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!

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
Super impressed with this service. Without a family doctor, it’s easy to feel alone with no care. Very thankful to have options.
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.
Maple was there for me when other doctors couldn't be. So convenient. Any time, any day. I am grateful for this service.
We needed to see a doctor over the weekend as our pediatrician was not available. Logging into Maple and choosing from a selection of specialties was quick and easy. Excellent service!
Very easy to navigate Maple. It’s secure and trusted. Maple has truly gone above and beyond with their app. Highly recommended.
Amazing service! It was great being able to connect with a doctor from the comfort of home late at night.
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.
With my asthma flare-up, I needed a specialist and found one here. The doctor improved my treatment and explained everything in a very clear way.
