The Future of Doctor Visits is with Doctor On Demand
Have you ever had a family member come down with flu-like symptoms or wake up with a rash and be faced with the inconvenience of rushing to Urgent Care? Perhaps you had to deal with the frustration of trying to get ahold of your doctor for an appointment that’s not a week out? With Doctor On Demand, you can speak with a Board Certified Physician in the comfort of your own home at an affordable price without having to deal with the long waits or waiting rooms!
I recently downloaded the Doctor On Demand App on my iPhone 6 Plus and met with a doctor using the app. It was awesome! I love how convenient and easy it was to make an appointment and talk with the doctor about what was ailing me. Plus, I was able to meet with the doctor over the phone within an hour of making the appointment. You can even meet with a doctor right now if you don’t want to wait for an appointment!

The doctor will send it right from his or her computer.
12 – Add your address for the pharmacy to verify.
13 – Confirm your visit.
When it was time for my appointment to start, I received a text message letting me know the doctor was ready to meet with me. I opened up my app and a screen came up that said the doctor was ready to meet with me and I could either click on “Begin Visit” or “Cancel Visit.”
After clicking on “Begin Visit,” I allowed Doctor On Demand to access to my camera and microphone so that the doctor could both see and hear me during the visit.
