A great solution to getting well: The flu hit me like a ton of bricks when my husband was going out of town. I care for 3 kids as well as my aging parents and so I needed to get well as soon as possible. The video chat with a professional and courteous physician absolutely made my day. And she sent an Rx directly to my pharmacy. Another huge time saver. Could not be more impressed. Will definitely use again!
I'm a fan for life. I wasn't looking for a virtual doctor. But it fit my need as time was of the essence and I didn't have much of it. Dr. Thompson took charge of my situation of needs and just shined. The experience was both warm and comforting. My experience with Amwell and Dr. Thompson was a comprehensive care solution. And the kicker is I saved both time and money.
Peace of mind, from your own home: The last thing you want to do when you're feeling ill is drag yourself out of the house and off to the doctor. Having the convenience of virtually visiting a qualified doctor in the comfort of your own home is absolutely priceless!
