Just a few weeks ago, we were in a heat wave here in east Tennessee. Christmas Day turned out to be a wonderful time to play outside – I don’t remember it ever being that warm in December! But it seems that the heat wave has passed and we’re headed straight towards cold, winter days very soon. Although I enjoyed the 70 degree weather just a few weeks ago, my body isn’t doing so well adjusting to the varying temperatures. I know all too well, though, that things could get much, much worse.
In fact, when I took my daughter to the doctor just this week for an ear infection, the nurses actually told me that I should avoid their offices as much as possible because of the prevalence of the flu in our town. That reminded me that I don’t need to go to the doctor as much because I can dial up a doctor right through an app on my phone – and if it’s your first call, you’ll get a free doctor visit!
With Doctor On Demand, you can treat the flu, and other non-emergency medical needs, from home using your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer, by having a Video Visit with a Board Certified physician. Doctor on Demand physicians can diagnose, treat, and even write prescriptions for the flu and nearly any other non-emergency medical condition. In fact, we’ve had a great personal experience with a physician from Doctor On Demand in the past so I wouldn’t hesitate to use the app if we see flu-like symptoms show up in our house this winter!
I do count myself lucky that our family is pretty healthy in general and besides the fluke ear infection this past week, we hardly ever have the need to visit a doctor. But in the event that I do get sick, the last place that I have time for is sitting in a doctor’s office, especially if I have to take my kids in with me. Moms simply don’t have time to be sick, right?! That’s when Doctor On Demand really comes in handy!
The Doctor On Demand app actually allows there to be a board-certified physician on demand at all times – which is nice all the time, but especially during flu season! Video visits with board certified physicians, psychologists, and lactation consultants via smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers seem to really be the future of health care since these calls are so convenient. Patients can simply download the Doctor On Demand app on a smartphone or tablet or visit www.doctorondemand.com on their desktop computer, provide a list of their symptoms, and are instantly connected to a provider licensed in their state for a video visit. It’s important to remember that Doctor On Demand isn’t a replacement for a primary care physician OR shouldn’t be used in an Emergency situation.
Just in time for flu season, Doctor On Demand is launching a promotion to offer everyone’s first video visit FREE – just use code “GREENBLOG” for your call.
Not sick now? No worries, register with the app [which is free to download] and enter your code upon registration, store it in your account, and use it when you need it! Be sure to also connect with Doctor On Demand on Facebook and Twitter.
