The Story of Physician 360
Co-founded by two board-certified Emergency Medicine physicians, we are a team of parents, patients, and everyday people. We understand the importance of keeping you and your family healthy. Modeled after the simplicity of the home pregnancy test, we created a user experience where you could pop into a local pharmacy, purchase a test kit, interact with a doctor on your smartphone, and walk out of that same pharmacy with a treatment plan (including prescription medication) in less than 30 minutes.
Three years later, we have partnered with over 1000 pharmacies across the US and large grocery corporations, like Ahold’s US-based brand, Giant Foods. Our vision is to create the largest network of affordable care clinics in the country, one pharmacy at a time. Join us today as we treat the leading cause of debt in America. Let’s reimagine healthcare, together.
“I want to be part of the solution to healthcare’s inefficiencies, not just work within a broken system.”
-Angela Fusaro M.D., MBA, Co-Founder & CEO
“I distinctly remember the reaction of my first Physician 360 patient. She was amazed at how easy and fast the process was. Seeing people change their behavior and recurrently use the product for different family members shows me the product is making the impact we expected.”
-Rob Lapporte, MD, Co-Founder & CMO
“People value the convenience. They love that it’s a one stop shop and no waiting room full of sick people.”
-Poole’s Pharmacy in Georgia
“People value the speed of the result, because they don’t have to wait in the doctor’s office for 4 hours.”
“I was in a lot of pain, but had difficulty getting an appointment with my doctor. I searched the internet and found that self testing UTI kits actually existed. Easy to follow instructions. I was called by a doctor and a prescription was called in within 15 minutes. Best experience ever. Highly recommend it.”

In 2018, everything was finally ready for launch: products were ready to ship, doctors were ready for online consults, and the website was ready for orders. As with any startup founders,we wore wore multiple hats every day, from building the website and studying logistics to giving telemedicine consultations and fielding questions on the phone. As the word spread about our kits, independent pharmacies became interested in offering the packages as a cost-effective alternative to big-box pharmacy clinics and doc-in-the-box services.
