GREENWICH, Conn., March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Murphy Medical Associates today announced that Drive Thru testing for Novel Coronavirus SARS CoV2 and the disease COVID 19 will be offered at all locations. This process was inspired by South Korean physicians and public health specialists. "With record reduction in mortality rates, it was obvious we should be following Korean best practices. As physicians dedicated to keeping our patients healthy, we felt the need to deliver that care to all of Fairfield and Westchester Counties." says Board Certified Internist Dr. Steven A. R. Murphy MD a Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Drive thru testing is an established procedure in South Korea and the United Kingdom but has not yet been implemented in the United States. Patients can sign up online to schedule testing or arrive at office between the hours of 7-9 AM at the offices located at 1 East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich, 2900 Main Street in Stratford and 30 Buxton Farms Rd in Stamford. By diagnosing cases via Drive Thru testing we keep the patient, the practice and the public safe.
"There's less face-to-face contact," said Lee Jae-joon, the mayor of Goyang in South Korea. "If you operate a testing site indoors, there is concern that suspected patients can infect each other in the waiting room."
Drive Thru Testing at Murphy Medical Associates will be available starting 10 March 2020 and billed to the patients' insurance. For more information on Drive Through Testing for Novel Corona Virus visit www.greenwichdocs.com
