Because you think healthcare is old school and backwards. You want to support a group of people with a vision to make healthcare markedly better for you.
Because you like how technology makes your everyday easier. You communicate and get things done online everywhere else, why not solve your health problems this way?
Because you’re curious. You like experimenting and trying new, interesting things.
Because you can’t understand why traditional doctors won’t just communicate with you normally (phone, email, messaging) in a timely manner.
Because you don’t like doing things when you don’t have to. When you think about all your doctor visits in the past, you’ve always wondered if you needed to actually see the doctor in person for this problem.
Because you hate waiting. You’re used to your Lyft arriving in 3 minutes, not doctor appointments in 3 weeks or hour long waits in the waiting room.
Because you don’t want to waste time. Trips to the doctor are a huge hassle.
Because you don’t like feeling fleeced. All the surprise doctor bills that show up in the mail weeks later seem far more expensive than they should be.
Because you want to have a regular doctor and not have to change doctors if you move, change employers, or change insurance companies.
Because you just want your problem solved quickly, efficiently, transparently, and inexpensively.
