Telemedicine: See a doctor online in a few minutes

Not feeling good today? Having an appointment with a primary care physician and going to an urgent care facility can be complicated and costly, especially for those traveling or busy with their day to day life.

That's why we offer a new service allowing you to avoid the waiting room. At home, in a hotel, at work…no matter where you are, you can now see a doctor online in a few minutes.  The process only takes a few minutes from a computer, a tablet or a smartphone.

How does it work?
  1. Create an account in the secured platform. It only takes 1 minute!
  2. Describe your symptoms briefly
  3. Talk to a doctor by video call. The average wait time is only a few minutes and the doctor will take his time to answer your questions.
  4. After a diagnosis, the physician can provide prescriptions for a pick up in a nearby pharmacy. Medications can also be delivered at home depending on the location.

Is it reliable?

Telemedicine has been proven as a safe and effective option to access healthcare. It is also useful for the community as it gives more time to the medical staffs working in a medical center to take care of the patients who need it the most.

Is it covered by insurances?
