Meet With Your Doctor from the Comfort of Your Home

The deadly COVID-19 pandemic upended the everyday lives of everyone in the world — including everyone in the medical community as well. In early 2020, providers across the country were forced to postpone elective procedures. However, many were also encouraging people to avoid in-office appointments to reduce their risk of exposure to this highly contagious Coronavirus. Today, we have a little more flexibility, but precautions are still important to the safety of yourself and others. 

So, what do you do if you still need care? Fortunately, teledermatology can help. Our professional team is led by board-certified dermatologist Will Richardson, M.D, who specializes in cosmetic dermatology, laser surgery, and body sculpting. Located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Natura Dermatology is committed to helping you with any dermatological issues that you may be facing, and we are committed to helping you in a way that is safe for everyone. 

How Teledermatology Works

Teledermatology — or telemedicine, for a non-dermatology practice — is a digital solution that allows you to see your doctor through your phone or computer instead of going into the office. We adhere strictly to HIPAA guidelines to protect your information as you see your doctor with a two-way, high-definition video. 

Our teledermatology is set up so that you can easily:

Our contemporary and tech-forward approach evolved to help expand medical care to anyone living in remote areas. Today, over three-quarters of hospitals use teledermatology technology, and most medical practices could save as much as $6 billion a year by making telemedicine technology available to their providers and their patients. But the advantages of teledermatology go far beyond financial savings for us at Natura Dermatology.

The Benefits of Teledermatology

Even when you’re lucky enough to live close to your doctor or in a rural area, you probably know firsthand that even a routine visit involves wait times that can be twenty, or even thirty minutes — and that doesn’t include the time you spend getting there. Teledermatology technology eliminates that.

By connecting to your doctor virtually setting, you can:

You’re also protecting yourself and your community by reducing your risk of exposure to contagious illnesses, like the common cold, flu, and perhaps most importantly, COVID-19.

Teledermatology is available to patients of all ages, including children, older adults, and those living with chronic conditions. This is what makes teledermatology an ideal healthcare solution for everyone, especially during these trying times, where we have to be particularly cautious when we leave our homes.  

What to Expect During a Teledermatology Appointment

Telemedicine or teledermatology technology has never been easier to use:

You can also upload photos, if needed, to help us diagnose your symptoms more efficiently.
