A Message from the CEO

In 2007, I took a critical look at the Canadian medical system as well as my own private practice. I came to the conclusion that in spite of the fact that we have excellent and dedicated physicians, there appeared to be a widespread problem of access to healthcare. Many patients were without a family physician. Others waited long periods of time, sometimes months, to see a specialist forcing them to seek help via the emergency department at a local hospital.

In my own office I realized that my secretary spent an inordinate amount of time on the phone, booking appointments and confirming the appointments for the next day. I also realized that if an appointment was cancelled at the last minute, I had no way of filling the space with another patient without having my secretary call a number of patients.

I set about to address these problems by developing an user friendly web-based appointment system for healthcare professionals and patients. Given the fact that one can book an airline ticket, a hotel or a restaurant online, I saw no reason why a patient could not book an appointment with a physician in the same manner. My sole goal in creating DoctorDirect.com was to improve access to medical care, which became our motto. Not only can patients book an appointment with their physician, they can also find a physician who is taking on new patients, in a timely manner. New physicians can begin registering patients even before their graduation.

We are currently looking to broadening our horizons by offering our service to nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, psychologists, and para-medical professions. If you would like more information, please contact us! We will be more than happy to offer you a demonstration online or at your office.
