Amwell ~ Quality Online Doctors Visits For Busy Families! #MOMSLOVEAMWELL
It is no secret that I have had a crazy year this year. Anyone that knows me has heard all about it. My family has been plagued with tons of health issues and I have been running my mom and dad around regularly, to and from doctors appointments. Once everything seemed to calm down and my parents were in good health, I was ready to get back into my regular routine. Finally 🙂 I have been trying to make the most of my daughter’s summer vacation and selected a gorgeous and hot day to go to the beach. It was a fabulous day for sure until my daughter got a little too much sun, even after using tons of sunscreen. We got home and she took a cool shower, applied some aloe to her skin and laid down to rest as she was really tired and hot. It really is no biggie right? Wrong… she broke out with a horrible rash on her shoulders, so I decided to take a preventative course of action and contacted a Doctor through Amwell to help me figure out my next course of action when it came to my daughters health and well being. It was not a major emergency and I did not feel like spending hours running to and from the doctors office as well as waiting in the waiting room for who knows how long….. which is what truly makes American Well (Amwell) so amazing. With the crazy busy lives we live today. It is no secret that time is of the utmost importance and a visit from home via my computer was the way to go.
Real quick, let me tell you a little about Amwell. Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting its users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians, lactation consultants and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits. You can visit anytime of the day or night via either your mobile phone or desktop computer. Some of the general reasons people use Amwell for the convenience of a doctors visit at home are….. minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills and chronic condition management. Amwell employs primary care, specialist physicians, licensed behavioral therapists and registered dieticians to meet their patients’ health and wellness needs. Their doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are truly dedicated to keeping you and your family healthy. It does not get any better than that for convenience and quality care in the comfort of your own home.
Now back to the issue at hand which is what to do about my daughter’s sunburn accompanied by a rash on her shoulders? The picture above is the pic I used for my virtual visit in order to show the doctor what the rash looked like. I simply chatted with the online doctor about the issue on my home computer and it was super easy and simple. When you schedule your online visit you are able to choose from a list of available doctors as well as view their profiles to make sure they are the perfect match for your needs. My wait time was between 5 to 10 minutes and I used the time to organize my desk area while I waited. Once the doctor was available to see me… the web camera opened up and I was able to see the doctor via my computer. We chatted and I told her about the visit to the beach and the sunburn accompanied by a rash. She asked a few questions and gave me instructions on how to treat it from home, and also let me know that if it did happen to get worse and the symptoms did not go away within a few days, to visit my daughter’s local doctor. I was already applying cool rags to her shoulders and applying aloe to relieve the sunburn pain as well but as advised by my online doctor, I added in a dose of Tylenol to relieve the pain and made sure she stayed out of the sun and/or was covered properly when we did have to go outside. Sure enough…. the rash subsided and her burn turned to a tan and then peeled… but she was OK and no longer in any pain after 1 to 2 days. The advice the doctor gave me was spot on and I loved saving a trip to the doctors office all while being provided amazing care from the comfort of my home. It truly saved me time and money.
I am so happy that I was able to use Amwell’s online doctor service to treat my daughters sunburn and rash. I saved my family time and money and my daughter was able to heal and get better because of the comforting advice given to us via Amwell and their online doctor visit. Amwell is perfect for minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills and chronic condition management. Their doctors can even prescribe medications and refer you to doctors for follow-up care if needed. So instead of wasting valuable time at a doctors office, simply visit an Amwell online doctor from the convenience of your home.
