Re: COVID-19

Dear Patients, 

I hope that you are safe and taking appropriate precautions. During this time, our Yale Dermatology Branford office is unfortunately closed to in-person visits. However, Yale Medicine has made it possible for me to continue to offer dermatology care through teledermatology – video visitation. My staff and I are happy to schedule patients for face-to-face video visits during the pandemic. These visits are being supported by insurance companies. If you would like to make a Video appointment with Dr. Odell, please call Yale Dermatology Branford at 203-482-3419 and ask for a video appointment and we will schedule you accordingly. We strongly encourage all patients to register for Yale MyChart (, but our staff will be able to assist you in easily setting up and preparing for the video visit. There are several options here, so do not let fear of technology prevent you from receiving teledermatology care.

Please take care, wash your hands, practice social distancing, and importantly, I am here during this time to provide your skin care needs, including writing appropriate prescriptions.

Warm regards,

Dr. Ian D. Odell, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor of Dermatology
