SunWise Family Dermatology & Surgery

Dermatology Practice & Surgeon located in Middletown, DE

In the past few days, I’ve had a few patients ask me “why are you still open?”


When some people think of Dermatology, they think of the cosmetic aspect. They think of it as an area of medicine that may be unnecessary. Believe me, we’ve struggled with the issue of staying open and closing. The people most at risk right now are the elderly, the immunocompromised, and us...healthcare workers.

But then I think of the patient we just diagnosed with advanced melanoma, whose treatment needs to start now. I think of the patient who we just diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder or patients with conditions who need to be started on medications immediately who would otherwise end up in an emergency room visit. These patients walk through our doors...every. Single. Day.

This is why we are open.

We are working on a teleconference visit system for our patients, and while certain visits can be handled that way, not all can. We will try to triage and prioritize patients to our best ability. We ask if you have traveled out of the country in the last 30 days or if you have any symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc. to stay home and reschedule. If you are concerned for your health, please stay home.

If you have an appointment, please do not bring friends or family members to the visit unless absolutely necessary, especially children under the age of 18. As it stands we have lightened our schedules so patients will have less contact with each other. We are disinfecting every surface in between patients in both the rooms and the reception area, according to current medical guidelines.

We are working in uncharted territory, and our patients are our top priority.

Until further ordered we will be staying opened. Please visit SunWiseDerm.com, or Facebook for additional information concerning disruption of services.

If you have other concerns or would like to reach us, please call 302-364-2000.
