Consultations aren’t covered under provincial health plans since they’re conducted via secure text message, and often with an out-of-province doctor to ensure your request can be picked up quickly. They cost $180 and include the applicable diagnosis, and any necessary treatment plans or prescriptions. You can also book 15-minute follow-up appointments for $90, if you or the dermatologist would like to follow your condition.

Next, you'll be matched with a dermatologist

The matching process typically takes several hours — a response is guaranteed in no more than 24 hours.

The dermatologist will review your request in detail, and respond with an applicable diagnosis and treatment plan.

Review your diagnosis and treatment plan

Our online dermatology service allows for a wide variety of prescriptions at the doctor’s discretion with the exception of controlled medications such as narcotics.

Once you accept a prescription, you’ll have the option to pick it up from any pharmacy or we’ll deliver it right to your door at no additional cost.

Skin screenings are important for preventative health.
