If you’re a mom, you know the holidays can be hectic! Shopping, cooking, wrapping, visiting…and then one of the little ones gets a sniffle. That sniffle turns into a cough, your kid coughs all night, no one gets any sleep. AND, this always seems to happen on a holiday or weekend!
What if I told you there was a way you could visit with a doctor–anytime–from the comfort of your own home? Well there is!
Amwell is the newest way to get your child or yourself seen by a doctor. It’s all done online–via an app on your device or a visit to the website on the computer! You can choose from numerous doctors in practices such as psychology, nutrition, dermatology, and of course pediatrics. These are all REAL, US trained, board certified doctors, so you can be sure you’re getting the best of care!
Once you go through the simple two step registration process, you can then choose the physician you want to consult with.
My child is fortunately feeling well, so I decided to meet with a dietary provider to speak about some issues I had been having during my third trimester of pregnancy.
Once you choose the type of doctor you need, you can then look through profiles and find the best fit for you.
I chose a dietician who was also a lactation consultant! Breastfeeding moms, how cool is it to know you can contact someone to help you with those latching questions in the middle of the night?
After answering a few questions about medical history and medications, I was connected with my provider in less than 10 minutes. That’s definitely less than I would spend in a traditional waiting room!
The video was clear and flowed smoothly, and I never had any connection problems. You get a 25 minute visit that can be extended is necessary. I’m happy to say my chosen provider was courteous and knowledgeable. I felt like I was talking to a friend! I got quick and precise answers to my questions and she was very professional.
I would definitely not hesitate to use Amwell again in the future! Did I mention you can even get prescribed medications during your visit, and the prescription is sent to the pharmacy for you?! Amwell does accept some insurances, but if you are uninsured, a visit is around $49 or less. You can even get your first visit FREE by using code CARENOW19 on the payment screen.
Next time your child is sick in the middle of the night, don’t wait till morning–use Amwell and get instant peace of mind.
