But let’s fact it—you’re a busy person, and you don’t have time to take out of your schedule and see a doctor.

You simply call Dr. Arsenault’s office, set up a time, and meet with Dr. Arsenault or her assistants digitally to discuss your problem. Whether it’s refilling a prescription for a skin condition Dr. Arsenault was previously aware of or diagnosing a new problem, she can usually do it simply by seeing the issue over the video. If she recommends you come in for further testing, you can then arrange an appointment around your schedule.
