In order to schedule a virtual video visit, you MUST call our office. You also must be an existing patient that has been seen in our facilities within the past year.

We use an app called Hale Health that integrates with our electronic health records. It's a video visit that is just like FaceTime! You will receive a registration email once you have scheduled your appointment. To read about data protection and HIPAA compliance, please see the below FAQ's.
If you are an existing patient, you may meet criteria for a virtual visit. You must have been seen in one of our facilities in the past year. Conditions that will apply for virtual visit are:
Acne
Any Rash
Eczema
Psoriasis
Seborrhea
General Medication Refills
Skin infections such as bacterial or fungal infections
If you are coming in for a mole check, skin cancer checks/follow-up, or hair loss, you will not be able to be seen virtually.
Once you call our office and schedule your virtual visit, you will receive a telemedicine consent through the app. Please fill this out prior to your visit. If it is not filled out, your visit may not occur.
As of March 16, 2020, we are not collecting any form of payment up front, unless you are a cash pay patient. We will bill your insurance directly for your virtual visit. Once you receive your EOB from your insurance, you will be responsible for the remainder. Typically a virtual visit is close to the same amount as your in-office visit.
Virtual visits are typically covered by your insurance.
We accept all major credit cards. If you are a cash pay patient, you will have two payment options. When you call to schedule, you can pay right then, or we can collect payment through the app you use for your virtual visit.
As of right now, this service is currently only offered to existing patients that have been seen in our facilities within the last year. We hope to have this feature open to everyone soon. We appreciate your patience!
For the time being, only Arizona residents are eligible for virtual visits. We are currently working on adding other states, so stay tuned! We encourage you to sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of our website to get updates!

Yes! For dermatologists, looking at digital photos and video uploaded by online patients mimics what they’ve already experienced during their education and training to become a dermatologist. Knowing how to analyze and diagnose conditions based on images is very familiar to them, which makes online dermatology such a natural extension of our practice. Of course, not every single medical case is suited for online dermatology; for example, annual full body examinations and certain procedures should be handled through in-office visits. However, thousands of skin, nail, and medical conditions can be diagnosed through the online visit format.
Each visit covers the thorough review, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations for 1 condition.

Messaging

To reply to a message from your doctor, open the message you'd like to reply to and tap the "Reply" button located in the bottom right corner of the page. In some cases, long messages will exceed the length of the screen so you'll need to scroll down to show the "reply" button at the end of the message.
Attaching photos to your messages is a great way to provide information to your doctor that a simple description can't convey.
When writing a message, the camera appears above the keyboard on your screen. Tap this icon to launch the camera. You can either select an image from your camera roll or take a new photo. Please remember that you'll need to give the Hale app permission to access your camera. If you have not already done this during the app set up, you'll be prompted to do so upon attaching your first photo.
If you've opted in to receive notifications from Hale, each time your doctor or someone from your doctor's team sends you a message, you'll hear a sound and receive a push notification. The app icon will also be updated with a red badge indicating the total number of new items. (If you are having trouble receiving notifications, or if you would like to enable them visit your notification setting on your device.)
If you are already using the app when you receive a message, you'll hear the same sound and a notification will drop down from the top of the screen. Tapping this notification will immediately open the new message.
Ensure you have a good connection to your wireless or WiFi service. Messages must be sent to our secure servers before they are delivered to your doctor. Check your connection and try sending the message again.
If you sent a message, but cannot see it in your case, try quitting the Hale app and reopening it. Sometimes an inconsistent connection will allow the message to be sent, but not reflect that change in the app. Logging in again often remedies this.
If you continue to have trouble sending messages after checking your connection, please contact us at support@hale.co to report it. We'll look into the issue right away.
If you are no longer connected to your provider, all of your existing cases will be locked and you will not be able to send them messages or new requests. You can always log in to Hale and view previous activity, however you can no longer communicate directly with your doctor through Hale. Any existing cases you have with your doctor will appear as locked, disabling the ability to reply within the case. If you need to get in contact with your doctor or have questions regarding your access please contact your doctor's office directly.

Health Education from Mayo Clinic

Up to two Mayo Clinic articles may be shown on each of your case cards, giving you easy access to the most recent materials your doctor has sent you. Simply tap the dark blue bar to open the full text article.
To see any additional articles your doctor might have sent before, tap the case name to view the entire case timeline. Any article attachments will be shown as dark blue bars in the timeline and can be opened from there.
Many Mayo Clinic articles contain rich images and diagrams to help you better understand your health and medical concerns. To view an image, simply tap on the small thumbnail and it will be displayed full size. Click the X to close the image and return to the full text article.
There may be times when your doctor would like to send you additional information about a disease, treatment or general health topic. Through Hale, they can provide you access to high quality articles from Mayo Clinic.
When articles are sent by your doctor, they will be included with a message - similar to an attachment. To view the article, simply open a message that has the article icon, read the note from your doctor and tap anywhere in the dark blue area to open the Mayo Clinic content. You can then scroll through the article, expand additional sections and view any full-size images included.

Connected Devices

Yes, you can authorize Hale to access your Apple Health or google Fit data and share it with your participating doctor. If you allow access, your doctor can view your step count, blood glucose levels, and blood pressure.
To allow access:
1. From the dashboard, open the main control panel in the upper lefthand corner.
2. Select 'Apple Health' or 'Google Fit'
3. Click the radio button next to 'Enable Apple Health' or 'Enable Google Fit'
4. Choose which providers to share the data with by selecting the radio button to the right of the providers name.

Questionnaires

There may be times that your doctor would like to ask you for some information, whether to understand your symptoms a bit more or simply check in on how you're doing. Instead of going back and forth amongst messages, structured questionnaires make it quick and easy to provide your doctor with the info they need to provide you with the best possible care.
When questionnaires are sent by your doctor, they will be included with a message - similar to an attachment. To answer a questionnaire, simply open a message that has the questionnaire icon, read the note from your color, and tap anywhere in the green area to launch the questionnaire. The app will then guide you through a series of questions meant to help your doctor better understand what's going on.
There are different types of questions you may be asked; simply read the instructions and answer each one carefully. If you ever need to go back to change an answer, simply swipe down on the green cards to step back in the questionnaire.
Before submitting your answers, you'll be shown a summary of your responses. Review these - and if you need to, simply tap "Start Over " to restart the questionnaire.
Assuming you've already read the message from your doctor, you may also launch a questionnaire directly from the Notification Center or directly from the "Questionnaires" section of your case card. And if you close out of the questionnaire before you've submitted your answers, you can always open it again and keep going. (The app will hold your place, although you may be a asked a few questions again depending on exactly where you exited the first time.)
If you have not submitted the questionnaire you may go back to change your answers. Simply swipe down on the green cards within the questionnaire to step back - and change your answers just as you would if you were answering the first time. If you have already submitted the questionnaire, you may not change your previous answers. If you've submitted something in error, simply send a message to your doctor wishing the case to clarify the issue.
While it is always best to finish a questionnaire in one session – especially given how short they are – the app will keep your place in the middle of a questionnaire if you exit out of it. Reopening the questionnaire will start you again where you left off. (Note that you may be asked a few questions again depending on exactly where you exited the first time.)
