Doctor Pocket connects you to specialists that have rotated at Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins & McGill!
Things we can help you with:
Coughs, Colds, Allergies and Sore Throats. Symptoms can be overwhelming and apply to numerous conditions and illnesses. Doctor Pocket specialists can help you find the root of the problem by identifying symptoms and connecting you with the right doctor who can assist you in feeling better. First, select a specialist. Next, you will be asked for some medical history and to discuss symptom specifics such as when the symptoms began as well as their exacerbating and alleviating factors. The specialist might also ask you for a photo to further access your situation. Attaching an image gives doctors valuable additional information from a diagnostic point of view and will help them deliver more thorough advice. Doctor pocket provides you the assistance, attention, and care at the comfort of your own home or remote location. It provides you a virtual experience and the peace of mind without leaving your home.
Virtual & remote care while traveling:
Doctor Pocket offers medical advice in situations where local specialists cannot speak your language, such as when you are traveling. Doctors can also answer questions about the medical essentials to bring with you before you travel, vaccinations you may need to take, specific precautions to follow for your destination, and more via the comfort and convenience of your own home. You can consult the doctor to assist you with any additional medical issues you may encounter during your travel as well.
Doctor Pocket provides help and assistance with minor injuries such as sprains, bruises, and soreness. Severe injuries such as fractured bones and bodily trauma cannot be assessed, you must head directly to the emergency room in such situations. However, our specialists via Doctor Pocket can provide an urgency in situations and cases that may not be obvious to the neutral eye. The Doctor will advise you to go to the hospital if he or she has any doubt about the severity of your injury. If your injuries or illness is not severe, Doctor Pocket can save you a trip to the clinic and help you nurse your injuries or illness remotely or until you return home from your travels. Doctor Pocket's secure communication platform provides you with virtual medical care and attention from doctors you trust.
Eye & Skin Conditions
Eye conditions can be very critical. Doctor Pocket offers assistance with minor eye complaints such as styes, pink eye, and red eye issues that can be handled with over the counter (OTC) products. In addition, if deemed necessary, your doctor will advise you on the use of hot or cold compresses to be applied and other home care specifics. Any severe condition that needs immediate medical help, such as sharp objects in your eye, you will need to seek urgent medical care at a physical clinic.
