Video Chat with a Board Certified Physician for FREE this Month @drondemand

Disclosure: This is a partnered post with Doctor on Demand. All opinions are my own.

Imagine being sick and having to wait for an appointment with your doctor plus tack on the waiting time at the office for a 5 minute face-to-face with the physician. I can't tell you the countless times that this exact scenario has happened to me just to end up with prescription and a high co-pay. Rather than waste my time (which also equates to $ because I end up taking time off from work), imagine video chatting with a Board Certified physician upon minutes of the call?


I do not get sick often. However, just a few weeks ago I fell ill with the flu which also affected my sinuses. I tried to stay "healthy" because who can really rest when a busy mom of two young children? Did you know that this year's flu season is particularly severe? Everyone in our family has gotten the flu shot but each and every one of us has become ill this season. When you have the flu, immediate treatment is required for antivirals to work. Rather than deal with the waiting at the ER, waiting for an appointment with your primary doctor, waiting for days with a sick child, hop onto your smartphone, tablet or computer to access Doctor on Demand for a prompt response from a Board Certified physician! Their physicians can diagnose, treat, and even write prescriptions for the flu and nearly any other non-emergency medical condition.


I downloaded the Doctor on Demand app on my phone and called in regarding my most recent concerns: random outbreak of acne on my forehead, constant hair loss and irregular periods. Dr. Christopher Bailey was thorough in addressing my concerns and offered clear instructions. He advised that I do further testing with my primary care physician of my thyroid and/or reproductive hormones. There are two possible disorders that could be causing such symptoms: Hypothyroidism and Polycystic Ovarian Disease. He also advised of trying an over the counter clenaser to see if it resolves my issue before getting a prescription. What's neat about Doctor on Demand is that you can access a doctor from anywhere at anytime. While I normally wouldn't have gone to the hassle of making an appointment with my doctor regarding my most recent concerns due to time, a quick video chat with Dr. Bailey has given me an answer to why my body has not been quite the same for the past couple of months. A bonus for this neat app is that the doctor gives you a recap of your chat which is available under My Visit History






For less than my co-pay, I can speak to a physician promptly. This is definitely convenient when my kids are sick in the middle of the night and even a return call from the messaging service takes quite some time.

Do you have any health concerns or ailments that you want to get answers to but do not want to deal with the hassle of seeing your primary physician? What do you think about the Doctor on Demand service?
