When Would You Need Rapid COVID Testing in Dunedin and Where Can You Get It?

COVID has wreaked havoc across the world in only a couple of short years, and that means that dozens of measures are in place for both diagnosis and preventative care. In some cases, you need quick answers and results. That’s where something like rapid COVID testing in Dunedin would come in handy.

You would need a rapid COVID test if:

  • You exhibit signs of the Coronavirus, such as high fever, coughs, loss of taste or smell, severe headache, and extreme body aches.
  • You’ve been exposed to someone that’s tested positive for COVID.
  • You’ve just come back from traveling to another state or country.
  • You’ve been to a big social event, such as a festival or concert.

Regardless of if you’ve been vaccinated, it’s important to take COVID seriously. Vaccination lessens your risk of serious sickness or fatality, but there’s still a risk of getting sick from the virus. You should do your best to use preventative measures to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

How Long Does a Rapid COVID Test Take to Develop Results?

Normally, it takes 15 to 30 minutes for a rapid COVID test to register results. It’s done via either an oral or nasal swab, then tested for antigens that would detect a viral load.

How Do You Treat COVID if the Test Comes Back Positive?

Over 90 percent of people will recover from COVID without complications, especially if they’ve been vaccinated against the virus. However, you can treat the symptoms with pain medication for your fever and body aches. You should also eat foods that are rich in protein, iron, and potassium and drink at least 8 cups of water per day for proper nutrition and hydration.

This is a great office. From Sarah upfront back to Nicole And Denise, these medical professionals are exceptional and so caring! I actually found this office for my wife but am so impressed I will be switching to them as my primary care office! If you are looking for an attentive and thorough doctors office, this is the one. Thanks guys, you put my wife (and me) at ease Dan and Carrie Murphy

I’m a newer patient of Nicole, and I have nothing but great things to say about both her and the practice. I’ve been struggling with severe stomach pains for a few years now, and none of the other doctors I’ve seen have been able to find anything they’re able to do about it. Most haven’t even been willing to do tests to find out what’s going on. My appointment with Nicole was for a refill on a prescription for a skin condition, but Nicole made sure to go over all of my medical history as well as my families. She asked questions no other medical professional has ever asked, and one of these led to her realizing there may be something wrong that’s causing my pain. I’ve had to fight with doctors just to get them to order tests, and half of the time the tests ordered weren’t even remotely related to what I told them was happening. She sat there in front of me looking up the exact tests that needed to be ordered to check for the condition she thinks I may have, wrote them down, and said those exact things to the woman who wrote the script for the tests. I also had to get a refill on a migraine medication while I was there, but this med is expensive and takes time to get my insurance to cover. Because of that, she made sure to offer me free samples of the medication so that I could start taking them right away. I did forget to get these when I left that day, but they made picking them up later so easy. They’re also being very helpful in doing their part to get my insurance to cover this medication. Also, if you need a last minute appointment, they take walk ins! This place is great, and cares a lot.

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

My family doctor for years

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
