Telehealth

Orchid Dermatology is now offering to our Patient's Telehealth services. Telehealth can be used for issues that include a spot of concern, wound check, rash, acne flares, eczema flare, rosacea, skin lesion, medication refills, and cosmetic consults. It is a great service that allows patients to receive a diagnosis from one of our providers while in the comfort of their home. Telehealth is a real-time video conferencing service. Telehealth makes healthcare services more accessible, convenient, and can reduce costs. This service is offered to established patients and is not a replacement for regular in-office visits. A yearly full-body exam at the office is still recommended.

 

Orchid Dermatology is currently seeing new and established patients via Telehealth. Call (941) 761-2900  to schedule Telehealth visit.
