The Primary Symptoms of COVID-19

COVID-19 is still prevalent and a serious health risk, especially for those with compromised immune systems and preexisting conditions. You’ll have better chances of recovering swiftly and safely if you get treated sooner than later. We recommend getting tested as soon as possible if you’re exhibiting one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Our COVID-19 Treatment Process

Here’s how our treatment process works:


If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you should visit the ER for testing. Though at-home tests can determine whether you’re negative or positive, they are much less accurate than a PCR test. In addition, with just one swab we’re able to detect up to 14 other causes for your illness in case it’s not COVID causing your symptoms. Testing is quick and only takes 15 minutes utilizing the advanced BioFire Spotfire® device.

Treatment Administration

If you test positive and are eligible for treatments, we may prescribe Paxlovid or Molnupiravir. These oral medications are approved and highly effective for treating COVID-19. These medications only work if started within 5 days of symptom onset. Patients without COVID-19 are worked up and treated for other possible causes of their symptoms. You can count on us to figure things out and get you back to normal!


We’ll provide instructions for home care and guide you on what to do if any complications or symptoms worsen. We take responsibility for our patients and can even bring you back to complete therapies that would otherwise require a hospital stay.

Your Safety Is Our Priority

Our patients’ and community’s health and wellness are our duty. When we protect one patient, we also protect their family, friends, and anyone they physically contact. Our 24-hour emergency room services offer first-class ER service with no wait. Compassionate, board-certified ER physicians and experienced, friendly nurses will ensure you receive the best possible care. By choosing us for your COVID-19 care, you’ll recover swiftly, return to normal, and prevent the virus from harming your loved ones and neighbors.
