October 25, 2020 – Pasadena, CA – New cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus are still appearing across California, and experts predict a second major wave of infections in the winter. It is more important than ever for Californians to have access to COVID-19 testing, which is safe, accurate, and affordable to anyone – which is precisely what Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is now offering.
Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is a Google-certified COVID-19 testing center that is open to the public seven days a week. Unlike traditional hospitals and doctors’ offices, there is no need for an appointment or referral. Anyone can come to the clinic at any time during business hours to receive testing and treatment. This allows Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena to see and treat more people, including those without insurance or who otherwise do not have access to other healthcare systems.
Reliable Testing for All Ages
Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena will see patients of all ages, with or without insurance, but still offers the same high-quality testing found at other healthcare providers. Both swab testing and antibody testing are offered, making it easier to receive reliable results.
Now, there is no reason anyone in Pasadena should lack access to testing if they believe they may have COVID-19.
Citizens of Pasadena should know the symptoms of COVID-19, which include:
- High fever
- Dry coughs
- Muscle fatigue or pains
- Sore throat
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain
- Discoloration of fingers or toes
- Loss of a sense of smell or taste
If someone in Pasadena or surrounding areas is experiencing these symptoms, the best thing for them to do is first contact Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena at 1-626-304-0404 or online at https://www.pasadenauc.com/contact-us/. The helpful and caring staff will then discuss their symptoms and decide the safest way to conduct testing.
Multiple Options for Safe Examinations and Testing
Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is devoted to finding safe ways of conducting COVID-19 testing which reduces risks to patients or staff.
One such method is curbside testing. If a person is directed to visit the clinic, they can be examined without even going into the clinic itself. Medical professionals in Personal Protective Equipment will go to them in their car, limiting possible exposure to the virus. The initial testing can be done entirely within the car – it is quick, convenient, affordable, and safe for everyone involved.
COVID-19 tests still take a few days to be processed and analyzed, so the patient can then simply go home and wait for a call with the results. We also offer RAPID COVID 19 testing with the results back in less then 20 minutes.
Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena also offers alternatives for people who cannot, or should not, leave their house, through modern telemedicine. As long as a patient has a computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or another device with a selfie camera, they can consult directly with a licensed physician remotely!
The telemedicine system used by Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is simple and reliable, while still being fully secured in compliance with HIPAA data privacy regulations. Patients receive the same high-quality consultation they would receive in person, but without any chances of disease spread from visiting the clinic. This is the perfect low-cost alternative to traditional doctors’ office appointments, particularly during times of disease outbreak.
More Than Just COVID-19 Testing
While Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is proud to offer low-cost, highly safe coronavirus testing, that is only one of many services offered. They are a full-service urgent care clinic, capable of handling many different non-emergency services, including:
