Our Story

Founded with a rebellious
spirit & an ambitious objective

Our founders — a technologist and a pharmaceutical executive — created shiftMD to remove the unnecessary layers that block healthcare providers from getting their patients the products they need.

Given how saturated the wellness market is, it’s important for healthcare providers to cut through the noise to offer the best products for their patients — and for patients to have easy access to them.

No more waiting in lines at the drugstore; no more overwhelming internet searches — shiftMD enables healthcare providers to send products straight from their mobile devices to patients’ doorsteps.

Not only does shiftMD offer competitive pricing on products for patients, but we also make it so that providers can profit just by doing what they do best: getting patients the care they need.

shiftMD is the future of healthcare, and we’re excited to present this unique solution to help you grow a healthier practice.
