Get Smoking Cessation Treatment
With our same day smoking cessation treatment service, you can meet with an online doctor and get prescribed a smoking cessation treatment plan, including medications proven to help with quitting smoking, such as Chantix. Instead of going to your doctor in person, you can conveniently meet with a top PlushCare doctor online.
Studies show that people who speak with a doctor to discuss a quit plan are twice as likely to succeed at quitting smoking. Additionally, smoking cessation medications help with quitting success because they ease the uncomfortable symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and help you cope without caving to cigarettes.
Note: While Chantix is no longer available due to Pfizer’s voluntary recall, it is still possible to request the generic version (Varenicline) to help with your treatment. Speak with a doctor to learn more.

How long does it take lungs to heal after quitting smoking?
Just 12 hours after your last cigarette the carbon monoxide levels in your blood return to normal. This helps your body get the oxygen it needs for all cellular function.

Cilia can take anywhere from 1 to 9 months to heal after you quit smoking.
Can you get tar removed from your lungs?
Yes, it is possible to remove tar from your lungs using natural remedies to help your lungs heal after smoking. Your cilia will gradually heal after you quit, which will help remove tar from your lungs.

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.
