Dr. Richard Honaker Joins YourDoctors.Online as Chief Medical Advisor

New strategy combines free online chat with family doctors, webinars, and a low price membership model to bridge global healthcare gap

TORONTO, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Richard Honaker joins YourDoctors.Online as Chief Medical Advisor to lead the company's large panel of North American doctors and specialists. His appointment early last month was a timely one, as YourDoctors.Online begins new strategy for their women focused online healthcare platform.

As Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Honaker will begin his charge offering free webinars on various medical conditions, such as sexual health, mental health, and medical issues of importance in the present healthcare climate.

"I became the Chief Medical Advisor after working with YourDoctors.Online helping patients with questions," Dr. Honaker said. "I was intrigued to learn of the new and forward thinking direction the company has taken. There is energy to the company and plans that will help a lot of people."

The first webinar will be a discussion on anxiety and depression June 22, 2017. He will present on mental illness and hopes to answer the top questions the company receives via their free doctor chat platform. People can sign up for the webinar and get answers to their medical questions from an actual doctor in lieu of using Google or WebMD.

"We will discuss how to tell if you are clinically depressed or just tired and stressed out," Dr. Honaker explained. "And we will discuss treatment options so that your life and the lives of your loved ones will be more joyful."

Previously noted as one of the best doctors in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Honaker was also named Texas Super Doc by Texas Monthly Magazine. His new position with YourDoctors.Online is also aligned with the new membership the company plans to launch June 22, 2017 as well.

"In an effort to make healthcare easily accessible to everyone, we are excited to have Dr. Honaker leading our new $9.99 monthly, no commitment membership program," Nauman Jaffar, CEO of YourDoctors.Online said. "We want healthcare to be accessible to all, especially busy women who are making 90% of health research and decisions at home for their family. Those in remote areas in North America and globally can also benefit."

Presently, people around the world can chat or email a family doctor, psychologist, dietician, travel doctor for free on the platform's chat system. The new membership model will take that a step further, allowing people to sign up, talk to a doctor, and get a timely assessment covering health and mental health symptoms.

Members also receive consultation on current diagnoses and treatment plans, as well as second opinions for peace of mind. Weekly health trends, and access a variety of other concierge services are also included.

"The interface between doctors and patients will be more affordable and more convenient for those with limited funds and limited time," Dr. Honaker said.

Healthcare has become a very important issue as political climates continue to change. Having doctors available for consult within minutes via your mobile or desktop may bridge the global healthcare gap for those without healthcare or monetary means, or those without easy access to doctors.
