How can I get a COVID-19 test?

It’s important to first address what type of test you are seeking/might need.

Dr. West is available for COVID-19 consultations  ($150 for non-members). Consults are valuable for patients who are currently symptomatic or asymptomatic and seeking testing because they believe they might have been exposed, or would like to be tested before going back to work, attending school or other activities.

Please see the chart above for all the test options we have available in the office.

What if I have symptoms?

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.

What if I don’t have symptoms but want to get a test?

Call the office to schedule a consultation. Dr. West can discuss the different types of tests available and determine what makes the most sense for you.

What if I do not have symptoms but want to get a test?

Call the office to schedule a consultation. Dr. West can discuss the different types of tests available and determine what makes the most sense for you. 

What if I think I had COVID-19 but I am no longer symptomatic?

If you believe that you recently had COVID-19, you may be a good candidate for a Serum Antibody Testing. If this is the case, we would set up a consultation to make sure the correct time frame has passed and the right test is being ordered.

Where can I go for more information about COVID-19?

Because information is constantly changing, we suggest visiting the CDC Website for the latest information about symptoms, testing, prevention and other guidelines.

Dr. West is also conducting twice-a-month Zoom calls on Thursdays at noon (EST)  to provide the latest information and answer questions. If you would like information to join the call, please join our contact list here.

You can also check with your own primary care provider (if you are not a member of the practice) and your local health department.

COVID-19 Travel Information

All international travel and some stateside travel requires proof of a negative PCR nasal swab test taken within 72 hours of departure. As numbers rise, oftentimes available PCRs may not be back in 72 hours. Some countries allow the test to be done 4 or more days before departure. For more information click here.
