Dr. Robert Solomon

Dermatologist, Maple

Maple provides 24/7 access to care by secure message, audio or video for all common conditions of the skin, hair and nails.

Hesitant to leave home or to visit a medical clinic, many Canadians have delayed getting their health concerns checked out during the pandemic. But Dr. Robert Solomon says it is important not to let your health take a backseat.
“Illness doesn’t take a break. Ignoring rashes, acne or especially suspicious freckles or skin moles, can result in more significant health concerns down the line if you let them go unchecked for too long,” says Dr. Solomon, one of Maple’s Canadian-licensed dermatologists.

Founded in 2015, Maple operates across Canada, providing 24/7 access to care by secure message, audio or video. Its physicians, specialists and allied healthcare professionals are Canadian licensed and practice in their respective fields in Canada.

Dermatologists treat conditions of the skin, hair and nails, including acne, hair loss, rashes, eczema, dermatitis, skin and nail infections and shingles. “Many common conditions, like acne, nail infections or hair loss, only need a visual inspection to be diagnosed,” says Dr. Solomon, adding that moles can also be diagnosed, mapped and tracked over time, with a special mole scanner computer called FotoFinder, which is also available through the Maple platform.

Booking is fast and easy

If you need to see a dermatologist, download the Maple app. You simply enter your symptoms and attach any relevant pictures and your case is securely sent to a Canadian-licensed dermatologist. You’ll hear back from the first available dermatologist in 24 hours or less. The service is available in many provinces and you don’t even need a referral.

If you’ve put off getting a new rash or suspicious mole checked out, Dr. Solomon says now is the time to do it. Maple’s dermatologists can see you in a matter of hours—without you ever having to leave your home.
