Best Online Doctor Visit Ever! Just In Time for Mental Health Awareness Month!
This online doctor visit was sponsored by Doctor On Demand, but all opinions are my own!
Ever since my fibromyalgia diagnosis years ago, it has been hard to live my life, let alone find time that I am not exhausted enough to go to the doctor. It’s been a vicious cycle of insomnia, pain, and sleeping too much since I’ve been diagnosed. Some days are good, some days are meh ok, and some days I literally don’t get out of bed all day. Thank goodness I can work from my bed, and get a great online doctor visit right from my couch!
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Doctor on Demand is partnering up to make sure moms every where take care of themselves! It’s becoming more and more common to find out how common mental health issues are (one out of five adults have one)! Sadly more than half of those affected won’t receive help because of lack of access!
I see so many specialist that when I need to see a regular doctor for things like bronchitis, a cold, or the flu I usually just suck it up and deal with things at home. Quite frankly I’ve spent years seeing if my specialist will write my prescriptions for my mental health issues just because I could never make it into a psychiatrist! Thanks to Doctor on Demand virtual doctor’s visits, I don’t have to do that anymore!
Doctor on Demand is this cool new online doctor visit website where you can “visit” the doctor right from the comfort of my own couch! It was awesome! And just in time for Mental Health awareness month, they are now sharing that you can also visit for mental health issues as well. I’ve been a patient with depression for a long time, and I’m THRILLED that they offer this option. It normally takes months to get into to see a local mental health professional.
The Doctor on Demand platform features real live licensed and board certified doctors 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, so when this girl gets her the cold or flu and wants to see if a doctor can help her out, I can just log into my Doctor on Demand account and see what doctors are available at that time.
The visit itself was great! It took me less than ten minutes to sign up for my account, select my local pharmacy, and find a doctor online that was available to chat with me about my overall health. I couldn’t even get ready to go to the doctor in that amount of time.
During the visit, I did a quick test to make sure my camera, microphone, and speakers were working. It was in “queue” waiting for a doctor less than five minutes! Talk about lightning fast!
Dr. Tomlison was the doctor that helped me, and he was very friendly, thorough and was able to let me know next time I was feeling under the weather I could log on and chat with Doctor on Demand and they would prescribe things to help me get better fast!. From start to finish, it all took less than 15 minutes!
When you are like me and are too tired and too busy to spend all your time running to the doctor, it’s really nice to have such a quick and easy option literally at your fingertips. With the amount of life I have wasted in my doctor’s offices over the last couple of months, I am seriously considering switching the easy stuff to the Doctor on Demand doctors!
Doctor on Demand visits are only $75 per 15 minute session, and you can also include if you do or don’t have insurance, or if your work will cover your visit! Whether you just have a quick questions about a child who is ill, or if you want to ask a doctor about mental health issues, you can reach doctors any time you need to with a minimum wait time.
For our family, not getting answers quickly was one part of the problem, but the rest of it was that we were spending SO much time in waiting rooms and getting to doctor’s appointments. Things like Doctor on Demand would’ve been a Gods’ send when I was getting diagnosed with fibromyalgia or when my daughter was so sick with her allergies a few years ago. So, you know if we are convinced this service rocks you should check it out too!
