I participated in the Amwell blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.
Technology has changed almost everything that we do. There are apps for just about everything now to help with nearly all aspects of life. This also includes how we go to the doctor. From apps that help up keep track of doctor’s appointments to apps like Amwell that can give us access to a doctor 24 hours a day. With Amwell, doctor’s visits are only a click away.
I recently had the opportunity to try out a doctor’s visit on Amwell. After the easy download process on my Android tablet, it was only a matter of minutes before I was in the screen to select what type of provider I wanted to see. I chose to speak with a nutritionist as I wanted to make sure that I was eating properly since I’m still breastfeeding Squeaker. She does eat her fair share of solids, so I’m just not sure as to how much I should be eating.
Unfortunately, it was at a time when my WiFi decided to be particularly unreliable. And I was unable to complete my appointment.
