Dr. Blake Galler trained at Brooke Army Medical Center. After spending eight years in the Army, he has several years of experience in dermatology and teledermatology.

“During my training, I reviewed, diagnosed, and treated cases from all over the world for our soldiers, airmen, and sailors from the Middle East, Central Africa to Japanese islands. That experience was among the best offered by any training institution and has well suited me to provide teledermatology services.”

After active duty service, Dr. Galler continued to pursue his interest in teledermatology through expanding the program offered by Veterans Health Affairs through Alaska to include remote clinics in Fairbanks, Homer, Kenai, Juneau and the Mat-su region. Also, to provide a broader range of accessible services to our veterans, Dr. Galler has been working to retool the VA Teledermatology service to include patient acquired photos similar to private sector services such as FixWarts.com

 

Personal Statement:

I think everyone understands the potential of telemedicine and teledermatology. It can offer safe, effective treatment for many of the most common medical issues that we have known how to treat for decades. Now, we can provide these services across a broader population to more patients without the hassle of scheduled appointments and the limitations of a single visit encounter. Teledermatology allows for more convenient scheduling, ongoing follow up, and direct medical treatment all in one closed system. It truly provides for the visit to be focused on the patient and treatment
