Maple vs. Rocket Doctor

With Maple you can instantly connect with Canadian-licensed doctors for medical care from your phone, tablet, or computer any time, anywhere, 24/7 or by appointment.

Rocket Doctor is an online service that provides consultations with Canadian doctors.


Here’s how our doctors can help you

Secure text chat, audio and video — you choose

With Maple, you get to choose how you want to interact with the healthcare provider from your phone, tablet, or computer.

If you’re in BC and you have a BC Services Card, you can request a video consultation at no charge to you. Learn more.

If you’re not a BC resident, and if a video consultation is required for your case, the doctor will let you know ahead of time, and you can choose whether to continue or not.

Rocket Doctor has cared for over 40,000 patients

This means less experience than a virtual care app like Maple, which has cared for over 200,000 patients. 

Founded in 2020

A considerably newer option for virtual care, Rocket Doctor hasn’t been operating for as long as other virtual care apps like Maple. 

Comparatively less healthcare providers

Unlike Maple’s large network of 1500+ healthcare providers, Rocket Doctor offers care from over 130 healthcare providers.

You might not be able to speak to the type of healthcare provider you need.

Legitimate and just as described, with fabulous doctors. Totally fills the late-night worry gap!

Not having to endure a long wait at a walk in clinic is fabulous. Especially since I have twin pre-schoolers to contend with.

The service is so quick and professional and saves hours spent in a walk-in-clinic. This is a game changer for busy moms and I recommend it to everyone!

Instead of my husband having to drag both kids to the hospital or walk in alone he was able to see a doctor right away and get a prescription faxed to our local pharmacy.

Our family has used this service twice so far and it has been amazing. Both doctors were friendly, compassionate and you never feel rushed.

Was concerned I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor without an appointment. I installed the Maple app, spoke to a doctor and had my prescription in under 30 min.

I used Maple for the first time today. It was quick and easy, took less than ten minutes including connecting time and the doctor was professional and friendly.
