The Story of How It Began

Waiting Room

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

In 2019, KonnectMD's founder Jason had a frustrating experience while waiting for nearly 3 hours at an urgent care facility to see a healthcare provider. Along with others in the waiting room, he expressed impatience and frustration over the long wait times and costly fees. This experience sparked the idea for a service that would make non-emergency medical care faster and more affordable. Today, KonnectMD has made this idea a reality, allowing everyone to access medical providers without the need for in-person visits, copays, deductibles, or visit fees.
