Your SwiftMD membership gives you nationwide access to U.S. board-certified physicians via phone or videoconference. The doctor will make a diagnosis, recommend treatment, and send prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.
SwiftMD treats many common, routine illnesses and injuries, including sinus infections, allergies and rashes, insect bites and stings, headache, fever and flu, pink eye, joint and back pain, stomach pain, and urinary tract infections. However, it is not designed to replace your Primary Care Physician or specialists managing chronic illnesses or serious medical conditions. For more information review our Exclusionary Criteria.
When a doctor determines a prescription is indicated, it can be sent to your preferred local pharmacy for convenient pick-up. SwiftMD physicians may not prescribe controlled substances, including narcotics, the sleep aids Ambien or Restoril, benzodiazepines, medications prescribed for weight loss, erectile dysfunction, or psychiatric medications (including refills) such as SSRIs, tricyclics, and antipsychotics. For managing your ongoing conditions it is best to get your refills from your PCP or the specialist managing your care.
As a SwiftMD member you can simply call our toll-free number, download the app, or click "Log in" to activate your account and schedule a consult with a doctor. After the consult you can review your treatment notes, and you can enter your Medical History at any time, including any medications you are taking for ongoing medical conditions.

SwiftMD doctors are U.S. trained, board-certified Emergency and Family Medicine specialists. Our doctors are exclusive to SwiftMD in telemedicine, which allows us to provide more consistent, quality care for common illnesses. They are carefully screened to ensure their excellence as intelligent, sympathetic, and safe providers. We believe our doctors are the best you'll find in any telemedicine company.
SwiftMD doctors are experienced in telemedicine, as well as other clinical settings such as Emergency Departments and Urgent Care Centers. They use detailed diagnostic interviews to elicit a patient's symptoms during the consultation. In addition, photos can be uploaded to an appointment for the doctor to review when there are visual symptoms such as rashes, bites, and bruises. Many common, minor illnesses can be diagnosed via such an in-depth interview and photos when appropriate. However, when a physical exam, lab tests, imaging, and other in-person diagnostic measures are needed to make a diagnosis, the SwiftMD doctor will refer the patient to the care that they need.

"I got sick on the weekend , so reaching my doctor’s office was hard. I called SwiftMD and picked up a prescription within an hour!"
"I was out of state when I became ill on a Sunday. My SwiftMD doctor determined I needed an antibiotic and found a pharmacy open on Sundays so I could start my medication right away."
"I had a lingering cold and cough, but did not want to go to Urgent Care, wait for hours among people with various illnesses before I could be seen. I was so thankful that the SwiftMD doctor was so easy to talk to and then called in an antibiotic. We both thought I had a respiratory infection. I will definitely use SwiftMD again for any future illnesses for myself or family."
"I work two jobs, which makes it hard to take my kids to the doctor when they are sick. It is SO helpful to be able to call SwiftMD and have them treated without my having to miss work. The doctors are always quick and helpful. I highly recommend SwiftMD."
