Note from Apostrophe: Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to access great skincare from a licensed healthcare provider by using our platform. Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare using technology, when a patient is in one location and a provider is in another location. Providing healthcare through technology is called "telehealth." Below we outline the potential benefits and risks of telehealth and ask you to consent to its use as part of your Apostrophe experience. We want to provide you with information around the benefits and the risks, however we want you to make an informed decision about your care.
