Here at Mercy Medical Clinic, we’re taking action to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We’ve taken the necessary measures to ensure our clinic is very clean, safe, and well-equipped to test and treat common health conditions, and now we’re offering testing for the coronavirus. Patients in the Wylie TX area can call us or book with us online.
Our clinic is open 5 days of a week so we can provide regular testing for the coronavirus (COVID-19). If you or someone you love is suffering from the symptoms associated with the coronavirus disease, then we can provide testing, but it’s important to protect your family, our staff, and our other patients from infection, so we ask that you please call us to schedule an online appointment with us. Over the phone or via the internet, we’ll be able to provide the evaluation you need.
The standard protocol for coronavirus testing is to provide a phone or video-chat evaluation of the patient’s symptoms first, and then, if necessary, to provide in-person testing. The tests that are normally provided by most clinics include both the antibody test and the viral test. With an antibody test, it can determine whether a patient previously had an infection, and a viral test, it can determine whether a patient currently has an infection. The viral test is called a nasal pharyngeal swab and it entails the insertion of a swab (similar to a Q-tip) into the nasal cavity, and then the sample from the swab is tested for the virus.
If you believe you or a loved one has the symptoms associated with the coronavirus disease, then you may need a test for it. Please remember that good hygiene and social distancing are necessary, and call our clinic today or contact us online. We’ll schedule you for a phone or virtual visit with one of our doctors.
The most common symptoms associated with COVID-19 tend to be fever, tiredness, and a dry cough. There are other possible symptoms, including serious ones like difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, chest pressure or pain, and loss of speech or movement. If you or someone else is experiencing any of the common or serious symptoms, you must stay home but also seek medical attention. So long as the symptoms are not life-threatening, you can call Mercy Medical Clinic for a telemedicine appointment by phone or video chat.
A person can have COVID-19 but not show any symptoms, so even if you and your loved ones aren’t having any symptoms, it’s still important to limit your interactions, adhere to the established precautions, and follow the direction and guidance of your local health officials.
