In order to appreciate the life-changing magnitude of these elements, it’s critical to understand how 2nd.MD came to be. When Gabi, daughter of 2nd.MD founder Clint Phillips, suffered a stroke shortly after birth, the family faced hurdle after hurdle while trying to get the medical answers they needed.
The family was told Gabi would never walk or talk. They were sent to the wrong specialists. They sat on waitlists for months. They were denied access to speak to a doctor over the phone and were forced to travel to multiple doctor offices across the country. As Clint and his family experienced Gabi’s exacerbating and costly journey through the healthcare system, the idea of 2nd.MD was born — connect people who need it the most with the right doctor quickly, easily and affordably.
In 2011, leading doctors and innovative investors joined forces to make this idea a reality. Today, 2nd.MD is a mission-driven organization dedicated to creating more convenient and compassionate care. Our goal is to connect people with the right doctor quickly, easily and affordably.
