We live in an on-demand world with our gadgets and such, right? It’s only befitting that we are now able to dial up our Doctor On demand right?
I wrote a post about the germs that are bound to come home any day now because well, kids are nasty and they spread germs. There’s absolutely no sugar coating it. Now, depending on what germs your adorable little ones bring home days after you posted your first day of school photos, they will come home with something. It happens every year in my home. Not one sniffle, cough, tummy ache, or itch all summer long, but the day school starts….we have 3-7 days before it hits.
But who has time to drop everything they’re doing, take a day or half day off of work to run the kids to the doctor’s office super early before regular office hours start? In my doctor’s office, they take the kids without appointments before 9 a.m. If you can’t get there before then, you’re wasting your time. Not to mention that I just learned my kid’s pediatrician left her practice.
The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I just learned about Doctor on Demand which brings the doctor to you. Parents no longer have to brush teeth, shower, get dressed (best of all), or leave the house to see the doctor. How cool is this?! Doctors are available to treat the common back to school issues like cold/cough, sore throat, flu, skin issues/rashes, pink eye, and vomiting/diarrhea. You can also speak with a psychologist in the privacy of your own home.
One of my kids developed what appeared to be a little rash so instead of pulling them out of class for about 2 hours to visit our pediatrician, I was able to use my special code VALLEYSTREAM, which you too can use for your first visit, and it took no time to get some feedback. The experience was easy, convenient and I think I’m already hooked.
Before foe Doctor appeared, I was asked a few questions like patient name, DOB, allergies, medications….you know the stuff typically asked. There was a short pause, then a message saying the doctor was reviewing the chart. And then I was face to face with the Doctor. I was in my kitchen. He was in his living room in scrubs!
My call took just under 15 minutes and I was satisfied. I had questions about a reoccurring issue but given that my son wasn’t with me nor did I have a photo of the symptom, he could not provide me with a prescription. I did get many questions answered and was just as satisfied.
This is revolutionary!
Visits range from $40-$95 based on your need. They even have lactation consultants! And yes, medical insurance is accepted but check to make sure your employer or plan has a relationship with them first.
