Tis the season for illness! It is unfortunate, but sick season is upon us! We’ve already had several cases of strep throat at the preschool where I work. My cousin is down with pneumonia, and I’ve heard that the stomach bug is going around too. Ugh! With all of the things we’ve got to do as moms, taking kids or ourselves to the doctor is just one more thing we don’t have time for!
That is where Amwell comes in! Have a doctor visit in minutes in the comfort of your own home by using your computer, tablet, or phone. Amwell has pediatricians, family physicians, psychologists, and dietitians available. You don’t have to worry about seeing a doctor before their office closes because Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
They provide many services including medical, diet & nutrition, and psychology.
During my visit, Dr. Williams-Vaughn was very thorough. I asked her about my headache which had been lingering since this morning. I had taken something which helped with the pain, but I was still experiencing discomfort. She let me know it was safe to take Ibuprofen with what I had taken.
I then asked her ways to stay healthy since I work as a preschool teacher. She gave me several ideas and told me that bleach water really was a great way to get rid of germs in the classroom.
I also asked her the types of things they can and cannot take care of online. She said that if a patient needed a referral or if it was an emergency situation, they could handle that. She’s even called 911 for a patient before. Sometimes people call in and don’t really know their symptoms or their symptoms are too vague i.e. fatigue. Those types of things really require an in person visit. Amwell is a great service. They handle all ages and almost all conditions. They can refill most prescriptions, but they cannot fill any narcotic or hypnotic or lifestyle types of prescriptions.
After using Amwell, I highly recommend it! They ask for your insurance information and many insurance companies will cover telemedicine visits. It is great that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home when you or your child is sick! Why expose them to even more germs?
