The clinic staff perform two types of COVID-19 testing, an antibody test and an antigen test. Both tests require an appointment and are done while you remain in your car parked directly behind our clinic. Both tests are approved for use by the FDA through the Emergency Use Authorization Act.
The antibody test confirms both a current infection and a past infection based on the type of antibodies detected. It can detect a current infection 3-5 days after a fever or 7-14 days after exposure to COVID-19. The test is performed by taking a fingerstick drop of blood with results in 15 minutes. The cost of the test is $124.00 by cash or credit card. We do not take insurance for COVID-19 testing.
The antigen test is a PCR test that detects the actual COVID-19 virus or viral particles in the nose. This test fulfills the entry requirements set by most states and countries for entry without quarantining. Refer to the state or country regulations for current travel restrictions and specific testing guidelines for this test.
The antigen test requires a swab sample taken from the front part of the nose. The results are sent to a CLIA certified laboratory approved by the federal government for testing. The results are received within 72 hours. The cost is $176 for the 72-hour test. Payments may be made by cash or credit card. We do not take insurance for COVID-19 testing.
If you require an expedited test in 24 or 48 hours, you must arrive at the office for testing before 3 pm to guarantee expedited results. The cost for the 48-hour expedited test is $246, and the cost for the 24-hour expedited test is $358. Payments may be made by cash or credit card. We do not take insurance for COVID-19 testing.
