SkyMD is a national telemedicine platform, specializing in dermatology, staffed with doctors that treat patients every day across America. With online dermatologists in all 50 US States, SkyMD's medical team of skin doctors is literally available to treat patients in every zip code, from infants to centenarians!
Our online group of doctors operates no differently than any traditional doctor's office, other than no appointments, and you having more time to interact with your dermatologist. SkyMD accepts most medical insurances, and treats the privacy of your medical data with the utmost importance. Our medical professionals are all board certified doctors, with years of experience in treating a wide range of skin conditions and diseases.
As a group of practicing medical doctors, SkyMD also prescribes medications, the same as if you were evaluated by a doctor in person. Today's medical industry, along with State Boards of Medicine and the majority of private insurance networks, considers telemedicine as equal to being seen in person, and most medical insurance networks consider telemedicine as a covered medical benefit. Dermatology is an obvious and practical fit for the use of telemedicine. Your SkyMD doctor now has the flexibility to evaluate your uploaded photos, or converse with you in a video conference, or even recommend that you still see a doctor in person, depending on what's the right treatment model for each patient.
Access your dermatologist anytime, anywhere. SkyMD brings the dermatologist to your fingertips.
Here's how it works:
1. Download the app (for free) and connect to your dermatologist. Tell us where you live (zip code), and we will recommend a doctor to you, or you can select from any doctor in your home state.
2. Take photos of your skin, hair or nail concern, and complete a medical intake comprised of a few simple questions about your primary concern, symptoms, a medical history, allergies, and anything else you'd like to tell us about your skin issue.
3. Your dermatologist will evaluate your case, diagnose your condition, and recommend a personalized treatment plan, including prescriptions if necessary. You tell us where to send the prescription, too. Your choice of pharmacy!
Common issues that can be diagnosed and treated through the SkyMD online dermatology platform include but are not limited to acne, rosacea, cold sores, dandruff, hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, eyelash thinning, hair loss, nail issues, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, skin aging, and other skin lesions...but the list of skin-related issues that can effect a patient goes on and on. Trust your dermatologist and their medical training to ensure you receive a proper and correct diagnosis, followed by an effective treatment plan.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m going to keep this review as short and to the point as possible. Firstly, $90 is kind of steep- BUT, you’re paying for convenience and honestly my experience went super well. I got 2 prescriptions immediately. I’ve only been to a dermatologist once, I spent $200 out of pocket for the doctor to walk in the room for 2 seconds then prescribe me a $60 topical without asking me about my skin or even looking at it. He then proceeded to rush me out of the office. I never went back to a dermatologist, but since I’m wearing a mask everyday at work my face looks horrible. I was looking for a quick solution and this was it. I honestly don’t have any complaints about the service, I do however have one about the app which is that the pharmacy kept somehow changing itself back to the wrong one after I corrected it 2 times. This may be a glitch or something, however after contacting the doctor she got it sent over to the correct location quickly. Overall, I would recommend this app.

Thanks very much, gaby3022. We appreciate the feedback.
We're adding mail order options to our pharmacy section, which we expect to deploy in a couple of weeks, and we've also given your feedback to our developers to see if they can recreate the glitch you experienced.
Excellent. Really excellent.
A dermatologist usually has some wait for an appointment, than a usually long wait in a waiting room. The idea of having a skin issue and not having to think 10 times if you should or not go to a doctor but rather you just open an app from the comfort of your home, submit your question is great. The app asks literally all the relevant questions a doctor would ask, and there you go. You get an answer within minutes from a doctor with a treatment plan and/medication. They got some really great experienced doctors with decades of experience that I wonder why such a middle aged experienced doctor is on an app... although they have physical locations. No making an appointment, no waiting room, no annoying secretary... my experience exceeded my expectations. I think this is just as good as a physical doctor unless of course a need of a physical job on something. Definitely recommend it. (Not affiliated and not asked to wrote this. Just an honest review from an amazed user.)

Thank you, jj milk! We truly appreciate your feedback.
Dr Calame is fantastic
Started to suffer from acne over the last 14 months. I hit 31 and boom my face broke out literally out of no where and kept getting worse. Went to a dermatologist who used one topical with no improvement. She dismissed my self esteem problems. Went to a second dermatologist who offered oral medicine that worked great until I experienced a side effect from the sun. That dermatologist said we will put you on medicine in the fall and winter and take you off for the spring and summer. So basically I was to just deal with acne in my 30s for half of the year. Thank goodness I found Dr Calame! She listened to my concerns and did not minimize what I was dealing with. She cares about her patients. She explained in detail what the treatment plan will be and WHY. This is a complete no brainer. You can get an instant appointment from a doctor who is the best I have ever seen. All treatment is in writing which makes it great to refer back to. I will never look back and recommend this to anybody who is frustrated with any skin condition!
