SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Heal, the on-demand service for doctor house calls, announced today the expansion of its coverage to its fourth market, the entire Silicon Valley area. Through its app, people in Silicon Valley can now request a doctor and receive high-quality medical or preventative care in the comfort of their own home, in typically under an hour. In addition to servicing Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco, the healthcare pioneer now helps patients in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, San Mateo, Foster City, Stanford, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Cupertino and San Jose.
Heal is fundamentally transforming the broken healthcare system in the United States by creating quick access to high-quality urgent, primary, and preventative care physicians. In this on-demand culture, there is an increasing need for immediate services, and now through Heal, getting comprehensive healthcare is easier than ordering food.
"Our on-demand doctor house calls is an example of innovative technology delivering a critical service that everyone can use," said Dr. Renee Dua, co-founder, Heal. "After our patients use Heal for the first time, the most common thing we hear is 'I don't ever want to go to a doctor's office again.'"
The American healthcare system is ripe with inefficiencies. Nearly $40 billion annually is spent on overuse of emergency rooms (ER) and about 46 percent of ER patients could have been treated by a primary care physician. Whether it is avoiding a trip to the ER or urgent care, a routine office visit for you or your kids, or an annual physical, a Heal doctor can address these common medical needs – in your home and on-demand.
Heal delivers comprehensive and unhurried doctor's appointments to a patient's home or office in under an hour for $99. At the click of a button, licensed physicians are available seven days a week any time from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., for anything a patient might require during a traditional office visit, including an annual physical, blood tests, and specialist recommendations. Additionally, Heal now offers seasonal in-home flu shots for $30 across all service areas throughout Southern and Northern California.
Heal was co-founded by entrepreneur and mom of two Dr. Renee Dua, who has surrounded herself with a world-class team of health and technology experts to build and launch Heal.
