Here’s a scenario for you: One morning you wake up and your little one has the sniffles. You check for fever and determine your little one must just have allergies kicking up again, or perhaps maybe it’s even yourself that is feeling under the weather. You decide to proceed with your day, but by evening, you and/or your little one are feeling worse. Full blown congestion, cough, and a fever. You do everything you can to remedy the situation, but nothing is working and there’s no relief in sight. By now it’s far too late to go see your own physician, let alone, you would probably not even get an appointment until next week. Do you trek out to your local urgent care or ER and possibly wait for hours to be seen, or do you stick it out at home? Sometimes this answer is hard to come by. Even if you were to go to the urgent care or ER, not only would you have to wait, but there is also a chance they would just send you right back home with more Tylenol that you already have on hand. Talk about a wasted and expensive trip, right? I’ve been there myself, many times. Well, now there’s a solution and you can make that decision easily and quickly with the help of MedCallAssist!

Whether you’re at work, on vacation, or even in the comfort of your own home MedCallAssist is there for you. As a mother myself, I can’t even begin to stress how valuable this company is, especially when it comes to my family. One night, I found myself wondering just what to do. We were out of state and celebrating Christmas with my in-laws. So right there, no established physician and with it being the holidays, no way of getting an appointment any time soon. Not to mention, not having much left in our budget for the unexpected. My daughter developed a fever that just would not go down. I had tried everything I knew with over the counter children’s medicine, a cool bath, cool cloths on the forehead, and even chicken noodle soup. Her fever would not quit, but as sick as she was, she also was still very upbeat and wanting to play with her cousins the whole time. Her demeanor did not match with that of being a sick child. Finally, after doing the best I could, I called into MedCallAssist and spoke with Dr. Stirling. We talked thoroughly over her symptoms, what I had already done, and her medical history. I explained our situation and asked him what he thought was best. I surely thought he would say for us to take her to the local urgent care or ER, which I was very prepared to do, but he didn’t. Instead he explained in depth what was going on and viral infections, how to proceed with treatment, and what to look for. That in case things changed, then we would need to take her in. I hung up and did as instructed, giving it a couple more hours and sure enough, her fever broke. Everything he said worked. Not only was my daughter back to feeling better and enjoying Christmas, but that was quite the Christmas gift itself.

Not only do I work for MedCallAssist, I believe in our company and in our licensed physicians. They know what they’re talking about with over 100 years of experience between them, and every day I get to hear the relief in other parents’ voices when they are not only reassured, but truly heard. Our physicians listen and truly care about our patient’s well-being. Right from the comfort of your own home, the office at work, or even on a family vacation, we are there for you 24/7 and 365 days a year! We also provide the MedKit Add-on option for those who feel having medical supplies at home beneficial. It includes the basics of everything, from bandages to antibiotics. Our physicians then go over exactly what medication from your kit to take, how much, and for how long. If you don’t have a MedKit, that’s not a problem. Our physician’s will electronically send prescriptions to your local pharmacy, most ready for pickup within an hour.

So what are you waiting for? Get that reassurance or maybe learn something new about medical treatment in the process, it is so worth it to have such an amazing resource to help keep your family happy and healthy. There’s just nothing quite like having such a peace of mind as many do with MedCallAssist.
