Heidelberg Dermatology
Even though we continue to offer telemedicine for appropriate patients Heidelberg Dermatology regrets the need to interrupt services due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. However, all our patients will be rescheduled as soon as it is safe to resume our operations. In the meantime, everyone here wishes all our patients well as we confront this challenge.
