Dermatology Diagnosis now Available Online!

Do you need to see a dermatologist right away, but can’t find the time to get to BMC? Now, you can communicate with a dermatologist anytime and anywhere, because Boston University Dermatology at BMC is offering safe and secure online consultations.

Whether you have a busy schedule or an urgent (but non-emergency) need, online communications make it easier, faster, and more convenient than ever for you to see a dermatologist. Our experts are available for skin, hair, and nail conditions, whenever you need them.

Our new online communications are easy. You create an account in order to request an online dermatology communication for yourself, your child, or a dependent. Then, upload photos of your skin, hair, or nail concern. In three business days or less, you will receive a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan. Treatment plans also include any medication prescriptions that you can pick up at your local pharmacy. If during your online communication, your doctor determines that you need to have an in-office visit or procedure, you can simply call to schedule an in-person appointment.

Online communications are not covered by insurance. They cost $79. This includes your diagnosis, personalized treatment plan, and prescription routing to your pharmacy. It does not cover the cost of your prescription(s). Only residents of Massachusetts can sign up for immediate online communications with BMC at this time, because our doctors are licensed in Massachusetts.
