The Davenport, IA clinic, staffed by licensed medical practitioners trained in the novel coronavirus testing protocols is fully equipped with state-of-the-art procedure and exam rooms, including X-ray and laboratory equipment. Amana Care offers both the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) on a limited basis and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test the most effective and accurate test available for identifying COVID-19.

Amana Care Clinic has expanded its testing capabilities to meet the need for reliable testing in the Quad Cities area. Their website has been updated to incorporate current information about COVID-19 and provides downloadable patient information.
The site also features information on how to visit the clinic safely. Adults and children who want to be tested can come in without making an appointment. However, all patients over 2 years of age will be required to wear a mask and be pre-screened for coronavirus. Telemedicine appointments can also be arranged through the clinic’s website.
Each year, walk-in urgent care clinics see close to 90 million patients, accounting for nearly 15% of all outpatient physician visits and more than 29% of all primary care visits in the United States. According to the UCA’s 2018 Benchmarking Report, most patients waited less than 20 minutes to see a practitioner at an urgent care center, and over 90% percent waited less than half an hour. Unlike a hospital emergency room, the high-quality healthcare at urgent care clinics is economical – ten times less costly, according to one study.
The team at Amane Care walk-in clinic endeavors to create a more “neighborly” atmosphere for patients. More information about the clinic’s walk-in service can be seen here: https://doctor.webmd.com/practice/amana-care-walk-in-clinic-80c5186c-9e18-450e-b0a6-10cd3f0b0361-overview
Amana Care Clinic recommends the PCR test for COVID-19 – a molecular test that examines the patient’s upper respiratory specimen for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Small amounts of RNA from specimens are amplified into DNA, which is duplicated until SARS-CoV-2 is detectable if present. Since its approval in February 2020, the PCR test has been the benchmark for diagnosing COVID-19.
On a first-come, first-served basis, Amana Care staff can check patients in, assess their medical information, and organize care. Additional services include treatment for injuries and fractured bones, back discomfort, childhood illnesses, burns and lacerations, joint pain, and rashes.
Secure telemedicine consultations enable access to medical care from a patient’s home. Online consultations are a viable option for the elderly, immunocompromised, and patients whose inability to commute would otherwise prevent them from accessing quality medical care.
“We want to help the community get through this pandemic,” said a clinic spokesperson. “By being as accessible and professional as possible, our goal is to make sure everyone feels comfortable, safe, and well taken care of.”
