Telehealth Q&A


Telehealth applies technology to health care to enhance your communication and overall experience. Instead of visiting either Sapphire Dermatology practice every time you need to talk to a dermatologist, you can use remote telehealth visits to supplement your care.

During a telehealth visit, you log into a secure platform to attend your appointment using a phone call or video call. You can also communicate privately with messaging. This empowers you to follow up with the team after certain treatments or consult with them for others that catch your interest.

Because you use your personal computer, phone, or tablet for telehealth, you can attend your appointments from anywhere you can find an internet connection. This means you can visit with your dermatologist without leaving your home, office, or hotel room.

You probably won’t use telehealth for all of your dermatology visits because many of them involve testing or treatments that must happen in the office. However, there are distinct advantages of using telehealth on occasion when the option is available.

Some of the top benefits of telehealth are:

  • No time spent in a waiting room
  • Fewer scheduling conflicts
  • No time or costs for transportation
  • Increased comfort during appointments
  • No risk of catching or transmitting an infection

Some people find that telehealth appointments result in a more accurate assessment as you’re in your home environment during a virtual visit and not some unfamiliar office.

Sapphire Dermatology uses telehealth for many purposes. The team offers many dermatological services using virtual visits and other forms of telehealth, such as remote monitoring and online communications.

Your dermatological telehealth visits might involve:

  • Viewing suspicious spots or inflammation
  • Follow-ups after treatment
  • Management of a chronic skin condition
  • Prescriptions and medication changes

The team tells you if they need to see you in person following a telehealth visit or if virtual care will suffice.

Telehealth can enhance your dermatology experience and make it easier for you to maintain communication with your dermatologist, even from afar. Call Sapphire Dermatology or schedule an appointment online for your next telehealth visit today.
