Associates In Plastic Surgery’s Update To Coronavirus

Updated March 18th, 2020

To our patients, While all health, and safety standards and procedures are followed on a daily basis at the Associates In Plastic Surgery Inc., we want to make you aware of the extra precautions we’re taking during this time of heightened concern about Coronavirus (COVID-19). We plan to proceed with normal business hours and therefore, maintaining your health is extremely important….for us and for you!


  • Check-in at the front desk. At this time if you have any flu symptoms please let us know, we will provide a mask.
  • We may take your temperature to verify your core body temp is not 100.4 degrees or higher. If you have a fever or are sick, we will assist you with rescheduling your appointment.
  • If you are an immediate post-op patient and you have a fever and are sick we will help facilitate and arrange your appointment.
  • If you have been exposed to the Coronavirus, H1N1 or H1H2 Flu please stay home and self-quarantine per the CDC guidelines.
  • Please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled outside the country within the last 2 weeks.
  • Please come alone to your appointment unless you are less than 18 years of age then you must bring a parent or guardian. If you will be medicated for a procedure you may have one driver/escort.


  • Closely monitoring daily updates and recommendations from the CDC.
  • Our team has increased deep cleans and is disinfecting all surfaces in the treatment rooms and common areas (tables, door handles, counters, railings).

If you are feeling sick or have been exposed to the Coronavirus/Flu, we ask that you reschedule.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???

    Felicia is the absolute BEST. If you enjoy the feeling when people say, “You look too young to have a 19 year old.” Then book an appointment with Felicia immediately. She’s the sweetest human being on the planet and excellent at her job.

  • Love the staff!! They are so friendly and take time with you to really listen to your needs. Highly recommend!!
