I make so many calls to patients after hours. I don’t want them to have my personal number. Some would take advantage of it!! I used to have to have a second phone. It was expensive to have a second plan but if I bought minutes it seemed like I either never had enough or I bought too many and they expired. Some of my patients don’t answer if they don’t recognize the number so I’d end up having to call again from the office. It was so frustrating! This app lets me use my office number so patients are more likely to pick up, saving me time later, and they don’t get my private number! No more carrying a second phone, paying for minutes I don’t use! I tell all my doctor friends about this app!
This App Has Changed My Professional Life
This app is amazing! I am a NP that found it hard to call Patients away for The clinic or office. Before I was able to call my patients through Doximity patients would not take my call because my personal cell number was blocked or came up as an unknown number and it was very difficult to reach them. Now when I call patients they pick up because they see is that office calling and they actually pick up the phone. I used to get so frustrated when patients know I would be calling them back and they wouldn’t answer the phone. This has decreased my level the frustration a great deal!! Now my patients know exactly who’s calling them! I am so happy with this app. Thank you
Great medical App!
When I first signed up on this App I was amazed at the number of physicians on file. I was instantly updated with over half of my medical school class from 35 years ago. I have enjoyed giving my personal fax number to labs and other sources when I want immediate access to the data, like being on call on the weekend and I can then simply forward it to my office for filing. Saves me interrupting phone calls and scrambling to write down data. I am using it with my residents and faxing them information about patients we are co managing. This saves them multiple visits to my office to pick up printed records and reports. I appreciate the subscription service to journal abstracts, too. Bravo on this App.
Phone calling is good
I dislike being updated with several dozen people that may have been associated with me through medical school association or previous appointment association. I don’t know all of them and most of them are so far away- sometimes on the other coast. I dislike the notifications. Had to make sure they are off. I don’t want to know about these unrelated CME opportunities. I don’t want want to know about these related CME opportunities. I like the phone call masking my number for the Office number. That is worth all the cumbersome unused other features.
I like using my cell phone, through this app. Instead of my personal number showing up, my office number appears on my clients caller ID. I have had clients in the past, save my personal number from their caller ID, next thing you know they are using it as if they have been given the privilege to text/call any time. Professional boundaries are overlooked & difficult to uphold, in this current day and age, especially when medical providers are expected to make every one happy.
This app is essential to modern clinical practice. It lets me control how I communicate with my patients any time of day. With patient portals, email, and my inboxes accessible on my phone 24/7, it’s become necessary to reach out to patients on the go, and with Doximity caller I can do just that. Keeping my private number private means my patients will be safely routed to the on-call physicians when I finally do carve out time for my family. It’s a great app every clinician needs.
Issue with abstract reading
The most recent version has an issue when reading abstracts. If I click the “Read More” button to expand an abstract, then the whole app freezes. This has REALLY hindered the functionality of the app, as this is its main purpose in my life. This is one of two functions I utilize, the other being the dialer (which is great for calling patients from my personal phone, but comes up with my office phone number in their caller ID). I’d be happy to change this review, should this problem be fixed in the future. In fact, the app could be even better: if I click on an article, it’d be great if the entire abstract was immediately expanded for my review. (Less clicks would be great.)
Very useful app that I use nearly every day
There is the networking, and the articles, etc, but, far and away the most useful feature is one that allows me to make calls to patients on my cellphone that look like they are from my office. It allows me to call patients from home without sharing my number. So useful!
Facebook/LinkedIn For Doctors
Doximity itself is fantastic. A virtual community for doctors. A great way to keep in touch. Two things primarily keep me from giving it 4 or 5 stars: 1) while the iphone app is great the version for the ipad is just an enlarged version of the iPhone app. It doesn’t even support landscape view! Which makes it a pain for those who use their iPads more like a laptop. 2) the jobs feature is great but needs to be expanded and include more postings and more granular information on salaries to be truly useful. It is a great start though!
Pretty good but unpredictable
It works as advertised BUT: 1) often (not always) there is enough lag time I ask to call directly from my phone (I'm not trying to "hide", just trying to get patients to answer a call from an unknown number and 2) lately I've gotten a number of messages not going through because the "number is no longer configured to support the intended call location" or something like that. Very frustrating and I have just emailed customer service.
An app I use often- Facebook for physicians
Is an app I use regularly has allowed me to keep better contact with my colleagues and former medical school friends. The ability to receive faxes and communicate with others and comply with HIPAA has been very useful. The one thing I would like to see added is the ability to read articles holding my phone in the horizontal mode. Other than that, I’m pretty happy with this app.
Helps but the lag is annoying at times
I use the Dialer function to answer pages and the lag that exist with what appears to be a non HD call can be very distracting. It’s worse at certain times of the day. I also wish there was a function that gave a number for people to call you back on. Should be simple with the fact that the IPhone Max and many apps are able to do that now.
Dialer is useful
Great concept, useful for providers to not divulge their personal phone number, able to make the call from the “clinic” phone number so patients are not spooked by out of state call. I wish the latency of the calls could be improved, the slight delay between when someone says something and the other person’s response can be a little awkward and cumbersome to work around.
Used to love this app
I used to love this app! The dialer is still great. Recently an update separated inbox from outbox which was great. Unfortunately it also stopped allowing me to share PDF from other apps. Writing Rx in a PDF editor then sharing directly to fax through doximity was use but now I have to save the PDF, go into oximity to fax section, find file, then fax. Many extra steps which make it usually not worth it and instead I just share to my secured email and my office faxes them. That work around saves me time but not them!!
App still needs to fix a major bug
I hate when I get a email summary of content, click a link to go directly to the article, then it takes me to an option to view on app which I click but the app opens to its homepage, not the article I clicked on the email. Then I have to search for the article. Because of that problem alone, I just browse the email and rarely go read the actual article. Fix this!
