[...] NP was awesome. She was very friendly on the phone when calling us in to the clinic. My 18 year old chose to have her physical without me in the room. After receiving her TB test, she felt faint. The NP immediately called me. I took my daughter home to nap and she woke up fine. The amazing part was that the NP called that evening to check on her. I feel the NP went above and beyond her duty. Her care and concern was greatly appreciated. Her bedside manner is a 10/10! Thank you [...]!

When Should I Go to Urgent Care or Walk-In Clinic in Poway, CA?

Urgent Cares and walk-in clinics are ideal for when you become sick or injured when your regular doctor is not available for a last-minute appointment.

While we treat sicknesses and injuries, our nurse practitioners and physician assistants are also able to administer a variety of vaccines if needed for work, school or personal reasons such as travel. You should go to an emergency room if you have more complex or critical needs that may require advanced treatments, including cases where surgery may be necessary. An example of some symptoms best evaluated at a hospital emergency room include chest pain, broken bones, or head injuries. Our Poway walk-in clinic is ideal for treating minor illnesses , like ear aches and ear infections, however, in the event of a severe injury, please call 911 immediately.

About Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infection primarily affecting the lungs. Those with this infection must be on medication for months in order to fight further development of the disease. There are two types of TB – latent TB and Active TB. Latent TB is also known as inactive TB or TB infection. This is when you have the infection but the bacteria are dormant and do not cause symptoms. This type of TB is not contagious; however, it can become active if left untreated. The second type of TB is Active TB. In this state, it is an illness and is likely to be contagious. TB can become active anywhere from weeks to years following the infectious state. Not only can TB affect the lungs, it can also affect other parts of the body including the brain, spine, or kidneys. It is important to get tested to ensure that you are receiving the needed treatment as soon as possible.

Walk In Clinic for TB Testing

TB testing is a two-part test, which requires a follow-up visit within 48 – 72 hours of the initial visit. The first part of the test is the TB test placement, which will take place during your first visit. Prior to administering the test, our staff will review your health history and verify your eligibility for the TB test. The test will then be administered into your forearm by your practitioner if you are eligible. Part two of the test is the TB test reading, which will take place during your second visit to CVS MinuteClinic in Poway, CA. This must occur 2-3 days after your initial visit to have the TST (Tuberculin Skin Test) assessed. From there, the next steps are dependent on the results. Your nurse practitioner or physician assistant will provide you with the needed follow-up recommendations. Compared to urgent care, we’re a great choice for your budget, as you can save 40% or more at MinuteClinic. Come in now and get your TB test without breaking the bank!
