To assist people in meeting their medical needs in the ongoing pandemic, Bengaluru based DocVita is now live with a unique service offering - a virtual consultation which includes an in-person follow-up at no extra cost, if needed.

Talking about the launch, Anmol Arora, CEO, DocVita said, “I am excited to announce the launch of our mobile app on Android & iOS platforms. The COVID-19 pandemic has made us realize the gaps in our healthcare system, as well as the importance of early identification of diseases. To remove the barriers for people to seek timely medical help, we need to make healthcare more accessible and people-centric.”

“Patients on telemedicine platforms in India are often left with the impression that doctors don’t spend quality time with them in virtual consultations. As a result, the patient ends up feeling that their issues were neglected. We aim to provide the highest standards of virtual care,” said Dr. Amish Pathak, DocVita.
