Company History

AskTheDoctor was conceived in 2006 by two entrepreneurs from Winnipeg, Canada, Prakash Chand and Dr. Suneel Sharman. They obtained the domain AskTheDoctor.ca and began to receive thousands of unsolicited health-related questions. A medical team began to answer these questions and it became clear that AskTheDoctor was fulfilling a previously unmet health care need.
In January 2010 a partnership was created with Dr. Patrick Golden of Fresno, California and AskTheDoctor.com was born. In 2011, AskTheDoctor.com became an official partner of the National Institute of Health, publishers of PubMed. Our library of over 5 million questions and answers has been used by the NIH for research purposes. Today, AskTheDoctor.com is the most trusted and popular resource for personalized medical information, servicing patients from nearly every country around the world.
