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, and skin lesion. 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 has real-time video conferencing or you can request an E-Visit. Telehealth makes healthcare services more accessible, convenient, and 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.
