Do you like to visit the doctor? Really, you don’t? I can’t say I’m surprised. I don’t either. That’s why I love Amwell. Thanks to this telehealth company, we can see a doctor at any time of day or night for many illnesses. That means that instead of dragging ourselves or our kids off of the couch and into the office, we can pull up our Amwell app and quickly and easily see a doctor in the comfort of our homes.
Amwell is The Leader in Telehealth
Amwell is no start up company. It’s not a fledgling service. Amwell is the most popular telehealth app in the world. It’s also the first telehealth service to receive accreditation by The American Telemedicine Association. In addition to that, it’s the first telehealth platform to integrate with Apple’s Health App, and it’s the only service that allows you to select the doctor you want to see. This is a full-feature healthcare app, and it’s great.
As if all of that weren’t enough, using Amwell is more cost effective than a traditional doctor’s visit. The average office visit costs around $82.00 according to Healthcare Blue Book, but Amwell offers visits for only $49.00. That’s $33.00 cheaper!
Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which means that no matter what time of day or night that you need to see a doctor, you can. If you don’t have transportation, there’s inclement weather, or you just feel to rotten to get off the couch, you can still see a doctor. And you’ll see a GOOD doctor. Each and every Amwell doctor is board certified with an average of 15 years in practice.
Amwell is also super convenient. Whether you’re on vacation or a business trip, a doctor is always only a smart device away. These board certified physicians can also prescribe medications when required.
Some of the Issues Amwell Doctors Can Address
- Sinus infection
- Sore throat
- Sprains and other strains
- Respiratory infections
- Weight issues
- Helping to stop smoking
My Amwell Experience
Let open with this. I absolutely love Amwell. My daughter had a fever, so I pulled up my Amwell app, and picked a doctor who looked right for me. I had a free visit, and I thought it was the perfect time to use it. Using the promo code MOMSLOVEAMWELL, I met with the doctor of my choice, and he gave my daughter a virtual once over.
After our meeting, the doctor determined that my daughter had a common virus. He prescribed plenty of rest and lots of fluids, as viruses have no treatment except to run their course. He also advised me to use a children’s fever reducer to make my little one more comfortable.
You Can Have an Amwell Experience, Too
I think Amwell is great, and I want you to be able to try it for yourself. You can use the same promo code I did – HASHTAGFREE – to have your own virtual doctor’s appointment. This is a fantastic service that I was really impressed with. So follow this link to download Amwell for yourself and give it a try. I’m sure you’ll love Amwell as much as I do.

I absolutely love this idea. This is so much more convenient than making a trip to the doctor’s office.
I love this whole concept. I think it’s a great idea especially for those with kids, busy work schedules and who just don’t want to sit for hours in a busy, full of sick people waiting room!
Chubskulit Rose says
I have been reading a lot of good reviews about Amwell. I think it is a great program that wil help a lot if families.
This is such a great program. I think this will benefit a lot of people. The name Amwell is popping up everywhere.
I’m still amazed at how awesome this idea is and I’ve been hearing wonderful things about Amwell. Who wants to drag a child with a cold or virus to the doctor’s office? Not me.
Christy Maurer says
I really like this idea for those times when you just can’t get to the doctor. It would really come in handy for when you are on vacation!
I love how easy it is to get medical advice with Amwell. My kids have a habit of getting sick at the worst times and knowing I have access to a doctor from where ever I am is so awesome!
Liz Mays says
Amwell just sounds so convenient. I’m so glad there are consultation options like this available for low prices.
I absolutely love this idea… so convenient
Joanne T Ferguson says
What an interesting service I knew nothing about until today! Thanks for highlighting and I will pass it to my friends who may also benefit from reading your post today!
This sounds like a great service. How great that you can get answers right away. I hate waiting in line at a clinic.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
One of my pet peeves is waiting in line. I am that impatient. Amwell can help me with overcoming this. It is great to be able to speak with a doctor without having to wait in line or get an appointment.
Lori Bosworth says
I think Amwell is a great concept, and I can see telehealth being very common in the future since it saves time and money.
Teleheath is going to be the new waves of medicial assistance! Glad there are services like this to aid in times of need more efficiently!
Life as a Convert says
I need to look into this. It would be a convenient service to have.
Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green says
This is geniu! Thankfully we don’t go to the doctors much beyond a annual check up. However I hear horror stories of people waiting to see a doctor in the ER and this is totally the answer.
I like the Amwell service. I think it could be useful for so many things!
Kelly Hutchinson says
We actually used the Amwell service a few weeks ago My daughter had a rash and it looked pretty bad. We were even able to get a prescription for it!
lisa @bitesforbabies says
I’ve never heard of this but I think it’s a great concept!!!
Yona Williams says
I’ve definitely been hearing good things about Amwell, and it’s something that could really help me in the future.
This really is such a great service! My daughter was sick afew weeks ago and we tried this out. Unfortunately for her the doctor thought it was her ears that were the issue so we ended up taking her to the doctor and he was right. Ear infection :-/ good thing is that they didn’t charge us since the doctor couldn’t help! Thought that was pretty cool!
I love amwell. They’re my new favorite way to see the dr.
I talked to them before and LOVED it. It was so easy to use and fast.
Uplifting Families says
I am happy to see these type of apps pop up. I don’t like dragging everyone to the doctor sometimes. I will definitely give this a try.
Chasity Boatman says
That’s great that it’s so cost effective. The service seems like a great one.

This company sounds amazing. I have an Amwell freebie, but I have yet to use it. Not sure what I am saving it for, but I guess I will know when the time is right.
Nickida Stephens says
This is such an easy and efficent idea. I love how much time using a service like this can save.
Rebecca Swenor says
Amwell sounds like an amazing convenience for many. I love the list here of what issues the doctors can address. It surely beat going into the hospital or office. Thanks for sharing.
