Look, I’m busy. I have teenagers and toddlers and the impending arrival of my first grandchild. Visiting a doctor seriously becomes difficult to find time to actually accomplish with our jam packed schedule. Plus, have you ever sat in a waiting room with a toddler that doesn’t feel good? Not fun! I’ve mentioned it before here on the blog, and I’ll say it again – you can see a doctor and NOT even leave your home. You can stay in your pajama’s, you can literally roll out of bed to call. And seriously, if mom’s the one who is sick? Forget that! I’d rather sit on my couch and talk to my doctor. You can too!
What are 5 great reasons to choose Amwell?
Our Amwell Experience
I recently used Amwell for my pregnant daughter because she had a bunch of questions and concerns and didn’t have an appointment for another few weeks. We clicked on Amwell Medical and quickly found a primary care provider who specialized in women’s health, which was exactly what we were looking for.
She spent quite a bit of time with my daughter and I, and put our mind at ease about several concerns. She was excellent, and as all my previous experiences have been, was a very pleasant, positive, easy experience.
Just to give you a run down of what to expect…
After choosing the doctor you would like to see, the app will ask for some information about the patient and what the reason for the virtual visit. It was easy to fill out and we were connected to her in literally seconds.
She was very generous with her time and could hear the concern in my daughter’s voice (and see it on her face). She reassured my daughter and made her feel MUCH better about everything.
We were pleasantly surprised when, the following day after the virtual visit, the doctor called to check on my daughter and see how she was feeling.
Once you have completed a doctor visit, you can request a report of the visit using the app and is then emailed to you a few minutes later.
This was great because the report we recieved included all of the doctors suggestions and information and we were able to print it and bring it with us to my daughters next OB-GYN appointment.
Because I have been very impressed with the Amwell service several times now, I know we will continue to use it for any range of problems from medical, to counseling and even diet and nutrition after my daughter delivers and is breastfeeding. We have already chosen the nutritionist we will be contacting.
Final thoughts: We love Amwell. We find it extremely convenient to use, love that we can access a doctor at strange hours and even get a prescription when we suffereing with a sinus infection. Yes, we have done that. My daughter has insurance that covers Amwell visits, so we are saving money there and that’s more money in their pockets for when baby comes.
