Iagnosis, the nation’s leader in online dermatology solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Visage Dermatology and Laser Center to create a mobile app, making it even easier for patients to conduct online visits for dermatological care. Visage Dermatology and Laser Center will now be able to offer online visits with a board-certified dermatologist to patients across the state of Florida using a smartphone, tablet or computer through its website link www.visagedermatology.com or the new Visage Dermatology and Laser Center mobile app – for Apple and Android devices, available for free in the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store.
With a shortage of board-certified dermatologists in the U.S., some patients wait up to three months or longer for in-office appointments. Additionally, of the more than 100 million dermatological conditions and diseases diagnosed each year in the U.S., only 35 million are treated by board-certified dermatologists, while 65 million are treated by primary care physicians, walk-in medical providers or via over-the-counter medications.
“Our new mobile app provides patients with a very convenient way to access board-certified dermatological care online,” said Alexandria Kongsiri, MD of Visage Dermatology and Laser Center. “Patients who can’t easily make it into the office or who desire a quick diagnosis for a variety of conditions will appreciate the flexibility of an online visit.”
To use the service, patients simply visit www.visagedermatology.com or launch the mobile app to provide a brief medical history, information about their condition and upload photos. After review, the dermatologist provides a diagnosis, comprehensive treatment plan including necessary prescriptions within 24 hours on average. When medically necessary, the patient will be referred for an in-office visit.
Among the more than 3,000 conditions for which patients access the system are acne, dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, shingles, melanoma and other skin cancers.
“We are excited to be working with a progressive group like Visage Dermatology and Laser Center. Their new mobile app makes it more convenient than ever for patients to access a board-certified dermatologist, especially in today’s digital age,” said Mark P. Seraly, MD, founder and chief medical officer of Iagnosis. “Kids do not have to miss school and parents will not miss work to initiate an online visit for a variety of conditions like acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or suspicious moles.”
