There’s a fantastic new way to see a doctor without having to go to the doctor! Amwell makes it easy to have a doctor visit without leaving your home. (And your first visit is FREE! Just use code BEWELL13 ) All physicians are board certified too, so you can rest easy knowing you are talking to a real doctor, that can make real recommendations as far as your health is concerned.
Setting up your account is very simple. When I was setting mine up, I entered my personal information, filled out a health questionnaire, just like the one you fill out at the doctor’s office, then I answered a few questions about the health issue I was going to be talking about with the Amwell doctor, chose the doctor I wanted to see, and after approximately five minutes, I was talking to the doctor! Oh…and everything is Hipaa compliant as well! For an online visit, you’ll need to make sure your computer camera is on so the doctor can assess your physical appearance, and your microphone should be on as well. If you don’t have a webcam, then the Doctor will call you.
You can see the doctor for any number of reasons, like cough, diarrhea, bronchitis, sinus infections, sprains, muscle pain, anxiety, and even smoking cessation. These doctors can also call in any required prescriptions to your chosen pharmacy. You even have the option to visit with a mental health doctor if needed! You just choose the type of doctor you’d like to see when you sign in for your visit. Doctors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it costs a lot less than a regular doctor’s appointment and most insurances are accepted! Office visits are just $49 compared to the average $83 at a brick and mortar doctor’s office. The doctor’s will also follow up with you on your care!

#MomsLoveAmwell ! I found this to be an extremely easy service to use. The doctor solved the issue I’d asked about and made some recommendations. You can even schedule a visit regarding your child’s health! This is a service I’m going to be taking advantage of!
