We asked Dr. Talwar some questions
Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?
I completed my training in Michigan, and am a both Canadian and American board certified family physician. I am also certified in cosmetic medicine. I joined Maple because of my passion for telemedicine, as I believe virtual healthcare is the future. Diversity in medicine is also a passion of mine. I chose family medicine as my speciality as I enjoy the continuity with patients, and the variety this field offers.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
I was inspired by my passion for helping others, and curiosity about how the body works. My interest in healthcare began with volunteering in nursing homes and hospitals, which then continued to research in cardiology labs. The evolution of medicine over time has always been interesting to me.
What do you love the most about practising medicine?
The best part about medicine is the gratification when your patients feel better. With whatever type of medicine, providing a positive change in someone’s physical or mental health brings an irreplaceable feeling.
What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?
Maple offers efficient, easy access to healthcare. I love the convenience and simplicity behind Maple’s system. The evolution of virtual medicine has been fascinating to me, and Maple is an excellent example of how well it can work.
What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?
The most challenging part of medicine for me is to share difficult news with patients, especially those I have established strong relationships with. We all are human, and it can be difficult to hide emotions.
If you could choose any other career, what would it be?
Medicine will always be my career of choice. Given my passion for skincare, dermatology would be my next choice of speciality.
What do you do in your spare time?
When I am not practising medicine I enjoy yoga, beaches, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.

A fantastic way to get medical advice when you are unable to see someone in person. The app is so simple to use. Highly recommend. I am not a tech savvy person but the doctor was kind enough to patiently walk me through every step of the process. Thank you.
This app is amazing! The doctor was so professional. I just waited 1-2 mins to get served! I highly recommend this app.
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.
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!
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.
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.
We followed their sleep advice yesterday and our baby Dia had a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks.
