When you feel that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you do not want to wait 3-5 days to get the results of your viral test and with Wellspire Medical Group you don’t have to. Our team provides same-day results for COVID-19 testing in Humble, TX, for new and established patients without having to schedule an appointment or come into our office. All rapid COVID-19 tests will be conducted Monday-Friday between 6 pm and 8 pm. These rapid tests are rarely covered through insurance and cost $100.
What Can I Expect During The COVID-19 Test?
Whenever it is your time to be tested, the actual procedure will take only a few minutes to complete. We are conducting drive-thru testing, meaning you will remain in your vehicle throughout the entire process. One of our healthcare workers will administer your test through your window. The test is done by collecting a mucus sample from both of the patient’s nostrils with a thin, flexible stick that has a cotton tip. A swab will be needed in both of the patient’s nostrils in order to maximize the amount of mucus collected for the test. Once the swab is inserted it will be rotated slowly in order to maximize the amount of mucus collected from your nose.
Are Drive-Thru Tests Safe?
Yes, drive-thru COVID-19 testing is considered very safe. Measures are put in place to prevent cross-contamination between patients. Drive-thru testing centers were developed as a way to minimize potential exposure to the highly contagious COVID-19 virus. Instead of sharing a waiting room with others who are potentially infected, patients will be able to remain safely in their own vehicles.
Virtual Care in Humble TX
At Wellspire Medical Group in Humble, we are currently offering telehealth appointments for new and established patients. This means, instead of sitting in a waiting room with other potentially contagious patients, your physician can help treat you from the comfort of your own home. If testing or in-person exams are needed, you can schedule an appointment with the physicians you have spoken with virtually. For new patients, it will be important to supply your physician with your detailed medical history and detailed family medical history. If you have any concerns about what information you will need to provide, contact Wellspire Medical Group today. Our team is waiting to help you get the answers to any questions you have and bring you solutions for all of your medical needs. Schedule your virtual primary care appointment today.
