Amwell Medical Doctor – Online

I love this time of year, spending time with family and friends and traveling. This week kicked off our first dinner and as usual, I woke up sick. I suffer from chronic sinusitis so every time the fall season starts I get sick. The issue I always have it literally no time to deal with it!

Fortunately, I have found a quick solution to my busy schedule. I love using the Amwell Urgent Care, it is quick and works great for my sinus issues. Right now an appointment with a doctor is on $69.00 if you Click Here and use the code: Amwell25 you can save 25% off! The appointments are quick yet really through.

So, I was able to jump online and within 20 minutes have a video meeting with the doctor and the best part….  have prescriptions called into my local pharmacist. The ability to have an urgent care readily available whenever needed regardless of where I am or what time it is has been such a blessing. So when I do travel, I do not have to worry about if I get sick!

In addition, I found out they take my insurance! I am super excited, I can get seen quickly, pay only my deductible and never miss a beat.

I chose to use my laptop, although you can use a tablet or even your phone. I signed in, filled out the information, which was WAY shorter than all of the information you have to fill out at the doctor’s office and clicked on what services I needed.

I was given a step by step instruction screen of how to download and launch the video page. After that you wait for your turn, mine only took about 15 minutes and then my visit started. The physician was thorough asking me about my prior issues then asking me all about my symptoms. I was amazed at the amount of knowledge he had and how quickly he was able to decipher if my issue was bacterial or viral. He was able to decide what I needed, send it in to be filled and give me other suggestions to what will help me get better.

  1. I have used this service before and was very happy with it. It’s a really convenient way to see a doctor.

  2. Never thought about using an online me doctor or even nurse. Will have to look into this for sure.

  3. I need to try this out! I hate having to go into doctor’s offices during flu season. Ick! This would be SO much better.

  4. This is so neat! I have never tried something like this out before.

  5. I’ve never thought of using an online doctor. I’m so happy that you have found a way to help you. I used to have chronic sinus infections during my pregnancy. It only lasted the 9 months but it was terrible!! I’m so happy your finding some relief. It is not a fun experience!

  6. This seems like an amazing service! I know when I have a sinus infection, I know what it feels like and cannot stand going to the Dr. just to get an antibiotic. Dealing with crowds when sick is the last thing you want to do.

  7. This sounds like a great service! Wish I knew about it last week. I had to wait over an hour for an appointment with my doctor. Totally sucked when I wasn’t feeling good.

  8. I actually did this yesterday! Like you I suffer with sinus infections. I got on Amwell and talked to a doctor. I did it a few years ago for $50 bucks, but they’ve increased the price to $59. I hope it doesn’t keep going up, but I knew it would have been more expensive at urgent care, especially since I’m not insured.

  9. I don’t like going to the doctors at all. Need to stay safe in cold weather like this.

  10. I’ve used Amwell a couple of times and I really liked it. It was good to not have to drag myself to the doctor.

  11. I haven’t used this service before but I’ve used a similar service and I LOVE it! It’s so nice to not have to go anywhere or wait in a lobby.

  12. I never actually tried Amwell but have heard about it a few times and I think it’s a great service. It’s especially great when you can’t take an entire sick day off.

  13. I’ve heard about these services but haven’t used them myself. I would love not having to sit in a waiting room with a bunch of sick people spreading germs.

  14. I need to check out Amwell! I am so sorry you deal with that! Polyps are NO fun!

  15. It’s such a convenient and awesome service because you can easily see a doctor without having to drive all the way to the hospital and wait in line. I think it’s perfect for people who need constant medical attention as well especially those who have no means to go to the hospital all the time.

  16. I love the ease of access they provide to you. Doctors can be some dodgy folks!

  17. What a convenient way to see a doctor. I didn’t know this was a service offered.

  18. Wow, i hope online doctors would also be available in our country in the future

  19. Love this! I’ve used online practitioners in the past and have always loved the convenience of it (seriously – who wants to travel to the doctor’s office when they’re sick?). I’ll have to check out Amwell the next time I’m in need.

  20. Man, my sinus is like literally bad right now and I think I may need some of their services..

  21. This is a great and convenient way to see a doctor without the hustle of finding one and making phone calls for appointments.

  22. This is absolutely fantastic! I hate going to hospitals and with my kids, I just don’t have the time. I love the idea they could even take my insurance and save me so much money for things I would normally have to go for.

  23. It sounds great for those who don’t have insurance or has insurance that doesn’t cover urgent care visits. We’re lucky and our copay is only $25 for urgent care visits.

  24. Dalene Ekirapa says

    It is so convenient now that with Amwell, you have access to medical attention asap. Sinusitis can get quite chronic and from people I’ve seen, it requires immediate attention and frequent care. So cheers to Amwell for making things easy. It’s even better than you can locally find the prescription. Stay well!

  25. I have never used an online doctor before but can see so many benefits for it something to remember for future x

  26. This is really a good option. Online doctor is really a great thing for people who needs medical attention. Thanks for sharing things to us.
