On Call: The Doctor Will See You Now

During our last trip to Hawaii, Tot came down with a raging case of pink eye a few days before we were to fly back to the states. I went into complete panic mode. If we didn’t get her to a doctor and treated with meds fast, she would be deemed contagious and we wouldn’t be able fly home. My first stumbling block was the family-friendly hotel didn’t have an on-site physician. How is that even possible? The second hurdle was we did not have a rental car, and the hotel would not provide us use of the house car. Thankfully, the nice “vacation-friends” we made were kind enough to go above and beyond to drive us around the island to the hotel’s partnered family practitioner. And guess what? They were no longer in business. The second urgent clinic we found located in a seedy part of town was closed, and thankfully, the third one was open and found by accident. Tot finally got her meds, and we were cleared for take off.

I’m not about to ever let this happen again to my family, so I decided to give the virtual online service Doctor on Demand a test run before our next trip. With the uproar of the Santa Ana winds, I’ve been hearing a lot of sniffles and coughs. But it is also flu season, so I thought I better be sure. Doctor on Demand is a healthcare service providing video visits right from the comforts of your own home, office, or even local coffee shop if you’re on the run. 

Right from my laptop, I was able to go to www.doctorondemand.com and have a live one-on-one consultation with a board and state certified family physician. Prior to our virtual meeting, I was asked a quick survey of questions and symptoms similar to the forms I fill out in the waiting room at my regular doctor’s office. The service is also available “on-the-fly” since you can easily download the app on smartphones and tablets.

Once the physician had a chance to review my chart, our face-to-face visit began. The entire appointment took 20 minutes. Dr. P had a pleasant bedside manner as he discussed my concerns, and more questions were posed. Before I knew it, I had a diagnosis which I was satisfied with. Since my pharmacy information is on file under my profile, Dr. P was able to phone in the prescription as needed.

No waiting rooms, no travel time and right inside the privacy of my own home. I highly recommend Doctors on Demand for sniffles, sneezes, coughs, bites and itches for when you are on the go and cannot get to your regular physician. Not only is Doctor on Demand free to register (as well as download,) The JetSet Family is giving you a very special code for first time visitors: JETSET15 

Once registered, enter the code upon filling out your profile and store it in your account to use immediately for a free session or at a later date.

    Wow I would love to try this for those middle of the night/weekend should I go in? type of days. I’m impressed the visit lasted 20 minutes.

    No way! That is awesome. I am always afraid one of my kids will get sick while traveling this would be a great solution.
