Throughout the U.S., there are many underserved areas where primary care physicians do not have easy access to dermatologists. Through AccessDerm, these physicians can easily consult with volunteer dermatologists and better serve patients in need. As more clinics sign up and physicians become trained to use this telemedicine platform, vital dermatologic care will be available to increasing numbers of the population.

“The patient’s provider used AccessDerm to send me a concise description and photographs of the patient. I strongly encourage all of my colleagues to volunteer with their local free or sliding scale clinics to provide dermatology services this way. Without AccessDerm, I would not have been able to identify the patient’s tumor and start on the complex path to get him the care he needs.”
