I sincerely hope that you and your families are staying safe during this unprecedented time. On behalf of all of us at BEAUTY by BUFORD, please know our thoughts are with you and your loved ones—and with all who have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic worldwide.
Since our inception back in 2001, we have appreciated the continued support that you and others have brought to our practice, and it is this support that allowed us to grow into the practice we are today. We could have not done it without you. And to that, we want you to know that we are here for you and listening to your needs.
Per decisions from both our medical societies, as well as the Governor of Colorado, we are temporarily closing our physical doors effective immediately and will not be seeing patients in person for the time being. The only exception to this will be our immediate post-operative patients who have already been scheduled for dressing changes, follow-up care, and who we see as an exception to the rule against elective procedures. For all other clients, new and established, we remain willing to help in any way possible and will do so by means of digital communication and virtual appointments. Details of how these virtual appointments will be conducted will be released in the next few days. Until then, please feel free to reach out via email or social media.
Jennifer and I will be touching base with those of you who have scheduled appointments in the next few weeks and who will be directly affected by this change. Again, this is unfortunately out of our control but a step in the right direction to controlling the spread of this virus. I want to emphasize that while we are temporarily closing our physical doors, we fully intend to be available as much as possible until we can resume business as usual in the office. During this time, we will continue our social media education outreach and look forward to your engagement.
On a final note, during this crisis, I encourage all of you to support local businesses as they struggle to make payroll and face what will undoubtedly be a very steep uphill battle. Many of these businesses will emerge stronger, but many will not. No matter how small the gesture, we thank you for doing your part to help us all.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding. We look forward to working together toward the resolution of this crisis and a new world ahead.
