    ABOUT HEY DOCTOR

    HeyDoctor was started in 2017 by Brendan Levy and Rohit Malhotra and is based on an undeniable truth – waiting rooms suck. Their aim is to provide everyone with affordable, high-quality healthcare and want HeyDoctor to be the first name you think of when it comes to online healthcare. Today, HeyDoctor is based in San Francisco, Seattle, and New York and has an extensive network that consists of industry-leading doctors and researchers.

    Levy, a fully qualified family doctor, claims that HeyDoctor is the end result of his desire to make connecting patients and doctors as simple, fast and convenient as possible. Using HeyDoctor, you can be connected with a board-certified doctor, chat to them about your medical goals and have access to a number of health-related services in just minutes.

    While HeyDoctor is currently based on a direct to the customer system, Levy has stated that it does hold the potential to partner with particular heath systems and provide their services and ongoing care to “specific patient populations”, which would allow patients to follow up via the HeyDoctor platform, receive better results and enjoy lower costs. Patients private information is kept safe using high-tech encryption and specialist security consultants
