Heal has secured $5 million in seed funding from Slow Ventures, March Capital, Pritzker Capital, and numerous renowned angels, including Qualcomm Executive Chairman – Dr. Paul Jacobs, founder of Overbrook Entertainment – James Lassiter, founder of Clarity Partners – Stephen Rader, Jamie McCourt, Lionel Richie, and former President of Univision – Mike Wortsman.

“I created Heal to make life easier for busy parents and adults to get world-class primary care in the comfort, convenience and privacy of their home,” said Dr. Renee Dua, founder of Heal. “Our vision is to transform primary care into a one-stop Primary Health Solution, where patients can call on Heal at a moment’s notice not only for everything a traditional doctor’s visit can provide, but also for cutting-edge services and tools that put patients in control of their health like never before.”
Unlike traditional doctor visits, Heal offers unhurried care with doctors spending as much time as needed with each patient. Doctors are available in Los Angeles and San Francisco any time 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week for anything a patient might require during a traditional office visit, including an annual physical, blood tests, specialist recommendations, prescription delivery and more. A new advanced booking option allows patients to book a doctor for the next day after hours.
The company delivers doctor’s visits to a patient’s home or office in under an hour for $99.Doctors on Heal use an array of modern medical technologies, including an AliveCor ECG to deliver near-instant heart health analysis, CellScope otoscope to record HD-quality video inside a patient’s ear, and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to give patients easy access to their medical history.
Before this seed round, Heal has raised money from Qualcomm Executive Chairman Dr. Paul Jacobs, Jamie McCourt and Grammy and Oscar winner Lionel Richie.
