Benefits of an online doctor
Have you been considering trying an online doctor service but not sure if it is for you? We’ve put together a list of practical benefits that might just persuade you to give it a try.
We’re an entirely online service, so it is super-flexible for you (and for us!). Because we’re online, it means that we can have a video consult with you no matter where you are. At a café, in a tent, at your desk, on your back deck…It all works via either our website, or our app (download it for iPhone or Android), and you can use a laptop, desktop, tablet, iPad or phone. Whichever suits you best. Can’t get more flexible than that!
Ever noticed that you don’t necessarily get sick during business hours? We’re open every day from 8:00am to 10:30pm so we’re here when it suits you. We’re also open weekends and public holidays! That’s pretty handy if you can’t get away from work, or need to wait until the kids are in bed, or have woken up unwell on a Sunday morning.
You might only need to chat to a doctor for 10 minutes or so, but factor in sitting in traffic, finding a park, sitting in the waiting room, and then getting home again, and all of a sudden you might have used up an hour or two of your day. Speaking to an online doctor means you avoid all those unnecessary travel hassles.
Continuity of Care
With your regular GP being an online doctor you can still speak to them when you are away on holiday or on a work trip. That’s because we come with you wherever you go – sitting in your pocket on your device ready for when you need us. Continuity of care means you don’t have to explain your history every time – we already know it!
This is a great one for those who live in rural or remote locations, or small communities where there aren’t enough GPs to go around. With an online doctor you avoid long waits for appointments, and have ready access to a wide range of practitioners who can help with all sorts of medical needs. We don’t replace emergency assistance (call Triple Zero 000 for that), but we can help you to get greater access to high quality medical care.
So if you think any of those benefits might apply to you, why not give SwiftDoc a go? You’re just a few clicks away from professional, friendly medical care.
