Ever find yourself in need of a doctor and have no idea where to begin? I’m in that situation right now. We moved to California in January, and it’s a temporary thing but I still find that I’m going to need a doctor. The kids need eye exams, dental exams and an appointment with an orthodontist. I could use a good general practitioner to get refills on my meds but I don’t know where to begin. I could ask some of my local friends which doctors they use but doctors are sort of really a personal fit if you know what I mean. One person may love their doctor but the next person it just doesn’t work. So how do you find a doctor.
The internet is a great way to start looking but you still want to have information about them and find out what other people think about them right? American Well is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with their choice of doctor for immediate, 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 behavioral therapists and nutritionists, to meet all our patients’ needs. American Well doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy — and all from the comfort of your home.
I created an account and it’s pretty cool because it will keep your information all in one place. Amwell asked for my insurance information, my kids information. You can enter your medical history and it will keep track of the meds you are taking. It also keeps a log of when your next appointment is and the best thing is that if you have the app then it’s all in the palm of your hand. I can’t ever remember what I’m taking and the dosage so having it on my phone makes life a breeze. Another thing that’s great is that you can get advice.
The on-line conversation feature is really amazing. Talking to a doctor without even leaving your home. WOW! And one of my favorite features is how you can access your symptoms. Anytime I’ve wanted to know how my kids are doing and if I should take them to a doctor I’ve used a similar assessment system on-line so I love having that on my phone. If you’re traveling this app is a really great way to find a doctor in an area you have no idea where to even begin. In fact, you can try it for free. Use the code MOMSQUAD when you check out.
