Amwell: Save Time and Skip the Trip to the Doctor’s Office


We’ve all been there.  One child gets sick. Then another. And then you!  Doesn’t the world know that we Moms don’t have time to get sick?!  I don’t know about you but when I am sick , a trip to the doctor’s office is dreaded and if I am being completely honest, desperately avoided and put off.  First off, it requires, I shower and pretend to be put together so I can feel a little less “gross” while in public and in the waiting room.  And then I need to make sure I pack enough tissues, something to be sick into, etc.  And if you are really sick, driving really is not the best thing to be doing (I personally have taken off a side view mirror on my car backing out of my garage while attempting to drive when I should have been home, sick in bed. The only time I have ever wrecked my car!).  And lastly, who enjoys sitting in a waiting room with a bunch of other sick people waiting for a nurse to call your name…?!?!  All I want is to be in bed!  Well I am happy to say that Amwell is here to SAVE THE DAY… you can have a doctor appointment from the comforts of your own home!  Yes, let me repeat that, FROM YOUR HOME! In your PJ’s you have worn for the past 3 days.  Snuggled up in your bed.   With no one staring because you have tissue shoved up your nose…  Amwell is a telehealth service that makes visiting a doctor accessible through video chat from your computer, cell phone or tablet!
