COVID-19 Testing for Local Residents
PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers COVID-19 testing for patients with or without symptoms. We offer PCR and Rapid (antigen) testing, as well as antibody testing. Simply walk in to be tested, or reserve your spot online for your test. You can also start your test with a Virtual Visit, meeting with one of our providers via telehealth first, and your subsequent in-center test will be expedited. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, loss of taste or smell, and general malaise, but these symptoms can also be attributed to the common cold and the flu. That’s why it’s a good idea to get tested to rule out COVID-19.
Here at our urgent care center, we also offer antibody testing. This test can determine whether COVID-19 virus antibodies are present in your blood, which means you had the virus at some point in the past, even if you didn’t have any symptoms. In fact, the World Health Organization estimates that up to 80% of cases are mild or asymptomatic. Getting tested for COVID-19 antibodies helps researchers learn more about the virus’s immunity and is an important first step in learning more about this virus.

Telemedicine When You Need It Most
PhysicianOne Urgent Care is also here for you virtually! With Virtual Visits, you can access telemedicine services from the comfort of your home. You’ll receive the same great care that you’d get if you came into our urgent care center, but without the hassle of driving when you’re feeling under the weather. During this confidential patient-to-provider visit, you’ll use your phone, tablet, or computer to log on to our secure videoconferencing platform. You’ll describe your symptoms and ask questions to the provider, and then he or she will recommend the appropriate next steps to take in your treatment regimen. This may be as simple as getting rest and drinking fluids, or it may require follow-up care at our urgent care center for additional evaluation and treatment.
We can treat a large majority of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses with Virtual Visits. Some of the more common conditions include coughs, colds, the flu, rashes, insect bites, heartburn, minor injuries, seasonal allergies, sinus pain and pressure, headaches, and constipation. We also offer patients who may have concerns about symptoms related to coronavirus (COVID-19) virtually.
