Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about mental illness?

Yes. In most cases, a Maple doctor can diagnose mental illnesses online by asking about your symptoms and condition. Once you describe your symptoms to the doctor, they will be able to diagnose, prescribe appropriate medication, and recommend an appropriate course of action. If the doctor suspects you have a more serious problem, they may suggest you go to a clinic for a thorough physical examination.

Can I get a prescription on Maple?

Yes, our physicians can prescribe medications online during your consultation. Once you accept a prescription, you’ll have the option to pick it up from any pharmacy or we’ll deliver it right to your door at no additional cost.
