We offer two types of tests: Viral PCR tests and Serological Antibody tests. Viral PCR tests are used to determine whether you are currently infected with COVID-19 and are performed with a nasal swab sample or blood prick. Serological antibody tests determine whether you were infected with COVID-19 in the past and have since developed antibodies and are performed through a blood draw. They do not tell us whether you are actively infected with COVID-19.
The latest research shows that it is likely that you have at least partial immunity for at least some period of time. Research is currently underway and we are hoping to know more soon.
In accordance with current CDC guidelines, you should quarantine for 14 days.
A positive antibody result means that you have been exposed to COVID-19 in either the distant or recent past. We include a free virtual visit with the doctor for all positives to discuss the results and next course of action.
You will have your results before reaching your destination. Takes 5-10 minutes.
As your body begins to produce antibodies to fend of the virus, you may be producing some antibodies but not quite enough to get rid of the virus. So yes, you could have antibodies and an active infection.
They are wearing PPE, masks, eye-protection in each visit. All of our clinicians are being temperature checked and screened for symptoms themselves on a daily basis.
We accept most insurance but you can also just do cash-pay.
If we accept your insurance, it will pay for everything except the co-pay.
Viral PCR testing is approximately 99% accurate. Unlike other rapid result tests currently available, our serology antibody test is 100% specific. This means our test has zero false positives.
Your result will be sent to you via text or email as soon as within minutes of taking the test.
For home testing, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and San Francisco. For Drive-thru, Newport Beach currently and in the process of opening up three other sites in California.
Typically in about 10-15 minutes but will fluctuate based on volume.
Our service of collection of the sample and our physicians interpretation of results is not covered by insurance – however, accept most major PPO plans and medicare and only charge a $50 copay for whats not covered. If no insurance or just willing to cash-pay, we just charge the advertised amount for the tests.
