Drive-Through Testing for Coronavirus & Other Illnesses in Houston, TX
The safety of our patients is our foremost priority at Lifeline Urgent Care during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. So, in accordance with guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have established a drive-through pre-screening process at our urgent care center in Houston, Texas. During this screening, we’ll ask you to answer our COVID-19 screening questionnaire, check your temperature, and perform any necessary tests for the flu (influenza) or strep throat. Drive-through coronavirus testing is also being performed,
although this service will be subject to availability for the next few months.
In the event that you or a loved one is displaying symptoms that are related to coronavirus, we have created a separate entrance to a quarantined room in our clinic where you can be evaluated by one of our board-certified physicians and receive expert guidance about your next steps. Lifeline Urgent Care is also pleased to offer telemedicine services that allow you to consult with one of our medical professionals from the comfort and safety of your own home. To take advantage of our telemedicine services, please call 281-771-1144 or book a video visit on our website.
