Temporary Respiratory Symptom Clinics

March 27, 2020

Updated: May 3, 2020 

To continue to serve people who may be experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, Wake Forest Baptist Health has opened several respiratory symptom clinics across the region.

These locations are:

  • Family Medicine and Internal Medicine – Peace Haven (1930 N. Peace Haven Rd., Winston-Salem
  • Pulmonology – Westchester (1814 Westchester Dr., Suite 202, High Point)
  • Family Medicine - Sunset Avenue (375 Sunset Avenue, Asheboro)
  • Family Medicine - Springs Road (2359 Springs Road NE, Hickory)
  • Family Medicine - Summerfield (4431 US Hwy 220 North, Summerfield)
  • UPDATE: Starting Monday, May 4, the respiratory symptom clinic at Urgent Care -  Palladium (5826 Samet Dr., Suite 101, High Point) will close. Urgent Care - Palladium will resume seeing urgent care patients and will continue performing pre-operative COVID-19 testing.
  • Internal Medicine - Kernersville (861 Old Winston Rd., Kernersville)
  • Internal Medicine - Lexington (105 Hospital Dr., Lexington)
  • Urgent Care - Mocksville (1188 Yadkinville Rd., Mocksville)
  • UPDATE: Starting May 4: Urgent Care - Wilkes (1900 West Park Dr., North Wilkesboro) will continue services as a temporary respiratory symptom clinic and will resume normal urgent care services

People with symptoms of respiratory illness should first call their primary care provider for telephone screening to determine whether they need to be seen in person at one of the respiratory symptom clinics.  

Those without a primary care provider can call Wake Forest Baptist’s hotline at 336-70-COVID for telephone screening to determine if the symptoms can safely be managed at home or if the patient needs to be seen in person.

If the patient needs to be seen in person, the patient will be asked to come to one of the respiratory symptom clinics and will be given a phone number to call when they arrive. They will remain in their vehicle until they are ready to be seen; clinic staff will then escort them directly to an exam room.

While patients can be assessed at these locations, they are not COVID-19 testing sites. At this time, Wake Forest Baptist Health is following state and national guidelines and only testing patients ill enough to require admission to the hospital.
