Every nation has its set of challenges when it comes to providing quality healthcare. To bridge the gap between patients and doctors, many startups are transforming the image of healthcare services.
Founded in 2015, Doctor Anywhere was established to provide healthcare providers with more options for care delivery, improving their access and reach to patients. The company's current products offer care-seekers quick and easy access to healthcare providers through video consultations on the mobile phone. These services are currently available for the public's use through the Doctor Anywhere app.
Led by a team from diverse backgrounds, the startup has launched three business verticals to-date - General Practitioner, Lactation, and Medical Aesthetics consultations. Since the launch of Doctor Anywhere's first service in October 2017, the team has more than doubled its size to support growing business operations.

With a sustainable business model, strong leadership and a versatile team, Doctor Anywhere plays a key role in helping to shape the future of this rapidly evolving industry."
