I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Doctor On Demand. I received a free trial coupon code to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
You can do almost anything on a computer and now with Doctor On Demand you can even have a doctors visit over the internet. How great is that!
One of the worst parts of traveling is when you get sick, especially when you are out of the country. It literally doesn’t matter where you are in the world as long as you can get onto wifi.
A Doctor On Demand video visit lasts at least 15 minutes with a physician, pediatrician, psychologist or lactation consultant to provide you focused care. With Video, they can Look, Listen, and Engage with you to diagnose your issues and provide an effective treatment plan. You can scroll through available doctors and pick out who you want to speak to. They have doctors available that graduated from Harvard.
You will need an iPhone, iPad, Android, or a computer with google chrome on it to use this service. I hate Google Chrome, so I had to install it on my iPhone, which took like 2 seconds.
Doctor on Demand rates are:
- First visit FREE with unique coupon code!
- $40 – 15-minute Medical & Pediatrics
- $50 – 25-minute Psychologist session
- They do not take insurance!

$40 is way cheaper then a out of country doctors visit in my experience, unless you have travel insurance which most people do not.
I suggest you sign up before leaving the country or going on a trip. That way if someone does get sick you are already signed up and ready to go. You input your preferred pharmacy when signing up, so just be sure to change that to a pharmacy near where ever you happen to be!
Even if you are not leaving the country you may not be able to find a place that takes your insurance, so this would be a cheaper option.
In our family our kids have eye issues, something we’ve struggled with for 6 years and we’ve seen just about everything. Now I can just look at my daughter and determine what she needs for her eyes. It would be way simpler to quickly discuss this with a Doctor on Demand and get her a prescription, then it would to try and get a referral to an optometrist which is what our insurance would make us do.
