Allegheny Health Network Offers "Virtual" Dermatology Consultations Through Exclusive Partnership with DermatologistOnCall

Allegheny Health Network announces a partnership with DermatologistOnCall®, an online dermatology telemedicine service that provides patients with quick and convenient access to board-certified skin care specialists.

Three Allegheny Health Network dermatologists will join the DermatologistOnCall® network of dermatology providers to afford patients with more efficient access to dermatology services, delivering a diagnosis and treatment plan to patients within three days.

Through the Allegheny Health Network website, patients will have around-the-clock access to the service which uses a safe and secure online platform.

Patients provide a brief medical history, specific information about their current concerns and upload photos of their condition. After reviewing the patient's information, a board-certified dermatologist provides a diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan, including counseling on the condition and prescriptions for medication, within three business days. When medically necessary, the dermatologist will refer the patient for an office visit.

The site's dermatologists can address more than 3,000 diseases of the skin, hair and nails, including common problems such as acne, shingles, hair loss, poison ivy, and psoriasis.

Participating Allegheny Health Network dermatologists include Judith Small, M.D.; Shery Varghese, M.D., and Therese Wilson, M.D.

Patients may access the service via the Allegheny Health Network website at www.ahn.org/dermoncall.
