Here’s some of the great things our patients have to say about our clinicians

“Each step was easy, seamless and each health professional was caring, considerate and extremely helpful. To have a referral, lab work and results all in 3 days is quite awesome.”

“Trying to talk to a medical professional during Covid-19 was a daunting idea until I remembered I have Akira through my employer! This was safe, fast, easy and effective. Will be using this even after the pandemic is over.”

“Thank you so much. You have no idea how happy I am to have this service. It's extremely convenient and your comments and suggestions are above and beyond what I receive outside of this. Thank you.”

“Amazing staff that take the time to understand their patient and makes you feel as though you're not a number.”

“My experience using Akira was awesome. Didn't have to leave the house and the practitioner was empathetic, knowledgeable and gave me some great follow up steps.”

“This app is amazing. I was able to renew my prescription during the COVID 19 crisis without having to go to a clinic. This frees up clinics for those in need and keeps us safe if still healthy. This also saved me likely hours of missed work and waiting. The app is user friendly and so efficient. Grateful!”
