COVID Testing

 Results in 20 minutes

Gentle Nose Only Swab

Your child has a cough, a fever and you want them to be seen by their doctor today.   Until now, with  COVID in the community that meant an ER visit or Urgent Care and that was a scary thought all in itself. 

 

Now,  you can have the confidence of having your child seen by Dr Herd in our office, you will know that the fever and/or cough is not COVID and you don't have to go to the ER or have a painful COVID test.   We are now doing rapid COVID testing that is a simple nasal swab ( just liked the simple Flu testing we have done for years here at our office).  Our usual screening questions help identify who should and can be tested at our office and we direct you on how the testing will be done.  You wait in your car in the office parking lot after the testing and we let you know the results in less than 20 minutes.  With a COVID test result that is negative, we can bring you and your child into the office to be seen by Dr Herd to help determine the non-COVID cause of your child's fever, cough etc.  

 

For Dr Herd's registered patients and Dr Derieg's registered patients our office will bill your child's health insurance company for the cost of testing.  For family members that are not our registered patients, the cost of the test will need to be paid prior to doing testing.

 

 

As with any testing or service at our office for registered patients, if your insurance company does not pay for the testing,  you are responsible for to pay for the cost of testing.
