This app always gives really fast responses and is very convenient to use. It has helped me a lot and saved me time to do other things. Would recommend to download

Hi and thank you for the feedback! Happy to hear if there's anything we can improve to make us a five-star service, let us know at email@example.com :)
They told me I had skin cancer. I don't!
I then visited a dermatologist who told me it looked nothing like skin cancer! I wasn't even able to reply to the "anonymous" dermatologist who reviewed my case. Sleepless nights for nothing.

Thanks for your feedback. It is not always easy to judge from an image - online doctor services has its limitations. When we suspect it can be some form of skin cancer, we always take the precaution to see a doctor in person to rule it out. To miss a skin cancer can have grave consequences All our dermatologists are very professional and we audit 20% of our answer every month. Have a good day.
Wow- saved my trip
I have been here for a week and I got a weird thing on my nose. I found out about the app from a friend that lives here. He had used it before. Rightly so their derms gave me an answer within hours. I could go to the CVS and bought what they recommended. After a few days my rash went away.
Can recommend the app if you don't have access to a dermatologist. Well spent money if you consider the time I spent
