RAPID COVID TESTING AND PCR TESTING AVAILABLE !
Suncoast Urgent Care is now offering both tests for the SARS-CoV-2, Rapid tests and the PCR RNA test. This is a test for active infection !
We are also performing antibody tests for patients who believe they may have had the infection.
Antibody testing is not advised to be performed if your symptoms started less then 10 days prior as this is looking for your bodies immune system response to the infection.
Please note the RAPID COVID TEST results are available in approximately 15 minutes ! Insurance does not cover our test, this is a cash pay test only.
The PCR test is sent out to a laboratory and typically takes 48 hours to process**. Insurance will cover your visit if you have a PCR test.
**If you are in urgent need of a test results please discuss with our staff. Unfortunately we have no control over turnaround time. Also if you arrive after our tests are picked up for the day, usually around 5pm the test will not go out until the following day. If your test result is not clear after the first run, our lab will run it over again, which would require an additional day.
Note we are following CDC recommendations on sanitizing all spaces of our facilites using hospital grade disinfectants !
