What sets us apart?
- Accessing medical information on your mobile device should be much easier than referring to any paper publication – but most existing apps don’t make it seem so. We make it happen.
- We understand that an app is only as good as it functions. And for us, “function” means presenting complete information through an app that also looks good.
- Our ability to work with reputable editors allows us to transform pocketbooks into amazing mobile applications that customers will want to use.
Browsing the Apple App Store’s many applications, Messil founder Marc-Emile came across the extremely popular Speed Bones MD app. Intrigued by the app’s functionality and design, Marc-Emile looked a little closer — “Developed by Benoit Essiambre.”
Recognizing the name of his good childhood friend, Marc-Emile was initially taken aback, but soon made the move to contact the acquaintance he had lost touch with years ago. An email or two later, and the concept for MD on Call was cultivated.
The collaboration was soon made official, and out of it Marc-Emile and Essiambre’s “Messil” was born.
MD — Radiation Oncology Resident,
Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario.
“Trying to understand what makes Apple products so popular is a good challenge — and trying to adapt this vision to our products is very exciting.”
While he possesses a special interest in everything Apple, Marc-Emile also loves to remain active, and is an avid snowboarder, jogger, golfer and mountain biker. Spending time with friends in front of coffee or beer is also high on his list of interests.

As self-proclaimed “geek” of the team, Benoit is an indy developer, credited with creating many popular apps on iOS and Android, including the Speed Anatomy app series which was downloaded more than 1.5 million times.
Benoit believes that new technologies are changing the way everything is made and sold – creators and customers are becoming closer than ever, and the bureaucratic business layer between them is being replaced by automated and social web technologies.
