Advisors

Patient care designed by world-leading medical experts.

Ro's Medical Advisory Board is made up of renowned medical leaders - from expert physicians, to endowed professors, former health care regulators, and administrators - who have helped guide us from the beginning.

With their involvement, patients are not being cared for by just their physician; their care is being shaped by an entire team of experts that have carefully vetted every aspect of their experience. How we leverage the expertise and counsel of our advisory board is a crucial part of what makes Ro unique.
