As much as I love the thought of enduring wrangling the kids as they attempt to put their mouth on every possible surface at the doctor’s office, I would much rather just stay home. The good news is that now you really can visit a doctor in the comfort of your own home!

Instead of having to worry about trying to make an appointment, find childcare (or worse, take them with you), and picking up a prescription, you can use your phone, tablet, or computer and use the Amwell app or website to talk face-to-face with a physician.

What is Amwell you ask? visit the website is the nation’s largest telehealth company which connects users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dietitians and psychologists for live, online visits. All from the privacy of your own home. They employ primary care, specialist physicians, licensed behavioral therapists, and registered dietitians — all there to address patients’ health and wellness needs. What is even better is if you need a prescription or prescription refill they can handle that too.

Even better than being able to see a doctor while sitting in bed (in my pajamas!) is that you can actually choose the doctor in the specialty that you want to visit. Amwell even offers the ability to schedule appointments based on your schedule — not anyone else’s.

For example, if I am the one who is sick I can visit with a primary care doctor. However, if it is my children who are sick I am able to visit with a pediatric specialist.
