Over the past year, the FDA has been working around the clock to increase access to diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. That being said, due to the sheer volume of tests required for travel, work, surgeries, schools, etc. scheduling a test can be difficult. Waiting in lines can take hours and the wait for test results can take several days. At Ballen Medical and Wellness, we are doing our part by offering same-day drive-up appointments, with results between 24-36 hours.
In order to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that all individuals adhere to local and federal regulations. With the vaccine rollout, it may feel like the end of this pandemic is in sight. However, it could be several months before we can vaccinate enough people and reach herd immunity (blue range). It is important that we continue to remain vigilant in our everyday lives, in order to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world.
Variants of viruses occur when there is a change — or mutation — to the virus’s genes. As variants appear, it’s important to continue social distancing and limit travel to slow the spread of this pandemic. If you think you may have been exposed or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, it is important to get tested and self-isolate.
The FDA has some recommendations that if followed, can also help stop the spread of COVID-19:
- Washing hands frequently. Especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose.
- Mouth and nose coverings. Including but not limited to N95 respirators, disposable facemasks, and cloth face masks.
- Avoiding large crowds and gatherings, and social distancing. Staying home as much as possible and maintaining 6 feet distance from individuals outside of your household.
During this time, Ballen Medical and Wellness has stepped up to serve its community by offering RT-PCR testing, the most accurate tests available. The PCR test is a diagnostic test that can detect an active coronavirus infection in the body. Testing can be performed via nasal swabs, throat swabs, and tests of saliva or other bodily fluids. Our registered nurses offer same-day, drive-up COVID-19 testing. Ballen Medical and Wellness works with a private laboratory allowing test results to come back in just 24-36 hours. For just $150, you can avoid inconvenient appointments, long lines, and days of waiting for results. Benefits of testing at Ballen Medical and Wellness include:
- No wait, no lines
- Same-day appointments
- Results in 24-36 hours
- RT-PCR test
- Performed from the comfort of your vehicle
- Get back to work sooner
- Protect friends, family, and community
IV Therapy Infusions
When we lack proper vitamins and nutrients in our diets, we may feel sluggish, tired, frequently ill, depressed, and lack concentration. Supplements are one way to address this lack of nutrients. However, the digestive tract does not allow you to absorb 100% of the vitamins you are ingesting.
As COVID-19, the flu, the common cold, and other illnesses continue to spread, it’s more important than ever to boost up your immune system. That is where IV infusion therapy comes in. With IV therapy, we can place vitamins directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. We will work with you to make sure that you get exactly the treatment you need from our IV Therapy Infusions. IV therapy is also the fastest way to get these vitamins and nutrients where they need to go.
