COVID Testing

Our office is now able to offer same day appointments for expanded COVID testing for our existing patients. COVID PCR and antibody testing are both available with turnaround times of 2-3 days.

Who should be tested?

If you have symptoms of possible COVID infection such as fever, headache, fatigue, body aches, cough, loss of smell or taste, diarrhea or pinkeye, or you were recently exposed to someone with a diagnosed COVID infection, you should have the COVID PCR test. Call the office for a telehealth evaluation followed by an afternoon appointment for a swab test.

If you think you may have had undiagnosed COVID infection and your symptoms started two or more weeks ago, you may be a candidate for COVID antibody testing. Call for a telehealth evaluation and order for a blood test, if appropriate.

If you have fever, respiratory symptoms and think you may have been exposed to COVID-19 – please call before you come in and do not walk in. We will schedule a Telehealth visit for Dr. Chou to screen you and then arrange for you to come to the office if you need to be tested.

WE ARE OPEN. We strongly encourage you to schedule a Telehealth online visit if possible rather than coming in to the office. ALL patients coming to the office MUST call the office from your car. We will come out to screen you prior to bringing you in. All patients entering the office must wear a mask or facial covering.

Followup visits are available for chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma. Appointments will be scheduled at longer intervals to allow for patient spacing and deep cleaning between patients. We are now scheduling routine physicals as two part visits - first a video or phone consultation to review and update your medical history, then an in-office visit (usually the same day) to perform an examination and any needed tests or vaccines.
