I am thrilled to announce a new option for patients to connect with me and my office! We are offering Virtual Consults.
This is a safe and protected way for me to meet a patient via an internet connection we can discuss all things plastic surgery!
All you need is a smart phone, computer, or tablet that has internet access, a camera, and a speaker function.
Your virtual appointment will be scheduled through our office like any other appointment. Virtual appointments are limited. If you would rather a phone call with me, we can arrange that as well.
Here are the steps:
Step 1: All virtual consultations must be scheduled and confirmed via a phone call with the office. You could begin the process by filling out the form below and requesting an appointment. Once the request is received, you will receive a phone call to schedule your appointment. This call will come from our office. Thank you for your patience in this!! A confirmation via the phone is necessary to confirm the appointment.
Step 2: You will be scheduled as a normal “office visit” and will get an appointment time. Instructions for your visit will be reviewed with you over the phone. You may be asked to send photographs prior to your appointment to a secure email if you have not done it already. This may be done via the form below. Undressing will not be done on these virtual consults. Photos will be required to discuss any body area below the neck.
Step 3: When you book your appointment, you will get a text message from TeleHealth with a link to the appointment. We are using the Nextech platform currently. You will be instructed to NOT connect to the appointment via the text until the date and time of your visit. This will be reviewed in detail with you on the phone. All attempts will be made to keep you safe and private. No personal or financial information will be transmitted during this consult in an effort to maintain your privacy. If you would rather connect via a phone call, please let us know! We are happy to do that as well.
Step 4: During the consultation, Dr. Doherty will connect with and discuss whatever plastic surgery issue you want!
