Dermatologist Dr. Jon Ward says this service can be especially helpful for busy parents. Patients create a secure on-line account and can upload pictures of the problem area. Within 24 hours, patients will receive a diagnosis and treatment plan.

The service costs less than $60. Dr. Ward says it's especially helpful for acne, eczema or psoriasis. Of course, if the doctor feels the patient needs to be seen in the office, he or she will let the patient know.
