Telehealth Q&A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth is the practice of using technology to conduct some of your medical visits. Rather than coming to the office at Leading Edge Dermatology for evaluations or follow-ups, you can make contact with your dermatologist from anywhere using a phone, computer, or tablet.

Your telehealth visits are mostly the same as in-person visits and are available when you need them for your convenience. Leading Edge Dermatology understands that an office visit isn’t always feasible, and telehealth visits allow you to get the care you need without the inconvenience. 

You can use telehealth to evaluate thousands of conditions affecting your skin, hair, or nails. 

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Telehealth visits at Leading Edge Dermatology are available when you need them the most. They’re convenient and easy to access using the technology you already use every day. Their benefits include:

  • Consulting with a board-certified dermatologist on your own time
  • Getting a personal treatment plan in three days or less
  • Transmitting prescriptions to a pharmacy close to you
  • Coverage by Medicare and most major insurances
  • Remote visits you can access from anywhere

Telehealth appointments are often easiest to fit into a busy or hectic schedule. They’re also a great option if you’re out of town and still need to discuss your skin health with a dermatologist, or if you have transportation issues that make it difficult for you to come to the office. 

Which services does telehealth work for?

Telehealth works best for appointments that don’t involve any physical procedures, like biopsies or other in-office procedures. Yet, there are still many events that can happen during a remote visit. Your dermatologist can evaluate your skin using high-definition video and audio on your phone or tablet and monitor conditions like:

  • Acne 
  • Suspicious moles
  • Eczema
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis

From a distance, your dermatologist can prescribe or adjust medications for your skin condition. They can also develop a personalized care plan from afar, which you receive in just days. Your dermatologist might also recommend using telehealth visits for follow-ups after specific treatments or procedures in the office.
