I love to travel
But you already know that. I’ve been to all corners of the US, from Ogunquit, ME down to Key West, FL, from SanDiego, CA to Seattle, WA. I’ve been hang gliding in The Outer Banks and met with celebrities in Hollywood. I can probably name every restaurant on Federal Hill in Providence, RI and have driven from Vail to Tahoe through the mountains.
I usually have the BEST time when I’m gone
But, what happens when I am not feeling quite right and I’m out of town? My doctors are all in Florida and I’m skiing with hubby in New Hampshire…what do I do?
Yes, I pack the over the counter essentials
But, what happens if I need more than 2 aspirin and a good night’s sleep?
I turn to my cell phone
YOUR CELL PHONE? You ask. Yes
The Amwell App
Whether you have an iPhone or Android (like me) a doctor is available to take your call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. If I’m in the mountains, I don’t have to worry if there is an urgent care center nearby, because I have one in my pocket. I simply downloaded the Amwell app from Google Play (I have a Google phone) and a doctor is available anywhere I am in the US.
I have used Amwell to take care of a sinus infection while on a snow trip and a UTI when I had a red carpet event. I got the care I needed right from my hotel room and followed up with my personal doctor when I got home.
At home or on the go
It’s like having a personal doctor that’s with you all the time for those minor emergencies you’d normally go to urgent care for…and because they’re open 24/7 you can call in the middle of the night, early morning or ANY time. You even get to choose the doctor you want to see from an available list when you call. The face to face visit makes it feel like going to your own doctor, without the drive…wait…and drive home.
My husband LOVES it too
He has used the app twice. It’s great for people like him who really have a difficult time with going to the doctor. He had been fighting a cold and he was now dealing with a bad cough. The doctor went over all of his current medications with him as well as any conditions he has. The doctor sent the prescription straight to the pharmacy where I picked it up and it allowed him to sleep through the night without waking up from coughing.
Tis the Season
It’s cold and flu season and it’s easy to prepare. Wash your hands often and download the Amwell App on your mobile phone. You’re only a call away from seeing a doctor face to face.
