The CEO of Ro, a healthcare startup whose brands prescribe Viagra and other medications online and ship them to customers' doors, just accused rival company Hims of ripping off part of its website.




A new online doctor's visit experience from Hims copies Ro "word for word," Ro CEO Zachariah Reitano said in a screenshot-laden Medium post published on Monday morning.




The tone of Reitano's post is sardonic, even going so far as to quote Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.




As two big and well-funded names in this space, Hims and Ro have developed a quiet rivalry. The very public charge by Reitano shows that the competition is heating up.




Hims did not immediately return a request for comment.

For patients who want to bypass the doctor's office and buy prescription drugs online, services like Hims and Ro's Roman offer rival services to do just that.
Now, the competition is heating up, with an accusation by Ro CEO Zachariah Reitano that Hims cribbed part of Ro's website.
The claim focuses on an online doctor's consultation that patients must go through — and which Reitano says a redesign of Hims's site copies "word for word" from Ro, from the design to the website copy and even copyediting mistakes.
