We know how challenging it can be to schedule an unexpected doctor’s appointment. Time off work, coordinating childcare schedules or just the time it takes to drive to the clinic can cause people to delay a diagnosis. At Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, we believe you deserve the best in care, and now, we’ve made it more accessible. With our virtual dermatology visits, you’ll have quick connection to high-quality online skin care – with a dermatologist you trust, who is available when you need it most.
This “virtual visit” is easy to use – at home, at work or on the go – and we can diagnose over 3,000 non-emergency, skin, hair and nail conditions. Plus, necessary prescriptions will be sent to your preferred pharmacy once a diagnosis is made.
