COVID-19 FAMILY MEDICAL CENTER FAQ

1. Who can be tested?

We are doing IGG and IGM antibody testing and nasal swab testing for ALL patients (even with no symptoms). We will advise you on the best test for your circumstances during your visit. Per LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics, current turnaround time for both tests are 5-7 days.

2. Should I get a nasal swab, the rapid antibody test, or the sendout/blood draw antibody test? 

You will be advised your visit by a provider which is the most appropriate option for you.

3. Do you have COVID-19 Rapid Antibody Tests?

Yes. We are fully stocked with rapid antibody tests.

4. I don’t have insurance. Can I still be tested?

Yes, and we have lowered our uninsured office visit for COVID patients to $75.

5. Do I need to make an appointment?

No. Family Medical Center ONLY takes walk-ins.

6. What do I do if my results are positive for COVID-19?

You will be required to self-quarantine and limit contact with others for 14 days. Further treatment and medication options will be provided at time of results. We can also provide a 14 day quarantine letter to your employer at no charge.

7. What if I am healthy? Can I still come to Family Medical Center? 

Yes. Family Medical Center separates healthy and sick people in the waiting room to limit exposure and potential spread of airborne illness. Some patients choose to wait outside. Also, if anyone is showing symptoms such as fever or cough, they are immediately escorted into a patient room away from other patients. Family Medical Center has a top of the line HEPA filtration system throughout the building, including waiting rooms, to minimize the spread of airborne illnesses.

8. Are you a drive-thru testing center? 

No. However, you do not need an appointment and are welcome to call ahead for current wait times: (770) 228-2641.
