Some airlines require a PCR test in order to travel. Some employers require them, as well. PCR testing is the “gold standard” and is, to date, the most accurate. Rapid testing is a good option for those who need immediate (15 minute) results and do not specifically require a PCR test.
PCR test results are available next day (24-36 hours), excluding holidays. Rapid test results are available in about 15 minutes.
You must use our appointment scheduling portal as instructed above to receive a COVID test. Walk-ins are always welcome at our urgent care locations for non-COVID related illnesses and ailments.
The time slot you will choose using our scheduling system is to secure the appointment for the day you chose and we will assign a swabbing time after the virtual visit.
As a reminder, our process is as follows, the day of your appointment, we will verify your insurance or call to collect payment if you are a cash patient. You will receive a link on your cell phone for a virtual visit with our provider sometime after 8:00 am on the day you booked your appointment. Our calls for virtual visits are generally between 8 am to 4 pm.
During that virtual visit, you will be assigned a time to come in for your swabbing appointment between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm at the location where you booked your appointment. PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE BUILDING, YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME WILL BE ASSIGNED TO YOU FOR A DRIVE-THRU SWAB BY THE PROVIDER DURING YOUR VIRTUAL VISIT.
If you are told you have a positive viral test, most likely you currently have an active COVID-19 infection and you can give the virus to others. Follow instructions from your provider about isolation and when you can leave home.
If you are told you have a negative viral test, most likely you do NOT currently have an active COVID-19 infection. However, there is a small possibility the result is a false negative. Continue taking steps to protect yourself and prevent spread of the virus.

After being contacted by the doctor, attending the virtual visit, being swabbed, and leaving the clinic, you will be contacted by our staff via telephone to give you your results. If you need an email as proof of results, please let our staff know and we can provide an email for you.
