DoctorPage, a web and mobile reservation platform that connects doctors with patients, announced today that it has received funding from several investors from around the world.
- Damian Doberstein, co-founder of major Russian e-commerce company KupiVIP
- Christian Gaiser, founder of KaufDa, which was acquired by Axel Springer in 2011, and now CEO of location based shopping network Bonial International Group
- Tim Marbach, also the founder of KaufDa

“We analyzed more than two dozen e-health companies worldwide and ultimately decided to invest in DoctorPage, the most promising e-health company in Asia,” said Brehm.
Launched in September, DoctorPage enables patients to instantly search and book appointments online with doctors. The service also includes a CRM system for healthcare professionals to optimize patient flow and clinic efficiency.
Besides the web app, DoctorPage also has a mobile version on the iPhone and iPad. An Android version is in the works.
The company competes with DocDoc, a similar startup that launched in Singapore in August and is making a move into South Korea. It is funded by Silicon Valley-based venture capitalist Dave McClure, who is also the founder of 500 Startups; former DBS Chairman Koh Boon Hwee; and Jungle Ventures, a Singapore-based tech startup incubator under the NRF TIS scheme.
