Telehealth

Eastern Washington Dermatology is open and ready to take care of your medical needs. While we are limiting visits to our office to urgent visit only, we can see you using our telehealth program. You can connect with your provider through our patient portal system.

If you have healthcare needs in the coming weeks, including routine follow up appointments, please reach out to our office to schedule an appointment. We will first screen to see if the visit can be completed remotely. If possible, we will set up an appointment for you to video chat with your provider. For visits that cannot be completed remotely we will see patients in the office. We have implemented measure to maintain social distancing and to keep everyone safe during this time.

Telehealth is not new to the medical field. Telehealth has been around for about 40 years, but in the last five years it’s been exponentially growing. This is a service I wanted to offer for about 2 years. Insurance companies have been slow to adopt the technology. Now with COVID-19 Telehealth has been accepted widely. I am so grateful to the Insurance industry in joining our fight to provide medical care in this very trying time.
