It’s 10 o’clock at night. Everything besides the emergency room is closed and one of your three child wakes up with a fever and a rash. You’re hubby is working overnights. What do you do?
Or maybe you are feeling weak, coughing, and can’t get out of bed. How are you supposed to get yourself to the doctor?
What if I told you that now, with Doctor On Demand – a mobile app – you can have a 15 minute doctor consultation via telephone or video call for $40?
I am telling you, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread! (Isn’t that like a really old saying our grandparents and parents used to say!?)
At 10 o’clock at night, I can tell you that I have checked the app (for research purposes) and have found upwards of 3 doctors online at one time. It is nice to know that there is a doctor at my fingertips that late at night (especially when you have kids!)
Doctor On Demand is co-founded by Jay McGraw (Dr. Phil’s son) and Dr. Phil himself is an advisor of Doctor On Demand.
Doctor On Demand has US, licensed physicians that are board certified, have years of experience, and have had a background check before joining Doctor On Demand.
Doctor On Demand is convenient so you can get an appointment immediately (rather than wait days or weeks to be seen) or you can schedule an appointment for a more convenient time.
You can make the call via telephone (audio only) or you can do a video call with the doctor.
When we made the call, are video calling feature was not working, but we were able to see our doctor – he just could not see us. Fortunately, we were able to snap a picture in the app and upload it to our doctor so he could see the issue even though we weren’t video calling.
Our doctor was polite, professional, and thorough with our inquiry. (To be honest, I think he was nicer than my usual primary care physician and for me, the cost was the same as going to my primary care physician!)
Doctor On Demand is not for life threatening illnesses or injuries, broken bones, chest pain, or seizures, but is great for cold, cough, flu, allergies, rash, pink eye, asthma, pediatric questions, prescription refills or referrals to specialists (this would have came in real handy in January when hubby ended up at the doctor 3 times and the urgent care on the fourth visit – it would have saved us a lot of money!)
You can find other uses for Doctor On Demand as well as an overview of the app itself.
If you use the app, please make sure to use code LAL14 to get $10 off your call.
