What does it do?

It connects you with trustworthy medical professions answers all your health-related questions. If you need to see a doctor, it will show you options in your area, and you can request an appointment right on the app. Not sure you've got a proper diagnosis? You can get second and third opinions here too.


Why do we like it?

Your privacy is respected (in line with HIPPA laws), so when you chat with a doctor you know your sensitive conversation is secure. It's a time-saver, too, because you can use appointment prep tools to take care of your co-pay ahead of time and gauge how long the queue is in the waiting room. So next time you have a weird bunion you don't want to ask a friend about, you can do it privately, within an app.
