QWhat COVID-19 tests do you offer?
We presently offer 4 tests: COVID-19 RT-PCR Test, COVID-19 Rapid Molecular Test (ID Now), COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test (BD Veritor) and COVID-19 IgG Serum Antibody Test.
QWill insurance cover my tests?
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) passed by Congress requires health plans to fully pay for testing deemed medically necessary, i.e, if you are having symptoms, or you have had suspected or direct exposure or you need testing for surgical clearance, insurance will cover all of the testing and office visit. This will apply only if you’ve been referred for a test by a healthcare professional. Government programs like Medicare cover tests for COVID-19 at no costs if you have symptoms and if the test is ordered by your doctor or health care provider. If you’re asymptomatic, costs are covered if the test is ordered by a healthcare professional or if you are a resident or patient in a nursing home. COVID-19 testing for travel is frequently are not covered by healthcare insurance. Read more on our blog about Insurance Coverage for COVID-19.
QWhich vaccine should I take?
We advise you to not wait for a particular vaccination since you’ll be at a higher risk of developing a more severe case of COVID-19 if you do. Both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines are 95% effective after two doses.
QWhat are the side effects I can expect after my vaccination shot?
Typical side effects include fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, diarrhoea and pain at the injection site. Experiencing any of these side effects is perfectly normal and shows that the vaccine is taking effect in your body.
QWhat treatment is given to COVID-19 infected patients at present?
The current standard of care for coronavirus varies according to the severity of the disease. In mild instances, symptomatic therapy is offered. More severe cases need treatment with enhanced supportive care, such as oxygen therapy and constant monitoring. Patients with serious infections require intensive care, such as safe mechanical breathing and resuscitation.
QWhat type of COVID-19 test can you conduct on my staff
Our evaluation includes screening for COVID-19 type symptoms, targeted vital sign measurements, COVID-19 nasopharyngeal PCR testing and COVID-19 serum antibody testing. Buckhead Medicine uses secure technology to provide employees with individual test results. We save your office and staff time and money.

Dr. Espinosa is an excellent primary care doctor. He is thoughtful in all of his interactions and incredibly responsive to questions and concerns. I appreciate the practice’s attention to detail and the priority they place on patient experience.
Your location is perfect for me. Stopping by to get a quick flu shot was easy and pleasant. Thank you for a quick in and out.
Dr. Espinosa always takes a lot of time educating and answering questions. This allows patients to feel very comfortable with whatever brings them to his office. Megan and Margaret are both extremely professional and kind.
Dr. Espinosa did an IPL laser treatment on my face and I am amazed at the results after just one treatment! I am born and raised in Florida and spent more time outside than inside and at 28 yrs old didn’t even realize how much I would benefit from a treatment. Also, I got the treatment done 3 weeks prior to my wedding and it was perfect timing! In 7 days the spots and freckles just feel off and now my skin tone looks so great I am even wearing less make up. If you live in Atlanta and are looking for aesthetics services or a more youthful appearance Dr. Espinosa is where it’s at.
Dr E is simply the best! I don’t trust any other professional when it comes to my face. he is informative and honest and does an amazing job when it comes to Botox and facial treatments!
