When Everyone Depends on You, Depend on DermatologistOnCall

According to a Pew Research Center Survey, 47% of American adults in their 40s and 50s are simultaneously raising children and caring for aging parents. Dubbed the "sandwich generation," millions of middle-aged adults are now leading incredibly hectic lives. These individuals are balancing after-school activities, three generations of health decisions, and their own employment obligations. Under pressure like this, convenient, affordable solutions and flexible scheduling options are essential in getting it all done.

Consider this.

Leaving the office, picking up patients for check-ups, commuting to a doctor's office, and sitting in the waiting room can consume a full day. Vacation time and sick leave are precious. Sacrificing even a few hours of employment can be a significant burden on a family.

Telemedicine to the rescue.

With DermatologistOnCall, an appointment can be conducted in 10 minutes at any time, from anywhere. All you need is a computer or a cell phone. And, for those with complex medical conditions, the very young, and aging individuals, the benefits are even greater. Using telemedicine to conduct a visit means no exposure to waiting room germs.

Improving communication for caregivers.

DermatologistOnCall provides patients and caregivers with written instructions through our platform. Prescriptions are sent directly to the pharmacy of the patient's choice, making pickup straightforward and convenient. And DermatologistOnCall is versatile. Our service can be used to diagnose new problems – like conducting a spot check – or managing existing conditions – like acne or eczema.

Are you a member of the "sandwich generation?" Save time by taking your family's dermatology care online through DermatologistOnCall. In a few minutes and with a few photos, conditions can be reviewed by one of our board-certified dermatologists. In an average of 24 hours, you'll have a diagnosis, treatment plan, and prescriptions sent to the pharmacy.
