2 weeks ago, we woke up to 2 sick kids. They had tummy aches and mild fevers. It worried me enough to take them to the emergency room when we couldn't get in with our pediatrician that day. We spent a chunk of our morning there to hear it was a virus, to keep them hydrated and on a bland diet.
My poor son cannot catch a break. One week from his return to school from his previous illness and he was running a fever and complaining of stomach pains, which later in the day turned to an upset tummy. Followed by the onset of a cough, runny nose, and sore throat.
I debated the situation for a moment. Did I risk taking him back to the emergency room where he would be exposed to even more germs? Nah, I used Amwell on my mobile device.
This was by far the simplest doctors appointment we have ever had. I filled in a few details and within a moment I was able to select a doctor from several available. After about an 8 minute wait, we were in a video chat with the doctor. That sure beats an emergency room wait or even the wait at the pediatrician's office!
I explained his symptoms to the doctor, who asked a few questions and then issued a prescription for some antibiotics with instructions on how to administer and relieve the upset stomach that sometimes occurs with such a medication.
The visit took about 7 minutes. That seems short, but the doctor was efficient, he listened to the symptoms, he took a course of action and we were done. I thought the process was great. It was so much easier than taking my kids out in the cold to the next city over for the doctor, waiting, dealing with the car seats and all of that fun stuff that comes with a trip with the kids.
