The Online Dermatology Clinic


When should I use Direct Dermatology?

  • Doctor discussing a patient's medical chartAnytime you have a question or want a second opinion about diagnosis and treatment recommendations for any of your patients' skin-related medical complaints
  • When your patient cannot or prefers not to wait the multiple weeks or months to get an in-office visit with a dermatologist in your area
  • When you want to have an open communication with a dermatologist that involves a two-way dialogue and educational opportunities. We recognize that many basic dermatology skills are often not taught during typical medical training and part of our mission is to provide education that will help you take better care of your patients.

If you are interested in using our service or would just like to learn more, please Contact Us and one of our representatives will get back to you shortly.

Conditions We Diagnose and Treat

Direct Dermatology is a convenient alternative for you to get consultation from US board-certified dermatologists for diagnosis and/or treatment of your patients' non-emergency skin conditions. Referring medical providers appreciate the fact that they have access to a dermatologist anytime for their patients. They find our service especially valuable when the wait-times for their patients to see a dermatologist are long or their patients live in a rural area where it can be difficult to access any dermatologist.

We diagnose and treat any skin growths and skin rashes, as well as hair and nail problems. In addition, we manage the treatment of chronic skin conditions, such as acne, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis.
