West Sound Dermatology & COVID 19
Telehealth Now Available!
With the evolving Coronavirus Pandemic necessitating closure of our offices, we will be offering virtual care through online platforms. We will be billing patients and insurance* carriers as appropriate for these services to help us remain economically viable during our closure.
We realize that many of you have been used to emailing and calling in the past with questions related to new dermatologic concerns and chronic problems, and we have been in the position to render this care free of charge. Unfortunately, we can no longer provide such services and remain solvent. Thank you for your understanding.
There are two ways to access care during this period:
- A Telehealth appointment via video chat which would be billed to insurance as usual. This requires an iPhone or Android device and the ability to download and use applications. To request an appointment, please call and leave a message for our staff and they will reach out to you to schedule.
- An online website, DermatologistOnCall, which allows uploading of photographs and history, and is charged at a flat fee of $59**. You can select a specific provider for your visit at the bottom of the page. Currently, Dr. Ince, Dr. Levisohn and Heidi Tate, PA-C are available. Learn more about this option and request a visit by visiting this link: DermatologistOnCall.
Please stay safe!
*Please check with your insurance provider if you are not sure of your Telehealth benefits
**Effective 7/15/2020, the fee will increase to $75.
