FAQs

  • Can I only use Bettr for a certain kind of sickness or injury?

    Actually, no. Telehealth is used today to treat everything from the common cold to post-surgical wound care. Everything from migraines to acne to mental health counselling can be treated while using this technology. It’s common today for doctors to use these tools to coordinate patient care, or to use them in their clinics. Learn more about what we can and can't treat.

  • What happens if I need a follow up?

    If you need a follow up, you and the doctor you should discuss this before the consultation ends. The doctor may suggest booking another telehealth appointment or a face to face visit.

  • How can the doctor really know what’s wrong if I don’t see him or her in person?

    The doctor can “see” a patient via a video screen, but in fact, it’s the patient history that provides about 90% of the clinical diagnosis. A virtual consultation can prevent unnecessary trips to a doctor’s or urgent care clinic. Think of these visits like a “virtual house call;” the doctor sees and diagnoses over a phone or computer screen.

  • Can I get a vaccination?

    No, but you can find your nearest clinic that does by visiting our clinic finder.

Testimonials

Sommah, October 2021

First time seeing a Doctor online and absolutely loved it, especially for my son. At our usual Doctors we have to wait at least 2-2.5 hours, here we scheduled our appointment and it was on time. The Doctor that helped us was awesome, straight forward and asked proper questions. He was able to provide us with a prescription and it will be available at our pharmacy, so easy and fast, really appreciated this service.

Brendan, August 2021

My Doctor was booked solid until late next week and then telephone only, so booked with Bettr. Clear and professional visual experience between Lower Hutt and Auckland, $49. How good. They have super-cheap rates if you join. By the time I got to my pharmacy the prescription was waiting.

Maryanne, August 2021

Wow had an awesome experience with the online doctor Antonio, thank you for the consultation. Dr Antonio was very warm and professional in his work. Good to know we can go online to book an appointment to get help without leaving home. Thank you Bettr Online Doctors you are much appreciated.

Viki, September 2021

Awesome! Online doctor service! Dr Kala was kind, patient and listened very carefully to my health concerns and prescribed medications. The fact that I can see a doctor virtually is absolutely perfect. Keep this service going for those that can't make it into a doctors clinics or don't want to, its priceless! Thank you so much!

Tania, November 2021

Awesome appointment this morning, the Doctor was friendly and very involved in our consultation - scheduled appointment was on time & all documents received promptly.

Donna, October 2021

My experience was very good. It is the first time I have used this option but I think it was great to speak to to doctor online and get what I needed. Getting the prescription and being able to send it on to the chemist and pick it up 30 minutes later was great.

Eddie, October 2021

I accidentally found your online doctor service I was absolutely delighted with the help and rapid results what a great service from a hard working team I thank you all for coming to my rescue.

Paratene, July 2021

This was my first time using the service and I found it to be state of the art, futuristic in how we go to the Doctors. It was an extremely user friendly process and their are a highly skilled, dedicated arsenal of Doctors on hand who care for each patient. I was quite daunted at first but having been through first hand, I can see the amazing benefits. Thank you so much team Bettr.

Lee, May 2021

I love how we can see a doctor online and get a prescription. So awesome. I really appreciate it, as I wasn't feeling well enough to go anywhere. But having your doctor online is amazing. Doctor Fazlus is the best. Thanks Bettr.

Tehei, August 2021

Awesome access from our own home. Saves me going into the doctors and also saves me time waiting too. Thank you for this service very convenient for a patient like me and a very prompt response and reminder for your appointment. Thank you so much Doctor Smith you make a difference and you provided care and willingness to help me and my daughter. Thank you Bettr team for this awesome first time experience.

Antoinette, April 2021

THIS IS THE BEST SERVICE! Absolutely love it for so many reasons. Too many to list but mainly because there's no more having to wait or stand to be seen by a nurse and then sometimes wait again to see a doctor. Waiting in the comfort of your own home means so much. Please ensure we NEVER LOSE THIS ONLINE DOCTOR SERVICE.

Anastasia, February 2021

What an awesome experience that was, no 2-4 hour waiting in a room with other sick people & noise. The Doctor provided great care & empathy. The whole process was amazing from the 5 minute notification to waiting in the virtual waiting room & choosing the pharmacy to send prescriptions to, it was a great experience. Thank you

Ringakapo, June 2021

As a first time user using this website it was awesome as having a booked appointment made my day so much easier. As I could do other errands instead of sitting in the Doctor's surgery waiting for a couple of hours to be seen to. I would highly recommend this service if you don't need to see a Doctor in person.

Teresa, July 2021

Had 2 appointments for myself and my daughter and both doctors were absolutely helpful and amazing! Explained everything to them and they straight away gave me what I needed for a prescription. Thank you so much Bettr, will definitely be using you guys again.

Gerrard, March 2021

My experience was a seamless and professional. From online booking to payment. Got my reminder, both text and email. The Doctor was knowledgeable and had a great 'bed side' manner. I got my SMS to select a local pharmacy and got my medical certificate at the end of the consult. Brilliant, thank you.

Molly, August 2020

Just leaving some feedback to let you know the Telehealth appointment was awesome! Being a mum, it can be such a hassle to take my baby with me to my normal GP office! The video call was so handy, I even did it in my dressing gown! My doctor was very thorough and got to know me. I will be recommending it to friends and family!

A'a, February 2021

My appointment using Bettr online consultation was excellent. The Dr was thorough and asked the right questions. I felt heard and taken seriously regarding my symptoms. I am so happy with my consultation and the service is awesome!!

Nadia, October 2020

Fabulous consult listened well to my concerns, awesome Doctor. Bettr is an amazing service that I find really helpful, fast and efficient! It's easy to see a doctor without sitting in a clinic for hours with children! Will definitely be back and will recommend to others.

Aveta, December 2020

I was scared at first but prepared myself 5 mins before my scheduled appointment, I was nervous but my video consult with the doctor went well. It's awesome. Where have you been all my life when I've been waiting in a line. Thank you.
