With Amwell, See a doctor immediately

Today I went out of my norm and had a Heath visit online. EEK! Did I just shove myself into the year 2018 where this is a "thing" you can NOW do??? First let me back up and give you some information about who I chose and WHY!

 Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop. Some general conditions our doctors encounter include: minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills, and chronic condition management. We employ primary care and specialist physicians, as well as licensed behavioral therapists and registered dietitians, to meet our patients’ health and wellness needs. Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy -- all from the comfort of your home.

I recently had surgery and have been on bed rest for the last week. Lucky me I have a horrific ear ache and had an inkling I have a ear infection. TRUE STORY! This idea of taking to a doctor from the comforts of my home was so appealing that I had to try it!! I headed to the Amwell website to research some physicians that could help. If you are completely weird-ed out by this concept think......."no more traffic, waiting rooms, or rescheduling—just you, your device (smartphone, tablet or computer) and a doctor. Your visits are secure reachable 24 hours a day from home or on the go.
I started by creating an account which took about a minute. Your information is then stored securely for all future online visits.
Next, I searched around to find which physician I needed to book an appointment with. They show you a list of available doctors, their experience and ratings before starting your visit.
Once you have done this you are paired with a physician. They will video call you on your laptop/mobile and talk until they feel they can help you or direct you to seek more medical attention if needed. It is THAT easy!

  1. Do take care! Also, yup Amwell seems like a really great invention! This is great because rather trying to search remedies or reasons for your health issues online you can just see a doctor from the comforts of your home!

  2. I hope you're feeling better! The app seems like a really great idea though and something to keep in mind for anyone who wants to see a doctor quickly and easily. Since I don't have a partner and often have to drive myself to the doctor, this might be something worth trying out.
