What an Online Dermatologist Can Help With:
Limits of A Virtual Dermatologist
There are limits to what an online dermatologist can do to help you. While a virtual dermatology has its advantages, it’s not possible to do procedures virtually. For example, if that spot is suspicious, you need to schedule an in-office appointment for a biopsy.
While many patients are using this time to for cosmetic consultations for CoolSculpting, EmSculpt, EmSella, Ultherapy, and Fraxel Skin Resurfacing, these procedures must be completed in the office once it’s safe enough to be within 6 feet of one another.
Other platforms other virtual dermatology or tele-dermatology visits but it’s hard to know the qualifications of those physicians or even if they are board-certified. Some platforms do not allow for real-time video sessions with your dermatologist, it’s just pictures and texts being sent back and forth. As a board-certified online dermatologist, Dr. Kormeili believes that patient care begins with the relationship between herself and her patients.
Dr. Kormeili began offering tele-dermatology appointments to help her patients continue treatment goals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
