COVID Care Notice
Thank you for visiting my site, and for your interest in getting care at Madison Tower Plastic Surgery.
Since January 1, 2022, our office has asked that patients be vaccinated against COVID before undergoing any procedure with moderate to high risk of transmission. We recognize this is a polarizing decision, but it was made for the safety of our staff, for the other patients in the office, and especially for the patient undergoing the procedure. It stems from sometimes poignant experiences with patients who turn COVID positive without the vaccine, who can experience a dramatically different course, particularly when combined with procedure recovery.
In Seattle, COVID vaccination is currently a requirement for even eating inside a restaurant. There are now good data clearly showing that vaccination reduces the risk of COVID transmission by 2.5x, of hospitalization by 11x, and death by 17x. King County publishes a dashboard updated continuously with this info (https://kingcounty.gov/depts/health/covid-19/data/vaccination-outcomes.aspx) which is a useful resource for reviewing these benefits.
For those patients who elect to remain unvaccinated, we can respect your decisions and continue to offer you care by putting in place a point-of-care testing protocol to ensure the safest conditions possible. There is a cost associated with that, on par with or more reasonable than most other testing services used for travel. We apologize that in some cases, this makes our options slightly less affordable as a result of the added security during this pandemic. We feel it is a small price to pay for keeping everyone as safe as possible; it allows us to continue providing high quality care with the best interests of our patients in mind.
Please be safe out there. All the best,
Hakim Said, MD FACS
