Stay Home with Televisits from DCL

A televisit is a type of medical visit where the patient and doctor interact in real-time via videoconferencing technology. You, the patient, can have your skin complaint evaluated in the comfort of your own home, through one-one-one communication with your dermatologist. If you’ve ever used your smartphone or computer to Facetime, Skype, Zoom, etc, you’re ready for a televisit! It is important to know that we use a HIPAA-compliant, secure electronic health record (EHR) and electronic messaging platform to carry out our televisits and patient communication.

Skin conditions that can be evaluated by a televisit include:

  • rashes
  • acne
  • psoriasis
  • rosacea
  • hyperhidrosis
  • melasma
  • skin infections
  • certain skin lesions

Note: not all skin conditions can be fully evaluated with a televisit. Your dermatologist may therefore recommend a follow-up visit and/or biopsy in the office at a future date. This does not mean that your televisit is wasted, as important and useful information can be gained with every encounter.

Scheduling a televisit is as easy as scheduling an in-office visit.  Find out how here.
