We just finished a month of illness in my house. I ended up having antibiotics, a decongestant with codeine, an inhaler, and a bunch of OTC medicine. I am so glad I was able to use Amwell so it didn’t get that bad. I’m a mom, and we do not really have sick days. I kept trying to eat cough drops non-stop, or drink Theraflu to control my symptoms, hoping that I would get better with OTC medication. Being a parent, or just a busy person makes going to the doctor very difficult. There were two days that I wanted to go to the doctor, but couldn’t, because they were closed. Amwell said the day because they are never closed and I got help right away and they let me know what to do! I’m sure you’re wondering, “What kind of superhero is Amwell?!” It is the largest telehealth company! Amwell connects you with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night. You can connect with your smartphone or computer!
Common issues that the Amwell doctors (each has an average of about 15 years experience) treat include:
- Sinus infection
- Sore throat
- Urinary tract infection
- Sprains and strains
- Respiratory infection
- Weight concerns
- Smoking cessation
Getting started with Amwell is very easy. Just create an account at Amwell and use the code BEWELL19 for your first visit to be free. You will have to test your internet connection to make sure it is strong enough. You just choose the type of visit you are looking for, and select the provider you would like to see. There are always several doctors to choose from. You can click on each one to see their profile.
The doctor will meet with you and can diagnose, suggest follow up, and prescribe, when appropriate. Your visit with the doctor is secure and HIPAA compliant. Amwell, also takes insurance and tells you what the copay is prior to selecting that doctor. I’m all for no surprise bills at the end.
Amwell was created by doctors who know what it takes to run a successful doctor’s office! It is the most popular consumer telehealth app, the first telehealth service to get accredited by The American Telemedicine Association, the first telehealth platform to integrate with Apple’s Health App, and the only service that lets you select the doctor you want to see for an on-demand visit!
Amwell is perfect for everyone from busy moms, to people who live a ways from the doctor, or just someone who needs a prescription refilled! I’m going to leave you with my top 5 reasons for using Amwell:
Great option for students, those between jobs, people without insurance,etc.
After hours, on weekends, and in the middle of the night (24/7/365) availability.
You don’t have to wait for the doctor’s schedule to open up!
Peace of mind
Using Google can be a nightmare. Look up something as simple as a bellyache, and you will end up thinking you will die any minute! Don’t self-diagnose, or use an online forum. You will get peace of mind by speaking directly to a board certified, licensed doctor.
Make sure you use Amwell the next time illness strikes! To get your first visit free use the code BEWELL19 in the payment section.
