The app is so interactive and user-friendly. What makes it even better is the signs and symptoms checker. The app gives you an option to explicitly point out where for instance, your pain is emanating from.

I initially gave a negative review but my issue was addressed in less than an hour. The doctor I video called was actually pretty nice. I was also scared to go hospital but he assured me I would be okay. He made the necessary recommendation and I've received my diagnosis. At least I can get treatment early enough. I gave a 4 star rating coz we had a few connection issues. Maybe the app can improve with time.

I tried making payment for consultation. I have sufficient balance in my M-pesa account. However, I am not getting the prompt on M-pesa to complete the transaction. I had to exit without help. It would be helpful if you had a Paybill or Till number to use in case the prompt fails to complete the transaction.
