Tryon Medical Partners Internist Talks Coronavirus Impact In Charlotte Area

CHARLOTTE, NC — As the number of coronavirus cases in Mecklenburg County rises, Tryon Medical Partners is launching a drive-up remote testing center for patients.

Internist Dr. Ryan Shelton  says Tryon Medical Partners is “doing everything we can to conserve our protective equipment, so we are using it at our remote satellite clinic. But for now we do have enough supplies. We are a bit low on the face shields that we use, which is why we are testing only those who truly need it.”

If you have symptoms, Dr. Shelton says to call Tryon Medical Partners office first to determine if you need to go get tested for COVID-19.
