Call the office to schedule your same-day antigen, same-day PCR, or two-day PCR test. Consultations with Dr. West are no longer required. However, if you have symptoms or any COVID-related questions, a brief telephone consultation with the doctor prior to your appointment is recommended.
If you know you need a specific type of test for work or travel, you may schedule the test alone without a consultation.
Please see the chart above for all the test options we have available in the office.
If you are currently ill and think you might have COVID-19, call our office to schedule a COVID-19 consultation. Dr. West can help you determine if you require a COVID-19 viral RNA test to learn if you have an acute infection. Note that the CDC has issued guidelines for viral RNA and antigen testing to determine acute infection. You can read those here.
If you know you need a specific type of test, such as a rapid antigen test or a same-day PCR test, call the office to schedule the test. If you aren’t sure which test you need, you can schedule a brief consultation with Dr. West. She can discuss the different types of tests available and determine what makes the most sense for you.
If you believe that you recently had COVID-19, you may be a good candidate for serum antibody testing. If this is the case, we will set up a consultation to make sure the correct time frame has passed and the right test is ordered.
Because information is constantly changing, we suggest visiting the CDC website for the latest information about symptoms, testing, prevention, and other guidelines.
You can also check with your own primary care provider (if you are not a member of the practice) and your local health department.
All international travel and some domestic travel requires proof of a negative PCR nasal swab test taken within 72 hours of departure. As case numbers rise, PCR test results may not be available within 72 hours. Some countries allow the test to be done 4 or more days before departure. For more information click here.
