Our Medical Review Team

We take medical review seriously

PlushCare allows anyone to see a doctor online, get diagnosed and prescribed medication for almost anything. We also have a robust blog that sees millions of visitors per month. In order to ensure you’re reading only the best content — the most medically accurate and trustworthy advice — we have members of our clinician network review nearly every article on the blog. 

We strive to be your most trusted ally in your pursuit of health and well-being. As such, PlushCare’s physicians, PhDs, nurses and public health experts review blog posts to ensure that the information you receive is accurate, evidence-based, current and trustworthy. Blog content is updated and improved as often as possible. If ever you see content that is inaccurate or needs adjustment, please email us at [email protected]
