Coronavirus Updates from Bestcare Internal Medicine
COVID-19, or the Coronavirus, is a virus that is quickly spreading across the world.
Bestcare Internal Medicine remains committed to the continued safety of our patients, staff, and community.
Our team of healthcare professionals are closely monitoring the situation and are taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of infection.
We are committed to providing you with trusted information on COVID-19. We encourage you to check anything you hear elsewhere on these established expert sites.
How is Bestcare Internal Medicine Approaching the Outbreak?
Bestcare Internal Medicine is following the CDC-recommended screening processes and sending patients for testing as indicated by the protocols. Those are evolving regularly but we’ll keep this page updated with the latest information and processes as they roll out.
Reducing Exposure of Coronavirus
At this time, Bestcare cannot test for COVID-19, but we can help evaluate if you should be tested and help you find a testing location.
Please note: we ask that you do not enter our office if you believe you have been exposed. This protects other patients, their families and our community.
Testing locations available: Arizona Department of Health Services
