PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
PLAN FOR REOPENING:
Our office is scheduled to slowly reopen once the county hits the YELLOW phase. Our county's incidence (calculated using confirmed and probable cases) is over 200/100k. In order to enter the yellow phase, numbers need to drop under 50/100k for 2 consecutive weeks. Once we enter this phase, we will open with only two providers seeing patients in-office while also continuing telemedicine appointments.
Our office now has access to serology testing for COVID-19, through labs that have been approved by the FDA. We wanted to give you some general information about what this testing is: Serology testing shows us if our body has created any antibodies to recognize a microbe. This usually happens after we get sick or have a vaccination.
Because the current virus is new, we have very little information about how effective our immune system is at creating antibodies against it and are learning new things as time goes by.
What we do know at this time is if you have had COVID-19 or a flu-like illness over 2 weeks ago that may have been COVID-19, you may have immunity to the virus which will show up as a positive test. We do not know if this immunity will last days, months or maybe even years. A positive antibody test may also mean you’ve encountered a different coronavirus and can still get sick with COVID-19.
If you are currently ill, your antibody test will be negative as your body has not created antibodies yet. However, a negative test may also mean you’ve never encountered the virus or that your body has not created enough antibodies to be detectable and protect you from new infection.
With that limited information, it may still be helpful for some of you to find out if you have any antibodies at this time, so if you feel you would like to get more information about this test and see if it is appropriate for you, please contact the office to schedule a telemedicine visit with one of our providers.
Available for all appointments and prescription refills for new and established patients. Female and Male.
