I participated in the Amwell blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.
I don’t know about you, but I hate going to the doctor. The wait takes forever, and most of the time, you are not super duper sick or contagious, but others sitting in the waiting room are – so you open yourself up to catch what they have. How I wish I could just talk to the doctor in the comfort of my own home. Oh wait! You can — with Amwell.
