At San Diego Family Dermatology we offer same-day appointments for all Urgent cases.
Please call our office and let them know you have an urgent issue, and you will be scheduled the same day (Monday-Thursday, and occassionally Fridays). You can also walk-in, however you may have a wait if you don’t call ahead.
Examples of Urgent Issues are:
Sudden breakout in a rash
Infection of the skin
Abscess of the skin
Severe worsening of a chronic skin condition
Reaction to a medication
Contact Dermatitis from Poison Ivy or other irritant
Extreme Itch that prevents sleep
**Although we are more than happy to see any patient on a same day basis, not all insurances will reimburse without an authorization. If you are unsure, please call our office or your insurance company. We offer a $114 cash rate for new patients. If necessary, procedures like biopsies may cost more ($100-$200). We offer a sliding scale based on income.
Those insurances that do not need an authorization (will reimburse) include:
Community Health Group
Most PPOs (Call to inquire)
Insurances that do require an authorization (you will need to pay cash without an authorization) include:
Community Care IPA
Imperial Health Holdings
Blue Shield Platinum/Gold/Silver/Bronze Plans
*We are constantly working with these insurances to allow easier and urgent access to our services.
