Amwell Medical Doctor – Online

As most know I deal with chronic sinusitis daily. For years now I have had to deal with polyps and so far four sinus surgeries. After my 4th sinus surgery, I was introduced to ways to improve my chances of continually getting infections, such as flushing my sinus cavities out daily. In doing these measures I have better managed my condition, although every now and then they do still occur. Like recently, I noticed I was beginning to get stopped up again and regardless what steps I took I was unable to stop the inevitable, another sinus infection.

This week is not the best time for me to get sick, I seriously have no time to run to the doctor! I was so thrilled to find out about Amwell Medical Doctor online. 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.

 

Then to top it all off, 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.

I will definitely be using them again, and I just so happen to be able to offer you 25% off your visits!! If you don’t have insurance or even if you do you should check out my code:  MOM1

  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!
