Doctor on Demand Just Made My Day!
I am a wife and mother – only the youngest two children are at home but they have special needs and have many appointments that require me to miss work. Then there are issues at school, dental appointments, commitments etc… And that is just their schedule. For me – I have no time to be sick. I just cannot leave work for a doctor’s appointment when I know I will need my personal and vacation time for their needs. And so often if I were to go to the doctor – it is for a cold, flu, pneumonia, allergies, sinus infection, asthma etc… All pretty run of the mill stuff.
Enter Doctor on Demand…
Doctor On Demand is a healthcare service that provides Video Visits with board certified physicians, psychologists, and lactation consultants via smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. As a patient you simply download the Doctor On Demand app on a smartphone or tablet or visit www.doctorondemand.com on your desktop computer, provide a list of your symptoms, any medications you are currently taking and you are instantly connected to a provider licensed in your state for a video visit.
I am thankful this opportunity to review Doctor on Demand came up just as I was actually getting sick. First my son was sick but you know kids – they bounce right back. Me? I have asthma so stuff like the common cold can quickly turn to something more dangerous if I don’t stop it in its tracks as quickly as I can.
In the last week we have had three snow days (missed work) and three delayed opening days (more missed work) due to snow and we are expecting more tonight and on Saturday. The last thing I needed was to be out again for an illness – understandable of course but I definitely didn’t like that option.
Plus – who is at the doctors’ offices? Sick people! So even if I go there with just a sinus infection I could very easily walk out of there exposed to something more dangerous and be incapacitated for a much longer period of time.
I was able to sit in my office during my lunch break, download the Doctor on Demand app, register (FREE), type in my pharmacy choice, my current list of medications – and connect to a doctor. I was connected with Dr. Amy for a 15 minute appointment – though we didn’t need that much time and she did nothing to rush me. The appointment is able to be held as long as you have an internet connection and an applicable device with a camera (such as laptop, ipad, iphone, tablet).
I can tell you without a doubt – I will use this service again. It saved me time, was efficient, didn’t expose me to other germs and allowed me to stay focused on my job.
