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 most efficient and professional service ever. In less than an hour I was paired with a dermatologist who prescribed the medication required. A thorough consult and knowledgeable MD who made everything easy. My pharmacy had the prescription faxed in no time. I definitely see myself using the service in the future.

This was the best thing i've ever come across. I downloaded the app and one hour later had completed an appointment with a dermatologist who then faxed over 2 prescriptions to my pharmacy. I have been dealing with a terrible rash on my face since March with no hope in sight of getting into a dermatologist. When I found this app I was skeptical, but can honestly say it has saved my face, I am already seeing an improvement after 1 week.

Possibly the easiest way to meet a Dermatologist!

After getting a referral from our family doctor to see a dermatologist we were still waiting after 5 months. In frustration, I turned to the internet to look for options and stumbled across GetMaple. Wow…..saw the dermatologist within 24h and everything since has been very smooth.

— Dave T.

Loved that I could speak to a doctor within 24hours. The dermatologist was quick, knowledgeable and listened to my concerns! Will definitely be using again!

— Jessica N.

Within 4 hours, I was connected to a dermatologist in Toronto who quickly diagnosed and prescribed a combination treatment. My prescription was ready within one hour for pickup.

— DB

The whole experience has been so quick and easy! I was told it would be 9+ months to see a dermatologist in person. With this service, I was able to speak with one in less than 24hrs and I already have been sent the prescription I need.

— Emma S.

We followed their sleep advice yesterday and our baby Dia had a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks.

— Anna

I've been watching Koble sessions while I pump at night. It makes pumping way better.

— Andrea

The best part of Koble for my partner and I was to connect with their sleep coach expert Aidan and her personalized advice was great! Now our baby sleeps much better, as do we!
