Yup
Called yesterday and got some antibiotics
Its usually amoxicillin or a zpack
Its the "free" option that my work provides and I prefer it over going to a Dr's office
I sitll have a primary care Dr. but generally only visit every 2 years for a physical or if something serious were to come up

Make sure you dont have restricted numbers blocked on your phone when you setup a consulatation. The Dr. calls back from a restricted number and I had to reschedule a few times.
Only complaint I have is when setting up the consultation there are a lot of disclosures that take a few minutes to read through. Depending on when you call the Dr. may be available immediately and I have had the Dr. calling me while they are reading off the disclosures still.
Other times it takes 15-20 minutes to get a call back but overall its a great service.

I have yet to try the video call

Thanks. I am not sure if I have a fee or not. I would probably pay more to avoid sitting in an office full of sneezing and coughing people. Twenty minutes seems reasonable for a call back.
