See a Doctor Anytime with the Amwell App + Free Visit Code #momsloveamwell ad

Disclosure: I participated in the Amwell blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.

Most of us don’t have time to be ill, but unfortunately life happens and we inevitably end up with illnesses or injuries. Many of us try to avoid taking the time to see our doctor to be diagnosed and treated properly. American Well (Amwell) has taken technology to provide people with modern conveniences for people’s busy lives. Amwell is the largest telehealth company that connects users with board certified, licensed doctors for assistance. 




Our busy lives makes doctor visits quite a chore and if you’re like me struggling with balancing family and work, my health concerns don’t always get the attention that it needs. Amwell is a great solution, providing access to doctors 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No more having to wait until my doctor’s office opens or worrying about having to go to urgent care and wait for hours when my doctor is closed. With Amwell I can see a doctor anytime using my iPhone or iPad. Amwell brings healthcare to my home. I can ask questions and get information on many symptoms and even get a prescription. 



Like most people I was concerned about the quality of the doctor care that I would receive in using this service, but doctors on Amwell are board certified with an average of 15 years in practice. Additionally, Amwell takes privacy very seriously and the doctor is HIPA compliant. Knowing this rested my concerns with the program. 



I simply went to the app store and downloaded the free Amwell app and I was ready to begin. I created a log in for myself and was able to get started.  I love how easy it was to sign up and enter my info and store info for my family. After logging in I had three Amwell categories to select from: Medical, Nutrition and Psychology. Based on my needs Amwell provides a list of available doctors to choose from.  By selecting a doctor I was able to get a brief description of the doctor and their experience. After I find a doctor I like I simply select the preset categories to describe my needs/symptoms and click through. I love how simple the app is to use making it even more convenient. The doctor can diagnose, suggest a follow up and prescribe what they feel is appropriate. 



The costs are comparable to in-office visits, but even more convenient and not needing any appointments. Amwell is also accepted by major insurers so all you have to do is enter your health insurance information in for a low cost visit. With Amwell, I’m able to rest easier not having to self diagnose by looking things up myself and I can even get treated. 



Amwell's use of technology has afforded me the convenience I need at the touch of my fingers. 

For all new users Amwell offers a free first visit by using the code: MOMLOVESAMWELL

  1. I like that health care is turning to technology to simplify doctor's "visits." I hate going to a waiting room full of people who are much sicker than I - I am afraid that they are going to make me worse.

  7. That's awesome! I don't have health insurance so it's already really expensive having to go to the regular doctor {which takes weeks to be able to see} so when I need to be seen more quickly we definitely pay a lot for it. This is a great option!

  8. I think this is a great idea! No more long waits in the waiting room to only see the doctor for 5 minutes!

  9. I love this concept, and I think it will get more popular. Many ppl have insurance with high deductibles and for minor problems aren't going to spend way more than they have to if they know about an excellent service like this!
