With a crumbling healthcare system and a busy schedule, it can be difficult to see a doctor when you need to (the average wait time for an appointment is 18.5 days, even longer to see a mental health provider.) Because of time constraints, budgets, and other issues, many patients with mental health concerns never get treatment.
Just because we get busy doesn’t mean our problems go away or ease up. In fact, waiting to see a doctor can increase stress and anxiety. Thankfully on-demand video medicine is an option. Doctor On Demand gives you access to board-certified physicians, psychiatrists, and licensed psychologists. Doctor On Demand is a fast, easy, and cost-effective way to get healthcare from the convenience of your smartphone or computer.
Having severe anxiety and bipolar disorder has made me very familiar with the world of mental health care. Instead of waiting months for an appointment, I decided to try Doctor On Demand. I completed a mental health assessment and downloaded the Doctor On Demand app before scheduling an appointment. I liked how thorough it was, and that it gauged the severity of my condition. I was able to pick a time to see a doctor that was most convenient. There were several days and hours which I liked, especially since they were soon.
I was admittedly nervous about video chatting with a stranger, to say I was anxious is an understatement. Thankfully the doctor was extremely welcoming and calming. He helped me pinpoint stressors and triggers I wasn’t already aware of and then helped me come up with a plan to reduce my anxiety levels. Since Dr. Bhutia is a psychiatrist, he was able to adjust my current medication and forward a prescription to my pharmacy. I’m looking forward to seeing an improvement!
