Virtual Appointments

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Sundocs has fast-tracked some changes to serve patients needs from a distance. 

We have teamed up with Firstcheck to offer a robust, safe and private teledermatology solution enabling us to to see you and give advice from afar through remote consultations. 

How does it work?

Simply download the first check app, take a photo of your concerning lesion, upload the photo and choose Dr David Hassan as your provider. David will review the lesion within 7 days and discuss with you the diagnosis any treatments if required.

Take great photos at home

To improve this system, Sundocs encourages the use of skinscope smart phone attachments. You can purchase a skin check care package on the firstcheck website, which includes a dermoscopic attachment for your smartphone. This will allow you the patient to take a professional magnified image to assist in the telediagnosis.

It’s also important to take photos in good light, holding the camera as still as possible to get the highest quality image possible for review. Take a look at this guide from Firstcheck on how to take the best photos of your moles or skin spots here.

Healthcare is changing

The delivery of health care has certainly been altered by Covid-19. However, it is important not to forget that skin cancer still exists and needs to be dealt with in a timely fashion. Please pay attention to your skin and communicate your concerns.
