Our COVID-19 Tests

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer three types of COVID-19 testing:

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Tests

PCR tests are considered the gold standard of COVID-19 testing. They can be administered to patients with or without symptoms and are generally more accurate than rapid tests. A PCR test identifies viral genetic material of COVID-19, both while someone is actively infected and after the acute illness. The downside to PCR tests is that results can sometimes take a few days.

Rapid Antigen Tests

A rapid antigen test can be administered to patients with or without symptoms. Generally, they are less accurate than PCR tests and are best for those in the peak stage of infection (within the first few days of experiencing symptoms). Rapid tests are ideal if you need a quick result; you’ll be able to find out within as little as 15 minutes whether or not you have the virus.

Antibody Tests

COVID-19 antibody tests determine if you have antibodies (proteins) in your blood that fight the COVID-19 virus. A positive antibody test means you may have had a COVID-19 infection in the past and may be immune to infection for a period of time, although scientists are still discovering how long immunity lasts and how protected individuals are.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
