UPDATE: COVID-19

AUGUST 24, 2020

Beginning Monday, August 25, the clinic will be offering Rapid Covid Antigen Testing, with results available in 15-20 minutes. Patients are asked to call from the parking lot to be signed in and brought from their cars to be seen and tested. The cost of the test is $50, covered by most insurances. This test provides the most accurate results when the result is positive. In some cases of a negative result, further testing with a PCR, or send out test, is recommended. This is a decision each patient and their physician will consider. Our current turnaround time for PCR testing is 24-36 hours. Further written information about the test can be found here.

Thanks for being patient with us as we begin to resume our semi-normal operations.  We are now opening until 6:00 pm and hope to get back to our extended evening hours shortly.  We are now cautiously bringing patients into the clinic to be treated but are asking  each patient to call from the parking lot.  Sign in and wait from your car.  As soon as a room is available, our staff will bring you straight to a clean room.  For your safety and the safety of our staff, we are not having patients sit in the waiting room.  You may request to be seen in your car or have a telemedicine visit from home.  While we are happy to accommodate these requests whenever we can, please understand that some illnesses or injuries simply have to be seen to be cared for properly.  Please wear a face-covering while in the building.

The Coronavirus is affecting every aspect of American life.

Your safety is of paramount importance to us, so we have fundamentally changed the way we practice medicine these days. As of this week we have been seeing patients in their cars in the parking lot. It’s not quite like zipping through Sonic used to be (do you all miss that as much as we do?), but thus far this has worked out surprisingly well. You even get blood draws and flu tests from the comfort of your automobile.

I actually diagnosed illness through a car window while standing in the rain today. That was a first for me.

When you get to the clinic call 234-1090 ext 2 and the receptionist will walk you through the process. It’s honestly kind of fun.

Fret not, everything is still discreet, and nobody has to disrobe in the parking lot. However at least for the rest of the week we will have to stop taking patients at 4 pm. We will figure out next week when we get a little closer.

Please be patient with the chaos. We’re figuring this out as we go along. Well visits and regular checkups we are doing by telemedicine visits, so call to set one up with your UCCO provider. If your care requires more than we can do in the parking lot (suturing, x-rays, etc) then we’ll run into the clinic to do those necessary things. Hang in there. We’ll all get through this together.
