Anyone and everyone who wants convenient, affordable quality medical coverage - anytime, anywhere! Simply pick up your phone and get connected to a licensed physician in your state for advice, diagnosis and prescriptions as needed.
Busy People - Are you too busy to find the time to go to the doctor, if you can even get an appointment? Do you want to avoid the hassle of making a doctor’s appointment, the struggle of getting to it, and then waiting your turn in a room full of sick people? Or do you just not like going to the doctor?
New Parents - When you or your child is running a high fever in the middle of the night, you can’t wait until morning for treatment, and an Emergency Room visit would cost hundreds unnecessarily.
Travelers - Whether you are on a business trip or just enjoying vacation with the family, Ask-the-Dr provides you access to physicians no matter where you are. Taking time out to see a doctor would undoubtedly interfere with your plans.
