With two kids in school full-time, colds are a pretty regular occurrence in this house. Last week, my youngest daughter caught a cold from school and passed it on my older daughter. Now, both my husband and I are sick, as well. Having a bad cold and taking care of two young kids is tough, and just the other day, I wanted to see a doctor to find out if I needed antibiotics. With Convenient Care Now by Hackensack University Health Network, I was able to talk to a board-certified physician face-to-face… all from the comfort of home on my own time!
Let’s face it. Visiting the doctor’s office for a traditional appointment is really inconvenient. As a mom of two young kids, if I need to see the doctor, I have to figure out childcare! That’s a big problem much of the time. Plus, it’s inconvenient dealing with traffic, parking, wait times, etc. And then the cost of a traditional doctor’s office visit can be quite high. As someone with a high-deductible health plan, I wind up paying quite a lot just to see my primary care physician for a cold! Did you know that in-office visits cost, on average, $82 for first-time patients, according to the Healthcare Blue Book? At Convenient Care Now, you pay only $49 for a physician visit.
One of the best things about Convenient Care Now is that they are available at any time of the day or night 365 days per year. Don’t have transportation to get to the doctor’s office? Or maybe you recently moved and haven’t selected providers yet? Convenient Care Now can solve that problem! There’s no need to schedule an appointment ahead of time and you can talk with a physician, even when you’re on vacation or away from home!
Here are some of the things that I love about Convenient Care Now:
- Users meet with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians and psychologists.
- Visits are conveniently available immediately day or night.
- Connections are via mobile apps or desktop computer, so you can even have a visit while on-the-go.
I recently had a visit with a physician from Convenient Care Now and the physician I saw was a board-certified internist with 20 years experience! He was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. It turns out my cold just needs to run its course, and I don’t need any antibiotics at this point. I felt very comfortable with the experience, and would definitely turn to Convenient Care Now again in the future! Plus, the user interface was very intuitive!
Wondering which issues are typically handled by the physicians at Convenient Care Now? Common ailments include: Bronchitis, Cough, Sinus infection, Sore throat, Urinary tract infection, Pinkeye, Sprains and strains, Headache, Anxiety, Weight concerns, and so much more! Depending on the issue and the diagnosis, the physician can even prescribe medications and suggest follow-up, as necessary. This is a great alternative to trying to self-diagnose or visiting a health-related site for medical advice.
