Health officials recommend a full office visit along with COVID-19. If COVID-19 comes back negative, there could be underlying issues. If COVID-19 comes back positive there could be fluid on lungs and low oxygen levels the patient may not be aware of. In March 2020 a NYC emergency room physician working in the middle of the pandemic in NYC was published in the New York Times: “When COVID pneumonia first strikes, patients don’t feel short of breath, even as their oxygen levels falls. And by the time they do, they have alarmingly low oxygen levels and moderate-to-severe pneumonia.”
AFC provides molecular rapid testing because they provide highly reliable results in 15 minutes of less. All COVID testing patients are seen by an experienced medical provider. No appointment is required for testing.
