Ratings and Reviews
THANK YOU. I received a response in under two hours stating pityriasis rosea. At work, I was advised to go to an Urgent Care facility where they looked at one little area of my rash for 5 seconds and stated it was definitely fungus and gave me Nystatin as treatment. It didn't seem correct so I got in to see a dermatologist. GUESS WHAT? Immediately the dermatologist stated it was definitely NOT fungus and it was most likely pityriasis rosea. Ha! Thank you!!!! Clearly First Derm is VERY reliable and I received this original response in under two hours and for less money! Definitely remembering this for the future..

Thank you for your account. Happy to help. Skin diseases can be challenging sometimes for non-dermatologists.

Little to no support
I read a review about this app and decided to send in a 48 hour case for $30. About an hour later, I decided to cancel. I sent an email, and I got a what appears to be automated response saying the case was under review by another doctor and that’s why it was taking so long. I sent another email and actually canceled the case in the app. Well guess what, I was still charged. Keep in mind, I never saw any result. I sent several other emails and even called a number I found online, which always goes to a answering machine. They never reply or call back. Now I have to file a claim with the bank for services not rendered. Stay away from this app unless you want a headache to go with your skin issue.

Hi Mr Bait
Thank you for your feedback. Our support replied to you within a few hours of your concern. Your case had already been reviewed by a dermatologist and we cannot refund cases that have already been processed. Your results have been delivered, you can see the answer under the my cases folder. If you cannot retrieve your answer, you may also see it on our website entering your 8 digit case number.
Best dermatologist service! Over an app! It's absolutely lovely and at a fraction of the cost of a private dermatologist. Went to the hospital twice and none of the treatment they gave me worked. I haven't tried the First Derm treatment yet but even if it does not work I still received more (quality) information than I did at the hospital. Only waited about 30h for the answer and I do not regret a single dollar I spent. Thank you very much !
