My Virtual Physician Offers Covid Testing at Las Vegas Clinic

Getting sick in Vegas is not fun! If you’re in the big city, whether on business, pleasure, or because you live here, you may be looking for a quick way to get tested to rule out Covid-19.

While the drive-through Covid testing sites have shut down, the government has suspended the free at-home test program, and testing requirements for Covid-19 have dropped off, My Virtual Physician aims to provide easy access to Covid testing for those who want to be checked.

With the recent opening of its Hybrid Clinic, located at 2217 Paradise Road in Las Vegas, you can now walk-in to get your Covid testing done right on the Vegas strip.

Covid-19 Testing is Available at My Virtual Physician’s Hybrid Clinic

My Virtual Physician’s hybrid clinic in Las Vegas offers three Covid testing options for your choosing. We can do:

  • PCR Covid Testing
  • Rapid Antigen Testing for Covid-19
  • At-home Covid Test Kits (Available for purchase)

What’s the Difference Between the Different Covid Tests?

PCR tests are most accurate, but they should be avoided if you tested positive within 90 days since they can still detect prior viral genetic material for that length of time.

Antigen tests are not as reliable and may require multiple tests to confirm results. The CDC recommends repeating this test after 48 hours to ensure an accurate reading.

At-home tests can be purchased over the counter or picked up at our hybrid clinic in Las Vegas. These are antigen tests and can give you results in under 30 minutes from the comfort of your own home. These are ideal if you are picking the test up for someone who prefers to stay at home.

Should You Get Tested for Covid?

The CDC has updated the Covid-19 testing information and now recommends that you get tested if you have symptoms. Common Covid-19 symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Breathing difficulty
  • Fatigue
  • Aches
  • Headache
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Congestion
  • Runny Nose

Before you visit someone who is at a high risk of severe Covid-19, such as the elderly or immunocompromised, get a Covid test.

If you’re looking to treat your covid-19 symptoms, My Virtual Physician can help with that as well. Our clinic doors are open if you’re in town and need to get tested and consult virtually with our doctors. Treatment must begin within a few days (five to seven days, depending on treatment) after you first have symptoms and is reserved for those who are at higher risk of becoming very sick. Treatment reduces your risk of hospitalization or death from Covid-19.

If you’re not eligible for Covid-19 treatment, our doctors can help you manage your symptoms with a care plan tailored to your experience. Check your eligibility by comparing your situation to the criteria below:

  • Age: over 50 years old
  • Vaccination status: unvaccinated

  • Have been diagnosed with heart disease
  • People with weakened immune systems

Our physicians can help determine whether you would benefit from Covid-19 treatment, and if so, prescribe the appropriate treatment.
