I didn’t want to go to urgent care or the ER. Using Doctors Online in my freshbenies membership, I went online to ask a doctor. The doctor responded and said to check my blood pressure. He followed up with the next day to make sure my numbers were OK. By then, the feeling was starting to go away. He told me if it persists to contact my doctor. It was great that I didn’t have to go somewhere and wait forever, and it was free.” - Kelli from Texas

My daughter had come down with pink eye. We went out of town on vacation and left her prescription at home.

 



We didn’t realize until we had reached our destination and needed to treat her. I called Telehealth and they diagnosed her, found a close-by pharmacy, and called in a prescription.

 



It was fast, easy, right on time…perfect!!  Saved us an emergency room visit and a lot of money!!!
