It was great to find a website that allows you to find specialists that doctors recommend. I saw a dermatologist I found through myHealthSpecialist.com and my skin problem has improved immensely. Thank you for making this possible.

The fact the website is based on thousands of doctors recommendations means I trust the information being provided.  Finding a trustworthy specialist is very important for me and my family.

Getting cosmetic surgery isn’t something you talk to a lot of people about, so being able to search privately and see someone trusted by doctors gave me a lot of confidence to go ahead with my breast augmentation and I’m very happy with the results!

I can’t believe this website didn’t exist already!  All the mums at school have been talking about myHealthSpecialist.com, so we used it to find an excellent paediatrician for our own children. It’s a great resource and I’ve told others about it too!

I used myHealthSpecialist.com to find and request an appointment for a knee surgeon for my elderly mother.  He explained the procedure very carefully and following a period of rehabilitation she is now able walk without pain.  We are both happy to have found him.
