Please review this video prior to your consultation to familiarize yourself with the virtual consultation portal and please also review this information to help you prepare to use the myTouchMD Patient Experience app before/after your virtual consultation.
Photos: Prior to your consultation, please utilize the myTouchMD app to upload photos into your myTouchMD account. We will use these photos during your consultation. Please take and upload one (1) photo of each angle of the area of your concern (i.e., face, body, etc…).
- You may take the photos yourself if desired. If you do so, please utilize a mirror for body consults. For the face, please utilize the “selfie” mode.
- You may have someone else take the photo if desired.
- If at all possible, please have a clean background for your photo. For example, take the photo in front of a blank wall that is free of distractions. We also recommend taking each angle of the photo at the same distance and level, and using good lighting.

We are excited to visit with you soon!
