The nodMD Story

Until three years ago, telemedicine was little more than a “buzz-word” to me.  However, as an independent infectious disease MD, my ongoing frustration of patients waiting 4-6 weeks to get an appointment with me caused me to take a second-look at “telemedicine.” Could telemedicine help patients achieve faster access to specialty physicians, like me? And could telemedicine help me see more patients and generate greater income for my practice?

To my pleasure, I found out the answer is YES! 

After discovering many healthcare entities (post-acutes, rural hospitals, HHA, PCPs, etc.) had provider gaps and needed timely access to specialists, in 2018 I founded nodMD to offer a complete menu of telemedicine benefits to the two-thirds of specialist physicians who are independent (i.e. not affiliated with a hospital system). nodMD is the ONLY company focused exclusively on helping 250,000 independent specialists unleash the full potential of telemedicine for their practice by connecting with millions of patients needing specialist care.

Our digital health platform offers a full complement of telemedicine services—HIPAA compliant video, referral generation, referral management, “Find-a-Doc” online directories, mHealth apps and remote patient monitoring (coming soon).

By leveraging technology, nodMD provides facilities, specialists and patients with timely access to 250,000 independent specialty physicians.

Why “nod?”

  • n.o.d. is our acronym for “network of doctors”
  • People nod when they feel connected and understood.  
  • When a client or patient speaks, we nod our head to confirm we are listening.
  • nod is our virtual network of doctors committed to listening to their patients to provide high-quality care.
