Have you ever noticed that most medical questions come up on weekends or well after business hours? My kids are famous for the late night announcement that they have a horrible rash that’s been bugging them all week or they have a rock stuck in their ear and can’t sleep. You know, typical kid stuff. Wouldn’t it be really awesome if the only options weren’t either sitting in an ER all night or waiting it out until the doctor’s office opens up again?
This is why I love the new service from American Well via the Amwell app that gives you medical advice right from the comfort of home. Amwell is the nation's largest telehealth company and they have doctors available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
