RAPID COVID TESTING
We are pleased to be able to offer rapid molecular testing for our patients. SEBP is using the Abbott ID Now platform which is a rapid molecular NAAT test that can provide same day results. At this time, we are offering outpatient testing to our asymptomatic patients who need a test to clear them from COVID infection. Please email us or call our office to make an appointment. Patients who have symptoms can still get same day tests, when they see an MD to evaluate their illness. Please note the following:
- Outpatient testing is only for asymptomatic patients. If your child has any symptoms that could possibly be due to COVID, you will be asked to schedule an appointment with your doctor. A test can be done at that time.
- Outpatient visits are for testing only, this is not an office visit with the doctor. If you have questions or need advice, you will be asked to reschedule for an appointment with your doctor; testing can be done during that visit.
- If you need a rapid test for travel, this may NOT be an acceptable test if an RT-PCR is required. An RT-PCR is a different test and the Abbott ID Now does not fulfill this requirement. The Abbott ID Now test is a NAAT test, so check what test is needed for your travel plans.
