What happens during a Speedoc house call?
A Speedoc house call proceeds very much like a typical visit to the neighborhood general practitioner (GP). Upon arrival and verification, the Speedoc doctor will ask questions, run tests and diagnose your condition based on your signs and symptoms. He or she can also provide medical certificates (MCs), and perform laboratory investigations as necessary.
If medications are prescribed, the Speedoc doctor will either provide you with the medications on the spot, or hand you a prescription to pick up the medication at a pharmacy of your choice.
For sensitive medical cases, there may be a medical assistant to support you and the doctor for the duration of the house call.
Who are the doctors available on Speedoc?
Speedoc doctors are fully-licensed by the local Medical Council bodies. They also go through a thorough vetting and background check process before they are allowed to conduct house calls as a Speedoc doctor.
When you’re matched with a doctor, you’ll be able to see their name and picture – so that you know ahead of time who’s coming to help you. If you have any questions, concerns or medical information that’s pertinent to the visit, you’ll be able to contact the doctor through in-app messaging and calling to convey this before he arrives.
