In brief: Some may

Some doctors may offer skype as a means of communicating, but generally this is only to existing patients with whom a doctor-patient relationship has already been established.
I have done this and it is a very effective tool. The legal difficulty with a new patient or a consultation patient is that there needs to be a good faith examination to constitute a "visit;" not possible via the skype.
