Services > Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 Testing
The clinic now offers the 15-Minute Antigen test, the Serological Antibody Test as well as the PCR Swab for any individuals who may have been exposed to the virus, had COVID-19 symptoms or are currently having symptoms. The tests are done with an evaluation from our Medical Providers. No referrals needed. For more technical details of the tests, please see the Home Page for patient information from the Commercial Labs we use.
Serological tests for Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 are intended for ANY individual who may have had COVID-19 symptoms but are no longer symptomatic or think they may have had exposure. The tests determine the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and can help identify individuals who have been exposed past or present to the virus. Both the Antigen and PCR swab can determine active infections.
Confirmation of infection with SARS-CoV-2 must be made through a combination of clinical evaluation and other applicable tests.
This is not drive through rapid testing, but rather a systematic approach using a commercially available, widely used test with results available within days of collection of the specimen.
The tests we offer has been used in the past to focus on high priority First Responders and health care workers. We anticipate that COVID-19 test costs are going to be covered by commercial insurance. This includes Medicare and Medicaid. For Private Pay Patients, there is a steep discount and we are more than willing to work out a payment plan to fit your budget if necessary. For example, a New Private Pay Patient would be charged $113 for the Office Visit and $50 for the Antigen Test. Call us at (985) 690-8300 and let us know how we can best serve you!
