There are times when I want to talk to a doctor, but don’t want to go to the Doctor’s office. Whether it be something that comes up in the middle of the night or something that I want dealt with right away, it would be nice to make a phone call and talk to a doctor. When things come up with my kids or I am just curious about something, it would be nice to talk to a doctor instead of waiting for days or weeks for an appointment.
Doctor On Demand is an app for your smart phone that allows you to input your symptoms and actually video chat with a doctor. The cost is only $40, which is the same as most co-pays. All doctors are US licensed, board certified, and are given a through background check. Doctor On Demand is not ideal for every case, but works well for:
- cold, cough, flu, allergies
- rash, Pink eye, hayfever
- asthma, bladder infections
- pediatric questions
- most cases that are not life threatening
- prescriptions refills
- referral to a specialist
- and more
Doctor On Demand is not meant for every ailment. Do not use Doctor on Demand for:
- chest pain/pressure
- serious head, neck or back injury
- broken bone

Doctor on Demand is easy to download and simple to use. You make an account, upload a credit card, and you are ready to go!
Like the screens show above, you input your symptoms and anything you want your doctor to know and once you submit your info, you wait for the doctor to review your symptoms and give you a call. It connect almost immediately for me.
I contacted Doctor On Demand for myself this past week for advice. I woke up not feeling great but thought my stomach ache would go away. After making myself throw-up, something I have never done before, I started to feel better. All day I felt weak and tired. After calling Doctor On Demand, I was told that I most likely had a 24 hour bug caused by a virus or bacteria.
My doctor was nice and I could tell he had read everything I had written down. He was thorough and asked me relevant questions. He was kind and took his time talking to me. It didn’t feel rushed. It was nice being able to talk to him, without loading my kids in the car and going to a doctor’s office.
I will be using Doctor On Demand for any future ailments that come up with my family. It was quick and easy to use. I input my symptoms and within 2 minutes I was face to face with a Doctor. This would be great for any ailments that come up with my kids.

This app could help my family because my grandsons are constantly getting sick. My husband also just experienced a reaction to an antibiotic and this would have allowed us to get some questions answered much faster.
