Not feeling well? Need to see a doctor but you don't want to drive anywhere? Now you can get medical attention online without leaving your home! I love that Amwell allows you to conference with a live doctor, get expert medical advice, and even have prescriptions sent to a pharmacy of your choice!
My family recently travelled to four different states. The insurance I have is not good in other states, and so I was glad to find a reasonably priced doctor online. I did not have to search for doctors' offices, pay expensive office visits, or drive anywhere to see a doctor. For just $49 and access to an ipad, I am able to talk to a doctor, and have a prescription called into the pharmacy of my choice.
Turns out that what I had was actually allergies. Every time I entered a new state, I had new symptoms. Since I am not a doctor, I could not diagnose that. I just thought I had ear infections. It was actually pressure on my ears from my sinuses. The doctor told me what to get, and I was better in no time.
Let me show you how simple it is to use Amwell.
First, I downloaded the app.
Next, I clicked "Find a doctor."
