Hey guys!

It’s been a long time coming, but after lots of blood, sweat and tears we are almost ready to launch. DocChat is a new telemedicine company that wants to make health care more accessible by using the sophistication of modern smartphones to put you in contact with a doctor in 15 minutes. After all, 75% of doctor’s visits, can be handled without ever seeing a doctor. Yet, did you know that 38 million Americans will wake up tomorrow and not know whether they will be able to see a doctor if they need one?

So, what is telemedicine? Telemedicine has been in practice for more than 40 years but has recently been used as a high-tech means of connecting physicians and patients to provide remote diagnosis and treatment through the use of smartphones, apps, tablets, and websites.

This is great, however the current model under which telemedicine companies have started hasn’t facilitated a level of personal care that we believe people deserve. Instead, it’s been driven by a franchise led mentality which leaves people overpaying for a level of care that is not consistent with standards one would expect.

With the help of a great team, this is how we’re looking to change that.

  1. Connect with a certified doctor via real time audio/video within 15 minutes, or your session is free!
  2. If prescriptions are necessary, they are written up during your session and automatically sent to your local pharmacy.
  3. High level of personal care. You can keep your relationship with your doctor by requesting him/her before beginning a DocChat call.
  4. Forgot something during your consultation with your doctor? You are able to ask free follow up questions for up to a week.
  5. We’re a family. So we want you to add your family members and loved ones as well. And with every person you add, the cost is reduced is by $10, until the fourth one is free!
  6. Absolutely free first consultation for all of January, even with no health insurance! Other specials to follow!

Those are just the some of the many ways we are going to ensure that we can afford everybody the kind of health care they deserve. It all starts in New York.

Until next time,
