Water’s Edge Dermatology is excited to be one of the few practices in Florida offering high quality tele-dermatology services to improve patient access to care and to offer accurate diagnoses in patient evaluation over the internet.
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) November 13, 2015
Since September 2015, Water's Edge Dermatology has been offering their new tele-dermatology services.
"Our goal is to make skin care easy and accessible at Water's Edge Dermatology," said Dr. Christopher Spock of Water's Edge Dermatology. "By offering online treatment, our patients now have even more options when it comes to their skin conditions."
Offering this service is a great means of patient outreach, as individuals searching for the dermatology office online may come across this convenient service and want to become a patient.
It is also a way for Water's Edge Dermatology to expand their reach to all of Florida. The company has many physical offices but through these services, Water's Edge Dermatology will be able to treat patients remotely.
Additionally, the service is also a great way to stay in touch with current patients.
Water's Edge Dermatology is now offering tele-dermatology care through a safe and secure online platform. Their online dermatology care platform is secure and 100% HIPAA and HITECH compliant. The online process is available at the patients' convenience.
Online visits make access to a board-certified dermatologist easier, faster, and more convenient than ever for new and existing patients.
Over 3,000 skin, hair, and nail issues can be diagnosed online, including acne, suspicious moles, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and many more.
The cost of an online visit is $59, which includes the diagnosis, personalized treatment plan and routing appropriate prescriptions to patients' preferred pharmacies.
Patients will then receive a diagnosis within three business days or sooner, and are able to use the secure platform for any follow-up questions for up to 30 days concerning the diagnosis and treatment of a single condition.
If an in-office procedure is required, patients are encouraged to contact staff members to schedule an appointment. At the time of the diagnosis, the patient will receive educational information on what to expect going forward.
Since September, Water's Edge Dermatology has received very positive feedback regarding the service. Patients have expressed that they enjoy the convenience of the online care, especially those with busy lives who are often not able to make the time to visit a dermatologist for treatment and services.
Dr. Christopher Spock adds, “Water’s Edge Dermatology is excited to be one of the few practices in Florida offering high quality tele-dermatology services to improve patient access to care and to offer accurate diagnoses in patient evaluation over the internet."
