Our Story

While on a trip to South America back in 2014, Yam Derfler, cofounder of Air Doctor, fell ill and was treated at a local hospital. The long hours spent in the hospital in addition to poor treatment led Yam to realize that there had to be a better solution for travelers unfamiliar with local medical services.

A quick survey showed that most of his traveler friends who got ill or injured preferred to wait it out rather than see a doctor due to a lack of trust in the local health services.
Upon his return, Yam decided to research this experience and concluded that this happens far too often.

No one should have to be in a situation where they put their health at risk, especially when traveling abroad.

Air Doctor was created by Jenny Cohen Derfler and Yam Derfler and was later joined by Efrat Sagi Ofir and Yegor Kurbachev in order to give travelers an intuitive and accessible platform to find the right doctor for their needs, wherever they might be.
