What is telehealth?
Telehealth remotely connects you to the staff at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center. The dermatologists can evaluate some skin conditions, answer questions, and offer treatment recommendations while you are in the comfort of your own home or office.
What dermatological issues can receive treatment with telehealth?
Many acute and chronic dermatological conditions can be evaluated and managed with telehealth. These include:
- Insect bites or stings
- Skin infections or rashes
Your provider can also manage your prescriptions via a telemedicine visit. If you have any doubt about your particular skin condition and whether it qualifies for telehealth, call the office and the staff can direct you to the best type of appointment.
How does a dermatology telehealth appointment work?
For your dermatology telehealth appointment, you submit a list of your symptoms and photos of any affected areas through your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The doctors can assess your condition and provide a treatment plan or direct you to schedule an in-office visit.
What are the benefits of telehealth?
One of the greatest benefits of telehealth is convenience. You don’t have to interrupt your daily schedule to travel to the dermatology office. Telehealth visits are affordable and get you in quickly, and there’s no need to wait at the office for your appointment.
Telehealth also removes the risk of spreading infections while you get your health needs met. You won’t come into contact with other patients or staff members.
People who can’t easily leave their home due to household obligations, such as an elderly relative or young children, can also benefit from telehealth visits.
Telehealth is simple to use. The team at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center walks you through the process of accessing the online platform so you can successfully get remote care.
Are telehealth visits safe?
The telehealth video calls through Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center follow all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines. This federal law sets a national standard to protect medical records and other personal health information.
All data during the visit is encrypted. Sessions are anonymous, and no information shared at the appointment is stored.
