Allergy season is officially in full swing. You’d think living in the desert that we don’t deal with allergies, but they are actually pretty horrible here. My husband deals with seasonal allergies and I have a suspicion that my son’s constant stuffy nose is also allergy related.
My husband has had a dry cough and some other nasal issues the last few weeks. He wasn’t sure if it was a cold or allergies. One night last week, when we were watching TV in bed, he said he wanted to make an appointment to go see his doctor to figure out what he was dealing with.
Instead, I convinced him to try Doctor On Demand.
Doctor On Demand is the easiest way to see a doctor. Just sign up for an account online or download the app to your phone. Type in a list of symptoms and in a matter of minutes, you are video chatting with a doctor.
Yes, that’s right! No more making an appointment in the middle of a work day and then waiting for hours in a waiting room for a 10 minute appointment. My husband saw a doctor at 8 o’clock at night while sitting in bed watching TV.
Fellow parents, this is awesome!
We used the Doctor On Demand app for the appointment and it was quick and easy. We waited about 8 minutes to see a doctor, which apparently is a very long wait for an appointment. You can also schedule an appointment if that works better with your schedule.
The doctor diagnosed the issue and sent in the prescription to the pharmacy we had chosen when we set up the account. The next morning, the prescription was waiting to be picked up.
Have I mentioned how AWESOME this is??
Doctor On Demand is available 24-7. As a parent I love that I can talk to a doctor in the middle of the night when my kids are spiking a high fever. And as a high school teacher, my husband was so happy to not have to find a sub so he could go in to the doctor.
Most visits cost between $40-$50, which is about the same as my co-pay for urgent care. Doctor on Demand also offers visits with pediatricians and psychologists.
And even better – I have a code for $10 off your first Doctor On Demand visit! Just use code “GABEL10”!

Thanks for sharing! Love Doctor On Demand! The 8-minute wait, while long for their standards, is nothing compared to the wait times in the ER or Urgent Care. So happy to have discovered them. This is great news for busy families and individuals. Wish they had this service when I was working outside of the home.
I totally agree! And that 8 minutes is at home. Nothing worse than hauling a sick kid to urgent care at 8 PM at night to sit and wait for 2 hours. This service is a life saver!
