When you're not feeling well, the last thing you want to do is sit in a waiting room for hours. The Solv health app can find an available doctor with a same-day appointment.

The app is easy to use. Enter your reason for needing to see a doctor, your location, the time you want, whether you're an adult or have a child, and click "search."

Solv will generate a list of clinics that best suit your needs and location. You can see the possible appointment time, location, and clinic rating. Click "book it" if you want the appointment, or search through other results.

To book the appointment, Solv asks for some basic info like your name, birthday, phone number, and email. You don't have to risk being a walk-in and waiting for hours, or being on hold with a nurse.

The app can reschedule quickly for you and help you understand which clinics or offices will take your insurance.

Solv's website also has a section for medical providers to add their practice. Currently, Solv is available only in certain cities across the country.

Most recently, Solv added telemedicine support, Solv Video Telemed. Instead of going to the clinic, you can speak with a doctor directly on your screen via a video call.

According to Mobihealth News, Solv's video calls are encrypted and require no additional downloads for the user.

Download.com reached out to Solv and will update when we hear back.
