Virtual Skin Consultations

Have your skin concerns reviewed by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Ken Alanen, who will create a formal evidence-based treatment plan for you, or receive a free product consultation.

Dermatology is a visual specialty. 

Practically all skin conditions can be diagnosed by their appearance alone. In fact, much of the training to become a dermatologist is devoted topattern recognition. This is how a dermatologist can identify subtle sun damage, find a potentially sinister mole hiding among many innocent ones, or recognize early skin cancers.

Following your consult, we will create a formal evidence-based treatment plan for you.

Your personal medical information is encrypted, safe and confidential. When necessary, prescriptions will be recommended as part of your therapeutic regimen; these can be sent directly to the pharmacy of your choice.

What We Offer

There are two basic types of teledermatology: Store and Forward (i.e., send us your images directly) and a Live Online Consultation. Many clinical studies have shown that both types of e-consultation are of very high quality and are associated with very high patient satisfaction. These are convenient, safe and secure. All that you need is access to the internet.
