ABOUT THE SERVICE
The Service that mySkinDoc provides does not in any way replace a traditional face-to-face examination by a dermatologist.
mySkinDoc is an online consultation tool whereby patients provide information of their clinical details filled in via a Web App and can upload pictures of their skin condition to our secure server. The information will then be viewed by a clinician who specialises in dermatology. The clinician will then provide their opinion of the likely diagnosis and a suitable management plan via email in the form of a PDF.
The cost of the Service is the price announced on the Website or through the Software at the time of your use of the Service. mySkinDoc reserves the right to change the price without notice. It is therefore important to check the price before use of the Service.
If any erroneous transactions are made, a case-by-case inquiry will be made and if the payment is shown to be erroneous, a refund will be made in an appropriate manner.
mySkinDoc aims to deliver a reply to your consultation within 2 working days.
Payment will be made during completion of the online form securely via Stripe. An email receipt will be sent to you after payment has been taken.
