Coronavirus:  Testing Information

We are currently doing on site Covid-19 testing for Covid-19 virus using the Abbot Labs ID Now technology.  This is a genetic test, similar to the PCR test.  It detects the RNA, or genetic material from the virus.  It is also called a Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAAT) test, or a molecular test.

 

All Covid vists are done outside in our back parking lot or in our "Test Tunnel."  You may be tested with or without symptoms. If, you have been exposed to someone with the Covid virus we recommend waiting until day 5 after the exposure to be tested. We test all age groups. For send out tests, results are typically back in 12-24 hours.  We will call you when we get your results.  We can send a secure email with results or provide a hard copy if preferred.

 

You do not make an appointment but you can visit our website during office hours to “hold your spot” in line. This is not an appointment time. You will receive text message updates regarding your position in line. Upon arrival, please proceed to the back parking area for parking instructions. Then you will need to call the clinic at 929-1234 to complete your registration. This is  how we know that you are here.

 

Most insurances are covering the office visit and the lab test for acute testing.  

We rely on our local health department, local hospital infectious disease department, and the CDC for information.  We will always attempt to have the most recent recommendations determine what we do to evaluate and advise you.
