Consult An Online Doctor In Nova Scotia

With a mix of quiet farmland, lush landscapes, easy access to the ocean, Nova Scotia is one of appealing and affordable places to live in Canada. It is home to some of the Maritime’s best hospitals, the IWK and QEII, and with Rocket Doctor launching by early fall, the over 65,000 residents waiting for a family doctor will see an increase in options for healthcare in both urban and rural parts of the province.

 

Rocket Doctor is covered by the Nova Scotia provincial health card, MSI.  We offer easy access to physicians 24/7. Starting early this fall, book an appointment to see a doctor with your computer, tablet, or phone.
