How to see a physician without taking the day off work
The only thing worse than the doctor’s office is the waiting room. With the Akira app, you can bypass that #depressing situ forever.

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.
