SkyMD is a national telemedicine platform, specializing in dermatology, staffed with doctors that treat patients every day across America. With online dermatologists in all 50 US States, SkyMD's medical team of skin doctors is literally available to treat patients in every zip code, from infants to centenarians!
Our online group of doctors operates no differently than any traditional doctor's office, other than no appointments, and your having more time to interact with your dermatologist. SkyMD accepts most medical insurances, and treats the privacy of your medical data with the utmost importance. Our medical professionals are all board certified doctors, with years of experience in treating a wide range of skin conditions and diseases.
As a group of practicing medical doctors, SkyMD also prescribes medications, the same as if you were evaluated by a doctor in person. Today's medical industry, along with State Boards of Medicine and the majority of private insurance networks, considers telemedicine as equal to being seen in person, and most medical insurance networks consider telemedicine as a covered medical benefit. Dermatology is an obvious and practical fit for the use of telemedicine. Your SkyMD doctor now has the flexibility to evaluate your uploaded photos, or converse with you in a video conference, or even recommend that you still see a doctor in person, depending on what's the right treatment model for each patient.
Access your dermatologist anytime, anywhere. SkyMD brings the dermatologist to your fingertips.
Here's how it works:
1. Download the app (for free) and connect to your dermatologist. Tell us where you live (zip code), and we will recommend a doctor to you, or you can select from any doctor in your home state.
2. Take photos of your skin, hair or nail concern, and complete a medical intake comprised of a few simple questions about your primary concern, symptoms, a medical history, allergies, and anything else you'd like to tell us about your skin issue.
3. Your dermatologist will evaluate your case, diagnose your condition, and recommend a personalized treatment plan, including prescriptions if necessary. You tell us where to send the prescription, too. Your choice of pharmacy!
Common issues that can be diagnosed and treated through the SkyMD online dermatology platform include but are not limited to acne, rosacea, cold sores, dandruff, hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, eyelash thinning, hair loss, nail issues, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, skin aging, and other skin lesions...but the list of skin-related issues that can effect a patient goes on and on.
