American Well: The Doctor will see you NOW

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Well.
All opinions and outcomes are true and of my own.

Have you ever had a medical symptom or issue that you were too embarrassed to talk to your family doctor about?
Or maybe it’s something you want to know the answer to immediately, it’s in the middle of the night, and/or you’re on vacation and would like to speak to someone right away but you’re not sure who to call.

That’s where American Well and its health related service come in.

Did you know that over half of all doctor visits can be completed without even stepping foot in a clinic?

Without going into long personal details, I had something come up that I wanted a second opinion on. The medicine prescribed was only alleviating the pain, it wasn’t really telling me what’s going on. By signing up with American Well, I was able to describe my symptom(s), explain my past medical history and any chronic illnesses I may or may not have all by the computer.
I opted out of video chat because I was at work and didn’t want to enable the webcam on a work computer, but I was able to see the physician live, and talk to her via chat text message.

In a matter of 10 minutes, the physician from American Well was able to listen to my symptoms and give her own personal medical opinion on what she thinks it may be. She advised me to get a scan done to rule anything out and then try a different pain relief medication if it is in fact the diagnose given and nothing more serious.

Want to know the best thing about getting another physician’s opinion WITHOUT have to step foot in a hospital or doctor’s office? The fact that I could be so personal with a physician in the comfort of my  ownoffice, and NOT have to worry about catching something that’s going around at a clinic. It was surprisingly very easy!

American Well Online Care allows consumers to connect with physicians on demand whenever they have a health need, from their home or office.

Reasons to consider the physicians at American Well…
They’re convenient. I didn’t have to call and schedule an appointment. The doctors at American Well are there when I need them and at the time that works best for me.

They’re reliable. At 24/7, 365 days a year … there’s no excuse why I can’t talk to a doctor about a medical issue. The physicians are available via computer, telephone, smart phone, or tablet. With the free app from the online store, a physician is available when I need them.

It is completely safe. American Well physicians are HIPAA-compliant. Which means they won’t share your information with anyone but you. This means a LOT to me when it comes to certain things (-ahem- my weight).

American Well is committed to delivering an outstanding consumer healthcare experience. They strive to reduce wait times and make access more immediate and convenient. They ensure that we, as patients, have a choice of US Board certified physicians and offer complete transparency into doctors’ backgrounds and ratings. They give US control of our health records – not a third party.

Are you annoyed that every time you go to the hospital or clinic you end up catching something worse than what you were originally seeing the doctor for?
Or maybe you’re too embarrassed to talk to your family physician about a medical issue you’ve been having.
Ever been on vacation and not known who to call when it’s 3AM and the clinics are closed?

American Well is there when WE need them by bringing healthcare to us. So what are you waiting for?
