Falling sick sucks. I bet you agree with me on this.
When I fall sick, I am guaranteed to get the “sick package”. If I have a fever, I can be sure that the flu and cough will come soon. When I’m down with the “sick package”, all I feel like doing is just curl up in my bed.
Of course I have to get some medicine to be well again but the part I hate most is having to go to the clinic! How am I to drive myself to the clinic when I’m sick like a dog – sometimes shivering because of my fever, just to get medicine so that I can drive myself home again before resting in bed?
If only there’s a way I can see a doctor from my bed!
Cost for a doctor to do a house visit is frigging expensive so that’s definitely out of the equation. But there’s another way for you and me to get a doctor’s consultation in the comfort of our own homes – DOCTORONCALL (DOC)! And it’s cheap too!

How Doctor On Call (DOC) Works?
A fortnight ago I fell sick after returning from my trip to Kuantan. I had very high fever, it was so high that even the roots of my hair felt hot. However, even though the skin on my whole body was burning up, I was shivering and felt very cold. This is classic fever problem. At the same time, I was starting to get the sniffles.
I was too sick to drive myself to the clinic. My body was achy and I kept shivering in the office. Then, I remembered DoctorOnCall (DOC) and so I quickly went online and type http://doctoroncall.com.my.
I was immediately brought to the first page where I would have to register (as a first time user) or login (if I have used DoctorOnCall before).
After I registered, the website brought me back to the Landing Page. This time, I typed in my basic questions or health issues based on the health category and problem.
Since I only have fever and mild flu, I chose “General Health” category. After adding a little description about my health issues, I clicked the “Talk To A Doctor Now” button and waited to be connected to a doctor.
If your internet connection is superb, it will take just a few seconds to connect to a doctor.
That afternoon I was connected to Doctor Adeline through Video Call.
After exchanging small greetings, Doctor Adeline asked me to describe my symptoms. I told her about my hot temperature but I felt chilly and my body felt achy. After I checked for any swollen nodes under my jaw (as per her instructions), she deduced that I had viral fever and slight flu.
⇒ It is highly advisable to describe your symptoms in detail
From our 10 minutes talk, she prescribed me two types of medicine. After we disconnected from the Video Call, I received an email on how I would like to receive my medication: Pharmacy Pick Up or Delivery.
I chose Delivery and made payment via debit card.
- Since the total cost of medication is below RM100, I topped up RM10 for delivery (free delivery for medications costs more than RM100).
- Since I live in the Klang Valley, I received my medication around 1 to 2 hours. If you live outside Klang Valley, you will receive your medicine the next day. Delivery can be made to anywhere in Malaysia.
- Delivery is via secure internal courier.
