11 Year NFL Veteran and Co-Founder of Ask The Doctor, Israel Idonije Is Using Tesla's to Deliver Doctors to Your Home

Local Toronto Physicians Are Getting Dropped Off to Patients Houses in Tesla's for Ask The Doctor's In-Home Visit Service

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Ask The Doctor, the platform which connects patients to physicians virtually by email, sms, phone or video chat, earlier this month launched a new in-home visit service for patients whose health concerns can't be solved virtually.

Today the company announced that it will be using a fleet of Tesla's to drop doctors off to patients houses. "We at Ask The Doctor are very forward thinking when it comes to healthcare delivery and thought what better way to show that vision than by having our doctors driven around in the most advanced electric vehicle available today." said Israel Idonije, 11 year NFL veteran and Co-Founder of Ask The Doctor.

"Not only are our patients loving the in-home service, our doctors are loving being dropped off from location to location in a chauffeured driven Tesla," said Dr. Michael Warner, Chief Medical Officer, Ask The Doctor. "This new service we are offering is a great fun way for new/graduating Family and ER docs to provide a much needed service for residents of Ontario."

Ask The Doctors In-Home Visit platform is currently available only through its ATD Works for Employers App in Toronto. Physicians are available seven days a week any time from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., for anything a patient might require during a traditional office visit. Ask The Doctor plans to expand its In-Home visit service to other major North American markets such as Chicago, New York and San Francisco in the next few months.
