     When we get sick, we hate having to go to the doctors, right? I know the last thing I want to do is get dressed, and go wait in a waiting room full of other people who feel as bad as I do. Amwell can help! 
     This is an amazing service that allows you to visit the doctor's office from the privacy of your own home. All you need is a smart phone or a computer and you will be on your way to feeling better with the help of their amazing doctors. 
     I personally tried out the Amwell service and was incredibly impressed. My little man had been complaining about a sore nose for a couple days, and it was causing him to cry. I got my phone, downloaded the Amwell app, and chose the doctor I wanted to speak with. The great part is, you get a selection of available doctors and their specialties. From there, it is your choice who you want to make your appointment with. Within a few minutes, I was chatting with a pediatrician and telling her what was ailing my little one. In the end, she couldn't do much over the phone since the issue was too far up in his nasal cavity for her to see. So, she referred us to our pediatrician or emergency room.
     This is an incredible service to have on hand. It is so much more convenient than making an appointment and going to a doctor's office when you get hurt or have a cold. As with my son's issue, the service does have limitations. They are not able to look into dark body cavities like noses and ears. So, they are limited to only what they can view by screen. 
     The doctors you have an appointment at Amwell with are actual doctors. This is a true appointment just like one you would have at any office. They ask the same sort of questions and get to know you just as your doctor would. Your health insurance may even cover telehealth visits! 
     This is an affordable and convenient service that is perfect for families. When two parents are working, it is sometimes difficult to find the time to visit a typical office. Amwell allows you to make an appointment and put your mind at ease with the press of a few buttons. It is an incredible service that comes in handy no matter where you are. With summer travel here, and families far away from their usual doctors, this is an affordable way to get trusted medical advice. If you find yourself in a situation where you need a prescription, Amwell doctors are able to take care of that for you. 
     Next time you are feeling icky, instead of heading to the doctor's office, pick up your phone and get the Amwell app! You will be so happy you did! Use the code MOMSLOVEAMWELL and your first visit is FREE!!!
