Thank you to Heal.com for sponsoring this post.
When you are sick (or have sick kids), the last thing you want to do is haul everyone to the doctor’s office. What if you had a doctor who made house calls? Heal is an amazing service that does just that. If you are in select California cities, Heal will send a licensed, background checked doctor to see you right in the comfort of your home.
My family had the plague last month.
Okay, maybe not the actual plague, but after 3 back to back colds, it sure felt like it. I was so over being sick. By the end, I’m fairly certain I developed a sinus infection. I was miserable.
I knew I should probably go to the doctor but the thought of hauling myself (and my kids) to the doctor’s office while we were feeling terrible was just more than I could handle. So, instead of getting antibiotics and taking care of myself, I suffered through it and ended up being sick for way longer than I should have been.
It turns out, tough guys do finish last . . . and that’s not always a good thing.
We eventually got over our month of being sick (fingers crossed) but I would have given anything for a doctor who did house calls. It turns out, there are actually doctors who will make house calls.
Heal.com is an amazing service that sends qualified and licensed (and background-checked) doctors to treat you in the comfort of your own home.
Can you imagine what a sanity-saver it would be to stay home when you are sick and have your doctor come to you? I can think of a few very trying trips to the doctor (with kids in tow) to get antibiotics to treat Mastitis.
If you’ve ever had that (and you have my full sympathies if you have), you know that I was not in good shape. I actually remember one time when I was filling my prescription afterwards, the pharmacist took pity on me and helped entertain my kids while we waited for the prescription to be filled because I was in such bad shape. That was a several hour ordeal between waiting to see the doctor, actually seeing the doctor, then filling my prescription.
Right now they are working out of select cities in CA (San Diego friends you are in luck!). You can book a house call if you are in San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Berkley, or Oakland.
They make it so easy to schedule an appointment. You can book a doctor by downloading the app or they can book on web. They have pediatricians and family doctors so they can take care of everyone in your family.
When I am sick, the only thing I want to do is cuddle up on my couch until I feel better. I definitely don’t want to drag myself to the doctor and try and look human long enough to get back home.
I’m hoping that my family doesn’t get sick for a very long time after this past month, but if we do, I love that Heal.com makes it so easy to get the medical care you need without leaving your house.
