About Besafemeds

Unfortunately, we live in a society where people find that talking about sex or anything related to sex uncomfortable. However, with dating apps, technology has allowed us to go outside our normal circles, and with this, the risk of STD/STI transmission is increasing, as well as the stigma around sexually transmitted infections (STI) or sexually transmitted diseases (STD). At besafemeds, we prefer the less negative term of STI, which encompasses many diseases. STIs vary from the treatable to the untreatable, from those caused by bacteria to those that are caused by viruses or other organisms. As technology, has allowed us to be more sexually active, besafemeds allows technology to remove the stigma of treatment through discretion. We’re here for whatever happens.

We Focus On What Matters Most.

In this field, discretion and rapid treatment options are important to most people. Our providers have personal experiences where individuals call them directly to get treatment bypassing the conventional routes. Many people that show up in the ER or other clinics request some form of treatment before testing results come back. At besafemeds, our goal is to create a safe and comfortable journey that allows our patients to get the treatment and results they want in a quick and private process.

Modupe Ishmael (Operations and Strategy)

Modupe Ishmael is Dr. Ish’s sister, who chose to join her brother in this endeavor because she shares a vision of increased access and decreasing cost for healthcare (plus she enjoyed Ish’s story of how the idea for besafemeds came to be - aka what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas). With a background in client relationship management, customer satisfaction, and operations, Dupe is the chief problem solver who ensures all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. Her education includes a Masters in Project Management, Graduate Certificate in Human Resource (both Keller of DeVry, IL), a MBA (Purdue, IN), and an accounting degree (IIT, Chicago, IL). Most recently, Dupe worked as an Account Manager where she maintained operational functions of Fortune 500 clients’ online circular presence.
