In today’s busy world, managing work and family responsibilities is an even more difficult challenge. Squeezing in fitness workouts, social commitments, and personal business makes each day’s schedule more complicated. Now, suppose a person notices some troubling medical symptoms. They want to schedule a doctor’s appointment, but their family doctor is usually booked weeks in advance. Even if they can hold off an appointment, they may be referred elsewhere for testing. Sameday Health presents a new solution.
What should a person with bad weather do? How quickly can they see a medical professional who can identify and treat their symptoms? More importantly, how can they make this medical appointment fit into their busy schedule?
Same day health offers timely health care
Fortunately, many individuals with time constraints can now access a cost-effective healthcare solution near their homes or workplace. Sameday Health is a Venice, California-based healthcare provider that was launched during the COVID-19 pandemic to fill a gap in the market: convenient testing facilities, timely physician treatment, and a comfortable patient experience.
Not surprisingly, the market responded to Sameday Health’s innovative business model. As a result, the company rapidly expanded to more than 50 testing and diagnostic clinics in 12 states. Additionally, each Sameday Health location provides one-stop symptom testing and follow-up medical care. In addition, clients in select states can also access “house calls” services and virtual consultations at home.
Customers manage health services through an easy-to-use app
Many digitally savvy customers would prefer to manage their health services through their smartphone. So, anticipating this trend, Sameday Health tasked its app developers to build an easy-to-use platform. Today, iOS and Android users can access the Sameday Health app via a free download.
Same day health app facilitates key user services
Sameday Health’s app enables customers to perform three essential healthcare functions. Whether the iOS or Android platform, seamless functionality means that better health is within easy reach for users. Through the Sameday Health app, users can:
Schedule a convenient healthcare appointment for a range of diagnostic testing and wellness needs View and share test results (COVID-19, STD, and health panels) Maintain past and upcoming healthcare visit records Provide a variety of same day health testing services does
The Sameday Health app enables easy scheduling of COVID-19 and sexually transmitted disease (or STD) tests, as well as strep and flu tests. Sameday Health also provides a range of targeted health panel assessments.
Most medical insurance is accepted, and self-pay options are also available. Customers can add, edit and/or view their medical insurance data within the app.
COVID-19 Testing Services
As cooler temperatures draw more people inside, they will potentially face increased COVID-19 transmission risks. Similarly, people with flu-like symptoms, or who may have been in contact with an infected person, should request a COVID-19 virus test.
Having completed over 1 million COVID tests, Sameday Health is a recognized testing industry leader. Non-invasive mid-turbinate nasal swab testing is available at every Sameday Health clinic. Alternatively, a nurse can perform a COVID-19 test during a house call service in select states.
At all testing sites, Sameday Health follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (or CDC) COVID-19 testing procedures. A CLIA-certified laboratory processes all test samples.
Once the customer’s test results are available, they will receive the lab report through a secure online channel. Most countries accept a traveler’s negative test for approved entry. COVID-19 tests include:
RT-PCR Rapid NAAT (PCR Equivalent) Antibody Rapid Antigen STD Testing Services
It is also important for clients to protect their sexual health and help reduce the chances of transmitting a sexually transmitted disease (or STD). To do this, customers should seek regular testing and testing at the first sign of possible infection. In addition, Sameday Health offers both twin or extended-panel test formats. Sameday Health accommodates walk-in customers and encourages same-day trial appointments.
A qualified Sameday Health medical professional facilitates the testing of each client’s urine and blood samples. The entire process takes about five minutes, and follows applicable health testing and privacy protocols.
The customer will typically receive their emailed test results within three days. Therefore, clients who test positive should contact a healthcare provider immediately, who will create a treatment plan. Sameday Health medical professionals are also available for a virtual consultation.
health panel assessment
Whether a client is concerned that they have inherited a specific medical condition, or thinks they may be at higher risk of a particular disease, a health panel assessment is an opportunity to learn more about their health. Additionally, they help build a baseline health profile so that their clients follow any medical changes over the years.
Clients can request a Health Assessment Panel at any Sameday Health Clinic. Customers will get their results on time through secure online portal. Clients may also be able to schedule a virtual consultation with a Sameday Health physician.

Some Sameday Health customers want to enhance their health and wellness with supplemental vitamins. During an in-person visit with a licensed therapist, the client is prescribed a targeted vitamin therapy regimen.
Sameday health clinics in some cities may provide these vitamin treatments onsite or at the client’s home. Registered nurses perform each treatment by delivering a vitamin mixture into the client’s bloodstream, which provides faster nutrient delivery than orally administered vitamins.
One (or more) beneficial vitamins and additional nutrients are delivered via vitamin injection. Through targeted vitamin shots, clients can boost their immunity and promote a higher metabolism.
IV Vitamin Drip
Some customers are affected by brain fog, dehydration and poor sleep. Therefore, by receiving the IV drip on time, the customer may see lesser effects from certain health problems.
Virtual doctor consultation in selected areas
Resolving a medical concern usually begins by consulting a licensed physician. However, a client may not be able to get a timely appointment with their primary care physician. Scheduling issues or lack of transportation can also present significant obstacles.
Fortunately, Sameday Health customers in California, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC can schedule a virtual consultation with a licensed Sameday Health physician. Individuals above 18 years of age can book appointments for the following issues:
Allergy Discomfort and Pain Infection Medication Refill Urgent Care Virtual Tour
Prior to the consultation, each client will complete a Medical History Intake Form. This information enables the physician to provide the most accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. The doctor can also prescribe medicine as needed.
Virtual therapy sessions may also be available
Clients facing troubling personal concerns can often feel overwhelmed. They may be dealing with anxiety and depression, relationship issues, or ongoing substance abuse problems. But, maybe they just want to listen to a sympathetic professional and offer constructive advice.
Sameday Health offers virtual therapy sessions with a licensed mental health professional. During each 50-minute video interaction, the therapist will help the client gain a better understanding of their issues. Then, the therapist will create a treatment plan designed to guide the client in a positive direction.
