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. On October 12, we will start 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.
