Pager has doctors in SF & NY and they make same-day house calls!
If I ever find myself in a situation like that nightmare-experience of being uninsured and needing immediate treatment for my asthma, Pager is the first place I’ll look! Of course, even now that I am insured, there are still plenty of reasons for me to use Pager, instead. All of their doctors are ACTIVELY practicing emergency room physicians. Just think about that for a moment….
You get an Emergency Room Physician with IN-HOME convenience, at a fraction of the price! What is your co-payment for an emergency room visit? Chances are, they are the same or more than a visit from a Pager doctor.
That’s amazing! I was so impressed (and confused, to tell you the truth) that I couldn’t help but to ask Doctor Doney WHY he was sitting in my living room. I asked the hard question. I thought… he must make so much more money in the Emergency Room, how could doing this be worth it for him?
His whole face lit up. He immediately began sharing his excitement about what Pager is doing and what an honor it is for him to help transform healthcare! He explained the advantages a physician has to be able to see a patient in their natural environment, sit down and delve into a conversation that just isn’t feasible in an emergency room environment. I was surprised to learn that how many services are offered by Pager.
I also believe that Pager was born from and lives for improving health care! There was such a sincere passion when Dr. Doney talked about his affiliation with Pager. He believes in what they are doing and wants to be a part of it, because he wants to make a difference. Which, when we think about it, is why most doctors begin practicing medicine in the first place, right? Dr. Doney’s passion for better, more easily accessible healthcare was contagious.

The Pager app is free to download and easy to use. The response is quick and the app allows you to stay connected to your doctor from the time the service request is made, through the time the doctor arrives at your home, office, or wherever you are. Prior to coming to your locations, the doctor will access your situation through the app and/or on the phone ensure that a personal visit is the right medical decision for your situation. The doctor stays in contact until s/he arrives at your location. This is important, because your situation could change.
