Novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) has paralyzed the world. It has taken away from communities, destroyed small businesses, increased stress levels, and has even taken away our FREEDOM.
We are so excited to announce we now offer COVID-19 Testing at DCCM.
Tara Delle Chiaie, our Board Certified Nurse Practitioner and owner of a Concierge Medical practice and a Med Spa in Hampton NH, allows her to offer primary care to members of the community. As a family care provider she has the necessary licensing and status to run a medical practice, that is allowed to stay open to serve and protect the community.
The COVID -19 testing that we offering is $175. Testing is on a first come first serve basis. You must book an appointment online or by calling the office: www.surfacemedicalesthtics.com 603-783-1087. We will not guarantee how long this pricing will last. We have ordered two batches so far and both cost different amounts. As supplies become low we will be purchasing more. We are all at the mercy of the demand right now.
At this time we are offering these tests at the bare minimum cost. We are NOT looking to profit from this test; we simply want to provide answers to our members and the seacoast community. Our hope is to provide reassurance to the community. We believe that fear of the unknown creates intense distress which breeds depression, anxiety, an increase in alcohol consumption and so many other down spiraling habits. We want our community to have a “peace” of mind, a sense of normalcy, a sense of protection.
The tests will be analyzing if patients have active exposure or if they have had previous exposure. Our tests are listed on the FDA’s website under EUA.
Please know that we have always taken great caution to cleanliness and safety pre-COVID. This means post COVID changes were minimal as we have always held the highest of standards representing a medical practice. We have always cleaned before and after every patient, we have always utilized hospital grade and appropriate cleaners, disinfectants, and sanitizers, we have always screened our patients, and have always worn the appropriate protective equipment based on the illness or the procedure. So, not much has needed to change in the way in which we have done things here at DCCM. We were already doing it and we will continue to do it as well. You can now expect your temperature to be taken the minute you arrive at our doorstep and each patient is assigned an individual waiting room when it is necessary to be seen in the office post-COVID. We will continue to stay up to date on the best practices recommended by the CDC and the NHDHHS. We will act accordingly with all of the recommendations with your safety at the forefront of our everyday operations.
