Ask An Expert From Home With Samsung Health

At our household, like many households, we go, go, go! We need to work. We need to go to school. We have sports practice. We have family events. We have things to do and getting sick isn’t one of them! Besides that, who has time to sit in a waiting room for forever?

That’s why having a doctor on demand is the way to go! At the touch of my fingertips, I have access to urgent care with Samsung Health’s Ask An Expert. For those of you with a Samsung, you may or may not know this, but you have Ask an Expert already on your phone. It comes preloaded on your Samsung device. No download required. Yes, REALLY!!

Here’s how Samsung’s Ask An Expert saved me from calling for an appointment and sitting in a waiting room for hours on end. My 7 year old daughter recently had a case of pink eye and oh boy, I knew what it was right away! My kids have had pink eye before (this isn’t my first rodeo!), so I knew the goopy gunk was not just a case of the eye boogers.

Hello, Ask an Expert!

I went into Ask An Expert, they were able to see her eye and in fact, see that pink eye was the culprit and Ciprofloxacin eye drops were prescribed. Boom, done!

Any of the following common conditions can be treated with Urgent Care via Samsung Health:

Sinus infection
Cold/upper respiratory infection
Bronchitis
Sore throat
UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
Yeast Infection
Cough
