Same & next day results for parts of VA,MD,GA,FL,NY, next day results for rest of US
Our focus is keeping your safe. As a physician-owned company we are very familiar with how to test in the safest manner. Coronavirus can spread more easily indoors than outdoors. Your exposure to our healthcare worker is minimal since you are tested curbside (outside) whenever possible and you are able to avoid waiting inside at a testing center.
Most international travel requires COVID-19 PCR testing and results within a 72 hour period. By pairing with a high volume, high complexity lab, we are able to test and provide results nationwide within 12-48 hour time frame. When using our housecall option, testing must be done within time for FEDEX overnight for results.
For our house call option, from start to finish you do not have to leave the comfort of your home except to step into your vehicle at home at the time of your appointment. You book online, receive a test kit by mail, our mobile phlebotomist tests you at your home, curbside and then the mobile phlebotomist sends the kit back to our lab. Your results are back according to the result option you choose.
For our office curbside option, you will find that it is easy to make an appointment, drive to the office setting and get tested from the comfort of your car. Results are back to you according to the result option you chose at booking.
Your medical information is private. You will receive your results through a secure email.
We do not bill insurance - our services are self-pay only and tend to help people who need quick testing for travel, personal screening, clearance for work or school (reasons where an insurance company may not fully cover testing).
Same day and next day COVID-19 RT-PCR test. The RT-PCR test is a nasopharyngeal swab and what is generally required for international travel. A new service we office is the Accula point of care PCR (in select areas) and the rapid antigen test.
For our housecall option, daily, except Sunday. A list of appointment times will show as you schedule your test. Since we are closed on Sundays, if you test on a Saturday, your results will not be back until Monday. For our office location, schedules may vary. When you book an office curbside test, you will be able to see the available times. Please call, text or email us if you do not see a time that you need.
A mobile phlebotomist will perform the test at your home, curbside and either a physician, medical assistant or phlebotomist will perform the test when you choose office, curbside.
Same or next day depending on the test you choose and location. In select areas in Maryland and Virginia we can arrive with our testing kit and provide same or next day results, you choose. For other locations across the US, we mail the kit to you, a mobile phlebotomist tests you and you receive results the following evening.
You will receive your results via a secure email and you can print out, download or display digitally to your airline, employer or a school.

Our company uses multiple CLIAA certified, CAP accredited labs across the country. These labs use the TaqPath or the DTPM COVID-19 RT-PCR Test. The tests have been authorized
by FDA under Emergency Use Authorization to detect active virus. The SARS-CoV-2 RNA is generally detectable in respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
Accula POC PCR
We are now also offering a rapid PCR test through Accula at our Columbia, MD location and for some house calls in the Columbia, MD area. This rapid PCR test is not always accepted for travel so please review your airline information prior to booking to make sure this test meets the qualifications that you need.
Rapid Antigen test
We are also offering a rapid Antigen test. Again this is not generally accepted for airline travel so if you are choosing this test for airline travel please review your airline information prior to booking to make sure this test meets the qualifications that you need.
You will receive your results via a secure email that can be printed out or shown digitally to an airline, employer etc.
Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management and decisions. It is important to note that we do not provide clinical judgement with your results. A positive or negative result should always be discussed with your primary care provider.

In some cases we mail test kits to our clients prior to your test date. When your test kit arrives please set it aside in a safe space until your test date. The box that the kit arrives in will be the same box used to send it back to our lab so please open the box carefully by removing the clear tape on the outside of the box and do not destroy the box. Clear instructions will be inside for you and the phlebotomist who will test you.
