What to Do If You Have COVID-19 Symptoms
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.
24/7 Telehealth – Visit Us Virtually
You may have heard term “telehealth,” or perhaps you have already taken advantage of this service. As an alternative to an in-office consultation, telemedicine service is becoming increasingly popular, and PhysicianOne Urgent Care is pleased to offer this convenient and effective healthcare delivery option to our patients.
How does telemedicine work? Essentially, you use your smartphone or another electronic device as your first line of defense against illness. Through a sophisticated and secure telecommunications infrastructure, you and your provider have a HIPAA-compliant conversation via video-conferencing software. You can discuss your non-life-threatening symptoms, such as a low-grade fever or cough, and receive appropriate care from a safe distance.
At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we believe this is an excellent way to ensure the effective and uninterrupted delivery of healthcare services while still adhering to the latest social-distancing protocols. We can provide the care you need while minimizing your exposure—and the exposure of others—to illnesses.
At a time when everyone is encouraged to take steps to protect our collective health by preventing the spread of germs, telemedicine has become a vital component of healthcare, and it is here to stay. What’s more, the majority of patients who use telemedicine report that they are comfortable and satisfied with the services they receive. If you’d like to remotely consult with a PhysicianOne Urgent Care provider, request a virtual telehealth visit today.
