Teledermatology Now Available
Due to safety concerns during the COVID-19 public health emergency, we are pleased and relieved to announce that we are now able to offer telehealth virtual office visits to patients whose concerns can be met remotely. Examples would include routine follow-up visits, acne, psoriasis care, poison ivy exposure,and wound checks. We will be scheduling teledermatology appointments daily between the hours of 1 pm and 5 pm. Your scheduler will further discuss with you the appropriatesness of a remote visit. Teledermatology appoinments are now covered by all major health insurers and Medicare, and the commercial carriers we surveyed are waiving co-pays and co-insurance during this crisis to encourage all those who can stay home,to do so. (Deductibles will still apply.)
Your virtual office visit will be conducted via Skype, Facetime for apple phone users, or any mobile phone device for audio only. Photographs may be submitted in advance of your appointment through our email: [email protected] Please have your insurance information available when you phone to schedule.
At present, teledermatology services are available to currently established patients only. We are hoping to be able to expand these services to new patients in the future.
