Appointment availability: I cannot get an in person appointment where I live (a big city) for 6 weeks. This app allowed me to connect with a medical professional the next day. (Same day was available as well). Professionalism: I felt that in my two appointments, I was treated with respect, not judged, and I was able to express my issues and thoughts to someone who was actually listening.
