I am a mom to four beautiful children. Usually when one of them needs to go to the doctor, we all go because my husband is at work and there’s no one to watch the others. There’s nothing more trying than having four children in the doctor’s office all at one time. It’s nerve-racking for me, the doctor, and the kiddos.
I recently heard about an app called Amwell. I was curious to see how it worked and if would fit into my busy lifestyle as a mom.
I went into the app store and downloaded the Amwell app on my iPad. It’s super easy to find and doesn’t take long to download. After it downloaded, I was able to put in my information to open an account.
After I entered the app, it let me choose what type of doctor I’d like to see and I chose a medical professional. I decided to use my appointment to discuss an issue with my incision I’ve been having since my last cesarean.
I chose my doctor, filled out my information, and waited 2-3 minutes to see the doctor. The view was clear and I could hear her just fine. I liked that she jumped into my medical issue right away and didn’t waste too much time chatting. 15 minutes can go pretty fast!
For $49 you can see a doctor, dietician, or therapist!
- Regular doctor visit: 10-15 minutes
- Session with a dietician: 30 minutes
- Session with a therapist: 45 minutes
Notice how inexpensive seeing an Amwell doctor is? $49 opposed to the $100 my doctor’s office charges.
I love that you can talk to the doctor about almost anything! Here are some of the issues you can easily chat with an Amwell doctor about.
- Sinus infection
- Sore throat
- Urinary tract infection
- Sprains and strains
- Respiratory infection
- Weight concerns
- Smoking cessation
I think one of my favorite things is that the app bring medical care to me 24/7. If I have an issue with one of my kids and need to speak to a doctor, I can do it in the middle of the night if I need to. I also don’t drive myself crazy trying to search Google with symptoms. I wish I knew about Amwell when I was pregnant with any of my kids, I could have saved myself a lot of time and headache with all my questions.
I think you’ll love using the app. It’s super easy and doesn’t take long to get in with a doctor! Here are some other reasons to use Amwell:
