About First Opinion

First Opinion offers a way to text a doctor 24 hours a day to ask health-related questions and get expert guidance in determining whether a trip to the doctor's office is necessary. Through the app, each user gets matched one-to-one with a single doctor and a small after-hours team so that users are always able to have round-the-clock accessibility. First Opinion doctors don't diagnose, but help people know when they need to go to the doctor, help them make preparations to get the most out of the visit, and help people who have questions after a diagnosis is made.On July 1st, 2018, First Opinion was acquired by Curai. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Opinion: Listen: Healing the healers: An advocate and a psychiatrist on clinicians’ mental health and burnout

Jun 9, 2021

This week on the “First Opinion Podcast,” I’m joined by Corey Feist and Wendy Dean to talk about the toll that practicing medicine can take on a health care worker’s mental health, and how the pandemic has made this worse. Feist co-wrote an essay on legislation supporting physician mental health with his wife, Jennifer Breen Feist, the sister of Lorna Breen, a New York City emergency physician who died by suicide in April 2020 after contracting Covid-19 and then returning to work. Wendy Dean is a psychiatrist who wrote with fellow physician Simon Talbot an iconic First Opinion in 2018 about the moral injury that many physicians experience. “We’ve got to do something differently in this industry,” Feist said at one point. “This is not about making the canaries stronger. This is about redesigning the coal mine.” advertisement   Be sure to sign up for the weekly “First Opinion Podcast” on  Apple Podcasts ,  Stitcher ,  Google Play , or wherever you get your podcasts. advertisement And if you have any feedback for us — First Opinion authors to feature on the podcast, vocal mannerisms the host needs to jettison, kudos or darts — email us at  [email protected]  and please put “podcast” in the subject line.
