AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa is taking action in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We have taken additional measures to ensure our clinic is clean, safe, and well-equipped to test and treat patients for common health conditions, and now we're providing coronavirus testing for patients in the Mira Mesa area. Call us today to learn more about a safe, at-home virtual provider's visit with us, or schedule an appointment with us online.
Every day of the week, AFC Urgent Care on Mira Mesa Blvd is able to provide testing for the coronavirus (COVID-19). If you or a loved one is experiencing the symptoms of the coronavirus disease, then you may need to get tested for it. However, to protect your family, our staff, and our other patients from infection, we ask that you call (858) 900-3550 to schedule an appointment via phone. We'll be able to provide the evaluation you'll need during this appointment, and it will likely be less expensive and covered by your insurance. If you require testing for the coronavirus, we can provide it, either in-person or with curbside testing. AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa is available to patients in the Mira Mesa area.
Our protocol for coronavirus testing is to provide an evaluation of the patient's symptoms via the phone or video chat, and then to offer in-person or curbside testing if necessary. We can provide either an antibody test or a viral test. The antibody test is to see whether a patient had a previous COVID-19 infection, and the viral test is to see whether a patient currently has an infection. The viral test procedure itself is called a nasal pharyngeal swab. It involves the insertion of a swab (like a Q-tip) into the nasal cavity, and then the sample collected from the swab is tested for the virus.
If you or a family member is experiencing the symptoms of the coronavirus disease, then you may need to be tested for it. Also, good hygiene and social distancing is necessary. Call us today so we can evaluate the symptoms and the situation. Please understand that testing locations like ours have a limited number of testing kits, so they must be kept available for patients who absolutely must be tested right away, like hospitalized patients, healthcare workers, and patients with more serious symptoms.
The common symptoms associated with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) include fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Serious symptoms include difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, and loss of speech/movement. If you're experiencing the aforementioned common symptoms or any of the serious symptoms, then you must stay home but also seek medical attention. Call AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa today to schedule a appointment with us by phone.
Not everyone who has COVID-19 shows symptoms, so even if you and your family don't have any symptoms, it's still important to limit your interactions, adhere to the necessary precautions, and follow the directions and guidelines of your local health officials.
AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa is available for you and your family Monday to Sunday, 8 am to 8 pm, and we're located at 8260 Mira Mesa Blvd Ste A San Diego, CA 92126, but if you or a family member has the symptoms of the coronavirus, please call (858) 900-3550 now. One of our providers will be able to evaluate your symptoms either over the phone. After, if you require testing, we'll be able to provide it.
We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.
We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.
That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
