Dermatology Affiliates, part of the QualDerm network, has 5 locations throughout the Atlanta metro area. Each of Dermatology Affiliates’ 6 dermatologists are currently providing virtual patient care with in-office visits reserved for emergency situations.

In the early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak, QualDerm expanded its TeleHealth platform in each of its  markets. This effort allows providers to continue to diagnose and treat many skin conditions while helping to mitigate virus spread. Additionally, to help ensure the safety of staff and patients, all QualDerm-affiliated practices are observing strict screening procedures for those who require in-office visits.

QualDerm’s Georgia network also includes Dermatology of Athens, which has practice locations in Athens and Watkinsville. In total, QualDerm currently has 44 practice locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
