This year has been really rough for the flu and illness around our country. I know that every doctor's office around is full of sick patients in the lobby. Personally I don't want to have to venture into that germ zone if I don't really have to! Luckily there is an easy way for busy moms to get quick medical answers from home!
Easy Way for Busy Moms to Get Quick Medical Answers From Home
Every family has those issues come up where you need to talk to a doctor. The problem is that it isn't always as easy as just calling and making an appointment. This time of year especially doctors are booked. Going to a minor emergency or immediate care facility takes FOREVER (in my experience) and usually costs me more money too.
What if you could get answers to your medical questions right from the comfort of your own home? Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to get out in the cold and drive somewhere? What if you didn't have to get exposed to all of those other sick people in the doctor's office waiting room?
The truth is that you CAN get medical answers right from your home! YES!! I love convenience!!
Amwell is the Answer
Amwell is the largest telehealth company in the country. All you need to have to use Amwell is access to a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
You get to talk to a board-certified, licensed doctor LIVE—day or night! Did I mention that the Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? That is perfect for families with children. We all know that things usually happen after hours!
What Can Amwell Help Me With?
I recently used Amwell to talk to a doctor about some sinus issues I was having. Feeling poorly for days, but honestly too busy to set up a regular doctor's appointment…Amwell was the perfect answer for me. I was able to chat with the doctor in my pajamas!!
The whole process was simple and quick. I went to the Amwell website. Within minutes I had my account set up and I was chatting with a doctor about how I was feeling.
I got the answers I needed quickly and didn't even have to get ready or leave my living room.
If you aren't sure what kind of issues Amwell can help with here are some common concerns people will call in for: minor illnesses and injuries, general health questions, wellness concerns, prescription refills and even chronic condition management.
Amwell even offers access to specialist physicians, licensed behavioral therapists and registered dietitians. This shows me that Amwell is dedicated to meeting the health and wellness needs of every patient. As a parent it is also nice to know that Amwell has Pediatricians available when my children have a health need.
