HOW IT WORKS

phone_1

1. Schedule a Virtual Visit with a provider

If clinically appropriate based on CDC and state guidelines, our provider will schedule you for an in-person rapid COVID-19 test at one of our centers.

2. Follow instructions for your scheduled curbside appointment

Park in the designated area and wait for a provider to come to you for a swab test.

3. Receive your results in approximately 15 minutes

If your test results are positive, your provider will discuss next steps for care.

What is the Rapid COVID-19 Test?

The Abbott rapid COVID-19 test was recently authorized by the FDA under an emergency use authorization in healthcare settings (although it has not been FDA cleared or approved).  The rapid COVID-19 test provides results within approximately 15 minutes.

The test starts with taking a swab from the nose or the back of the throat, then mixing it with a chemical solution that breaks open the virus and releases its RNA.

Using the molecular technology from the Abbott ID NOW system, the mixture is inserted into an ID NOW box that has the technology to identify and amplify select sequences of the coronavirus genome and ignore contamination with other viruses.

Our team is well-equipped and well-trained for this method of testing, having already used Abbott’s ID NOW testing platform to perform rapid tests for flu and strep testing.

What are night sweats ?

By: | Tags:

You could break into a sweat when your room feels warm or you've piled on too many blankets. But that's not what we're talking about. "Night sweats" refers to repeated drenching perspiration in the middle of the night that's likely to wake you, and sometimes so much that you need to change your sheets. It's usually related to a medical issue. Dealing with whatever that is may relieve the sweating.…

Routine Physician Care

A primary care physician or family doctor is a vital part of individual and family healthcare. The primary care physician is the first line of defense, having access to the patient’s full medical history and a standing relationship with the patient. From primary care, patients may be referred to specialists, hospitals, or rehabilitation clinics. For patients with chronic medical conditions, the primary physician plays an especially important role in monitoring and managing care. If you need a primary care physician for yourself or your family, please contact 1st Class Urgent Care

  • WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US

    I felt comfortable with doctor and staff. They were very thorough and timely with test. The Facility was very clear and up to date.

    Maxie T.,
    This Facilitiy made me feel at ease

  • WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US

    I visited the clinic 30 minutes before they closed.... expecting to be rushed thru the system with less than friendly service. Much to my surprise, the front desk who took my initial info, the nurse who took my vitals and the doctor who treated me were each friendly, concerned and very professional. I never felt rushed. I was confident in the doctor's diagnosis. It's been a few days and I feel better already. I would recommend this clinic to my friends.

    Linda P.,
    Professionals..All the way!!

  • WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US
