Find-a-Med proposes a new way for people to find the closest health and medical centers around them, complete with turn by turn directions. Among other features users can also:

  • store and track their basic health information
  • search based on proximity and filter through specific healthcare providers; pharmacies, eye care centres, dental clinics and the like.
  • write reviews about any centre they have visited, helping other users identify highly rated health centers in their areas.

Should you find that your local health centre missing in the directory, there’s an option to add it to the Find-A-Med database.

Find-A-Med is currently in its beta testing phase. You can try it out by downloading from the Google Play and Apple stores or, if you’re neither on iOS nor Android, you can access it directly from your mobile phone’s browser at
