Please read carefully. We are very pleased to announce that Sonoma Skin will be re-opening on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 181 Andrieux Street, Suite 103 (the main office). Since we no longer have a Physician’s Assistant and will be scheduling fewer hours, we have decided to accept only Medicare and Meritage Medical Network (formally Marin-Sonoma IPA) Insurance Plans. We are in the process of discontinuing all other insurance. We would be pleased if you choose to continue to receive dermatologic services from our office, but will ask you to pay at the time of your services. You should review your out-of-network benefits under your policy to determine whether they will provide any reimbursement for these services. We will remain available to all of our patients of record for emergency services for 30 days.
We will continue to see self-pay and cosmetic patients.
If you wish to find another dermatologist please check with your health insurance company to see who participates in your plan; depending on your coverage, your choice of physicians may be restricted. In addition, here are some credentialed providers in our area who can manage your care: Dr. Odom in Sonoma, Dr. Sugarman in Santa Rosa, Solano Dermatology Associates in Fairfield & Vallejo, Dr. Homa in Petaluma and Dr. Porkka in Napa. Additionally, the California Society of Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery may be able to provide additional resources.
If you would like a copy of your medical records or would like your records transferred to another physician, please fill out and sign a release of records form (Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Health Information) or you may call the office to leave your name, address and phone number so we can send you the form.
We hope we can continue to be of service to you. We are currently scheduling appointments at 707-938-9880, Option 3.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
