How is Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, PLLC and Revive Medical Spa, LLC responding?
We are excited to announce the use of both FaceTime and doxy.me (HIPAA compliant) to provide remote telehealth teledermatology care for our patients. Both providers and patients can connect using audio/video capabilities from a desktop computer with a camera, laptop, tablet/iPad, or mobile smartphone. We ask that you send in a photo of any areas you are concerned about prior to your appointment. We also recommend you keep up on your monthly skin self-exams.
