Do you offer rapid and PCR testing for COVID-19 infection by nasal swab?
Nasal swabs directly detect the presence of the virus.
Rapid (antigen) tests result within 15 minutes. The entire visit takes about an hour.
Nasal swabs are the best test for patients with signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Your doctor will help you decide when to get tested, and which test to get!
FOR ESTABLISHED PATIENTS: to schedule a COVID rapid and/or PCR swab, schedule a phone or video visit with your regular doctor at any Gwinnett Clinic office. The doctor can order your swab to be done within 24 hours! This is the simplest way to schedule your test!
FOR NEW PATIENTS OR INDIVIDUALS WHO DESIRE SAME DAY TESTING: schedule a phone or video visit with a doctor at the Webb Gin or Johns Creek clinics.
