Very Helpful and I Would Definitely Try This Again

I had a rough patch of skin that, even after consulting two doctors, I couldn’t get a clear diagnosis. This was worrying me, so I turned to First Derm and opted for the 8-hour response option. The Doctor sent a detailed response back to me within two hours. This is such a nice service. to have especially when it takes forever to get an appointment to see a dermatologist.
