American Well is wonderful for anyone that needs to see a doctor. You even get to pick the doctor! They have a list of available doctors in your state, you can read reviews and their backgrounds before deciding which one is best for you. You can see your doctor over the web or using the app they have available. All of their doctors are local and licensed in your state. You will have 10 minutes with your doctor with the option to buy more as needed. The best thing is they are available 24/7. This service should not be used for emergencies, you should go to the emergency room for these. American Well is designed to be a private, secure, HIPAA-compliant tool that allows you to safely and confidentially consult with a doctor online.
Have you ever had a doctor/nurse call and tell you they need you to make an appointment to discuss your bloodwork, x-ray, or another test results? In the next sentence you cannot get in for at least a few weeks. I have and it can be stressful. You can look online and by the time you are done it could be a cold or you have 2 months to live. No one needs to put themselves through this. A lot of doctor’s office have online access for you to see results of tests. Usually numbers the normal person does not understand. But what if you could get online and say ok I am worried and need to know right now what this might mean. With your results in hand, or maybe an order for a test, you can speak to a doctor and find out what your doctor is most likely worried about. No more searching and finding all the wrong information.
What about being so busy at work that there is no way of taking time out for a doctor appointment and you hate going to urgent care? You know you are not feeling well and just need to know how to fix it the quickest way possible! The American Well doctors can send a prescription to your pharmacy for you, if needed! Wow is that a time saver or what!
Are your parents getting up in age and you just do not understand what they have told you about their doctor’s visit? Are you between jobs and do not have insurance but really need to speak to a doctor? Have you just moved to the area and have not found a doctor yet?
There are lots of reasons to see a doctor online, whatever the reason American Well has made it easy!
Below is a screenprint of some of the insurance companies they work with. There are more so please check this list.
They have more that physicians, they also have Nutritionists that can help you. They can help with diets for new diabetes patients, pregnant or breastfeeding woman, people on chemo, and lots more. They can help you find a better way to eat healthier.
They also have trained and certified Therapists online! They can help with depression, stress, sleep issues, and a whole list of other issues. This is a confidential service so no one needs to know if you do not want them to.
Well today I had a chance to use American Well today. I am going out of town for 2 days and I think I have a kidney infection. I have been trying cranberry juice for 3 days and it is still there. So let’s see what happened.
You will fill in the payment information like below, look at the bottom of the post to see a great coupon code to use here for a free visit.
You can pick a doctor from the choices of who it available. You may have to wait but at the most is 10 minutes.
They have a video for you to understand what will happen during your visit. You can click the box at the bottom and they will text you when the doctor is available.
This is what your screen will look like when the doctor is ready.
So you would normally just speak to the doctor and he/she will talk to you. I had trouble so she called me to finish the visit.
Because I was going to be gone we both decided it would be best to get started on an antibiotic, then see my doctor if it does not improve.
It was late here so I will pick up the prescription tomorrow.
When the visit is over you can rate the doctor and your overall experience,
If you need to you can send your summary to someone.
I have to say my husband was shocked. He did not know this even existed. It was easy, fast, and free for the first time with the code below.
