Tele-Dermatology During COVID-19
May 14, 2020
Dr. Anna Chacon describes her learning experience using telemedicine to make everyday patient interactions possible.
My experience with tele-dermatology has been a learning experience and a teaching opportunity in more ways than one. Given the pandemic, states with higher populations, such as my home state of Florida, have issued executive orders postponing elective and routine visits or procedures, and are encouraging all physicians to focus their efforts on the current situation, along with patients in urgent need. As such, there has been a nationwide shift for dermatologists to care for patients with routine issues through telemedicine.
