I mentioned this morning about Doctor on Demand. I had used them once and today was the first time Vince used them. I’m totally impressed. Vince talked to a lady doctor this morning and she thought he should see his primary care doctor. She was afraid, from his symptoms, that he could be having heart problems. He assured her he would go to either the ER or to his doctor. She said “I’m going to call you back this evening and check on you!” She did. About 7 p.m., she called. She wanted to know what his doctor said. Vince told her that they did an EKG, the doctor took him off one of the meds he was on, which might be causing the symptoms, and did blood work. She said that’s exactly what she would have done if she had been the primary care doc. She said that particular med can start causing those problems after having taken it for years.
We were both truly impressed that she called him back to check on him. I don’t hesitate to recommend Doctor on Demand if you have a medical need and it’s something pretty basic and you feel comfortable video chatting with a doctor. We will definitely use them again – especially during flu season when we don’t want to get exposed to germs and worse, or if we’re out of town and don’t have an established relationship with a doctor and need one.
