Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery hope you and your family are healthy and safe. These past several months have been trying times for all of us. We all want to take this opportunity to update you as to what we have been doing these past few months. Up until Monday June 8th we had been open seeing patients with emergent and urgent conditions. Governor Cuomo lifted the executive order and we are now permitted to see all patients including those for elective surgeries and procedures. For the safety of our patients, their family, and our staff, we have adopted all the guidelines issued by the CDC and our national, regional and local medical and Plastic Surgery Associations to make sure we are in strict accord with those guidelines.

We are currently up to date with all our PPE and are ready to evaluate and treat all our patients. Please rest assured that we are practicing strict social distancing guidelines and barrier protection has been added to our office. All patients, doctors and staff will be undergoing daily temperature checks in accord with the latest guidelines. Patients will be given questionnaires about their recent health as well. 

Our commitment to our patients has never waned and is our utmost priority. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns and we look forward to seeing you soon!
