As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.

Anyone can get warts. However, some people are more prone to getting them. Examples: Children and teens, people who bite their nails, and people with a weakened immune system.
