IN-CLINIC RAPID TESTING AVAILABLE BY APPOINTMENT.
The provider or our trained clinical staff will put on protective clothes, mask and face shield, and then collect samples.
Collecting a sample is usually taken from the nose. This mildly uncomfortable process, the same used to test for influenza, takes just a few seconds.
The provider then packages the samples according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and then the samples are shipped to a laboratory. The laboratory tests the specimens for the presence of the new coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.
The provider reports the test results to the patient. If the test is positive, the provider also reports this to the public health authorities.
Due to the high volume of COVID-19 testing, we anticipate your test results will be available within 2-3 days as per laboratory guidance. After your screening, you should self-isolate at home if you show symptoms. If your test shows that you have been infected, we will advise you on next steps.
If you have insurance, according to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), insurance providers are not imposing out-of-pocket expenses for COVID-19 testing. Any patient responsibility (copays, coinsurance, deductibles) are waived by insurance providers.
For patients without insurance or employers requesting tests, testing is available at the cost of $244.
