Doctor On Demand, a San Francisco, CA-based healthcare service that provides Video Visits with board-certified physicians, closed a $21m round of Series A financing.
The round was led by Venrock with participation from Shasta Ventures and angel investor Sir Richard Branson. As part of the round, Bryan Roberts, Partner at Venrock, joined Doctor On Demand’s Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand its team, build its network of physicians, and add new offerings.
