Given the current public health crisis, it is currently very challenging to practice medicine, to say the least. The primary focus for me and everyone at Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation is to keep our staff and patients safe. Sadly, I am not seeing patients in the office for non-emergent issues until further notice.
I will, however, remain available via phone, email and social media. Additionally, I will be available for Virtual Consults for those patients (new and current) who would like to connect with me in that manner.
From the safety and comfort of your home, you and I could have a face-to-face visit, and 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.
Step 1: PLEASE schedule an appointment in the normal fashion by calling the office at (617) 996-7604. All virtual consultations must be scheduled via a phone call with the office. This call will come from our office once your request below is submitted. Thank you for your patience in this!! All attempts will be made to accommodate schedule requests, but please know that 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. Undressing will not be done on these consults. Photos will be required to discuss any body area below the neck.
Step 3: About 5 minutes prior to your appointment, you will get a text message or email (you can let us know your preference) with a link to the appointment. We are using the Zoom platform currently. This is a free service. Please have this app downloaded PRIOR to your appointment. 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: Dr. Doherty will connect with and discuss whatever plastic surgery issue you want!
