We are Impatient

Expert answers to your medical questions. In 2 minutes or less

Why build another health website? The internet is already full of medical advice, health tips, studies, and listicles about the 46 life-changing benefits of the latest fad diet. And that’s the problem.

The way people look for health information online today is fundamentally broken

WebMD, Reddit, Quora, hospital websites, and thousands of health “experts” have made it impossible to find accurate, helpful, answers to simple medical questions online (you know…from real “doctors”). And if you do manage to punch through the noise to an actual peer-reviewed study, you need a Ph.D. in molecular biology to read the 96-page paper. If it’s not hidden behind a $40 paywall.

It shouldn’t be this hard to find straight answers to your important medical questions. Especially not when you have a world of information at your fingertips. Now, it doesn’t have to be.

We are Impatient for real answers
