What if I really liked the last doctor I talked to, can I request them again?

No, unfortunately, you cannot request a particular doctor at this time. myURGENCYMD is designed to support your current relationship with your existing doctor and is therefore not a means of establishing an exclusive relationship with one of our doctors. Although we’re sure they would love the compliment, please know that all of myURGENCYMD’s physicians are highly qualified and go through rigorous training and credentialing. We have one of the largest physician networks of telehealth providers who are board-certified, state-licensed doctors. In order for us to continue to provide you with quick and efficient service, your consultation requests go into a queue and the first available physician licensed in your state will accept and process the consultation.
