To use MyPocketDoctor, simply register on the My Pocket Doctor via the app through the App Store/Google Play Store or via their website (mypocketdoctor.com) and wait for an activation link with username and password. Users can also register via text by sending their email address and cellphone number to 29290DOCTOR (or to 29290362867) and wait for a confirmation call from a nurse to complete their one-time registration.
After registration, a nurse will call the member for assessment to schedule the consultation with one of their doctors. A medical doctor will call the patient for a check-up and give the necessary prescriptions or instructions. Video call via webcam can also be done during medical consultation for cases that need visual assessment such as skin rashes, bruises, etc.
