Revolutionising Skin Care: The Advantages of Online Dermatology Consultations

Dec 4, 2023
Dr Amit Goyal, Dermatology doctor

mySkinDoc was born out of the idea that we wanted all patients with skin problems to be able to access the right dermatologist care at the right time. As with all medical conditions, dermatology problems also benefit from the old saying 'prevention is better than cure'. Although many skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis unfortunately cannot be cured, they CAN be managed really well in the longer term if you are given the right advice, with the right medications at the RIGHT TIME!

Having run dermatology clinics for over a decade I have found that skin problems only worsen over time as they are not picked up soon enough. This means the skin worsens and rashes can spread. This need not be the case. We have close to a thousand patients who have benefitted from mySkinDoc from all over the United Kingdom, from as far north as the Isle of Arran to the south of England in Bournemouth. mySkinDoc is truly a nationwide dermatology service which puts dermatology experts literally in the palm of your hand. Here are some of the benefits of using mySkinDoc:

1. Unmatched Convenience:

One of the most significant advantages of online dermatology is the convenience it offers. Patients no longer need to travel to a clinic, saving both time and transportation costs. At mySkinDoc, you can schedule appointments at your comfort, ensuring that your skin care fits seamlessly into your busy lifestyle.


Patient Example: Sarah, managing both her career and family, found it remarkably convenient to consult about her skin condition without leaving her office.


2. Accessibility for All:

Online consultations break down geographical barriers, making dermatological care accessible to those in remote or underserved areas. With mySkinDoc, anyone with an internet connection can receive expert advice from qualified dermatologists like myself, no matter where they are in the UK.

Patient Example: John, living in a remote area, accessed specialised dermatological care online, bypassing the challenge of long-distance travel.


3. Prompt Care:

Urgent skin concerns can be addressed promptly through online platforms. mySkinDoc offers timely consultations, allowing for quicker diagnosis and treatment plans, reducing the anxiety associated with waiting for traditional appointments.

Patient Example: Mike, confronted with a sudden skin rash, quickly received expert advice and treatment through mySkinDoc, avoiding the delay of traditional clinic appointments.


4. Privacy and Comfort:

Consulting from the privacy of your home provides a comfort level that might not be achievable in a clinical setting. This is particularly beneficial for patients with skin conditions that might cause self-consciousness or anxiety.

Patient Example: Emma, preferring privacy due to her skin condition, appreciated the discretion and ease of receiving consultations from home.


5. Access to Expertise:

Online platforms like mySkinDoc connect you with experienced dermatologists like myself. Patients receive personalized care backed by the latest research and technological advancements in dermatology.

Patient Example: Ravi, needing tailored care for his eczema, benefitted from the personalised treatment plans crafted by our experienced dermatologists.


6. Cost-Effective:

Without the overhead costs of a physical clinic, online consultations can often be more cost-effective, making quality dermatological care more affordable.

Patient Example: Tom highlighted the financial advantages, noting the affordability of our service. A comprehensive online consultation at mySkinDoc is available at the cost-effective price of just £75.



mySkinDoc, with a consultation fee of only £75, offers a blend of convenience, accessibility, and expert dermatological care. Our platform is a testament to our dedication to providing high-quality, accessible care. Embrace the future of dermatology with us!
