Once you confirm the same, you will be required to make the requisite payment. Once your payment is successfully made, your consultation will be booked.

This can continue till a suitable time for video/phone calling is amicably reached between you and the Provider.
Once the payment for consultation is made, a chat window will be enabled between you and the particular doctor / medical practitioner / physician, wherein summary notes can be shared and reports can be uploaded. The concerned doctor / medical practitioner / physician can send his/her signed prescription through the said chat window.
