The idea for the application came to Ehsan’s mind when his own father was seriously ill and his family faced difficulties locating good consultants and making appointments.

He further added,
The traffic for a few doctors is in the hundreds whereas other foreign qualified and young doctors have no patients, so through this application we have been trying to divert patients to those doctors to reduce the long queue of up to five months,
