Use virtual visits to bring the exam room to you.
NowClinic is a high-tech update of the old-fashioned house call. It lets you have a virtual appointment with a Southwest Medical or NowClinic provider from the comfort of your home or office. The visit can be via secure webcam, smartphone or other mobile device.
How does NowClinic work?
NowClinic is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Best of all, you don’t need an appointment and the wait is typically less than 10 minutes*. You can hang out in the digital waiting room or do something else.
If you choose, we’ll text you to let you know that the provider is ready to see you. Just as with an in-person office visit, you'll get a diagnosis and care plan just for you. We send prescriptions electronically to your chosen pharmacy**.
When to use 24/7 virtual visits
Consider NowClinic for non-urgent and non-emergency conditions such as:
- Bladder issues
- Urinary tract infection
- Cough or cold
- Sore throat
- Sinusitis (sinus infection)
- Ear infection or swimmer's ear
