We are most interested in serving rural and underserved areas to start. We are focused on a more real time experience rather than just store and forward. We also offer training for these partners (i.e. how to biopsy) as well as additional support such as traveling Mohs technicians and surgeons so that patients don't have to travel to the city for follow-up treatments that may arise from their telederm visit.
