COVID-19 FAQs

Call the office to schedule your same-day antigen, same-day PCR, or two-day PCR test. Consultations with Dr. West are no longer required. However, if you have symptoms or any COVID-related questions, a brief telephone consultation with the doctor prior to your appointment is recommended.

If you know you need a specific type of test for work or travel, you may schedule the test alone without a consultation.

Please see the chart above for all the test options we have available in the office.

If you are currently ill and think you might have COVID-19, call our office to schedule a COVID-19 consultation. Dr. West can help you determine if you require a COVID-19 viral RNA test to learn if you have an acute infection. Note that the CDC has issued guidelines for viral RNA and antigen testing to determine acute infection. You can read those here.

If you know you need a specific type of test, such as a rapid antigen test or a same-day PCR test, call the office to schedule the test. If you aren’t sure which test you need, you can schedule a brief consultation with Dr. West. She can discuss the different types of tests available and determine what makes the most sense for you.

If you believe that you recently had COVID-19, you may be a good candidate for serum antibody testing. If this is the case, we will set up a consultation to make sure the correct time frame has passed and the right test is ordered.

Because information is constantly changing, we suggest visiting the CDC website for the latest information about symptoms, testing, prevention, and other guidelines.

You can also check with your own primary care provider (if you are not a member of the practice) and your local health department.

All international travel and some domestic travel requires proof of a negative PCR nasal swab test taken within 72 hours of departure. As case numbers rise, PCR test results may not be available within 72 hours. Some countries allow the test to be done 4 or more days before departure. For more information click here.

The scenario plays out like this… you’re sitting at home watching reruns of Friends when your vision blurs. Minutes later your head feels like it's set in a vice, and someone is cranking the lever. With your head throbbing, the nausea kicks in. After making a bathroom stop (goodbye lunch), you climb into bed and pull the covers over your face, lying still in the dark. Can you relate? This is called migraine, and sadly this illness is all too common. ● Approximately 39 million people in the US and 1 billion people worldwide have migraines ● Most people with migraine have 1 to 2 attacks per month which can extend from 4 hours to 3 days ● 36 billion is spent each year on healthcare and loss of productivity due to migraines Add onto those staggering stats this surprise—WOMEN are at greatest risk. Studies show that 8 out of 10 people with migraine are females. While research isn’t fully conclusive as to why, the data points to women’s hormone levels changing. ➡️ If you are battling migraines, please know that you do not need to suffer alone.

More than 80% of women experience hot flashes during menopause. Hot flashes can occur during the day or night and have a range of severity. If you fall into the category of moderate to severe, here are 6 tips to help you find relief: 1. Keep the temperature in your home cool. 2. Reduce stress with yoga, tai chi, meditation, biofeedback, acupuncture & massage. 3. Eliminate hot drinks, hot foods, alcohol, caffeine, and cigarette smoking 4. Wear light, breathable clothing during the day and to bed. 5. Sleep with cooling products, including sprays, gels, and a cool-fabric pillow. Use layered bedding that can be easily removed during the night. Cool down with a bedside fan. 6. When a hot flash is starting, try “paced respiration”—slow, deep, abdominal breathing, in through your nose and out through your mouth. Breathe only 5 to 7 times per minute, much more slowly than usual. ➡️ There are some prescription treatments to help with menopausal symptoms. Talk with your primary care doctor to discuss the best path for you. If you currently are seeking a provider, we are here to advocate for your total wellbeing and provide knowledgeable and personal care. Please reach out to schedule an appointment and learn more about how we can help!
