The nodMD Difference

No driving. No traffic. No waiting rooms. Appointments times fitting your schedule. Timely access to quality specialists.

New Patients:


nodMD is one of the largest communities of independent specialists offering virtual visits for patients. In 2020 a record 400 million telemedicine visits took place in the U.S.–mostly with primary care. With nodMD, when a primary care physician gives you a referral to see a specialist physician, you can now see that specialist virtually.

Virtual visits – or telemedicine – enable providers to use online (video) chats to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients without geographic limits in all settings: at home, work, assisted living, group home, skilled nursing or rural medical centers. Telemedicine visits are easy to navigate and we have great training materials to answer any questions.  

A virtual visit is much like a regular doctor’s office visit except that instead of a waiting room full of people and being left alone in an exam room, you get to see a highly-qualified specialist from the comfort of your current location. Presently, we are able to handle virtual visits for the following health conditions:

There are 250,000 independent specialists in the U.S across 20+ specialties. Due to a shortage of specialists in America (which is projected to get worse the next 10 years), wait times to see a specialist can exceed 32 days. 

The faster a patient sees a doctor, the sooner healing can begin. Our mission is provide patients with timely access to a specialist.  During the past year, our specialists saw patients 5x faster than the national average.

Whether you seek a second opinion on a diagnosis or you’ve been referred to a specialist, we can help.
