As parents we are so busy so when our kids gets sick sometimes just taking them to the doctor for minor things like a cold and flu can be a hassle. I know there’s been many times as a parent when my child was sick in the middle of the night I wish I could have called a doctor. Also as a parent it’s just as hard to get myself to the doctor, my role as mom always seems to come first and when I’m sick the last thing I do is take time to go to the doctor. We are happy to partner with Amwell and Mom Trends Media on this post, all opinions are our own.
Maybe this sounds familiar –
Earlier this year I was introduced to Amwell, the service that allows you to see a medical provider right from the comfort of your own home. I have since used the service many times and in fact I used the service just last month when I was sick and was diagnosed with a nasty respiratory infection. Luckily I easily saw a doctor and got a prescription for antibiotics and started to feel much better within just a few days and it was all thanks to Amwell.
No matter where you are there are 46 states in the U.S that allow you to see a doctor with an online visit. Their doctors are certified physicians with more than 15 years of experience. It’s also the first telehealth service awarded accreditation by The American Telemedicine Association, and the first platform that integrates with Apple’s Health App. Plus it allows me to choose the doctor I want to see rather than have one assigned to me.
In the past we have used Amwell for minor illnesses like pinkeye (yea that actually happened) and the cold & flu. Also since Amwell accepts many healthcare plans your appointment may be fully covered. When our six year old was sick our Amwell doctor was such a comfort, she even called me back to see how she was doing a few hours later and prescribed her with the medicine she needed to start feeling better. Sure enough she was back to her spunky self just a few days later.
