As a mother of three, wife, blogger, and a full time job outside of the home it is pretty safe to say my time is my most precious commodity. Usually if I’m weighing costs vs time, time will almost always win out. Thankfully my workplace is very understanding when it comes to time off for sick time and doctor’s visits. However with three children they can add up. Sometimes it is hard to get an appointment during a desired time (which for me is first thing in the morning or the last thing in the evening). Often I wonder, especially when I was a new parent, is my child’s symptoms worth a doctor visit? In comes the Amwell app! Amwell is fast, easy and you can see a doctor anytime from anywhere.
Amwell is free to join and you can see doctors in 45 states and nutritionists nationwide. Your visit with the doctor is done through a live camera on your app. It is just like sitting in the doctor’s office and discussing your symptoms. I know there are times when I’ve had a cold and I know that it is moving up to my sinus, I just don’t have the time to sit and wait in the doctor’s office, because how many people get straight into see the doctor?
