What is a COVID-19 PCR test?

The PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test detects the presence of the virus’ genetic material from a sample collected through a nasal swab. The specimen is refrigerated and sent by our office to the lab and the results come back in a few days.

FAQ

How accurate are COVID-19 PCR tests?

COVID-19 PCR tests are very accurate. It is sensitive enough to detect the virus even in the smallest samples and in people who are not showing any symptoms.

What is the difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test?

The difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test is that the former takes a few days to get results but the results are more accurate because it can detect small amounts of the virus even when there are no symptoms. The latter, on the other hand, can generate results in as little as 15 minutes but can only detect if the virus is already active in your body.

Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?

Yes, there are at-home tests for COVID-19 that let you do the specimen collection yourself. For more accurate results from a healthcare professional, get tested at a testing center near you.

What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?

The different types of COVID-19 tests are the rapid antigen test, RT-PCR test, and the COVID antibody test. The rapid antigen and PCR tests both help detect if your child has an existing COVID infection. The main difference is that rapid tests generate results faster than PCR tests, but PCR tests generate more accurate results than rapid tests.

On the other hand, the COVID antibody test detects if your child has antibodies that indicate they had a COVID infection in the past.

What should parents do while waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results?

While waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results, parents should keep their child at home and away from other family members. Follow CDC recommendations regarding quarantine measures. Call a healthcare provider when your child gets sick and experiences severe symptoms.

Needed a rapid antigen test for travel the next day. Made the appointment online but they were also accepting walk-ins. No wait time if you fill your information online. Was done in 10 mins. Most people waited outside for their results(20 mins) but it’s not necessary because they upload it on the portal. Very quick and easy. Highly recommend.

I went for an immigration exam. The only reason for me taking out 1 star is because they don’t say the surgeon don’t stay in this location. So after you pay, do the initial exams (i just have to do the Gold plus test) you will need schedule to see the surgeon in Bronx. But other this… everything (even in the Bronx) was really fast and efficient….

I've been to few urgent care centers and this by far was the best. I was able to call and make an appointment for my daughter. When we arrived we waited less than 5 minutes and was directed to the room. The ladies up front were friendly, very helpful, and amazing. Excellent customer service Answered any questions I had regarding my daughter insurance. I need to give a huge shout out to Stephanie R, Kim and Shea. Highly recommended!!
