  • Why Use Nice?

    Nice will save you time.

    You can schedule a visit at any time, from anywhere.  All you have to do is to log into your account.  You can choose the time that works best for you, and, if you have multiple sick members in your household, the visit will automatically be scheduled for more time, so everyone gets adequate time to be seen and evaluated.

    You don’t have to go anywhere to get care.  All visits are either via video (through the Nice app), or a Nice professional will come to you (your home or workplace) for a physical exam.

    You can access your treatment plans right through the Nice app at any time.  No need to call and wait on the phone to get through to talk to someone, just send them a message if you need something!

    Nice will save you money.

    Each visit is no cost.  There are no extra costs for labs or x-rays, prescriptions or their coaching programs.

    Nice’s healthcare professionals are actually nice.

    Each board-certified medical provider is hand-picked, and they only choose people who are Nice.  They want to build confidential and trustworthy relationships with their patients and are committed to providing outstanding medical care.

    Nice treats people of all ages.

    Nice medical providers offer holistic health and want to make sure everyone in the family is healthy and happy.  This means that kids and parents can see the same provider.  And they love babies, so even very young children can be seen.
