Who should get tested for COVID-19?
You should get tested for COVID-19 if:
- you have COVID-19 symptoms
- you have been exposed to or been in close contact with a person who you know or suspect is infected with COVID-19
- close contact means within six feet for 15 minutes or more
- the COVID Alert NY app informs you that you’ve been exposed to the virus from close contact.
- you need to be screened for workplaces, schools, or events
- you are planning to travel or arriving from travel
- you are advised to get tested by a healthcare professional or a public health official
How long should I wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case?
You should not wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case, regardless of your vaccination status. You need to get tested at least 5 days after exposure or earlier if you have COVID symptoms.
Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?
There are at-home tests for COVID-19. You can order free tests from COVIDtests.gov or from your local health department. Home COVID tests are also available in pharmacies, retail stores, and authorized online sellers.
How accurate are COVID-19 PCR tests?
COVID-19 PCR tests are accurate and are considered the gold standard for COVID testing. This type of test is more sensitive and is mostly processed by health professionals in a laboratory.
How accurate are rapid COVID-19 tests?
Rapid COVID-19 tests are accurate enough to detect the presence of the virus in symptomatic individuals. However, if it shows a negative result despite the presence of COVID-19 symptoms, an RT-PCR test is needed to confirm it.
Can the tests determine which COVID-19 variants I have antibodies to?
COVID tests cannot determine which COVID-19 variants you have antibodies to. Besides, antibodies from previous COVID infections are not likely to protect you from any type of COVID variant.
Is it recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?
It is not recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to test for immunity. It is also not recommended for use to assess a person’s need for vaccination or quarantine.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!
