For a limited time, the Ken Starr MD Wellness Group is offering rapid COVID testing.
Screening Antigen testing for Active Infection
We use the point of care CareStart Rapid Diagnostic Test by Access Bio, Inc. manufactured by Intrivo Diagnostics for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 Antigen. This is a quick and simple nasal swab that provides results in 15 minutes. This is a screening test to determine if you are contagious. It is not a highly sensitive diagnostic test to determine low levels of infection. Positive results are reported to the health department as required by law.
Antibody testing for a history of Infection.
One drop of blood and 15 minutes later, we’ll tell you if you’ve had an antibody response to COVID. Meaning you’ll know if you’ve been exposed and if your body has had an adequate immune response to COVID 19. The test is not for active infection. We don’t test if you’re sick. This is answering the question of ” have I had COVID?”. Not ” do I have COVID?” An antibody response may not develop for a week after infection. The test requires preregistration and prepayment: Call to schedule your test today.
