Extending Our Services Even Further Through Telehealth

What is an online video visit (telederm, telemedicine, telehealth)?

An online video visit is like an office visit, but it is performed remotely. In a video visit, you will be seeing your provider on your mobile device or your computer, from the convenience of your home.

What types of appointments can I schedule as a video visit? 

Providers can assess symptoms, make a diagnosis, recommend treatment, and send prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy. Follow-up visits with a provider, post-operative appointments, and various dermatology issues such as acne, rash, rosacea, dry skin, and skin infections are all examples of visits that can be done by video chat.

What can I expect when I schedule a video visit?

During a video visit, you will meet “live” with a Bardstown Dermatology provider via online video conference from your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Patients will receive simple, step by step instructions after you book your visit.

How can I prepare for my video visit?

Prior to your appointment, you may log into your patient portal and update your medical history and preferred pharmacy. Find a quiet place in your home with good lighting where you will have privacy. Make sure to allow access to your video and microphone so that your provider can hear and see you. We have found an iPhone or Android phone works best for the video conference, as they are easy to manipulate and show the area of concern.

Will I have to pay my copay for a video visit? 

Yes, you will receive an online bill for your co-payment following your video visit.

How can I schedule a video visit? 

Please call 502-630-0599 to schedule a video appointment or a future in-office visit.
