It’s 11PM, all the kiddos are sleeping except for the one who has been up all night with the pukes. Dad is on the grave shift tonight so it’s just you, little puker, and an early morning on the horizon getting the other kiddos ready for school. The book you were reading in bed has long been abandoned as you help her rest and relax while running your fingers through her hair. She hasn’t kept much down the past 24 hours; so you’re filled with anxiety, but can’t leave the house for urgent care. You hold her close, wishing for a solution that could get her seen by a professional without having to make her leave the security of her home and that pink blanket she is never without.
And here’s where Heal comes in.
Heal uses the technology of today to bring medical care back to the old school days of in-home visits. You can schedule a visit with a doctor in as little as 24 hours advance notice through your smartphone by downloading the app or computer by using their website. Heal offers both pediatricians and physicians for adults, so the whole family is covered whether it’s an urgent illness or a simple well visit. You can create multiple profiles for each member of your family, making it easy to set up an appointment.
A medical concierge service sounds expensive, but Heal isn’t only affordable, it’s covered by your insurance. Most Anthem and Blue Shield PPO members pay what they typically would for an in-office co-pay. And everyone else simply pays Heal’s flat fee of $99. The physicians at Heal can provide all the same services your usual doctor would, including preventative care like flu shots.
Heal physicians are currently available in San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Berkley, and Oakland. They’re available seven days a week from 8AM-8PM (including holidays) for on demand in-home visits. Heal doctors are background checked and licensed pediatric, internal medicine, emergency medicine, and family practice physicians. Prior to your visit, you’ll be able to see a picture of your physician along with a complete profile.
