Amwell is Transforming Medical Care! Try the Online Service for ONE DOLLAR with the Code HEALTHY27

Disclosure: This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are genuine and my own.

Try Amwell for just $1.00!
Amwell is amazing! Why? Because it saves you TONS of time, it's effective, it's user-friendly, and it's affordable. What is it? It's an online service for medical care. Who can use it? Anyone! Come read about my experience, and you'll see why I'm singing Amwell's praises.

Try Amwell for just $1. Really? Really! Keep reading to see how.
Using Amwell is easy. The first thing you do is fill out your personal information, including a telephone number where the doctor can get ahold of you if the call disconnects. Then you'll type in which pharmacy it is close to your home that you use, in case you need a prescription (I did need one and got it very quickly!). You'll connect your call. This can be done via computer or smart phone, iPad, etc., or you if you prefer, you can just have a telephone conversation. 


The service will pull up the providers that are available to talk online. There is always a board certified physician available to speak with you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (yeah, no more doctor's hours to work around, hurray!). Doctors on Amwell have been in business an average of 15 years, so you're also getting experience.




You'll get to choose your doctor. If you only want to speak to a female or male doctor, you can do that, or you can just go with the first provider who becomes available. I went with Dr. Hacking.


He was great! And very patient, with the patient. ;) First and foremost, my microphone decided not to work, so Dr. Hacking could see me, I could hear him, but he couldn't hear me. There is a typing feature you can use, so I was writing things out when he put a finger up to hold on. He called me. ;) Smart man. I explained my symptoms to him, told him my self-diagnosis, and showed him the results of a store-bought test I'd purchased at the store, to confirm I was correct with my suspicions. Without boring you to tears, I'll just say I thought I had a UTI. I'd never had one before, but I know the symptoms (so someone around must have had one at one point in time). The at-home test confirmed it. I asked him a few questions, to which he knew all the answers (I also wondered if cranberry juice was a way to treat, he assured me it was better to use as an aid in prevention). The only thing I forgot to ask him was if UTIs are common after you have a hysterectomy. Dang it! Note to self: write down anything you want to ask before calling!

Then...my phone cut out. I have no idea why, other than Murphy's Law. I thought all was lost. I called back the desk service and they assured me they could reconnect me. While they were researching my information to do so, Dr. Hacking rang in. :)  He wrote me the prescription I needed, I picked it up the next day at my local pharmacy, and all was well!!  I was diagnosed and treated, and never had to step foot into a doctor's office. Now THAT'S convenient!! To say I loved my experience with Amwell would be an understatement. Do you know how much time something like this could save me? or you? Anyone!


TRY IT FOR JUST $1.00!!

The price is reasonable too, even more reasonable if you are a first time visitor because I have an awesome coupon for you! Amwell is positioning itself to be the "Amazon" of medical care, and after using them I can definitely see how that could come into play. As an initiative to get you to see what all the buzz is about, Amwell is offering all of my readers the chance to try the service for just $1 by using the code HEALTHY27. If you have a medical need that can be handled in such a manner, now is the time to give this service a go! You certainly can't beat the price. A doctor's visit for less than the price of an apple. That's amazing. :) Learn more about Amwell by visiting their website, and if you visit the doctor with this code, and want to share how it went, I'd definitely love hear about it!

Now that would be way better in many cases than waiting to see a doctor for weeks on end.

Masshole Mommy said...

We've used this before and were really impressed. I love that we didn't have to schlep to the doctor's office.

Mom Knows Best said...

I love using video doctors. Last winter my son had a bad sore throat and with the help of my sons great picture of his tonsils he got the medicine he needed. I did not have to take him to urgent care.

Theresa Mahoney said...

This is such a convenient service! And, considering I have to pay $200 out of pocket for every consultation I have with my doctor, I am sure it's a much more affordable option, too!

Melanie Smith said...

That is a really good work. Amwell is doing great!

Liz Mays said...

I love that he called you to make it easier. This service is so incredibly helpful!

Terri Beavers said...

Amwell is changing the way I live. I'm disabled so it's not convenient to go to the dr. every time I have a question. I love that I can use Amwell.

Elizabeth O. said...

I really think this is awesome, it's convenient and it's perfect for people who are dealing with a health issues that need constant monitoring.

Mama Banana said...

I used this service a few weeks ago! I couldn't get out to the doctor with my 4 babies and did a $1 over the phone visit (the software for the video wouldn't download for me fast enough)and he called in a much-needed antibiotic for me. The whole visit was $1, which is less then the $15 copay I have at my doctor's office!

Jennifer Johnson said...

What a great service!! I hate dragging the kids into the doctors this sounds like it would save me a ton of time and energy.

Catherine Sargent said...

This is such a great service. I used them a couple months ago for a sinus infection. It was so quick and easy.

Melanie P said...

I never heard of this before but being able to choose your own doctor from a variety is really nice!

Heather said...

I have used Amwell’s services twice and had great results each time. I love that you are able to talk to a qualified physician from the comfort of your home. This is especially great when you have a sick little one that doesn’t want to leave the house. Great program, I hope that it becomes more mainstream in the near future!

Sandee said...

What a great way to get medical care from the convenience of your own home. There are times that going to a doctors office isn't the best idea. Contagious illnesses and the like. This rocks.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Pam said...

AmWell is such a useful service. I know when I am sick I don't feel like going out and going to the doctor.

alissa apel said...

That's pretty cool! I haven't used them before, but maybe I should. It seems really helpful.

Echo A said...

I think it's pretty awesome that they are offering this. It could save people a lot of time and money!

Liz Mays said...

That is fantastic! Getting out of the house whether disabled, sick or because of little ones...it's a great service.

Marcie W. said...

I absolutely despise having to go to the doctor's office. Between the lengthy wait and having contagious sick people everywhere, it can be a nightmare. A solution like this sounds awesome!

Brandy said...

This sounds great! I love that you can have great medical care and not have to leave your house!

Elizabeth O. said...

That's so amazing! It's really convenient and it saves you a lot as well.

I have used Amwell and it really is awesome. Such a great service to have when you can't get an appointment in town.

Lisa Joy Thompson said...

I totally need to remember about Amwell. I'm constantly finding myself taking my kids to urgent care or the ER because it's the weekend or the evening and I can't get in to see my regular doctor!

Rachel Ferrucci said...

I've used them before and they're great! This was a genius invention

Sounds like a really great service. I will definitely be looking into using it soon.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Perfect for those of us that hate going to the doctor!

laborders2000 said...

I have never tried an online doctor before. I might have to check this out the next time we find we are in need of someone.

Karlyn Bishop said...

Oh, this is a great option especially if you can't go out because of the weather or your condition.

Sandy A La Mode said...

I love that you can view the doctor's profile and see where they went to school to prove they have medical background. Trustworthy online doctors are hard to come by, but this is an exception!

Kita Bryant said...

Wow, technology just continues to blow my mind every day. This is really neat and although I don't need it now, I might down the road!

Jocelyn Brown said...

This is very nifty especially for people who might not be able to get out of the house. I know friends right now who could use it.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

This is a very convenient service, especially for those who are elderly or disabled. I will definitely share this information with friends and family.

Thank you for the code. I will share this code with other fellows as well. This is really an amazing service with convenient features.

Christy Garrett said...

This is a great service. I have used a similar service and I love being able to see a dr in my home.

blythe32 said...

The more I read about these types of services, the more curious I am to check them out. It's nice to have Dr just a call away, especially when you don't feel well.

Angie Harris said...

Amwell sounds like it would be perfect for those who can't leave the house due to disabilities.

Ann B said...

This is a great way to try out Amwell. I will have to give it a try the next time I need a DR.

Yolanda @SeeingItTheirWay said...

Thank you for sharing this amazing service and coupon code! This would definitely help when we need to get the kiddos to a doctor on the weekend or evenings.

Kathy Kenny Ngo said...

I've heard lots of feedback for amwell. Maybe I should give them a visit too.

Kathy BP said...

I think Amwell is great. It's nice to have other options for when you can't get to the doctor. This is a wonderful service.

I am going to save this code to use it when I need it. Thank you.

Jess Holmes said...

I tried Amwell not too long ago and it worked out really well!

Tracy Iglesias said...

I got the chance to try this as well and I really love it! The primary I had since my teens stopped taking my insurance recently and the one I found is super far from me so having this service available to me has been super convenient for me. If only they could give me my flu shot too, my primary would never see me again! LOL :-)

Melissa Bernardo said...

I have never heard of this before. Thank you for sharing!

~ Noelle said...

Shut up!
I wonder if Marc would use this.
He hates the dr and will not ever go. Not to mention he has such weird work hours, so its hard to plan an appointment.
This is great to know.
Thanks
