I do not recommend Amwell, although it sounds convenient it is best to see your local doctor. I have utilized this twice the last Dr. informed me that I was given too much of a medication from the previous Dr. for acne, in which it didn't work and informed me that I would have to see my personal Dr. for any prescription.
This service is absolutely the best. I have been able to use it twice in the last week for two of my kids that had earache, sore throat along with runny nose and congestion at times. Super fast, was able to see the same doctor for both visits and came with an excuse for school. Literally took less than 10 minutes. I would have been at the doctor's office for hours waiting for them to work us I to the filled schedule. Never had to leave my house. Doctor was able to look into my son's throat with good light that we got from right outside. Another added benefit is the cost. With my insurance, we only have to pay a $5 copay. The antibiotic script was sent to my local pharmacy of my choice and was ready in less than 30 minutes after seeing the doctor. I am a registered nurse and I was very impressed and will definitely be spreading the word and recommending this service to my family, friends and coworkers. The one thing I forgot to mention is that the first time takes a little longer due to the fact that you have to set your account up. If you have insurance, make sure that you have your ID number so it can be verified and if you have a copay, it will set that up for you. If you are using a desktop, which I did for the first visit, there is a download and then it test your computer. For the second visit, I used the mobile app, and it worked just as good as the desktop. No problems at all! This service is awesome!
I love this. Waiting in my own home with a sick kid is a lot better than waiting an urgent care or Hospital ER. Very affordable and very efficient. Thank you
I had to leave my home because of hurricane Harvey I was out of my medication and the doctor took care of me the doctor was great it was quick and easy I would highly recommend this site to anyone ! Thank you so much and well I will be using you again if needing a doctor !
Easy to use, easy to be seen! I live ina rural community and I either have to go to the ER or call my doctor and hope he has a cancelation.
Awesome! About time!! In the time it would have taken me to find my keys I had seen doctor Matt Grandstaff (very professional and intuitive, perfect bedside manners- can't imagine a better doctor, he's THAT good) and after a video visit he had diagnosed it to my complete satisfaction and now all I have to do is go pick up my prescriptions he sent in. I asked about a chronic illness and he kindly notified me that this service wouldn't be appropriate for such because of the blood work and monitoring, so it does have its limits, but notwithstanding that caveat it is a wonderful and welcome use of the smartphone to actually make a long tedious process that always had a lengthy wait in some office chair reading Golf magazines a thing of the past. (I hate Golf magazines!)
