Why Won’t Your Employees Go See The Doctor?

Mar 16

So, we have few major psychological issues that come into play when drag our feet in not going to see the doctor when we need to.

1. We don’t have the time! Ugh, these doctor offices are all run by former DMV or post office workers who were fired for poor performance in being too slow! We know if we go to the doctor’s office we’ll miss a half a day or more of work.

2. Yuck, sick people! Apparently, doctor’s offices are filled with sick people. You’re sick too, but just not that sick! I’ve got a cold, I don’t want some disease I’ll die from!

3. What if something is really wrong with me? I don’t want to know! I’m always surprised by this but it’s an actual thing. People would rather ignore a serious health issue, then to actually deal with it.

I’m definitely a number 1 & 2 person. I don’t have the time and I don’t want to be around sick people. So, going to the doctor is basically an ambulance ride for me! Meaning, I’m not going unless they drag me out in an ambulance!

That’s why I fell in love with seeing a doctor on my iPhone! One of the coolest things I’ve done in a while! Check it out:

If you haven’t tried it with your insurance company, you need to! So, simple. So, fast. It’s life changing for people like me!

Hit me in the comments about your experiences. Also, I would love to hear the kinds of things people have used this service for. Mine was a simple sinus infection and some antibiotics. The early adopter in me wants to know how far I can go with this service! Can I meet with a therapist and get an Adderall script? What about Viagra? I don’t need it, but a bet a bunch of dudes would rather do this over the phone than in person!

  1. Avoiding the executive annual physical can be a serious danger sign. The Rexall CEO kept skipping his. He died of an unexpected avoidable heart attack, leaving the company in chaos. Thereafter, we in HR were empowered to strictly enforce the mutually beneficial precaution.

  2. Love telehealth! Have used it for years, and it is so convenient. I believe, I’m actually healthier because of it.

  3. I was able to get a diagnosis and prescription during a snow storm and was so thankful to have the option of a virtual appointment so that I didn’t have to drive my sick kid to the doctor’s office in bad weather. There were options to schedule appointments through 9 pm, which was awesome for anyone working during the day. The cost of the virtual appointments can be around $50 WITHOUT insurance, which is much less than a trip to urgent care. For a common problem, I am sold!
