Join in on future development for COVID testing by joining one of our research studies
Testing can occur in our drive through services or in clinic during your regular appointment
We can execute two kinds of COVID-19 tests, diagnostic and antibody testing. Direct viral tests are used by doctors to diagnose people with or without symptoms related to COVID-19. Either a simple rapid antigen test or more complex PCR test can be obtained. Sometimes both are used. Specimen Samples are taken from the patient’s nose or throat. Rapid Antigen are ideal for athletic programs, school events and family visits. PCR tests are more confirmatory in nature when needed.
If you test positive for COVID-19, Our clinical staff will walk you through the next steps. Depending on your symptoms, you might be advised to self-isolate at home or go to the emergency room if necessary. We will check in with you daily to monitor your progress.
Antibody tests check your blood by looking for antibodies, which may tell you if you had a past infection with the virus or have been vaccinated

We typically utilize a drive through testing procedure. Simply follow the signs, drive up and get swabbed. Alternatively, testing can be accomplished inside the clinic during a regular appointment. Our clinicians will take your samples, and evaluate your symptoms, and answer any questions.
