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.
