How to get COVID-19 Testing

If you are experiencing upper respiratory symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19 (cough, fever, body aches, fatigue, recent loss of taste), or believe you were previously infected by the virus, Pulse-MD offers COVID-19 rapid, PCR, and antibody tests. We also do COVID-19 testing for travel, return to school and return to work.

To be tested, you must first complete a Virtual Visit.

You will be connected via Virtual Visit with a medical provider. If you meet the criteria, the provider will order your COVID-19 test and clear you to proceed to the testing site.

Important Information:

  • Viral testing is performed Monday through Friday, outside select offices. PCR swabbing is available M-F 9am-5pm. Rapid 15 minute testing is available M-F 9am-3pm.
  • Antibody tests are offered during regular operating hours.
  • Please confirm location and hours during your virtual visit.
  • Please note that our hours are subject to change without notice and we recommend calling ahead of your visit.
  • Due to high demand for COVID-19 Testing, wait times may be longer than usual.
