She goes above and beyond with her patient care and always ensures that her patient’s health is her top priority. She takes the time to complete a thorough exam and she always answers any questions I may have. She even follows up after sick-visit appointments to see how my child is doing with any treatments.

COVID -19 Testing
Marquesa Medical now offers COVID Pcr testing at your location in Key West. Results available in 1-2 days. PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection. This test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. Contact us today to schedule your COVID Pcr test in Key West today.
Healthcare Visits At Your Location
We will visit you at your Key West home, office or hotel. House calls will save costly and unnecessary ambulance trips, emergency room visits, and hospitalizations. Not to mention the time you will save being treated in the comfort of your home in Key West.
A cotton swab (similar to a Q-tip) is quickly rubbed over both tonsils as well as the back wall of the mouth (the posterior pharynx). The swab is then placed in a specialized container and the test is performed. Many people find that obtaining the swab produces a gagging sensation. However, since the entire swabbing process lasts less than five seconds this inconvenience is minimal.
Influenza (Flu) Test
During each flu season, millions of Americans get the flu. Most people who get the flu will feel sick with muscle aches, fever, and other uncomfortable symptoms, but will recover within a week or so. For others, the flu can cause very serious illness, and even death. Schedule you safe at home flue test in Key West with us today.
Respiratory diseases and conditions constrict the lung tubes and can make breathing very difficult. A Nebulizer is a medical device used to treat these problems directly by administering medicine to the respiratory tract via inhalation at the comfort of your Key West home. Functioning in a manner similar to that of an Inhaler, a Nebulizer delivers medication in the form of mist. It is inhaled through a mouthpiece and delivered directly to the respiratory tract.
A Nebulizer treatment is a treatment option if you suffer from the following conditions or diseases: wheezing, shortness of breath, Asthma, acute bronchitis, emphysema, or any respiratory condition that effects the airway.
A urinalysis is a laboratory test. It can help us detect problems that may be shown by your urine.
Many illnesses and disorders affect how your body removes waste and toxins. The organs involved in this are your lungs, kidneys, urinary tract, skin, and bladder. Problems with any of these can affect the appearance, concentration, and content of your urine.
For a urinalysis you would collect a small amount of urine, midstream, in a sterile cup. This can be done in the comfort of your Key West home. You should inform us if you take any medicine or pills since this can affect test results.
Ear Lavage (wax removal)
Earwax is a naturally occurring substance that has many helpful benefits. It inhibits the growth of bacteria. It also prevents small pieces of dust and debris from falling all the way into your ear canal.
However an earwax buildup, or blockage, can be annoying and disruptive to your wellness. Symptoms of a blockage can include an earache or a “full” feeling in the ear, muffled hearing, dizziness, or ringing in the ears. Ear lavage, also known as ear irrigation, is a method of cleaning wax out of ears.
If you have had surgery or an injury in Key West that requires sutures (stitches) or staples, you were probably asked to return to the doctor or health provider to have them removed. Removing staples and sutures is essential for proper wound healing and infection control. We understand that returning to your medical provider for suture and staple removal can get in the way of other things you need to do. Reach out to us and we can provide stitch removal medical services at your location in Key West.
For Existing Patients Only
During a telehealth consult, our specialist will use technology to see and evaluate you and your health needs at the comfort of your home in Key West. Our providers work with you and determine a proper treatment plan.
