3. Get a diagnosis or prescription

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

We asked Dr. Brooks some questions

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

I have experience in family, addiction, cannabinoid, and sleep medicine. I also enjoy providing continuing medical education on cannabinoid medicine. I joined Maple because I enjoy practicing virtual medicine safely and effectively to a wide range of patients.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

My father passed away at a young age from cardiovascular disease. That’s when I first became inspired to practice in the areas of lifestyle and preventative medicine. I have also completed a Master of Social Work program which helps me connect to patients in a variety of ways.

What do you love the most about practising medicine?

I love everything about practising medicine. The most exciting part for me is playing a role in diagnosing and treating patients with complex conditions. My cannabinoid medicine practice is most rewarding in this regard.

What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?

My favourite part of practising on Maple is not knowing what challenge I’ll be helping a patient with next. I also enjoy that patients can be diagnosed and subsequently treated without seeing a physician in person during a pandemic.

What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?

The most challenging aspects of working in medicine have always been two fold. First, working for the government within a limited budget is always a challenge. Second, research never seems to be fast enough when it comes to approving new treatments.

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

I have briefly considered being a lawyer, but I still don’t wish to do anything else!

Is there an individual in the medical community that you find most inspiring?

I find all of my colleagues inspiring in different ways. I particularly enjoy being part of chat groups with other female physicians. We share our personal experiences and brainstorm together on complex medical issues for our patients.

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

Simply put, there is no shortcut to healthy living. Eating healthy and exercising daily are what keep my patients and I healthy.

What do you do in your spare time?

I love spending time with my two teenage children, and with my extended family. I enjoy my daily yoga practice which grounds me physically, mentally and spiritually. International traveling and teaching have always been passions of mine.

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.

If it wasn't for this service, I would be clogging up the emergency rooms for a prescription refill. A much needed service in my area.
