acne, hair loss or any other skin rashes at your appointment.

Be kind to your skin: It’s Melanoma Monday! To help raise awareness, Market Street is offering free skin checks today. Walk-ins are welcome.
“Melanoma Monday,” is a day devoted to skin cancer awareness. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, and melanoma is the deadliest. It can affect anyone. Though most often diagnosed in men over the age of 50, it’s the leading cause of cancer death in young women aged 25–30.
The most common locations for melanoma include the back, shoulders, and the lower extremities—some places can be hard to see on your own.
The good news is that melanoma can be highly curable if caught in early. Skin exams performed by a board-certified dermatologist are the easiest way to catch skin cancer early.
Please remember these important tips to reduce your risks for skin cancer:

It can affect anyone, including young children. Though most often diagnosed in men over the age of 50, it’s the leading cause of cancer death in young women aged 25–30.
It’s common to find melanoma on the back, shoulders, and the back of legs- all places that can be hard to see yourself. The good news is that melanoma can be highly curable if caught in early stages, so if you’re concerned, be sure to make an appointment sooner rather than later.
