See us without being here
Teledermatology is happening now at OlyDerm! Hastened by COVID-19, telemedicine is definitely here to stay for so many good reasons, including convenience, privacy and easy access to the medical dermatology excellence you know and trust.
Here are just a few examples of why patients may want to have appointments with their regular Olympic Dermatology providers without having to physically come into our office: acne, rashes, lesions/spot checks, seborrhea, toenail fungus, prescription refills, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, bacterial infections, hair loss, eczema, shingles, and warts, just to name a few. If you’re unsure, we’ll help you when you schedule online or call us 360-459-1700.
And just like our regular visit financial policies, telemedicine is covered by Medicare and most major insurance plans.
What exactly is it, you ask? Similar to Facetime, a virtual office visit that can be done from the comfort of your home. Our trained medical providers will be able to talk to you and visualize your skin condition in real time. A history, exam, diagnosis and therapeutic plan will occur like normal. Of course, in-person exams are available as well, and patients who need a more detailed appointment or biopsy after a teledermatology visit will be seen promptly. Read more about how it works, including the basic technology required.
We’re pleased to innovate and be here for you when and how it’s needed.
