At Charter Clinic Immediate Care, we continue to implement exceptional health care services and provide the latest and best tests available to our patients. COVID-19 testing is also available for Preoperative procedures and travel. For COVID-19 testing there is no need to call ahead for an appointment. WALK-INS are always welcome!
⇨⇨ We offer COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) RT-PCR testing with AIT laboratory. We highly depend on the PCR testing for confirmation of COVID-19 infection for anyone with symptoms. Depending on the timeline of the exposure, one test may be more appropriate than the other. This can be discussed with the provider at the time of your visit. This test is very accurate for current and early detection. Our goal is to have your result within 1-3 days, depending on the day of the week. Please register for test tracking at https://cov19.health/#/ Choose register as a new patient and office location code will be INGRMDID.
⇨⇨ Our in-house rapid test is performed with Quidel Sofia 2 technology. This test is approved by FDA for emergency use authorizations. The Sofia SARS-CoV-2 Antigen FIA, with the Sofia 2 and Sofia analyzers, provides automated and objective results in 15 minutes!
These tests are available to all, with or without symptoms. The cost of these tests with or without insurance is performed at no cost to you but you are responsible for the cost of the copay or office visit. Please remember that we are still a medical facility and anyone getting tested here will be examined by a licensed medical provider and thus subject to their copay and/or office visit cost.
You should have a conversation with your medical provider at the time of the visit if the exposure occurred less than 3-5 days ago to determine which test is best for you. This is due to the recent findings that infected people show a higher viral load earlier in the disease process with or without symptoms.
Please stay safe and let us know if we can help and thank you for choosing Charter Clinic Immediate Care.
