Ratings and Reviews
Since this is fairly new, at least to me it is, I assumed there would be glitches, take a long time, and more of a headache than just going to the Dr. My son just had his first online visit and it went surprisingly awesome! The Dr. was great, there were no glitches, and it took no time at all. It took 35-40 mins from start to finish. This includes the time it took me to download the app, enter all of my information and my two son’s information, start the online check-in, talk to the Dr. and receive the school excuse and prescription. I don’t foresee myself sitting in a waiting any time soon.
No Long Wait
I work from home and leave for a trip today and had no time to go to the doctor for a stye that had bothered me for a few days. The wait was maybe 5 minutes and my “visit” was less than 10 minutes. Quick, easy, and affordable! I was able to do this is my home, go right back to work afterwards, and will be able to pick up a prescription on my way out of town.
Wow! Excellent experience
I was skeptical about this, but it was a really easy “visit”. At 9:45pm I decided I should see a doctor tomorrow. Then I remembered this app. I set up an account, entered my complaint/symptoms, and a doctor was on the video chat in no time. It’s now 9:57 and I’m done with the visit and have a prescription being sent to my pharmacy. I will definitely be using this again for any minor medical needs!!
