Have you recently needed a doctor’s appointment, only to find that the next available appointment is days or even weeks away? You are not alone. In fact, only 47% of patients receive a same day GP appointment in Australia. 
What happens to the other 53%? Many end up in our emergency departments unnecessarily. In 2018 there were 3 million “avoidable” hospital visits with patients attending emergency departments for conditions that could and should be handled by their GP. 
Further to this many turn to Dr Google, an alarmingly 25% of women misdiagnosed themselves with Dr Google’s help. There is a better way.
Doctors on Demand provides peace of mind knowing that medical attention is accessible online 24/7, no matter where you are. Our online doctors can help with many health concerns from contraception to colds and flu, providing medical certificates and repeat prescriptions in a discreet and confidential setting, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We use smart tech to connect you with a doctor via secure video. Did you know that up to 70% of GP presentations can be dealt with via video conferencing? With Doctors on Demand cutting edge technology and highly qualified doctors, you know you are in safe hands.
If you have utilized non-traditional healthcare, you are already part of the growing healthcare revolution. A recent study surveying almost 8000 consumers found that nearly 30% had used some form of virtual care and more and more are seeking providers with digital capabilities.  There is no doubt this is the future.
Doctors on Demand’s online doctor service is available right now and offers many advantages, but here are just a few:
The convenience of Doctors on Demand applies to every stage of the appointment process. Don’t waste time calling to arrange an appointment. Booking an appointment is easy and done with the click of a button. Plus, there is no travel time needed and no waiting in doctors’ offices – you can be connected via video conference to the doctor immediately or choose an appointment time that suits you.
Our doctors can provide instant prescriptions and referrals as well as medical certificates if you’re unfit to work. Prescriptions are sent immediately to your pharmacy so you can collect your medication exactly when you need it, or for non-urgent cases you can choose to have your medication delivered direct to your door. Medical certificates and referrals are sent directly to you via email, just like when you walk out of the doctor’s office.
Using an online service is discreet and confidential. Accessing a doctor from the comfort of your own home enables you to be open about your health concerns – you have the peace of mind knowing you will enjoy the same level of privacy as a physical doctor’s consulting room without all the other people – in the waiting room, in the reception. It’s easier than you might think. At Doctors on Demand we want you to get the healthcare you need without any embarrassment.
Doctors on Demand makes online appointments easy to access and manage through our cutting-edge technological platform. We are committed to providing a high quality of health care and ideal patient experience. For more information on our services visit our website or contact our friendly staff.
