The last few weeks have borne witness to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus known as COVID-19. This is a novel virus that we do not fully understand, but whose devastating effects have been felt around the world, with no regards for borders or economies. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been forever changed by this pandemic. In the spirit of containing this pandemic, I, Dr. Bhandari, and our incredible family of dedicated professionals who make up Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics have made the difficult but necessary decision to keep our offices closed through April 3, pending any further developments.

Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our patients and our team. We are grateful to all of you for your loyalty and understanding and look forward to the time when we can resume doing what we do best - caring for you. Until then, please adhere to the recommended guidelines regarding handwashing and social distancing. Please remember that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation - the digital age allows us to be there for each other.

Warmest wishes to all of you for continued good health and strength,

Vivian Bucay, MD
