As the number of COVID cases continues to rise, we want to remind you to stay safe. At The Veranda, we are doing our part to keep our patients safe by being selective with appointment times, social distancing in our waiting areas, separating sick and well patients, and even allowing patients to remote check-in while waiting in their cars. Our goal is to continue to serve our patients and keep them safe at the same time. In the end, we are all in the same team and we will get through this. If you have any Covid symptoms like cough, fever, sore throat, loss sense of taste or smell, fatigue etc. please call the office to speak with a nurse. From there, we will give you instructions on how and when, we can treat you safely and quickly.
Don’t Forget…We have the Most Accurate Rapid Test in Town!
Our top priority at The Veranda is to keep our patients and their families healthy by providing them the most comprehensive medical testing and technology. We are taking another step to ensure your family and our community is safe from the spread of COVID-19. Back in October we started providing rapid testing for patients experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or to those who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. We are the only facility in town currently offering the Abbot ID Now test, it is the MOST ACCURATE TEST IN TOWN with 95% accuracy and requires no need for a backup test. A specimen is still obtained through nasal swab, and only takes 13-minutes once processed to produce a result.
We are requiring all patients to make an appointment for the test. Most appointments can be made the day you start experiencing symptoms, so please call (229) 883-7010 right way if you feel ill, or were exposed to someone with COVID-19.
