|What will you see with Amwell?|
In the big picture on your screen (seen in my screenshot above), you will see your online doctor.
In the bottom right, you will see yourself. The sidebar will be a transcript of your conversation.
I'm thinking it will be perfect for flu season. Inevitably everyone catches the flu at least once each season in our house. Having to drag them (or yourself) out to the doctor's office when they (or you) don't feel good at all, because you want/need an excused absence (i.e., doctor's excuse) can be a pain. Now you won't have to... your visit can be right there in the convenience of your own home, while the kids are cozied under their blankets and getting some well needed rest.
Using Amwell is really very simple, and it's perfect for moms (and dads) for all kinds of things. You can use it for information, advice, answering a question, etc. It would be perfect for new moms who really want to have a question answered, but don't want to take their newborn or little one out of the house to have to seek the advice. . My little (now big) girl fell off of the couch once where she was sleeping (before she could roll over on her own!!). She bumped her head on the coffee table next to it, and I was a nervous wreck. I took her to the doctor, where I was told I'd already done all I could do (an ice pack to the head), and just to observe her behavior and not let her sleep for awhile, to be safe. I could have gotten all of that information from home, and instantly, if I'd have used Amwell.
It would be perfect for moms of toddlers too, especially when they're experiencing something new. I remember freaking out when my child came home with a 'your class has someone with lice in it.' note. I was a young mom then, and that note about sent me over the edge (lol, don't fault me, I really was young). ;) If Amwell had been around back then, it surely would have saved me a lot of grief.

When it's your turn to talk, your doctor will appear on the screen. Your picture will be on the lower bottom right corner. On the right of the screen you will see a real time transcript of what you are saying to each other. You can see and hear your doctor, and he or she can hear and see you. It is like having a real conversation, via your electronic device.
Everything is smooth and easy to do, even for the computer novice. This is a service I can see myself using time and time again. The convenience is second to none, the doctors are board-certified, and you can use this service on your phone, tablet, or computer.
Amwell offers traditional physician services, as well as visits to a therapist or a Dietician. The fees are reasonable, the doctor is 'in' 24 hours a day, and no appointment is needed. I have used this service before and I know I will use it again.
You can learn more about Amwell by visiting their website.
All Mail4Rosey readers can get one free visit to experience Amwell on their own. You're welcome. :)

I encourage you to give it a whirl. I think once you've tried it, you'll find that it really is convenient for a myriad of things that you might come across.
Now I have a question for you. Can you see yourself using an Amwell online physician, therapist, and/or Dietician?
