The idea for Medoozle came into being in 2011, after our CEO and Founder, Patrick Krahenbuhl, experienced a bit of an ordeal trying to find a well-recommended doctor and a dentist for his family of four.
Having just relocated to Dubai with a six-month-old micro-preemie, Patrick’s family didn’t have a social network yet to turn to in the UAE to ask for recommendations for a “good paediatrician” or an eye doctor experienced in treating infants.
While searching the Internet turned up many names of doctors, Patrick found no reliable information on the doctor’s professional experience, patient recommendations, or other information that told him these were the right doctors for his family’s needs.
Over the following years, Patrick observed many UAE residents in similar situations asking for recommendations for “a great orthopedic surgeon in Dubai” or “a good dentist in Jumeirah for braces for my daughter”.
That was when he decided that the community needed a trustworthy and easy-to-use resource where everyone can find the best doctors, dentists, therapists, medical specialists and other healthcare professionals in the UAE that are right for their individual situation, based on the experience and honest recommendations of previous patients.
With a nine-criteria-based rating for these healthcare professionals, Medoozle gives patients a starting point for finding, evaluating, and choosing the right care provider. Feedback received from their patients’ reviews and ratings, can help a doctor, for example, assess his or her own strengths and weaknesses and change accordingly.
Healthcare professionals do not pay to be listed on Medoozle. All profiles are free. However, healthcare professionals can opt to expand their profile with additional information and images for a fee. We provide all healthcare professionals access to their profiles, allowing them to change and correct information. At Medoozle, we strive for fairness and accuracy.
Medoozle enables healthcare professionals in the UAE to connect with millions of patients with their free online profile, to cultivate new patient relationships, improve patient access, and build customer loyalty.
We are committed to continually improving our site. We are open to the suggestions and ideas of our users. Please share your comments on our social media pages or contact us here.

We at Medoozle believe that every human is important and that children are the future of humanity. A loving home and family are the cornerstones for building the life of children who grow up to shape a peaceful future. Medoozle has therefore committed to donate 2 percent of its revenues to SOS Children’s Villages, an independent, non-governmental international development organisation which has been working to protect and care for children who have lost parental care, or who stand at risk of losing it. The organisation has been working with communities, partners and states since 1949 to ensure that the rights of all children, in every society, are fulfilled.
"Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear." — Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
