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.

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.

A fantastic way to get medical advice when you are unable to see someone in person. The app is so simple to use. Highly recommend. I am not a tech savvy person but the doctor was kind enough to patiently walk me through every step of the process. Thank you.

This app is amazing! The doctor was so professional. I just waited 1-2 mins to get served! I highly recommend this app.

The service has been amazing for our family. The doctors are kind, thorough, and ask all the right questions. As a busy family of five, this app has been a life saver

— App store review

Super impressed with this service. Without a family doctor, it’s easy to feel alone with no care. Very thankful to have options.

— Google Play Store User

So fast and efficient. A process that would have ordinarily involved a referral and a six months wait was completed in less than 72 hours. Wholeheartedly recommend Maple.

At 1:30 am, I realized I had a UTI and was desperate for help. I went online and within ten minutes, I had my prescription faxed to my pharmacy. This service gave me peace of mind.
