“Thankful for the wonderful service provided by Durham Doctors.. we’ve needed them twice in the last few months & have been more then happy with the kind and compassionate doctors who answered our call for assistance. Would not hesitate to recommend this service!”

“Tried this service for the first time today for my youngest. Couldn't of been happier with the service. Great communication leading up to the visit. Thorough but quick assessment of the baby with a good discussion of findings and the plan of care. I will definitely do it again. Because who can honestly say they enjoy taking their kids to the walk in clinic...?”

“Excellent service and very professional. When you are already feeling ill, sitting in a crowded urgent care seems daunting. Having the doctor in our home was convenient. I would highly recommend Durham Doctors.”

“This is the best service for families in the Durham region. We have two young kids and having a doctor come to the door has been an unbelievable service for our family. All of the doctors have been polite, knowledgeable and caring. We cannot recommend this service enough! Thank you for taking care of our kids!“

“The doctor's we have had have always been extremely professional and courteous. Having the service is fantastic with multiple children at home, not having to wait in a waiting room and having the comfort of your own home is such a value!”

“Durham Doctors was amazing today! A blister which quickly turned painful and infected had me worried tonight and with two small kids at home, unable to get to the ER. Durham Doctors were able to squeeze me in tonight, have me checked out and with prescription in hand within less than an hour! They truly helped and brought some peace of mind!”
- Trish, 2018
We have used Durham Doctors many times for our toddler and newborn and have had AMAZING experiences every time. All of the doctors are great and the convenience cannot be beat... especially with kids. I recommend it to all my friends with kids. We are so lucky to have this free service available to us.

“So convenient! The doctor came today (I called yesterday around dinner) and I can tell you, waiting on my own couch was so much more comfortable than having to sit on those cold chairs surrounded by other sick and miserable people!”
