Let's face it: no one likes going to see a doctor.
For some, even the thought of making an appointment could trigger their anxiety. One would rather stay at home and let their sickness go away on its own. ( Of course, this does not apply to serious illness! )
If it's just a common fever or a blocked nose or you just want to replenish your medication, wouldn't you rather just get your medicines with no hassle?
Wouldn't you wish there was an easier way to get yourself checked?
As part of their #StayHealthyWithWatsons initiative, Watsons is providing a virtual health consultation service, operated by licensed and certified doctors as well as epharmacists for your general health concerns... all via their Watsons app! The eDoctor on the Watsons app will be available from 9 am to 10 pm daily.
Consulting these health professionals is incredibly easy! Here's what you gotta do:
How do I reach out to an eDoctor?
Step 1: Click on eDoctor and select a store nearest to you
Step 2: Start your consultation and get your medicinal prescriptions
Step 3: Check out prescribed medication in the cart and pay accordingly
Step 4: Collect from the Watsons store you've selected prior
That's just it! Getting your medicines just got a whole lot better, thanks to Watsons. Think about how easy it is for you to help your elderly loved ones in getting their needed medicines without them having to step out of their homes, for instance.

Lets see what other people have to say about Watsons Virtual Health Service!
Syed Faris, 28:
"It's really convenient since I live with my mother who takes all these supplements, and with this app I can just order her what she needs and pick them up after work. I hate queueing up and Watsons gets really packed sometimes so this saves me so much time."
Lim Shin Ni, 26:
"I live alone and I don't really like going out unless I have to. I really like that I can just talk about my symptoms whenever I feel sick through this app and then just get whatever medicines I need from Watsons near my house."
"I got Covid last week and obviously I couldn't go out. All I had to do was order whatever I need for my symptoms on the app, according to the eDoctor's consultation and got my sister to pick them up from the Watsons store. Didn't even have to come out from my room... not that I was allowed to, but yeah."
