Dr. Khare was featured talking about #masks4all in the Chicago Tribune:
“I think if everyone used masks, it would decrease the amount of transmission of the virus,” said Dr. Rahul Khare, CEO of the Innovative Express Care immediate care facility on the North Side. “By putting a face mask over your nose and mouth, you’re decreasing the amount of the virus particles and therefore decreasing transmission rates.”
Dr. Khare recently joined FOX Chicago for a live segment from the Innovative Express Care COVID-19 testing tent. Watch the segment here and learn more about the virus, including what Dr. Khare and team are doing to fight the pandemic in Chicago.

Innovative Express Care was recently featured in the Chicago Sun-Times for our use of telemedicine to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Telemedicine has been offered at our clinic since we opened in 2015. When COVID-19 struck Chicago, we quickly utilized the system for screening patients who may need to be tested. Read more here.
Innovative Express Care is expediting COVID-19 testing for essential healthcare workers and first responders who are struggling to be seen at the testing sites established by the government. The urgent care is located at 2400 N. Ashland Avenue.
COVID-19 testing is done in an outdoor medical tent. Individuals may also be tested for flu or strep during their visit to Innovative Express Care.
A telemedicine screening is required for the general public prior to testing, however healthcare workers and first responders can bypass that step and expedite the process in order to be tested quickly and ensure the safety of the patients they serve.
If you are a healthcare worker who is in need of a COVID-19 test, please contact our office to schedule a visit. You will be asked to provide an ID that indicates your employment. Innovative Express Care will bill your insurance for the medical testing and visit.
Innovative Express Care is featured in this article by Block Club Chicago for our COVID-19 response. Our clinicians have screened over 500 patients to date and tested around 250. Of those tested, 31 have been positive for COVID-19. Innovative Express Care is the only urgent care in Chicago testing for COVID-19. We are proud to be serving our community.
Dr. Khare spoke with WGN-TV today and demonstrated how our COVID-19 telemedicine screenings work.
