In the last year I have changed many things about my lifestyle in order to be the healthiest version of me that I can be. However one thing has remained… my dislike for going to the doctor. I know it sounds crazy for me to say I am focused on health and then say in the very next sentence that I do not like to go to the doctor, but it is true. There is just something about doctors’ offices that makes me uncomfortable.
Not to mention having to load up the kids to go and praying they won’t be exposed to something in the waiting room. I have found that I often stress myself out so much in the waiting room that I feel more sick than I did to start with. Or even worse, I go through all of that – only to find out it is a virus that can not be treated and I just need to rest and wait it out.
Thankfully I have discovered Amwell – the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dietitians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop. In a matter of seconds I can log in, and be face to face with a medical professional who can help answer any of my health needs – including when it is time to actually go to the doctor for treatment.
I especially love Amwell when my kids aren’t feeling well. I can let my little girl continue to rest while I find out whether it’s necessary to head out to the local doctor or not.
Even better, Amwell physicians are available 24/7 – without the need for an appointment! It is like having a doctor best friend that you can call on any time! And speaking of best friend – everyone I have ever spoken to has been super friendly, and eager to help – even in the wee hours of the morning.
To speak to a physician at Amwell all you need to do is choose the type of visit you are looking for – medical, nutrition, psychological, etc – and then choose from the list of providers online. In seconds you will be connected and face to face with your doctor. Depending on the issue at hand, the doctor can diagnose, suggest follow up, and prescribe, when appropriate.
Amwell takes your privacy very seriously and your visit with the doctor is secure and HIPAA compliant. You can get your questions answered privately and securely, right in the comfort of your own home – often for even less than a standard doctors visit.
