to review the steps for TELEHEALTH

Telehealth is here!

We have installed TELEHEALTH CAPABILITY to manage all non-urgent skin care appointments to provide our patients with the safety and luxury of being evaluated from home during this unprecedented time.  Please call our office if you would like to make a Telehealth appointment.

For skin needs such as follow-up rashes, acne (including Accutane), spot checks, refill requests, biologic medication follow-ups, etc… we are now offering real-time videoconferencing tele-dermatology visits.  You will be seen by your dermatologist in the safety and comfort of your home.  Please call our office to set up your appointment for a Telehealth visit.  Prior to your virtual visit, you will receive an email from our office providing you with all the necessary details, including our new Telehealth consent form and the link to your physician’s portal.  Your visit will be accomplished by video, so a high-speed, stable internet connection is recommended.

Prior to your virtual visit, we must receive an email for consent to Telehealth.  BEFORE your time of visit, click the appropriate doctor link below to enter the virtual waiting room.  We will be with you shortly.
