Advance ER, a 24-hour emergency center in the Corridor, is now offering COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing with results in just minutes for their ER patients!
This testing uses PCR advanced technology, which is widely accepted to be the most accurate method to detect the presence of COVID-19 RNA in a patient. The PCR testing is administered by a medical professional through a nose swab sample – the same procedure as the antigen testing.
Normally, PCR testing results take a few days to get, but with Advance ER, they offer COVID-19 PCR tests with results available in just minutes. This is one of the best ways to find early signs of detected viral RNA. Sometimes, even before symptoms arise!
The Rapid COVID-19 PCR testing at Advance ER is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under emergency use authorization. This development is set to grant Advance ER access to the full range of COVID-19 treatments and resources available in their two facilities in the Galleria area and Park Cities.
Advance ER has the same resources and prices any patient will find at a hospital ER. Despite having many of the same services and standards as a hospital emergency room, Advance ER features various benefits and advantages that set them apart from a hospital-based ER.
For example, Advance ER prides itself in having no wait times. When patients arrive, they will immediately see a doctor, and a team of specialists will provide on-site specialty care for treatment and consultation.
“We’ve built a solid reputation for providing top-of-the-line emergency care for patients in Dallas,” said Dr. Chiang, one of the emergency experts of Advance ER. “Our dedication extends to those of all ages. This service will help us deliver on our commitment to improving the lives of every person in our area during the pandemic, by providing our staff with the tools and training needed to better serve our Emergency Room patients and improve the outcomes of their visit to us.”
Since opening its doors to Dallas residents, Advance ER has already made several headlines. Aside from its latest service offered to their ER patients, which is PCR testing with results in minutes, Advance ER is one of the first facilities in Dallas to offer Monoclonal Antibody Treatment to higher-risk COVID-19 patients.
Advance ER is dedicated to optimizing the quality of healthcare through an integrative approach to health and wellness. As a result of their genuine dedication to help Dallas locals achieve a healthier lifestyle, they offer both conventional and complementary treatments for general health, healing and well-being.
