I’m not a huge fan of a certain radio DJ here where I live. Don’t get me wrong I like the music selection, but every time I hear her voice I want to punch her. Why? Because she is a hypochondriac. I really hate having to hear about every one of her imaginary ailments. Her co-hosts tell her that it’s nothing but until she goes to her doctor and he patiently tells her it’s nothing she is not satisfied. I’m not that much of a hypochondriac, and I don’t have that much patience, but even then I still have a question every once in a while. The problem is that inevitably these questions pop up at 8:30 at night and I don’t want to travel to the emergency room just to ask a question. And let’s face it; just going out to a website to throw in some symptoms is not super reliable. That’s what miss DJ does. Do you have any idea how many diseases you can diagnosis yourself with just by looking up a simple stomach ache?
Fortunately there is a new option, Doctor on Demand. Now I can call up a doctor and do a live video chat from the privacy and convenience of my home. No more dragging my daughter off to the doctor’s office to get sneezed on by someone with a cold. No more worrying that this weird bruise on my neck is something bad (oh wait, the hubby was responsible for that). Hehe 😉
Just download the mobile app or go to their website on your computer, sign in and get connected via video to a REAL. LIVE. DOCTOR. They can help diagnose you and even write prescriptions. All for less than the cost of going to see a doctor in person (not to mention the hassle)!
