Dr. Derma Introduction

I am delighted to welcome my fellow dermatologists to Dr. Derma. It has been no surprise that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive disruption and has proven that we should place a more significant focus on teledermatology.

Dr. Derma will allow you to consult with your patient via the store-and-forward method, and if needed, you can complete an in-person video call. Even though I can see far more patients, my goal has been moving a large portion of my existing practice online.

I find it very convenient treating patients through this medium, and the response has been hugely positive. The Dr. Derma team is responsive and has shaped this application to perfectly suit the dermatologist's needs.

I wish you the greatest success in building your online practice and striving to strengthen dermatology in South Africa.
