Below you can read what some of our users thought was great about the service.

“Rather than dealing with the hassles of seeing a doc in person, I went the app route. The results were…surprising. I think the entire “visit” took about 5 minutes.”

“Your only real option up until now has been to wait it out, hope it goes away or schedule a doctor’s visit if it seems bad. Submit it to a team of board certified dermatologists.”

Sunshine Dad


“So, is the service useful? In our case, as hovering parents, sure! For a patient who thinks they may have basal cell carcinoma and needs a quick opinion of whether to see a Dr, absolutely! ”
