Company description

An amazing free online service that lets you ask real questions to real doctors without having to pay a single dollar if you are willing to wait a few days for a response. Those who need a response in a pressing can pay for live communication via email, phone or video.

The service was started by Canada-based Dr. Suneel Sharman along with serial entrepreneur Prakash Chand, after they saw the need for an interactive online service for people who need a quick answer or guide to health related questions.

In 2014 Ask The Doctor appointed Mr. Suresh Kanumuri as the CTO of the company and Ask The Doctor opened up a dedicated office in Hyderabad, India with a group of very talented engineers from the India Institute of Technology.

Our companies goal is to make sure every single human being on this planet has access to a doctor regardless of their income. Everybody deserves quality healthcare and we believe our company will be able to double life expectancy around the world.
