As moms we all know, the worse feeling in the world is to have a sick child. We are suppose to protect and care for our children and when they get sick, it’s like all bets are off. Transporting a sick child out into the cold elements is another feat within itself. But, wait what if you could call a doctor, see a doctor, talk to a doctor and get a prescription or medical advice without leaving your home, would you do it?
For the past few months I’ve been caring for my foster child who is only two years old. For about a month now she’s had a runny nose, sneezing and a cough. I’ve been giving her fluids and just monitoring her overall health. Then, out of now where at around 3:30 a.m. she woke up crying with a high fever. My husband was at work and my own kids were either gone or asleep. My first thought was to wake up the household, call my husband from work and get to the ER or Urgent care ASAP.
Then, I remembered about the Amwell app.
When you use the Amwell online platform your medical issues are addressed very quickly. Simply download the App, view the available Doctors, all who are board certified and have 10-15 years experience and then choose the Doctor of your choice. Easy Peasy.
The site is extremely easy to navigate and the Doctors are friendly and professional. The best thing about the Amwell site is the Doctor’s are available 24/7. No waiting until business hours. The folks at Amwell know accidents,fevers/mishaps can happen anytime of the day so they’re available to assist you with diagnosing, follow ups, medication prescriptions and refills.
I use the Amwell app, spoke with a Board Certified Pediatrician who calmed my fears and explained to me, sometimes kids wake up with fevers. While fevers can be indicative of something more, with kids they don’t have to be. I was able to give my daughter some over the counter medication I already had in the house and she’s been fine. My husband was able to stay at work and the rest of the family was able to sleep uninterrupted.
