We have been hit hard this year with the flu. We aren’t the only ones either! This year has been one of those years that the flu is brutal and strong. Many ER hospital waiting rooms are full of people who have the flu. Urgent cares centers report being busier than usual.
I don’t know about you, but when I am sick the VERY last thing I want to do is to sit in a doctor’s waiting room. There are nothing but more germs and sick people sitting around spreading more illness! No thanks, I would rather lay in bed like my body is begging me to.Did you know you can have both? The doctor appointment with out leaving your bed? If you are like me, that is an option that you love.
On call doctor appointments are getting more popular and it’s no wonder why! Have a stomach bug? Caught the cold going around the office? Is the whole family coughing? Are seasonal allergies sneaking up on you again? A doctor is just a phone call away!

I tried out the doctor call service, Amwell and had a great experience. (PS – Use coupon code MOM50 for 25% off your visit!) I got through quickly, even during this busy cold and flu season! I was able to talk to a licensed MD without leaving my home. No scheduling, getting dressed up, navigating to a doctor appointment or waiting in the lobby. It’s so simple and efficient.
How to get a doctor through the Amwell App:
- Download the Amwell App on your phone (links above for Apple/Google)

- Choose a medical service (children’s, urgent, specialist, etc.)
- Choose a doctor
That is all it takes to make an appointment with a active doctor on Amwell. The doctors are certified primary care and specialist physicians, plus there are even licensed behavioral therapists and registered dietitians you can visit now or schedule an appointment with.
After having a rough stomach all day, I was able to chat with the doctor at 7:30PM – when my doctor’s office would have normally been out of hours. I talked to him about some of my gut health concerns and he gave me some advice about diets and eliminating food. He told me about the levels of dairy and how different levels are harsher than others. He told me I should follow up with my PCP about further action, like testing for allergies.
Why I prefer Amwell:
- Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company
- Doctor appointments are immediate and live
- Amwell doctors are available 24 hours
- It’s easy to set up an account
- Cost is $59 or you can enter your health insurance information
- I had a great experience with the app
Having medical providers on hand through this convenient phone app is the newest reality, and I love it! Now, I see myself reaching for my phone if there is a minor illness or injury in my family. It just makes life easier and is so practical before we head into the medical office.
