For people without a family doctor, this service is a MUST. Thank you for attending to my concerns quickly, at a convenient time for me, without a 8-12 hour wait in a hospital or walk in clinic.

Very easy to make an appointment, I got a call minutes after submitting an online form and had an appointment booked for the following business day. The doctor was efficient, addressed my concerns and I received a prescription that day. Will use again when needed!

I used Rocket Doctor recently for my daughter. The registration and booking of the appointment was easy to do, with a follow up call from them to follow up and let us know when to expect to speak to a doctor. Not only was the Doctor on time, he was thorough and the service we experienced was awesome. In less than 15 minutes, we were done and her Rx was sent over to our local pharmacy. Thank you soo much! I will absolutely be using this service again and telling others about it!
