Leadership You Can Count On

At MyOwnDoctor, we envision a future where healthcare is accessible, equitable, and optimal for everyone. That’s why we created a virtual care platform designed to get people more engaged in their care and educated about their health—with a strong support system to ensure that treatment plans and healthy behaviors take root.

We bridge the gap between the convenience of telemedicine and the connection to local, in-person care. We leverage community partners to anchor patient care close to home, and engage patients as whole people who have unique, individual lives and needs that must be taken into account in order for them to thrive.
Who we are image

“We are patients too. As doctors, we too believe that doctors whom we know and trust can provide us with the best care. We created MyOwnDoctor to connect all patients to the doctors they know and trust whether that's an existing provider or one from your own community.”
