We want to make seeking care from board-certified dermatologists easy and stress-free, which is why patients can submit cases any time of day, any day of the week.Dr. Mark Seraly, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of DermatologistOnCall

DermatologistOnCall, a growing network of dermatologists that provides patients with convenient, board-certified access to dermatological care using a computer, tablet or smartphone, delivers a 98% recommendation rating from its patients for its online service. This is according to a new customer satisfaction study that asked patients to rate their experience using the service shortly after completing a visit.
The healthcare industry as a whole has been struggling to meet customer expectations and national benchmark results show only about 82% of patients are willing to recommend their physician (SullivanLuallinGroup‐MGMA Practice Benchmarks). The teledermatology service provider DermatologistOnCall has exceeded these results with a 98% rating by providing high quality care that focuses on quick, easy to use and convenient online access to skin care. In some markets, wait time to see a dermatologist is two-and-a-half months. With DermatologistOnCall, patients receive an online diagnosis and treatment plan and if necessary a prescription, all typically in fewer than 11 hours.
“DermatologistOnCall allows me to offer quality and timely access to care for a patient who would normally have to wait up to four months,” said Dr. Lisa Pawelski, a board-certified dermatologist who practices in Pennsylvania. “It provides an option for patients who may be experiencing distress to seek an immediate and quality solution.”
The full teledermatology customer satisfaction report showed key factors leading patients to use DermatologistOnCall were convenience and ease of use, but what is especially noteworthy is the exceptionally high ratings for the quality of care patients received. When asked, “How helpful was DermatologistOnCall at diagnosing and explaining your medical condition(s),” an astounding 92% answered either “Extremely Helpful” or “Quite Helpful.”
“Unlike an in-office visit, DermatologistOnCall patients will receive a copy of their diagnosis and treatment plan, which can be faxed to their primary care physician or regular dermatologist if they aren’t a part of the DermatologistOnCall network,” said Dr. Mark Seraly, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of DermatologistOnCall. “We want to make seeking care from board-certified dermatologists easy and stress-free, which is why patients can submit cases any time of day, any day of the week and virtually chat with their dermatologist about the condition.”
