We are excited to announce the availability of COVID-19 testing in the office. It is a combined influenza A & B and COVID 19 PCR test. This is the test that is currently the most accurate test available and required by the health department to return to school. The test takes ~20-30 minutes so we will have results the same day (exact timing depends on the number of tests being performed).
We are not sure, however, if insurance will cover in office testing. If not covered, the test costs $75.
We still will obtain swabs and send out to the UR Medicine laboratory if you choose to not have the testing done in office. Currently we receive test results in approximately 24-72 hours.
In either scenario, as soon as we receive results we will let you know and forward the appropriate documents to the school.
Please continue to “socially distance” and minimize your exposure risks.
