About Connect the Doc
Connect the Doc is a service that allows patients to search and book appointments online with dentists, physiotherapists, massage therapists, optometrists, chiropractors, and other healthcare professionals. At the moment Connect the Doc is available to patients, healthcare professionals, and clinics in Greater Vancouver, and we'll be expanding to serve the rest of Canada.
Our mission is to use our expertise as marketers to create and maintain an online platform that easily connects private healthcare professionals and patients.
In May 2010, Nadeem Kassam was getting ready to attend his graduation ceremony when he learned that his dad (a dentist) would have to miss it because of an emergency treatment for a patient. Unfortunately, Dr. Kassam couldn't find another dentist to fill in for him on such short notice. This event inspired Nadeem to look for a solution that would help healthcare professionals like his dad juggle appointments on short notice.
