We offer tests to detect current COVID-19 infection including the PCR Swab Test and the Rapid Antigen test. We also offer the Antibody test to detect prior exposure to the virus. Our new Rapid Antigen test is a swab test that detects current COVID-19 infection, just like a flu or strep swab test. Our improved antibody test has 100% specificity to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

*NEW* RAPID 15 MINUTE COIVD-19 ANTIGEN TEST
This test screens for new infections but in a different way. It looks for protein traces of the virus — known as antigens – for early identification of an active COVID-19 infection in patients. The same approach is used in rapid tests for flu, strep throat and other infections that are run at the hospital or doctor's office.
Yes, this test detects the presence of the virus and an active infection or carrier status.
Results are known in 15 minutes.
The Rapid test is 100% specific to the Sars Cov virus that causes COVID. When compared to PCR testing this test has an overall agreement of 97.9%
This test is performed with a nasal swab, like a nasal swab used for detection of the flu. This is much more comfortable than the deep nasal swab used for PCR tests.

COVID-19 PCR TEST
The PCR test is the deep nasal swab test that looks for genetic material of the coronavirus. The test uses a technology called PCR (polymerase chain reaction), samples are sent to a centralized lab for analysis, and results are generally available in 3-5 days.
COVID-19 ANTIBODY TEST
Antigen testing detects specific proteins or molecules on a virus. PCR testing detects genetic material. Both tests detect the presence of the virus. Antigen testing results are available at time of visit, within 15 minutes. PCR tests are sent to an outside lab for results and can take 3-5 days for results.
WHICH TEST SHOULD I HAVE?
Rapid Antigen testing detects an active infection with results in as little as 15 minutes. It works the same as rapid tests for flu, strep throat and other infections that are run at the hospital or doctor's office. If you are symptomatic or looking to see if you are an asymptomatic carrier this is the test to have performed.
PCR testing requires a deep nasal swab that is sent to an outside lab for testing and can take 3-5 days for results. A PCR test may be used to confirm antigen testing based on the providers discretion.
Antibody testing requires a blood draw test and look for previous exposure to COVID-19. It is not appropriate for use if you currently having symptoms or want to diagnose a current infection.
Our providers can discuss all testing options with you.

An office visit and evaluation by a provider is required. Insurances will cover the office visit, but you may have an urgent care copay or deductible. If you do not have insurance, an office visit is $95. The Rapid COVID testing is new and there is not an insurance code for the test yet. The test is $50 that is paid at time of visit.
The office visit and lab fee will be charged separately. Most insurances have agreed to cover costs related o COVID-19 testing. We recommend that you check with your insurance provider to verify any co-pays or deductibles you will be responsible for. If you do not have insurance, an in-office visit is $95, and you will receive a bill for from the outside lab facility that performs the sample analysis - this can range from $45-$145.
