Virtual Consultations: Convenience and Accessibility with Sniffle

In today’s fast-paced world, finding time for in-person medical appointments can be a challenge. That’s where virtual consultations with Sniffle come to the rescue.

Does this sound familiar? Get the kids ready for school, walk the dog, drive 30 minutes to work, prepare for the pitch, nail the pitch, start feeling sick, schedule a last-minute appointment with a doctor, go to their office, wait 30 minutes in the waiting room, fill out the paperwork, see the doctor for 10 minutes, get medicine, drive to pick up the kids from school, drive home, prepare dinner, help the kids with homework, start working from home after the kids go to bed, get ready for bed, sleep, wake up—and repeat.

It’s fair to say that most of your patients lead busy lives. When they leave your office, they become someone’s mom, boss, employee, soccer coach, financial advisor—the list goes on! These busy schedules barely allow patients to breathe, yet we expect them to take hours out of their day to visit the clinic. The truth is, many of your patients will avoid going to your practice and try to let an illness run its course. But, unfortunately, ignoring symptoms can complicate simple conditions and potentially make them contagious to others.

Patients would not have to choose whether to continue with their daily activities or visit your office in a perfect world with virtual consultations.  Well, Sniffle gets us closer to that “perfect world.” Do patients want to visit in person for simple, routine conditions like cough, pink eye, or a urinary tract infection? No, they don’t!

More and more patients are turning to remote services, such as Sniffle. We make it easier for patients to get better, faster, without having to take valuable time out of their busy schedules to visit a provider in person. Patients are also happy because they can choose their provider through the app (this could be you).

Providers also prefer Sniffle. We make it easier for you to see more patients while reducing paperwork and administrative hassles (like setting up appointments)! Sniffle brings more patients into your practice while making the process more efficient. You can set your fees (the app itself is free), so by seeing more patients via Sniffle, you are bringing more money into your practice!

It’s effortless to join, so when a patient asks, “Are you on Sniffle?” you can say, yes, I am!
