Adair Family Clinic and MedSpa, a full-service healthcare clinic with multi-specialties focusing on skincare and wellness, recently launched a new urgent care service for skin care needs called Triage My Skin.
This new service comes at a time when dermatology clinics are swamped seeing patients with weeks sometimes months before the next available appointment, even for patients referred by primary care providers for issues as serious as skin cancer, and medical clinics are swamped seeing patients with chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
Triage My Skin allows patients to arrive at the clinic at any time during business hours and request a skincare triage, similar to an urgent care process.
The medical assistant or nurse will greet the patient and escort them to the triage area for examination and begin the triage assessment. Based on the concern, the examination will continue with an evaluation by an experienced esthetician for skin analysis. A nurse practitioner, PA, DO or MD will complete the evaluation of the skin concern with treatment plan, recommendations and prescription medication if needed.
Patients can come in for a variety of skincare issues including Acne, Melasma, dermatitis, allergic reaction, skin irritations, Rosacea, hyperpigmentation, psoriasis, skin swelling, medication related skin disruption, diabetic hyperpigmentation, liver spots, wounds, keloids, Lupus, scarring, and skincare routine problems.
Adair Family Clinic and MedSpa founder and medical director Kris Adair, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, who holds a master’s degree in nursing education and a post-master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner, has more than 12 years’ experience as a registered nurse in internal medicine, wound and skin care, operating room, PACU, cardiology, progressive care and telemetry.
