My colleagues and I were managing an acutely ill child who was actually followed by colleagues at another facility. Taking a detailed history was not possible for various reasons. The availability of DocFax and secure, HIPAA-compliant access on my mobile phone helped me coordinate appropriate care of my patient.

I was struggling with a complex patient with a very rare condition -- sclerosing mesenteritis. I easily found an article on Doximity authored on that topic by an expert and was able to contact the author. He told me about a medicine that he was trying out on his patient and it just all worked out. Thanks Doximity!

We were looking for a very specific neurosurgeon in an unfamiliar part of town. After a few guesses, I was able to find the contact faster than on google or any search!

As a family medicine physician, I receive a lot of recruiting emails. Shortly after joining I received a Doximity message about a locum tenens opportunity in my hometown. For the first time, a recruiting service provided a match that made sense for me. I'm not sure how I would have found this opportunity had it not been for Doximity.
Family Medicine Physician Carolinas HealthCare System
One of my patients was bitten by a Macaque monkey, which is infected with a virus that can produce a lethal encephalitis in humans. Worldwide, there are only a dozen or so experts on this zoonosis, but Doximity allowed me to quickly contact authors of key publications that present information critical to treating this disease. The patient did fine - so did the monkey. Doximity provided me with easy access to experts!
