Dr. Weitzbuch and the team here at Calabasas Dermatology have always been devoted to your safety and comfort — and particularly so in these stressful and trying times. For your safety and comfort, we are very pleased to announce and make available to you our new Video Consultation and Telemedicine functionality.
Telemedicine uses any secure electronic or digital means of connection between a patient and a care provider. Means of connection can include cell phones, computers and online web portals. From work, from home or from anywhere in the world, a patient can reach out and connect up to their healthcare provider, cosmetic surgeon, pediatrician or dermatologist for an evaluation, diagnosis and, in many cases, treatment itself. While telemedicine naturally has its limitations, it has been in use since the late 1950s and is today used by millions in America and around the world.
Absolutely. The current orders from the California Governor, mandate that only elective procedures be rescheduled, and the orders also require that healthcare visits be done remotely as much as possible. The Governor’s “Stay Home Except for Essential Needs” order asks that you, “Contact your health care provider to see what services they are providing.” Hence, this page.
In accordance with that same order, the State Public Health Officer also designated “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers,” under which sector we fall. The simple distinction to be made is whether your procedure is elective or imperative.
If you feel you need it, we will also provide a letter on our office’s letterhead confirming that you are in fact traveling to or from a necessary procedure from an authorized healthcare provider.
Taking advantage of a video consultation or telemedicine session with Calabasas Dermatology is simple and easy. All that is required is a video call setup on an iPhone, Android, PC or iMac with video call ability. Calling from a quite, well-lit place in the comfort of your home is best.
Reach out here using our Virtual Consultation page, at which you can securely provide medical information as well as upload any pictures or attachments you care to. Calabasas Dermatology will quickly get back to you. If you wish to contact us about something of a much more timely nature, please call us at the office.
Many of our patients have questions about financing available at this time. The following insurance plans are still fully covering office visits:
For patents that don’t have insurance, Calabasas Dermatology offers cash rates.
