Use NowClinic to bring the exam room to you
Southwest Medical is proud to announce that NowClinic is accepting Medicaid patients! The following insurances qualify for NowClinic coverage: Health Plan of Nevada, SmartChoice and Sierra Health and Life.
NowClinic is a high-tech update of the old-fashioned house call. It allows you to have a virtual appointment with a Southwest Medical or NowClinic® provider from the comfort of your home or office via secure webcam, smartphone or other mobile device.
NowClinic is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Best of all, appointments are not necessary and the wait is typically less than 10 minutes*. You can hang out in the digital waiting room or do something else, and if you choose, a text will inform you that the provider is ready to see you.
Just as with an in-person office visit, you'll receive a diagnosis and individualized care plan. Prescriptions are sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy**.

Allergies, bladder, urinary tract infection, bronchitis, cough or cold, sore throat, sinusitis, ear infection or swimmer's ear, eye infection, pink eye or sty fever, chills, runny nose, headache, laryngitis, nausea, skin inflammation, rash, shingles, poison ivy or poison oak, or viral illness
