We asked Dr. Nastis some questions
Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?
I completed my schooling at Western University, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in physiology and a doctorate in medicine. I have a strong interest in preventive care, minor procedures, and virtual medicine. That’s why I joined the Maple team.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
My interest in the science of the human body, along with my desire to help others, led me to enter the world of healthcare. The ability to help care for a person’s health in a comprehensive manner from birth to death was what inspired me to pursue a career in family medicine.
What do you love the most about practising medicine?
Being a medical professional means you will be a lifelong learner. The medical field constantly evolves with new information and developments. As the daughter of an elementary school teacher, I have always embraced the learning process. Having a job where I can learn something new everyday is an incredible thing to experience.
What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?
My favourite part is the ability to hone my virtual care skills on a regular basis. At the same time, I can maintain flexibility with my schedule. I run a busy family medicine practice and also perform house visits to a retirement home. So, it’s extremely helpful to have the flexibility to decide when I am available to see patients on the Maple platform.
Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?
When it comes to weight loss and maintenance, avoid fad diets or work out plans. The most effective diet and exercise tactics are not hacks. They’re simply sustainable and reasonable meals and workouts that you can incorporate into your daily lifestyle. As Michael Pollan simply put it: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
What do you do in your spare time?
I love being physically active. I work out at least five times a week, whether it’s a home workout, an organized sport, or just running around with my dog. I’m also an avid traveller and I love to cook. My ultimate trips involve finding the best food tours while on vacation!

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.
