To our valued patients of Geoffrey E. Leber, MD and Leber Skin & Laser Center,

Our practice is open until further notice for consultations and aesthetic services. We will continue to update this page as new information is made available.

With so much uncertainty happening, self-care is so important. If you would like to proceed with a procedure, we would be honored to serve you and hope the services we provide help alleviate stress and provide a sense of normalcy in these otherwise stressful times. We take great pride in the cleanliness of our facility and rest assured we are taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff. Please continue reading below…

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19
We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak via the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and our hospital affiliates. The virus and protocols around it are changing quickly, and we at Geoffrey E. Leber MD, PC and Leber Skin & Laser Center are working to mitigate any impact on our doctor, staff and patients.

We are taking precautions necessary throughout the practice. We have been using medical-grade sanitizing wipes for our workstations, counters, waiting room and exam room furniture/equipment continuously throughout the day and will continue to do so. Our physician, medical assistant, injection nurse and aesthetician are committed to washing their hands thoroughly before and after each patient as well as wearing gloves. Gloves will be available for your use in the waiting room at your request. Our office staff have also been educated as to the importance of following CDC guidelines for mitigating viral risk and promote prevention in the workplace. Again, this is an evolving situation and we will take all possible and necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. As we continue to monitor this new pandemic, we will update you via our website.
With the current outbreak, our schedule is continually changing. We will continue to reach out to currently scheduled patients directly to communicate any schedule changes.

As an alternative option, we will be offering consults virtually. Please contact Ashleigh Busse if you would like to schedule a virtual consultation. Please call 480-945-5522 or email:
We ask all patients with an appointment who have: a fever, symptoms of a respiratory infection/cough/feel sick, had known exposure to someone who has tested positive for Coronavirus or anyone in your household is experiencing flu-like symptoms, have recently traveled to a high-risk region, or have been exposed to a person with the flu or any other communicable disease to please reschedule your appointment.

Minors are not permitted in the office. We also ask that when you come for your visit, you are accompanied by no more than one person.

If you are concerned that you may have be ill, please seek care at your primary care physician’s office or local hospital’s emergency department. In order to be vigilant about the spread of germs during this cold and flu season, make sure that you follow these basic precautions:

Your safety remains our priority. We are adapting the relevant authorities’ precautionary measures to our practice to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our patients and employees. Thank you for your support and understanding and wishing you good health!
