How Maple works.

1. Describe your symptoms through our app

Open the app and click the "See the doctor" button. One of our doctors will review your request and respond in minutes.

2. Chat with a doctor

Next, you'll be connected to the doctor. You can have your consultation by text, video or audio chat in the Maple app.

3. Get a diagnosis or prescription

Doctors can diagnose and provide prescriptions as necessary during your consultation.

We asked Dr. Tanner some questions

Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?

I was an award-winning graduate of The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I joined Maple to be able to offer care to people who might not otherwise have access. My goal is to help my patients find a state of wellness through improving their physical health

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I enjoy living an active lifestyle, but unfortunately I’ve had to undergo three knee surgeries. Still, I didn’t want to let my surgeries stop me. I travelled the world and spent many hours researching different healthcare models. These experiences inspired me to make it my mission in life to help others. I don’t just treat conditions — I treat people.

What do you love the most about practising medicine?

I love taking my patients from a place of fatigue and frustration to a place of freedom. There are no words to describe the feeling of helping my patients to not only live, but to live healthier and happier lives. To succeed at anything in life, the one thing we need is our health. I believe that in order to feel fulfilled, we need to optimize our health and performance.

What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?

Maple is a forward-thinking platform. To be a part of this movement in healthcare is very exciting. People living in condos or the countryside can get access to healthcare. I have the opportunity to help people across the province break down obstacles and create healthy lifestyle patterns.

If you could choose any other career, what would it be?

Oh my, I wish I had many lives to satisfy my inquisitive mind. Besides being a full-time parent, I would love to be a researcher, a graphic designer, a veterinarian, an athletic coach, and of course – an Olympian!

Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?

I am a chocolate lover. To help my body stabilize its blood sugar levels, I always eat a square of dark chocolate with a handful of nuts after lunch. Dee-lish!

What do you do in your spare time?

I am a busy lady and I love it that way. I enjoy playing with my three kids, camping, skiing, running, and pretty much anything that gets me out in the sunshine!

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.
