For the last seven years, Sherpaa’s doctors have obsessively cared for tens of thousands of our members. We hire our doctors and they work as exclusively online doctors at Sherpaa full-time. Sherpaa is their practice and this is what they do all day, every day. These aren’t random doctors with free-time in between patients. They work together as a team to care for you. If you have something complicated or unclear, they’ll talk amongst themselves to gather a consensus and formulate a plan just for you. They are the core of Sherpaa.
We hire our doctors because they are:
- Well trained at world-renowned academic institutions
- Have more than 10 years of experience practicing after finishing residency
- Expert communicators with warm, empathetic personalities
- Forward-thinkers looking to push healthcare forward, not maintain the status quo
Sherpaa’s practice is private and personal
