Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my gastritis?
Yes. In some cases, a doctor on Maple can diagnose gastritis online by asking about your symptoms and ordering lab tests. They can also help you manage a previously diagnosed case of chronic gastritis. They can write necessary prescriptions, order tests, and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. 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 to have it delivered right to your door at no additional cost.

What is gastritis?
Gastritis is an inflammation of the protective lining of the stomach. It can be acute (sudden and severe) or chronic (long-term inflammation). It can be caused by the same bacteria that causes ulcers, bile reflux, regular use of certain pain relievers such as aspirin or NSAIDS (e.g. Advil/Ibuprofen, Naproxen), and drinking too much alcohol.
What are the symptoms of gastritis?
Gastritis symptoms include:
- Nausea or recurrent upset stomach
- Bloating and abdominal pain
- Burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach or chest between meals
- Loss of appetite
How is gastritis treated?
Treatment for gastritis depends on its cause. If yours is caused by medication or alcohol, avoiding those substances may be enough to relieve the symptoms. Antibiotics can be used if bacteria is the cause. Proton pump inhibitors and other acid-reducing medications can help as well. The doctor will be able to advise you on the right course of treatment.

Saves a lot of time compared to sitting in a doctor's office!
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.
LOVE This service. Not only do you have a doctor within seconds but they are professional and knowledgable.
Absolutely blown away. It was SO easy to use. No wait time getting connected with a doctor. Getting the prescription faxed to the pharmacy made it a seamless process.
