Option 1: Live Audio/Video Visit

(connect in less than 1 week)


Live Audio/Video Visit

  • No Referral Required.

  • Medications delivered to your doorstep for free. 



Follow up appointments: $89.99

Why is there a fee?

Public health insurance in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland does not currently insure direct-to-patient-device virtual care. 

Sometimes your skin concern just can't wait for months or years. We offer this service for individuals looking to connect with a Dermatologist within a reasonable time frame - less than one week. 

As your province does not have enough Board-Certified Dermatologists, we connect you virtually with Canadian Dermatologists located in other regions who can provide you with the same quality care that you deserve.
