Dr. Dorsha James, MD
Dr. Dorsha James, MD is making affordable health services available to everyone through her telemedicine company, myURGENCYMD. As an emergency room physician for 15 years, she witnessed the astronomical fees patients can incur when using the ER for what she calls urgencies instead of emergencies. Things like ear and sinus infections, pink eye, colds, allergies, urinary tract infections, and more can lead to bills of hundreds of dollars or more. However, because those suffering can’t get a timely appointment with their primary care physician, don’t have health insurance, or don’t have the upfront fees required by minor medical facilities many decided to visit the ER. Dr. Dorsha, as she’s affectionately called, decided to do something about it and created the company in 2018.
