ConsejoSano is launching the first online health advise service for all Spanish-speakers in Los Angeles offering licensed doctors, a health video TV channel, blog and other heath related articles, as well as health service locator for bilingual providers. Hispanics can obtain doctor advice online in Spanish and speak to a doctor via phone, mobile app or video conference 24 hours a day, 7 days a week regardless of their immigration status.
"ConsejoSano's goal is to provide high quality, affordable, convenient and confidential health advice to all US based Spanish-speakers regardless of their immigration status (citizen or undocumented) or income." said Abner Mason, CEO of ConsejoSano. "Every person deserves to talk to a doctor who can understand them and that they can understand when they or their families are sick"
By offering this convenience and easy-to-use service, ConsejoSano will become the first company in the US to provide a viable solution that alleviates the strain on a health care system that was never designed to address the needs of a Spanish-speaking audience regardless their immigration status.
An estimated 38 percent of Californians are Latino, but only 5 percent of the states' physicians are, and even fewer can communicate in-language ÔÇô this trend is not uncommon in other states.
Also by leaving millions of Spanish-speaking Latinos and the undocumented without crucial healthcare resources in-language due to the limited low cost health settings offering services in Spanish, emergency rooms across the country are unable to meet the demand of walk-in patients who typically seek medical advice for non-emergency ailments.
ConsejoSano is a low-cost option to ensure that Hispanics can connect with an experienced licensed doctors anytime, day or night. For more information visit www.consejosano.com
