Until Amwell, I hadn’t tried an online doctor and even though I’m a work at home mom, getting to the doctor can be a task. When I don’t feel well and I have Baby M to care for, the last thing I want to do is get dressed and head to the doctors office and wait. The last time my husband went to our primary care doctor he had to wait 2 HOURS after his appointment time to see the doctor. (Yeah, I know, I would have left too but he had to see him for a nail bed infection that was pretty serious.)

If you haven’t heard of Amwell, they are an online telemedicine provider that allows you to speak with a doctor in the comfort of your home. Not only can you speak with a primary physician, you can also speak with a dietitian, therapist, or a pediatrician while lounging in your pajamas.

I know, I know, you’re probably rolling your eyes thinking “great, another online contact to email me constantly and need my insurance information, etc. before treating me” but that couldn’t be further from the truth! When I registered for an account it literally took 4 clicks and it gave me the option to enter my insurance information later.

Once I was into my dashboard, I entered my zip code to see all of my option for care. Other than no pediatricians being in my area yet, there were multiple options for me to choose from in every category. I clicked on a primary care doctor of my choice, downloaded a small video file, and in less than 10 minutes we were connected and speaking.

Online with AmwellPIN IT!The doctor was friendly, knowledgeable, and was willing to answer all of my questions without hesitation. Since I am also a nursing mom, she made sure to check that anything she suggest was safe for me and my baby. Nothing is worse than a doctor prescribing a remedy only to find out that you can’t take it due to being pregnant or nursing. I’ve had this happen multiple times and it was a headache trying to get in touch with the doctor to update the prescription.

Speaking with a doctor online with Amwell is probably as easy as telemedicine can get. Instead of waiting forever at a doctors office while trying to keep your kids calm, I would highly suggest checking them out. Not sure if its worth it? Try it for FREE! Just enter the code CARENOW7 when connecting with a doctor and your first visit is absolutely free!

    I’ve been hearing a lot about online doctors these past few months and it seems like this new trend is here to stay! I really love the connivence of being able to see a doctor from the comfort of home <3

  • Jaime Nicole

    I really love how these are popping up. I hate having to travel when I’m really sick, or when I just need something quick and I don’t want to miss work!

  • Amanda @ Adorkablii

    I love this. I think it’s perfect for those cold days when your little ones are sick and you don’t want to take them out there. =)

  • Jennifer

    I love Amwell! It’s seriously the greatest invention ever. It’s no wonder that they are #1! The doctor’s I’ve seen have all been very helpful and wonderful

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy

    What a fabulous idea! Going to the doctor’s office is sometimes so inconvenient. This sounds like such a fabulous option for so many reasons!

  • Liz Mays

    I’m glad it’s so quick and easy to get started. I would love not having to make an appointment or wait at the office whenever I needed to ask a question.

  • Miranda (Myrabev)

    The more I learn about amwell the more I am loving the idea of it. I have hectic work schedules topped up with my laziness so having amwell available is such a huge advantage as I do not have 2 hours to wait in doctors waiting area

  • HeathEr

    I like that this option is out there. I’ve downloaded this to check it out but unfortunately,h insurance doesn’t cover it yet, and my co-pay is less than the a well charge, so if I can get into the doctor I’ll choose the cheaper route, but if my insurance ever decides to cover Amwell, I think this would be an awesome alternative.

      This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

  • Michele D

    I love how easy it is to find a doctor in your area. So affordable for families too!

  • Jessica Harlow

    I think this is brilliant and so spot on! Not having to trek out with a sick kiddo or siblings in tow would be such a help!

  • Marts

    This is a very convenient service especially when you cannot afford to go out of your home to see a doctor.

  • Stephanie of The TipToe Fairy

    Man, I wish we could use this service. Our state is one of the few that doesn’t allow online physician visits. It drives me a little crazy, lol.

  • Chantal

    I think this is such an awesome idea! Nothing worse than feeling horrible and then waiting in the waiting room forever!

  • Stephanie

    I love the idea of this. So many times I’ve had to make the decision of whether it was more beneficial to a sick child to leave them home resting or wake them up and drag them to the doctor. This is the best of both worlds.
