COVID-19 Services

Along with antigen rapid testing we also offer the following services. If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page.

COVID-19 Lab-Based PCR Testing

Like the rapid test, the COVID-19 lab-based PCR test is a nasal swab test. The test is a molecular test and takes about 3 to 7 days to process. This test is typically covered by most major insurances. Click here to learn more.

Antibody Testing

Antibody blood tests, also called antibody tests, check your blood by looking for antibodies, which show if you had a previous infection with the virus. Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections. Depending on when someone was infected and the timing of the test, the test may not find antibodies in someone with a current COVID-19 infection.

In addition to the antibody blood test, we highly recommend receiving the nasopharyngeal swab (COVID-19 test) to check for viral shedding, especially if you are asymptomatic. Co-testing is the best way to receive the most accurate results. If interested, please let the provider know during your telehealth visit.

COVID-19 Treatment

Whether you test positive or negative, our providers are here for you until you are feeling better. To help monitor your health, we recommend checking in with us virtually every 1-2 days until you are no longer experiencing symptoms. If we suspect the development of pneumonia or other severe symptoms, antibiotics or additional medical treatment might be required. Please schedule a telehealth visit to meet with our providers. We will recommend re-testing as needed.
