How to see a physi­cian with­out tak­ing the day off work

Elle (Canada) - - Special -

The only thing worse than the doc­tor’s of­fice is the wait­ing room. With the Akira app, you can by­pass that #de­press­ing situ forever. The app links you via text, Face­Time and even old-fash­ioned tele­phone to Toronto-based doc­tors or nurse prac­ti­tion­ers. They can write you a pre­scrip­tion, re­fer you to a spe­cial­ist and or­der lab tests. The ser­vice is cur­rently avail­able in On­tario, but the aim is to roll out the pro­gram to B.C., Que­bec and Al­berta by the end of the year. ($9.99/month, akira.md) C.W.
