Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get a prescription without seeing a doctor?
Legally, you need to have a consultation with a doctor before you can receive prescription medication. That said, you can get a prescription without going into the doctors office by seeing a doctor online. Online doctors can write prescriptions and prescription refills and will electronically send your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, following your online appointment.
Can I order a prescription online?
While you cannot simply order a prescription online, you can meet with an online doctor to get medication prescribed online. In order to receive prescription medication you must first consult with a medical doctor. This can be done online via phone or video chat. If the doctor finds you may benefit from a prescription they will electronically send one to the pharmacy of your choice. They can also provide you with a doctor’s note, if necessary.
Can online doctors prescribe Adderall?
No. Adderall is classified as a controlled substance and therefore cannot be prescribed online. It is illegal for anyone to prescribe or sell Adderall online. Other substances that cannot be prescribed online include: other stimulants (like Ritalin), antipsychotic medications (such as Seroquel, Zyprexa, Risperdol), sedatives and sleep aids (including Xanax, Ambien, Ativan, and Lunestra), and narcotics (like morphine, oxycodone, and Vicodin), to name a few.
Can online doctors prescribe antibiotics?
Yes, an online doctor can prescribe antibiotics following a virtual consultation. Antibiotics are a prescription medication and therefore you must speak to a doctor before you can receive them. That said, you can meet with an online doctor and get prescribed antibiotics online. In that way you avoid the doctor’s office and can receive treatment from your home, or on the go!

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
