Doocle is an innovative healthcare platform that allows you to connect with a medical professional of your choice to securely discuss your medical issues via a private video consultation at a time to suit you.
Doocle is packed with unique features not found on other telemedicine platforms.
For starters, Doocle is not limited to General Practitioners but aims to have the whole spectrum of medical professionals available to our clients.
Doocle also allows patients to upload their scans (x-rays, MRI’s etc) for the Doocle medical professional to collaboratively review with the patient to help them understand what their scan is showing and the health implications.
Doocle doctors host webinars which users may be interested in joining. Doocle webinars can be interactive, allowing the audience to ask questions and be more than just observers.
All medical professionals who have signed up to Doocle will have had to go through our stringent verification process, which ensures only the most qualified and experienced professionals are available for a consultation on the Doocle platform.
Doocle is for any patient who may wish to get a second opinion, or discuss their health with an expert in their field.

You could have a consultation immediately – it all depends on the availability of your chosen Doocle doctor.
There are three options available when you go to book a consultation:
1) Instant Appointment
This Doocle medical professional is signed into Doocle right now and is available to speak with you instantly.
2) Schedule Appointment
The Doocle medical professional lists their availability - you can see their available slots and book your consultation in any available slot now and in the future.
3) Request Appointment
If you do not see any slots available but wish to speak with a particular Doocle medical professional, you can request an appointment, stating your availability, and the Doocle medical professional will reply to try and arrange an appointment. Note that it may not always be possible to accommodate your request.
You may be asked, or you may request, if you wish your regular practitioner to know the details of your Doocle consultation.
If you wish – a paper summary of your consultation will be made available to your regular doctor/practitioner, sent from your Doocle medical professional.

On your Doocle Dashboard, navigate to Scans & X-rays.
On here you will find an Add/Delete tab. Simply click this, fill in the form and attach your scans for upload.
Files uploaded need to be in a DICOM format. If you have an encrypted CD you may not be able to upload DICOM files, and may choose to upload relevant images (eg screenshots). Note that whether you upload DICOM files or screenshots, these images are not of diagnostic quality and will serve only to facilitate your consultation.
If you have any materials, like scans or x-rays, which may be useful in your consultation, you are advised to upload them ahead of your consultation.
If you have any friends or family you would like to invite to the consultation, we recommend adding them to your approved list of invitees ahead of your consultation.
We recommend using the Doocle Diagnostics tool to ensure your device is compatible with Doocle ahead of your consultation.
Around the time of your consultation, you will receive an email invitation, or if you are signed into Doocle, you will be able to enter the consultation via the Doocle Dashboard.
You will then go through the Doocle Diagnostic tool to confirm your device is ready for the consultation. You may then join a waiting room if the medical professional is already with a client.
When the Doocle medical professional is ready for your consultation, you will both enter the consultation screen.
If the consultation is not working well, it is most likely due to a connection issue. Try connecting to a stronger/faster network.
You can disconnect from your consultation and reconnect at any point during your booked slot to resume your consultation.
The chat feature allows you to type messages to each other (rather than speaking) and can be useful when connection is poor or you need something spelled out.
Simply begin typing in the chat box and hit enter to send the message to the other parties on the consultation.
No, we do not record or store your video consultation.
All video consultations are encrypted however, no matter the endpoint (web or mobile) or the session type (1-to-1 or multiparty).
