* I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Doctor On Demand. I received a free trial coupon code to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As a busy working mom, I don’t have time get sick, and when I do, I certainly don’t have all day to spend at the doctor’s office. Also, if I’m stuck at home sick, the nearest doctor’s office is 20 minutes away, and the closest urgent care is 30 minutes away! The last thing I feel like doing is driving for an hour to see the doctor and get a prescription. Also, when I have to work even when I’m sick, taking hours out of a day to sit in a waiting room is just not a choice. In the past, I’ve just had to deal with it, but now, Doctor on Demand saves the day.
Doctors on Demand is a healthcare service that lets you schedule and conduct a medical appointment by video with a board certified physician, pediatrician, psychologist, or lactation consultant. You can do this on a desktop, a smartphone, or a tablet!
Scheduling an appointment with Doctor on Demand is SO easy. It took me about 10 minutes to get all the way through the process. You simply download the app, provide a list of symptoms and medications, and select your pharmacy. You can even see a doctor INSTANTLY. No waiting. Or you can schedule an appointment at your convenience – and appointments are available from 7 am – midnight, so if that doesn’t work for your schedule I don’t know what will! This is SUPER for moms as well – I don’t know about you, but my kids rarely get sick between 9 and 3 when my pediatrician’s office is open!
You don’t need insurance to use Doctor on Demand, and rates are very reasonable: $40 for a 15 minute appoint with a doctor or pediatrician, and $50 for a 25 minute session with a psychologist. You can see them for cold and flu, sore throats, rashes, upset stomach, sports injuries, and other common conditions. Anything complex, like cancer, or other chronic conditions, cannot be treated on Doctor on Demand.
I cannot express how EASY Doctor on Demand is to use, and I did not think an app for a doctor’s appointment would be easy at all. Setting up the appointment took minimal time, and the video visit was AWESOME. I had no trouble getting my issue addressed in 15 minutes, and although I didn’t need a prescription, the doctor I visited with could have prescribed me one if needed (although they will not prescribe pain medication or any scheduled narcotics). This is PERFECT for a busy family, as you can pretty much within an hour have medication if needed. There are so many times when one of my girls had an ear infection or other minor issue that I would have happily paid $40 to get them some relief within an hour.
And here’s the BEST part – Doctor on Demand is offering the readers of Parent Palace a FREE doctor’s appointment. All you have to do is enter the code PARENT15 when you download the app! Your first 15 minute appointment is on the house!
