Our vision: Power to the patient!
As consumers, we are better informed now than we ever have been. Thanks to the internet, an entire world of knowledge and opportunities has opened to us. We have more choices than we ever dreamed possible. So is it not logical that we should expect the same when it comes to our health? At Dokteronline.com, we think it is. That is why we have been fighting since 2003 to give patients a bigger say in the care they receive.
Dokteronline.com is an information website as well as online consumer service. Dokteronline.com itself does not offer products, but ensures safe, fast and discrete genuine products delivered by licensed and regulated independent pharmacies. If needed, we can also arrange for consultation with real licensed and registered EU-doctors. Therefore, Dokteronline.com offers an all inclusive, one-stop (eHealth) service and is not an online doctor, online pharmacy or internet pharmacy. Easy, safe, fast and discrete!
If you wish to obtain a certain treatment with medication, you can buy these products at your own pharmacy or instruct us to arrange this in your name with a registered EU pharmacy. When necessary and/or desired, we also arrange a consultation for you with a registered EU doctor. You pay us one fee for our service, any possible products from a pharmacy and/or any possible consultation with a doctor. We will arrange the rest!
Because it is your health which is at stake, we believe that you should have the freedom to make decisions about your own body. Given the correct information and personal advice, it is up to you to choose how you are treated.
Dokteronline.com ensures you do not have to go to a pharmacy or drugstore yourself to buy products. We do not work with pharmacies but we have agreements with various (regulated) independent pharmacies that in principle accept customers from us. The same goes for doctors: we do not work with doctors but we have agreements with regulated independent doctors that in principle provide customers from us with a consultation. You pay Dokteronline.com and we pay the pharmacy and doctor (if necessary).
Driven by the deeply held belief that people should be free to make their own choices when it comes to healthcare, we launched the website Onlinedokter.com to enable customers to obtain a doctor’s prescription for an effective dosage of the natural sleep hormone melatonin with a pharmacy. At that time, a prescription was required for dosages higher than 0.1 mg per tablet in the Netherlands.
In 2004 it was decided to expand our services. The website got a new name and brand Dokteronline.com and services were expanded to so-called lifestyle medicines, which may not be available under national health schemes. In many cases these are used to treat conditions that patients are reluctant to discuss with their own General practitioner (GP). This new model proved a huge success.
Europe’s largest online
Today, Dokteronline.com is available in 7 languages and, with more 167,000 customers, is one of Europe’s largest online health websites.
Our range of health related information is now more diverse than ever and is constantly being expanded with new treatments and lifestyle products. We have agreements with 11 independent doctors and 8 pharmacies in the UK, Germany and Denmark. We also have agreements with a number of medical portals and actively sponsor health-related projects which reflect our belief that people should be free to make their own choices.
Rebel of Health
Although Dokteronline.com was long known as “the Rebel of Health”, and in the past was frequently attacked and criticised, from the day we launched we have also been fortunate in receiving many positive testimonials from satisfied customers. They are people who, for a variety of reasons, cannot or do not want to visit their own General practitioner (GP). Or whose busy lives mean that they prefer to arrange their medical affairs online. Exactly the kind of people we put first. We work closely with our customers to meet their health needs as effectively as possible. Now and in the future.
Our aim is to keep expanding Dokteronline.com throughout Europe, and to further broaden the range of services we provide.
Dokteronline.com began with a dream. A dream we still cherish: we want to enable people to take control of their own bodies and the medical treatments they receive. And there can be no doubt, Dokteronline.com is here to stay. With so many people needing our services, and eHealth in general gaining in importance, we intend to satisfy all their health and lifestyle requirements.
Medicines for all
In many smaller European countries, fewer and fewer medicines are available because the local market is no longer profitable for drug companies. Dokteronline.com provides the ideal solution to this problem. The pharmacies that we have access to are based in the UK, Germany and Denmark, so we ensure that products stay available for everyone in Europe.
As well as continuing to roll out Dokteronline.com across Europe, we also plan to extend our the range of services. Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete health solution, with 24/7 service and information for everyone.
