Physicians

Who are the physicians?

We're committed to providing patients across the country with quality care, and this commitment begins with who we select as our caregivers. We've established a rigorous screening and credential verification process for each and every physician applicant, ensuring they meet the highest standards of qualification. All network doctors are U.S.-based, fully licensed, and share our desire to improve healthcare access and quality.

Do you verify credentials?

Yes. Each and every doctor in the physician network is credentialed through VerifPoint, an independent and NCQA certified credentials verification company.

Are physicians able to join on a part-time basis?

Yes. Many physicians choose to supplement their private practice or normal professional activities with part-time telehealth work, whereas others choose to see telehealth patients more frequently; both are available.

How are consults assigned to physicians in the network?

Consults are assigned primarily based on state licensure and state residency of the patients. However, physician availability is also a factor that determines how consults are routed. If a phsyician is not available to take an assignment, they can decline it and it will be forward to the next available physician licensed in the patient's state.
