FaceMyDoc Review

FaceMyDoc: Is it Legit or a Scam? I first heard of FaceMyDoc about a year ago via the digital marketing space. After seeing some posts on forums and social media, I finally decided to check FaceMyDoc out for myself. I personally preferred their vibe to that of other companies.

And it’s not just a software platform; FaceMyDoc is the only company that I know of in the space that offers an entire turn-key business opportunity for licensed healthcare providers. From software, medical billing, risk…
