In it’s infancy, the medical profession, before hospitals and medical clinics, Doctors made house calls. If you or someone in your family was ill the Doctor would come to your house and treat you.
Major and minor surgery was done in homes, even babies were born at home. I can’t begin to tell you all of the conveniences of being able to talk to a board certified Medical Doctor from the convenience of your own home. But, I can tell you talking to a doctor in your home or on the go for non-emergency medical issues is no longer a thing of the past with Doctor on Demand.
Do you have questions about the recent measles outbreak or wondering if your child’s cold symptoms could be the flu? Not to sound like a cliche, but their is an App. for that. The Doctor on Demand App. is available on iOS, Android or you can speak to a Doctor right from your computer if you have a working microphone and webcam. Users simply launch the Doctor on Demand App. and speak to a licensed physician for a face-to-face visit or consultation. That’s right, get your non-emergency medical questions answered by a board certified licensed in the U.S. physician, psychologist or lactation specialist and not an intern or medical student.
Recently I’ve had some concerns and questions about my overall health that I’ve been googling and asking a few friends about. Now that I have health insurance I am able to be seen and treated by a physician, but unfortunately my appointment isn’t until the middle of March, 2015. So, now my dilemma is, do I go to emergency or urgent care regarding my concerns or do I just wait until March?
I decided not to wait until my appointment or go sit in the emergency room for hours with really sick people coughing and sneezing all around me. Instead, I decided to uses Doctor on Demand. I simply logged into the website from my computer, answered a few basic questions and before I knew it I was talking face to face to a real live medical doctor.
Doctor Amy was nice, friendly and professional. Dressed in my pajamas sitting in bed I further expounded to Doctor Amy my current symptoms. She asked me a few more questions and in no time I was given a diagnosis and my prescription was called in to my pharmacy of choice. The entire Doctor on Demand video visit took less than 10 minutes. No gas was used, I didn’t have to venture out into the cold and mounds of snow, I didn’t even have to change out of my pajamas!
My experience using the Doctor on Demand App. was 5 Star. It was quick, convenient and definitely a service I will use again. Whether you have health insurance or not, the Doctor on Demand App. streamlines the doctor, patient visit. No waiting in the waiting room then to wait again in the exam room and then wait again for your prescription.
