Easiest Way to Go to the Doctor

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are my own.

For some reason I have been sick more times in the past year. I think it's because my daughter was in school and so more germs are being spread around. Sick days just take on a whole new meaning when you're a mom. I still had to take care of the day to day around the house while my husband was at work. I didn't have time to go to the doctor! But what if you could go see a doctor from the comfort of your own home? Amwell let's you do just that!

American Well is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop. You can see a doctor anytime at the touch of your finger tips. Doctors on Amwell are board certified, with an average of 15 years in practice. They are available 24/7, with no appointment needed. Have a question to ask a doctor? Get the care you need quickly - typical issues include:
• Bronchitis
• Cough
• Sinus infection
• Sore throat

Just choose the type of visit you are looking for and select a provider. Depending on the issue at hand, the doctor can diagnose, suggest follow up, and prescribe, when appropriate. Amwell takes your privacy very seriously. Your visit with the doctor is secure and HIPAA compliant. Amwell is positioning itself to be the Amazon of Healthcare.

5 Reasons to Use Amwell:
  1. Lower cost. Consumers expect online visits to be cost-savers; with in-office visits costing, on average, $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book, Amwell offers a $49 physician visit – a savings of $33. Great option for students in college looking for cost-effective healthcare or those between jobs and without insurance.

2. Accessibility. After hours, on weekends and in the middle of the night (24/7/365) availability. Great for those who do have transportation or when you don’t feel well enough to drive and those who are newly relocated and don’t have providers yet.

3. Convenience. Consumers are looking for a faster appointment. Now they don’t need to schedule an appointment nor do they need to wait to be seen, especially if on vacation or business travel. The doctor can be seen from the comfort and convenience of their own home.

4. Quick prescriptions. Consumers would rather have an online video visit than an in-office visit to obtain common primary care prescriptions.

5. Peace of mind. Rather than self-diagnosing or visiting a social forum for medical advice, users can obtain second opinions directly from board certified, licensed doctors.

More About Amwell:

I always put off going to the doctor. I can not tell you how many times I have wished for a service like this. Any time I have an issue in the past, I have just stayed home, Googled my symptoms, and just hoped that it wasn't serious. But now I can enjoy peace of mind at a fraction of the cost without leaving my house. PLUS I can get a prescription if needed!

Plus for a limited time, you can use code HEALTHY3 to get your first visit for only ONE DOLLAR!

Do you go to the doctor when you are sick? What do you think of Amwell? Would you ever use an online doctor?

  1. I have used Amwell when it was late at night. It's always helpful!

  2. I've never heard of this before, but I am always worrying about my kids, so this would be really nice to have.
