What is Teledermatology?

Teledermatology, a form of telemedicine, is the practice of dermatology via videoconferencing. In this type of an appointment a patient is linked by videoconference, via phone or computer, to their dermatology provider in our office, and the office visit is completed remotely by two-way video communication.
Such appointments work best for some but not all dermatology appointments. Oftentimes, a minor procedure is needed such as a skin biopsy or freezing a wart or precancerous lesion with liquid nitrogen cryotherapy. Additionally, there are times when a person to person visit is required. This may be determined during your video visit, and a subsequent in-office appointment can be made immediately by your provider.

When can teledermatology be used?

Video visits permit a direct communication between the patient and dermatology provider. A limited physical examination can be performed in most cases after the patient describes the concern to the provider, followed by a treatment plan that is most acceptable to both parties. The dermatology provider can send in new prescriptions to the pharmacy of choice, and can also refill medications when necessary.

These Video Visits between patients and dermatology provider is available for existing patients and for those who have never been to our clinic.
