New York, NY (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Under the leadership of board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Dina Strachan, Aglow Dermatology has provided high quality dermatologic care to those able to visit their New York City office. Now all New York State residents can have access to the high quality skin care available at Aglow Dermatology—and from the convenience of their homes—via a secure online dermatology platform, DermatologistOnCall (http://www.dermatologistoncall.com). Aglow Dermatology is the first New York City-based practice to participate in this service.
“Outside of major urban areas patients have limited access to specialists such as dermatologists,” states Dr. Strachan, “but even in cities with more options it is not always convenient for people to come in because of work or family obligations.” The doctor also notes that even when patients have access to specialty care, the doctor may not be as familiar with treating skin, hair or nail problems in specific populations such as patients with ethnic skin.
In-person consultation is ideal, according to Dr. Strachan, however, the intention is to provide affordable options to patients who may not be able to come to New York City to her office. The telemedicine platform, DermatologistOnCall is designed to address one non-emergency problem per consultation. Patients can get care simply by setting up a secure profile, which would include pharmacy information, and uploading photographs. A response, including diagnosis, plan and possible prescription, are to be provided within 3 days. The current cost of a consultation is $59.
