Staff member up front taking my paperwork was not friendly . However it was on a Sunday and 2 hours from closing so I assume that she had, had a rough day and ready to go home. All other staff were phenomenal. The nurse that took me back made me feel like I really mattered and was very helpful and just a joy to work with. The doctor, I can’t say enough good things about her she was fantastic and had a wonderful bedside manner and truly cared. I would definitely go back if the need ever arises. Thank you for your time.

There were very good points to the visit and not so good points. The lady at the front desk was very abrupt almost rude. The nurse was not much better. Very snarky. The PA, Josh, was very nice and helpful as was the x-Ray tech. All in all not bad but first impression not good.

Latest RSV Test updates

Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)
May 31, 2022
COVID-19 hospitalizations are up 20 percent nationwide over the last 14 days, with 45 states and Washington, D.C., reporting an increase. Nationwide, COVID-19 cases increased 14 percent over the past 14 days, according to HHS data collected by The New York Times.

RSV Test FAQs

  • What is an RSV test?

    RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) is a respiratory infection that can be detected with an RSV test. Your healthcare provider may use a swab to collect a sample from your nose or throat, or they may inject a saline solution into your nose and gently suction it out during an RSV test.

  • Who should get an RSV test in Asheville?

    RSV is a virus that can cause serious respiratory problems in infants, the elderly, and adults with a weakened immune system. RSV symptoms include sneezing, headaches, and a runny nose, which are similar to those of a regular cold. Adults usually don't need an RSV test unless they're having severe symptoms like coughing, breathing difficulties, or blue skin.

  • How much does an RSV test cost?

    The cost of an RSV test is governed by several factors, including the test's location and whether or not you have health insurance. If you don't have insurance, an RSV test might cost anywhere from $10 to $43.

  • Does insurance cover RSV testing in Asheville?

    Your health insurance company may pay you for the cost of an RSV test. However, a number of factors, such as whether you have a co-pay or have met your deductible, may influence the amount you must pay. If you have any doubts about what is covered under your individual health plan, you can call your insurance carrier or read over your plan documentation.

  • Where should I get an RSV test in Asheville?

    RSV testing is accessible at a number of urgent care clinics and physician's offices. If your doctor orders an RSV test for you or your kid, it will almost definitely be performed by a nurse at the doctor's office.

  • How is RSV tested for in infants and babies?

    RSV tests on young children and babies are frequently performed with a nasal swab. Your healthcare expert will put a little swab into the child's nostril until it reaches the back of their nose. They'll gently move the swab around to get a sample of nasal secretions. While there may be some discomfort at first, the test is completely safe and only takes a few minutes.

  • How long does it take to get RSV test results in Asheville?

    A nasal swab test performed on-site at your doctor's office usually yields results in a matter of minutes. Blood testing is sometimes used to identify RSV, in which case the sample will most likely be sent to a lab for analysis. The results could take several days to arrive.

  • How accurate are RSV tests?

    RSV tests that employ a sample of nasal secretion are accurate 80 to 90% of the time. Blood testing for RSV antibodies are usually incorrect, particularly in infants and young children. This is because antibodies from a mother's blood might remain in a baby's blood after birth. It's possible that if an infant tests positive for RSV, the mother infected them with RSV antibodies before they were born.

  • How can I book an RSV test through Solv?

    Solv makes it simple to schedule RSV testing. Simply type "RSV" into our website's search bar. The RSV test will be offered as a choice. After inputting your location or selecting the option to use your current location, click the search icon. On the next page, you'll see a list of providers in your area with available appointment times. Simply choose a time and location that is convenient for you, then enter your information to schedule an appointment.

  • Can I do at-home RSV testing?

    RSV home testing is currently unavailable. Some companies are developing home tests for respiratory infections such as RSV, COVID-19, and the flu, however the FDA has yet to approve these tests. RSV testing should be done at your doctor's office.

Asheville RSV Tests

RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) is a virus that affects the lungs, nose, and throat. RSV usually causes mild symptoms in older children and adults, and there is no need for a test. RSV is a seasonal illness that usually strikes in the late fall and early winter. One of the most common causes of respiratory illnesses is this virus. The majority of children will have contracted RSV by the age of two, but not all of them will develop severe symptoms.

If your child develops severe illness symptoms such as fever, wheezing, intense coughing, or difficulty breathing, your doctor may recommend an RSV test. In babies, RSV can lead to more serious infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia, or coup.

Some persons are more likely to acquire a severe RSV infection, such as:

  • Premature babies
  • Children with a congenital heart disease
  • Children with a chronic lung disease
  • Individuals with a weakened immune system
  • The elderly

RSV is highly contagious, and it can be spread by coughing or sneezing. The good news is that once you've had RSV, you're less likely to get it again. If they occur, the symptoms will most likely be modest.

RSV has no specific treatment, and most infections will go away on their own in 1-2 weeks. On the other hand, some over-the-counter medications can help alleviate symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe acetaminophen to help with fever relief. If your kid or infant has been diagnosed with RSV, please sure to follow your doctor's instructions and only take drugs designed for children. A youngster should never be given aspirin. Antibiotics are rarely used to treat viral infections, but they may be given if the infection is severe.

When RSV tests are given as soon as the virus appears, they are most effective. If your doctor suggests an RSV test, there is no need to prepare. You should tell your doctor about any prescriptions you're taking, including over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and supplements.
