Testing

ExpressMD can provide COVID-19 testing for those experiencing Covid 19 symptoms as well as those without symptoms but who may have been exposed. Our staff will review your history, current symptoms and perform and examination before ordering a test.

What to expect with your Covid 19 test?

We offer both the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and rapid antigen tests.   The PCR is the gold standard in testing as it is the most accurate diagnostic test.  This test requires specialized equipment and is sent out to our partner reference lab for results.  The turnaround time for the PCR test is 24-72 hours.  The rapid antigen test, on the other hand, is less accurate but much more convenient in that results are obtained within 15 minutes.

The testing process is very convenient for you.  Simply check-in online to minimize your wait or just call the clinic when you arrive in the parking lot.  Most testing is done curbside for your convenience.  For either the PCR or rapid test, our techs will obtain a sample utilizing a nasal swab.
