Did you know medicine has caught up with the latest technology? It has, and it is easy affordable and as close as your nearest device. It’s called Amwell, and it is a busy mom’s saver of time, money and HERSELF!
Being a mom is a stressful, wonderful, delightful, hectic existence. Add on the holidays, basketball practice, a birthday party, a sore throat, dry cough and suddenly your life is turned upside down. Let’s face it, with carpooling, household and personal errands, once I get home and put on my pajamas the thought of going back out of the house is like shouting in my ears. It’s a lot involved when I leave out the house. It’s not always easy to just get up and go. Any business I can take care of from the comforts of home, I DO.
Amwell is the nations largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians and psychologist for immediate and live, online visits- day or night, on either mobile or desktop. In fact, Amwell was created by Doctors! It’s available 24 hours a day in 46 states. Keep in mind, Amwell is not in lieu of annual doctors visits, or scheduled appointments. Amwell is available for minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills, and chronic condition management.
Recently, I was diagnosed with an enlarged uterus, fibroid tumors, chronic anemia and an ovarian cyst. Sounds like a mouthful but really everything will be taken care of with just one surgery. I’ve been screened for cancer and my test don’t indicate any cancer. Yayyy!!! But, I can’t have the surgery until my hemoglobin levels improve. My doctor prescribed iron tablets taken three times a day. I decided to speak with an Amwell doctor to get additional information on my diagnosis. Often times when we’re diagnosed with certain conditions your friends and family often say, “get a second opinion.”
The Amwell doctor I spoke with was, female, attended Wayne State University and she was American. She also was having trouble with her camera and I couldn’t see her but I could hear her and she could see and hear me. I explained to her my diagnosis, my doctors plan of care and some of the concerns I had. She was very informative explaining to me about the the swelling I’ve been having in my legs since the summer. I had no idea it was directly related to my enlarged uterus, but she did. She also gave me some dialog and alternative options to talk over with my doctor. In fact, our conversation went the full 30 minute allotted visit. During the whole time I felt informed, and I felt like I was speaking with someone who was truly vested in my well-being. A second opinion via my phone, who knew?
