I still can't believe that next Thursday is Thanksgiving.  Boy, did the year really fly by.  It seems like once the girls headed back to school, that the weeks flew by in a blink of an eye. Hopefully, in the coming weeks, though, we will be able to slow down a bit and enjoy the holidays with family and friends, before saying goodbye to 2019 and hello to 2020.   I, for one, love looking at the pictures on my phone of girls of memories we have made so far in 2019, and want to add many below fun memories (without illness) before we ring in the new year.  

This year both of my girls were tall enough to ride the "big kid" rides at the amusement park :-)

Nothing better than having the heated hotel pool all to yourself

Surprise day trip to Boston to see a show and dinner afterwards

Family movie nights are always best! :-)

Now that the tree is up, we wait for Santa 

All these wonderful memories I just shared couldn't have happened if my girls weren't feeling well.  I am glad that this summer for a few minor urgent care calls to Amwell, we were able to enjoy ourselves and make so many great memories.  As we prep for the upcoming holidays I wanted you to share an amazing deal that the folks at Amwell offered me, that I wanted to pass along to my readers, as you never know when you will need to be seen by a doctor for an urgent care matter.  And, the sooner you get your urgent care matter taken care of, the sooner you will be back to making lasting memories with your family and friends.

Before I share the 50% off your urgent care visit with an Amwell doctor, I wanted to share briefly what Amwell is, and why you should bookmark their website and/or download the Amwell app to your phone, so you have it handy and ready when you need urgent care for yourself, or a loved one.

I first stumbled across Amwell a few years back when my youngest had a reaction to immunization shots she got at the pediatrician's office.  She was given the shots on a Friday afternoon, and by Friday evening, her poor leg had swollen and was with red blotchy patches due to an allergic reaction to one of the shots.  Being a relatively new mom and not having my mom close by to show or ask for advice, I called the pediatrician's office.  It was after hours and I was only able to speak to a nurse on the phone.  She said I could bring my daughter in the next morning to be looked out, or if I thought it was serious, i could take her to ER.  My daughter wasn't having any breathing difficulties, or issues beyond the red, hot rash and swelling on her leg.  The nurse suggested a cold compress and benadryl, which I did.  But, as the night went on, she grew more uncomfortable and I found myself doing what no parent should do in the middle of the what could be wrong.  I started to worry myself more, and wondered who else I could call or seek advice from. That is when Amwell popped up on my computer.  I looked at their website and saw the list of urgent care cases they see, and thought this was the better option than heading to the ER and paying a large bill for what could be a minor issue, or waiting until the AM and hoping that she could be seen at the pediatrician's office.  I wanted peace of mind and for my daughter to get some relief so we both could sleep. 

Within a few moments, I had the Amwell app downloaded on my phone and had created an account.  I also uploaded photos of the rash and described the symptoms she was having, so that they could connect me to a Amwell doctor who could help.  Moments later I was talking face to face through my phone with a Amwell doctor. She was able to see my daughter's rash and talk to her, and under 10 minutes she brought relief to my urgent care matter.  

Just like what the nurse from the pediatrician's office had said, it was just a reaction to the shots, and to give benadryl, a cold compress and pain medicine.  She also had me use a pen and draw a circle around the rash so that I could see if it grew any bigger, at which time I was told to go straight to the ER. But, after talking with the Amwell daughter, my mind was put at ease, and my daughter was drifting off to sleep in my arms.  And, when I looked down at her rash, it wasn't as red anymore, and the swelling was going done.  That night I not only saved myself an unnecessary ER bill and my sanity as a mom stressing over my daughter's health, but I also found a great online doctor service that I continue to use to this day.  

Doctors visit with the girls are always a challenge as they don't want to sit still and want to play with everything in site. Then, when the doctor comes in to examine in, they go mute and don't want to talk. Ugh. I wasn't sure how Bella would handle a virtual doctor's visit with one of the Amwell doctors, but was happy to find that she was more at ease and calming, being in her own home.  And, instead of looking for expensive medical equipment to play around with, she was able to grab her favorite toy and sit on my lap, as she answered questions from the very personable doctor.  Not only did Bella feel at ease with the doctor, but I did as well.  I didn't find the doctor rushing to get to the next patient.  She was very thorough in her exam and looking over the photos I shared with her of how the area was spreading from the day before.  The doctor answered all my questions and put me at ease when she said that it was just a reaction and not something that required immediate medical attention. Instead, she told me to apply hydro cortisone to the irritated area to prevent Bella from scratching at it, as she suffers from eczema.  She also told me to give her Benadryl and to monitor her temperature as she may get a fever off and on the next few days and give her Tylenol to reduce the fever, until the allergic reaction clears up -- which ended up happening. 

This summer I used the Amwell app again for a spider bite rash my oldest daughter had on her arm, and then just the other day, I found myself calling an Amwell doctor to ask about a rash I noticed on my arm that seemed to appear out of nowhere, while I was out at a homeschool class with my girls, that was four hours long.  I ended up going back to my car to call an Amwell doctor and found it was just a contact dermatitis rash that I either got from my husband switching up the laundry detergent from a free and clear one to a fragrant one, or while trying on clothes at the store earlier int the day.  However I got the rash, I was able to get it diagnosed in a matter of minutes, without having to step foot in a doctor's office. Many of my friends and family have been sharing online about how their kids are sick with stomach bugs, the flu or a head cold, and how the doctor's offices are overbooked or filled with sick patients. That doesn't sound like fun, or the place I want to be myself or with my family, especially with the holidays fast approaching. We have so many fun day trips planned like ice skating and snow tubing up north, staying in hotel to swim in the heated pool, while it snows outside, and doing a few day trips to Boston and NYC to see the holiday window displays and lights.  The last thing we want is to be sick, or waiting in a busy doctor's office to be seen.  If we do end up needing an urgent care matter addressed, I know that an Amwell doctor will be ready and able to help, without costing me a fortune.

As a parent to two young children, I am so happy that there is an online doctor service like Amwell available to me, 24 hours a day. I now have the option to either take them to their pediatrician or stay home and meet with a board certified Amwell doctor who will provide a thorough exam and review of symptoms of our urgent care matters, while easing both my daughter and my concerns, in the comfort of our own home.  If you find yourself or a family member not feeling well, and it is the weekend and you don't have urgent care centers in your area, or you simply don't want to pay the crazy co-pays for non-emergency medical concerns, why not give Amwell a try?  Want to save 50% off on your urgent care visit with an online Amwell doctor? Keep reading to get your special promo code to use with your first Amwell visit.

From now on, when the girls wake in the night or in the AM not feeling well, I can decide based on their symptoms if we need to see their local pediatrician, or simply pull out my phone or laptop and have an on-demand doctor's visit with a board certified Amwell doctor.  

Here are some of the reasons why people continue to use Amwell, instead of going to see a doctor in person...

  • "Lower cost. Consumers expect online visits to be cost-savers; with in-office visits costing, on average, $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book, Amwell offers a $49 physician visit – a savings of $33.  Great option for students in college looking for cost-effective healthcare or those between jobs and without insurance.
  • Accessibility.  After hours, on weekends and in the middle of the night (24/7/365) availability.  Great for those who do have transportation or when you don’t feel well enough to drive and those who are newly relocated and don’t have providers yet.
  • Convenience.  Consumers are looking for a faster appointment.  Now they don’t need to schedule an appointment nor do they need to wait to be seen, especially if on vacation or business travel.  The doctor can be seen from the comfort and convenience of their own home.
  • Quick prescriptions. Consumers would rather have an online video visit than an in-office visit to obtain common primary care prescriptions. 
  • Peace of mind. Rather than self-diagnosing or visiting a social forum for medical advice, users can obtain second opinions directly from board certified, licensed doctors."

I, for one, am all for these virtual doctors' visit as they work great especially if you have more than one child at home and don't want to deal with bringing everyone to sick in a crowded doctor's office.  And, with cold and flu season in full worse, a doctor's office is the last place I want to be, as we always seem to pick up germs and bring home more colds and bugs after visiting with the doctor.

So, what are you waiting for?  Get that stubborn cough or flu-like symptoms checked out by a skilled physician without leaving the comfort of your home.  Once you try out Amwell and their on-demand tele-health services, you will see why I and so many other families will be making Amwell top on their list of calls to make when someone in our family is not feeling well and needs to see a doctor.
