Telehealth for Medical Dermatology & Cosmetic Skincare Consults

We know how challenging it can be to schedule an unexpected doctor’s appointment. Time off work, coordinating childcare schedules or just the time it takes to drive to the clinic can cause people to delay a diagnosis. At Southwest Dermatology Specialists, we believe you deserve the best in care, and now, we’ve made it more accessible. With our telehealth visits, you’ll have quick connection to high-quality online skin care – with a dermatologist you trust, who is available when you need it most.

This “telehealth” is easy to use – at home, at work or on the go – and we can diagnose over 3,000 non-emergency, skin, hair and nail conditions. Plus, necessary prescriptions will be sent to your preferred pharmacy once a diagnosis is made.

Features of Our Telehealth Visits:

  • Dermatologic consults with one of our board-certified dermatologists online 
  • Set-up a telehealth visit for yourself, your child, or another dependent
  • Receive a personalized treatment plan
  • Prescriptions sent to your preferred pharmacy for pick-up
  • If needed, an in-office visit will be scheduled during your online appointment
  • Most insurances now cover these visits
