The Rocket Doctor Team, 2022

“Rocket Doctor was founded by doctors for doctors.

We started the company to empower independent physicians to improve the quality and access of care available to everyone.

 

Our digital health platform and marketplace connects doctors and patients in a unique way; bringing the world’s most advanced doctor’s office directly to patients.

 

The end result is faster, more convenient and more compassionate care. “
