Since 2018, our team has reviewed hundreds of telemedicine providers and wellness apps.
We’ve poured thousands of hours into research and partnered with medical experts – physicians, dentists, therapists, nutritionists, and more – to review our content for quality and medical accuracy.
Our editorial and medical advisory teams obsess over trends in health and wellness, then distill their in-depth research into helpful content that helps you cut through the noise. They then revisit their articles to make sure information remains reliable.
Curious if the D2C brands you see on Instagram and subway station ads actually work? You know… keep you eating well? Exercising regularly? Looking younger? And feeling more centered? Fin vs Fin helps you discover and compare the best online health treatments for your well-being.

No, nor do we claim to. When it comes to telemedicine and wellness offerings in general, someone’s individual experience is just one data point, but is often less relevant than other facts. As an example, it would be unwise to try a new brand of contact lenses or birth control, simply because they worked well for someone on our team.
Instead, our goal is to lay out objective facts about the products and brands we review to make it easier for shoppers to make decisions about them. One of those facts may be our personal experience with a product, but not always.
