Real talk: We all know the importance of taking care of our health, staying up to date on our doctor’s visits, and practicing as much self-care as our busy schedules allow. But all too often, it’s just not realistic or even possible to get to an office or clinic—wait time TBD—when you’re not feeling well or need those all-important test results ASAP.

Thankfully, there’s a way you can get convenient, fast and accurate care without the headache (because you probably already have one). The I.V. Doc provides mobile I.V. and wellness treatments in the comfort of your own home, run by licensed professional doctors and nurses. That’s right, you can actually get everything from a rapid COVID test to a hangover-busting rescue treatment delivered right to you, wherever you happen to be. Say goodbye to waiting room purgatory forever.

Here’s How It Works

An appointment with The I.V. Doc isn’t anything like the old-school method. First, you select your location (they’re currently in a bunch of major cities with plans to open more), then pick your treatment and schedule the appointment by going online or calling. One of The I.V. Doc’s doctors will call you for a quick consultation and then a licensed medical professional will show up at the scheduled time wherever you are—be it at home, in a hotel or at the office. You can even put a rush on it if you need treatment within a two-hour timeframe. So yes, you can get medical care or testing in the same amount of time it’d take you to order food delivery. Behold, a few of our favorite services below.

Get Prompt & Private COVID-19 Testing

Traveling abroad, attending an event, or just not feeling well? Look no further than The I.V. Doc’s quick, secure and accurate COVID-19 testing services, including rapid antigen testing (you’ll get results in as little as 15 minutes). Just book your appointment and a registered nurse will perform the gentle nasal swab at your preferred location. You can even live video chat with a doctor if you have any questions or concerns about the process or treatment. There’s also the option of nasal swab PCR testing for COVID-19 (needed for some international travel), or antibody testing to determine if you’ve been infected with coronavirus in the past. Basically, they’ve got every kind of testing you need without the hassle or risk of waiting in line or in a crowded waiting room.

Say Hasta La Vista to Hangovers

We’ve all been there: You wake up after a night out and it’s immediately clear you had a few too many. We’re talking splitting headache, upset stomach, the works. Staying in bed all day is not an option and you need to feel better, like, yesterday. That’s where The I.V. Doc’s practically life-saving hangover cures come in. There are different options to choose from depending on the severity of your symptoms. We recommend the Rescue, aka “the deathbed treatment,” as in, the ultimate IV therapy with both hydration and three different electrolyte medications, administered by a registered nurse. You’ll be feeling like a million bucks in no time.

Boost Your Immune System

Whether you need to look your best or give your immune system a shot in the arm (pun intended), taking advantage of one of their wellness treatments is a no brainer. The Beautify treatment is packed with hydration and multivitamins to help you look your best, the Antioxidant treatment has a custom blend of electrolytes, vitamin C and glutathione to boost your immune system and neutralize harmful free radicals, and the Cleanse will rehydrate and rebalance your body with fluids and electrolytes. Ready to feel like the best version of yourself? Head over to The I.V. Doc’s site to browse all their options and book. Plus, you can get 20 percent off when two or more people get tests or I.V. treatments with code GMG20.
