We currently offer COVID-19 antibody testing, PCR testing, and rapid swabs. These tests can provide information on whether you have previously been exposed or may be a current carrier of the virus. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment if you need COVID testing.
Antibody testing can provide information as to whether a patient has previously been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. If you have been exposed, even unknowingly, your body may produce antibodies in response. Although the latest information is constantly changing, it is believed that patients who have antibodies present may experience less severe symptoms, or no symptoms at all if later exposed to the virus compared to those without antibodies. Antibody testing can be billed through insurance.
COVID Swab Testing
PCR testing is considered the most accurate method for COVID testing currently available. The anterior nares are swabbed and the sample is sent out to the lab for testing. Most results return in 3-5 days.
Rapid (Antigen) Testing
In addition to PCR testing, our office also offers rapid COVID testing. These tests are offered on a first come, first serve basis due to limited supplies. Results return in 15 minutes and have an 86% accuracy rate. The cost for rapid testing is a flat rate of $100 out of pocket; we do not bill rapid testing through insurance. Please call the office for more details and for availability.
