COVID-19 Testing Information
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.
Virtual Visits—Easy, Convenient Telemedicine at Your Fingertips
Virtual Visits allow you to access the same top-notch care you’d receive if you came into our urgent care center, but from the comfort of home. You’ll use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to log on to our secure videoconferencing platform and have a face-to-face chat with one of our providers to discuss the medical issue you’re experiencing. Telemedicine is perfect for evaluating minor conditions, such as sore throats, sinus pain and pressure, seasonal allergies, colds and coughs, the flu, urinary tract infections, rashes, insect bites, acid reflux, and other non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
While most Virtual Visits conclude with the provider recommending a treatment regimen—which may include prescribing medication that can be sent to patients’ local pharmacies—in some cases, follow-up care is required. This may be due to needing additional lab testing or further evaluation. Your provider will arrange for you to visit our urgent care center in Norwalk, if so.
Virtual Visits are covered under most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, and we also accept FSA and HSA cards. A payment of $50 is required for self-pay patients.
