In 2018, Dr. Dorsha, a practicing Emergency Medicine Physician realized many patients coming to the ER were frustrated that they had extremely long waits and were even more frustrated with the bill that was usually hundreds of dollars.  She was concerned that many nights the ER was clogged with patients that could have had their condition treated from home using their cell phone, tablet or laptop by using telemedicine.


Dr. Dorsha is the founder of myURGENCYMD, a telemedicine company created to meet the growing need for individuals needing proper access to healthcare and to relieve concerns and treat illnesses that are usually urgencies not emergencies.  She has worked diligently to educate the general population on how to use the modern concept of telemedicine thereby giving individuals the opportunity to receive the medical answers they seek in the privacy of their own home.
