Prevention

Medical Associates of Northwest Arkansas (MANA) has taken necessary safeguards to protect the health of our patients and families.  MANA clinics and staff are following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and checklists for patients who may have coronavirus.

Medical visits to the doctor for health maintenance or wellness are necessary and important to keep you healthy. Our physicians and staff are doing everything we can to keep our patients and families healthy. As the conditions change, we may update our practices and recommendations. Check here for updates. We appreciate your patience. The latest information on COVID-19 is available on the CDC website

Please help us prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

  • Please wear a cloth mask to your appointment and when you are making other necessary trips to the grocery or pharmacy. 
  • MANA physicians are now offering TeleVisits. A TeleVisit is a real-time appointment by smartphone, tablet, or computer. Learn more and request an appointment. 
  • Limit the visitors inside the clinic to only the patient and if appropriate, a parent or guardian. Spouses, grandparents, healthy children, and other family members should remain at home or in the family vehicle (with appropriate supervision) whenever possible.
  • Follow everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of the virus. 

Antibody Testing 

At the MANA laboratory, we are working to get FDA EUA approved COVID-19 antibody testing as soon as it is available. Please be aware that you may start to see testing offered locally, even “at home” testing for sale. These tests are not approved for emergency release by the FDA for accuracy and could provide false information. See the announcement from the FDA
