We provide both a rapid antigen (nasal swab) test and a saliva-based COVID-19 RT-PCR test. The PCR test is often required for travel outside of the continental United States, for admission into a nursing facility, or for return to employment. PCR as been demonstrated to be more sensitive and accurate than the standard COVID-19 anterior nasal swab test at detecting the presence of coronavirus.
While results from the rapid test can be provided in the office at the time of the appointment, PCR testing requires laboratory processing, with typically a 1-3 business day turnaround time.
We overnight ship all specimens collected for the RT-PCR test, Mon-Fri.
If you have been exposed to a known Covid-19 positive individual or are experiencing symptoms then you may qualify for free Covid-19 testing through your insurance or government-sponsored programs. Contact us for more information.
