2) Open the message from your provider and verify your DOB.
Tap the link to the text message from your provider that included instructions about your video visit.
From here, you will verify your DOB before you can join the visit. You will only need to do this if you are new to Klara, or it's been 30 days since you last verified your DOB.
Tap the link that says "Your Video Visit."
You may receive a text like this at the time of your visit, or just before your visit with your provider letting you know they're ready to begin. Tap the link in the text to join the visit from your phone.

4) Check your settings. Check to make sure that your microphone and camera are working, and that your device has a strong connection. When you're ready to start the visit, tap "I'm Ready".
If your provider hasn't joined the visit yet, you'll see a message letting you know that they'll be with you shortly.
5) Join the visit! As soon as your provider joins, you'll be placed in the visit with them.
When the visit is over, click the red button to hang up.

What is Teledermatology?
Teledermatology is a sub-specialty in the medical field of dermatology where phones, computers or other devices are used to exchange medical information in order to diagnose and treat various skin ailments.
What conditions are appropriate for a virtual visit?
Just about anything! We can help with acne, rashes, growths etc. New problems or follow up visit are equally appropriate. If the doctor believes a procedure or in-office visit is required she can schedule that for you during the consultation. Full body skin screenings will not be possible using this technology. If you aren’t sure, call our office, and we will help guide you.
Can I use my insurance?
Yes. Medicare and most major private insurance companies are covering virtual visits during the COVID-19 public health crisis*. However, these must be live video visits. Please call our office to schedule an appointment today. See instructions at the top of the page on the day of your appointment. We are using a platform called doxy.me for this service. It works on either phones or computers (as long as there are audio and video capabilities)
*If your insurance denies the claim you will be personally responsible for the bill.
I have an office visit booked-- can I switch to a virtual visit instead?
