A while back we got info from our insurance company about Doctor on Demand. I signed up for it but never thought much about it. The cedar pollen gets me every year. I looked back at my medical records and from January 15 to February 6, I’ve been to the doctor with sinus/ear/allergy issues every year for the past four years. Thursday when my friend and I were sewing, I kept thinking .. Thursday is the day they’re usually the least cray at the walk in clinic but I didn’t go. Then Friday, I kept thinking .. this is the last day my favorite doctor will be there til Tuesday and I still didn’t go. Last night I went to bed at 7:30 p.m. and slept til 9 this morning. I never do that unless I’m sick.
This afternoon Vince said .. you’re not going to get better til you get meds. I told him I hate to go to the clinic because so many people are there with the flu. He said “What about Doctor on Demand?” Oh, I forgot about them. Grabbed the iPad, signed on and within 10 minutes I had talked to the doctor, called the pharmacy to see what time they close and they already had my prescription.
I was pretty impressed and will definitely use them again. Don’t take my word for it but check their website . . I think the “office visit” is $49 if your insurance doesn’t pay. Of course, I wouldn’t use them for anything major and I don’t think they will try to treat you for anything other than minor and routine type illnesses. There’s a list on their website of what they will treat. But, when it’s flu season and the clinics are full of sick people, it was great to be able to use them for a sinus issue.
