Most frequent questions and answers

Good Doctors is a telemedicine walk-in clinic and does not sign up patients like a regular family doctor. But we understand that finding a new family doctor can be difficult so we do offer services to help while you are looking to find a more permanent family doctor. We can help  manage chronic conditions, order tests and refer you to a medical specialist if needed. We also offer the ability to book an appointment with the same doctor so that you are being cared for by the same physician.

Please be advised that doctors will be calling from an unknown or blocked number so you may miss their call if you are screening unknown numbers.
