- Making an online consultation appointment
- For more information about having a virtual consultation, or to learn more about consulting in this way, please contact the clinic.
Take and Send Your Photos in before the Virtual Consultation
- Please send us your photos of areas of concern before the virtual consultation
- Take multiple photos of your body area from different angles. From the Front, both sides and 45 degrees. A static camera is preferable as that doesn’t move around.
- If you’re using a mobile device we suggest you mount or prop your device so that it is stable and captures you in full view or use a computer with a camera if you can. Ask a friend to help.
