Covid19 may have dispersed for now but other illnesses are not going anywhere and the new norm is to find treatments online.

Telemedicine, or online telehealth services enable you to talk with medical doctors from different parts of the world. You can tell them your symptoms, and get diagnosed right there and then.

Several months ago, telemedicine was something people paid little attention to. However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is now at the forefront of our minds. This is easier as it allows you to avoid mingling with hospital crowds, waiting in line and limiting exposure to other various viruses and diseases.

Psychological therapies have been taking place online since a long time because they really are all about counselling, behavioural patterns and talk therapy which doesn’t require you to be physically present in front of your therapist.

But what are the medical telehealth services? Are they all on phone? How does a doctor check you? Here are the answer and a short guide on how to treat yourself via online medical doctors.

Telemedicine Services in Pakistan

The advent of telemedicine has made healthcare more accessible in Pakistan. Now, you no longer have to make a trip to the hospital or clinic because of a minor cough or infection scare. You can simply consult an online doctor from the comfort of your home, car, or office and get a diagnosis. Based on this, these medical practitioners will advise you on what to do next.

Pakistan has many telemedicine service providers. In this article, we will examine the some of the best and most reliable ones. Like we do with all of our lists, we have conducted in-depth research to verify these services. So, you can be sure they are reliable.

Let’s get started!


Marham telehealth service is a website which has onboarded medical doctors available from different cities. When you want to connect and get a doctor to attend to you, you can search by:

  • Specializations – urologist, cardiologist, gastroenterologist, etc.
  • Problems – typhoid fever, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.
  • City – Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, etc.
  • Services – chemotherapy, CT scan, etc.
  • Surgery – hernia, endoscopy, etc.

You can also view each doctor’s profile before they attend to you, as well as their availability for a particular service.

Marham’s telehealth services are great, and appointments can be booked with audio or video facilities. You can also pay in advance so you can get your confirmation early. This will help you avoid any hassle you would otherwise encounter.

Marham telehealth accepts various payment methods, including Easy Paisa, bank transfers, cash on delivery, Jazz Cash, and credit and debit cards.

Finally, they operate a cancellation policy. To put this in motion, contact their customer service with the number you booked an appointment with. Your request will be granted within minutes, and you will be given a refund within 48 hours.

To use them, go through a list of their doctors, read their profile, look at their timings and days, notice which clinics they practice in and then finally locate their fee for video or audio consultation. When you get in touch, you may be asked to register on Marham, and they will then act as the arbitary window between you and the doctor.

Sehat Kahani

Sehat Kahani will show up in your internet search as well, and we think you should take a serious look at their service too.

They have doctors who are qualified in several areas. While the doctor profile lacks real knowledge, it does show experience, qualifications, and practitioner license number. Also, it shows their work address, phone number, and availability.

Perhaps the best thing about this service is its affordability: its fees are comparatively cheaper when compared to other telehealth service providers of its standing. What’s more? You can pay with your Jazz mobile account, vouchers, and credit and debit cards.

If you want a quick diagnosis, signup, search for the speciality you want the doctor of, or if you are unsure we recommend ‘General Physician’ who is online. And that’s really it. Just connect directly. The doctor will accept your call (audio/video) and you can talk right away. No wait time.

If however the call doesn’t go through, you will get an immidiate call from Sehat Kahani team and they will help you get connected to someone else who is online. Well, this is how it was with one of us when we were ill during Ashura holidays.

You and dr both have the option to start a video call, or an audio call and the option to message is right there too. So if there is bad signal issue, messaging works as well. Afterwards, you will get an email of the medicines and lab tests the doctor suggested.

Its actually a well planned UI. Their mobile apps for both iOS and Android are as good.

Their USP? Monthly Subscription plans. Pay once, and not worry about the next few consultations.
