Very good triage. PA listened to my concerns. They did Covid test and relieved it was negative. PA gave clear diagnosis and script for possible infection. Very good office procedures.

Went for COVID testing. Positives - did a very good job with curbside car. Everyone was nice and professional. Negatives - should have phone number to call easily readable from car. Still took 90 minutes even with appointment.

They were getting slammed with COVID testing, so while the wait time was long, it was very reasonably. They actually got me in before they thought they would.

I made an appt for 3pm and wasn’t seen until after 4pm. I thought booking an appt would make it faster but it didn’t. I was there for a quick covid test that took 15mins.

COVID Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost in Tucson?

    In many cases, COVID testing can be free. Many state and local health departments continue to offer free testing to community residents as part of their response to the pandemic. In other cases, commercially insured patients, or those on Medicare or Medicaid, may receive testing at no out of pocket cost, or with a nominal office visit copay. For cash paying patients, or those that need rapid COVID testing which will deliver results in under an hour, COVID tests can range from $50 to $150 each. It is best to call your healthcare provider prior to getting tested to better understand the cost of the specific test you require.

  • Where can I get free COVID testing in Tucson?

    COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. Check with your Tucson-area health department as they are generally a good source for free COVID tests, or can at least point you in the right direction. Additionally, you can ask your primary care provider to recommend a free COVID test site.

  • Where can I get COVID testing in Tucson?

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Tucson including urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care offices, health departments, and more. Different venues will have different types of tests available, many at different price points. Some testing sites are allowing walk-in patients, however, many are still requiring some degree of advance booking to control patient volume.

  • Where can I get a rapid COVID test in Tucson?

    Rapid testing—both PCR (molecular) and antigen tests—is offered through many Tucson-area urgent care centers and physician offices, usually at an additional cost ranging from $50 up to $150 per test. Usually this will allow you to get results back in under an hour, and require advanced booking through the provider. However, if you can wait 24 hours for your results, many labs are turning around send-out lab tests in that time frame, which could save you some money.

  • How to make an appointment for COVID testing in Tucson?

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Tucson are bookable directly through Solv. Simply browse the list of healthcare providers conducting COVID tests above, find one with a “Book Online” button, and book a time that aligns with your schedule stating “COVID-19 Test” as your reason for visit.

  • Can I get tested for antibodies if I am sick with COVID-19 Tucson?

    An antibody test for COVID-19 might inform you if you previously had a coronavirus infection. Because it can take between 1–3 weeks after an infection for your body to develop these antibodies, an antibody test during an active infection would not be successful. To see if you are currently infected, you need a viral test.

  • Do I need a COVID test if I have been vaccinated?

    Even if you have been fully vaccinated, if you have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, experts believe that you should be tested yourself, particularly if you are experiencing cold and flu symptoms commonly aligned with the coronavirus.

  • How long does COVID testing take?

    Getting a COVID test is quick. Most tests are done with a nasal swab, which takes less than a minute to swab both nostrils. Depending on where you get your COVID test, this means you could be in and out of the testing site in as little as 10-15 minutes. During busy times—particularly around holidays—testing sites may be busier than usual and wait times may be longer.

  • How long does it take to get COVID test results in Tucson?

    Most labs are returning send-out molecular (PCR) COVID test results within 24-48 hours of the test. Some sites take longer, so call and ask if the reason for the test is proof for travel. Rapid COVID tests are processed on-site and are able to deliver results in under an hour, sometimes in as little as 15 min.

  • Do COVID tests detect the Delta variant and Omicron variant?

    Regular COVID tests are able to detect both the Delta variant and Omicron variant in that they can determine whether or not you have the coronavirus. However, they can't tell which variation is involved. That would necessitate genomic sequencing, which is a different process from regular virus testing that not all labs can undertake. Sequencing is uncommon and can cost up to $100 per test. Since the treatment is the same for any variant, it is not clinically useful to an individual patient to know whether the infection was caused by a variant or not.

Recent COVID Testing Reviews (20)

Went in for a covid test. Everyone was friendly and help full when I called. The call back nurse gave easy to follow instructions and was very nice. The NP was wonderful and took time to explain everything to me. What to whatch for if I needed a retest. The staff was understanding that my husband is a 1st responder so I need to get tested before he could return to work.

- Verified patient on 1/12

They should have told us when scheduling the COVID testing results was 7-14 Days out. We would have gone elsewhere. And given our son is a cancer patient coming home from the hospital and that I traveled a week ago to CA we need to get results ASAP. So now we have to go get a rapid test. Communication!

- Verified patient on 6/23

The wait time was 2hrs outside in my vehicle. Suggestion would be to let patients know ahead of time. The tech was very nice. The doctor was rude and well her bedside manner? Didn’t have one. Was told that I wax Covid negative but if I wanted further care I would need to go into the lobby and wait. I didn’t go for COVID testing, I went in because I couldn’t breath.

Front desk girl who checked me in was very nice when she completed my check in call after having me wait in my car when I told her it was for a COVID test. The tech who did the nose swab was very professional and did a good job on the phone as well. The physician who saw me was amazing. So nice, super smart, great personality, funny and made me feel at ease. Gave me some great advice as well

Just got back from my testing and the two assistance that took our COVID test were excellent but the two women in the front desk had a attitude once I told them I didn’t have insurance and I felt discriminated and looked down on because I than called my father and found out I have tricare prime and once I told that to the lady she was real snobby. But excellent from the make and female that gave us the test!

First time at this facility - went in for COVID test. The experience was like no other medical facility. The staff were amazing - knowledgeable, super professional, very focused on patient care, the provider’s bedside manner was an A++. Super facility - clean, fresh, very comfortable. The medical team offered sound options for moving forward without pressure - this place thinks in broader terms than some other medical centers. I was their first Covid positive patient of the day and I left feeling confident I had all the information and options to move through my COVID journey. I would highly recommend ImmediateCare Arizona to anyone in need of medical support.

We had telehealth appointments that directed us to a location for COVID testing. The phone number provided by the coordinator was incorrect (it was a national number) but a rep gave us the location number. After we received the triage call in the parking lot, we waited approximately 90 minutes before we were tested. Ideally, we would have preferred an appointment time for testing or at least an estimate for wait time in advance.

I live across town, but ended up at Immediate Care after a long search for a rapid covid test. I am SO grateful that Trevor, and the rest of the staff at Immediate Care, were the people to help treat me. I was extremely sick when I arrived, and had results from my rapid test almost immediately. I was offered treatment and left feeling set up for success. Later that evening, I was having difficulty breathing and called Immediate Care for guidance. Trevor offered several options to help, and even stayed open so that my husband could pick up the medicine I needed. I really believe that without Immediate Care, I would have ended up in the hospital due to breathing complications. I highly recommend Immediate Care after this amazing experience! Worth the drive across town without a doubt!

This will be my new spot to come to for any ailments. I drive all the way from Benson so that says alot cause this location and staff are worth the trip. Only "complaint" I have would be to offer rapid Covid testing for people like myself who are in management (or are just employed) but can't afford to miss any days "waiting for results" especially when they're probably gonna come back negative 🤞lol.

I had an overall great experience. The 1 complaint I have is the answering service. It is not right that you have to sit on the phone for 18-25 minutes to make an appt only to be hung up on. Secondly, I took a Covid Test. I received a message 3 days later and was told to call a specific # which I did and again had to wait on the phone listening to a recording. I finally hung up and drove 35 minutes to the office I had the test at. I should have been given a direct # to the office at the time I checked out from the appt.This is poor customer/patient service. Thank you for your time and hopefully you can implement the suggestion offered. Also my husband drove to the office to get the appt for me since I couldn't do it by phone and did not have access to a computer.

My experience has been excellent staff. Very well organized and knowledgeable of their jobs. I would like to comment that I requested rapid COVID test & it seems the location I visit does not know. Not sure why? Otherwise I have had to visit Nextcare 3 times since Thanksgiving. I am very impressed with their attention and care. Thank you!!

Awesome medical team, showed up early for my appointment and they still pulled me right back which was a nice surprise. The nicest and prettiest medical office I've been in, odd to say but true. Dr Trevor is the best! I went in for a simple covid test but Dr Trevor saw that I felt like crap and made time to treat my symptoms within his ability. I was also able to get meds to take home instead of waiting at a pharmacy which I really was thankful for. Definitely recommend and will use them again!

Given some circumstances, I found myself in need of Covid testing, and NextCare Urgent worked out well for me. All the staff that I worked with, from the person on the phone taking my info to the actual nurse practitioner were patient, calming and ready to answer my questions. I really needed that. I was a little nervous going in, so I appreciated anything and everything that was done to give me some level of comfort given my circumstances. Thank you.

I had Covid last month and thought I was over it I’m not sure if I’m having residual effects or if it’s coming back or if I have a cold but they said to just keep on treating it with vitamin C and zinc did not receive a Covid test because it might come up negative if it’s too soon is what the doctor said

- Verified patient on 12/15

My experience was great in regards to my Covid testing. The problem was with the website that was provided to receive my results. I was told that I "should" receive a call 24 to 72 hours after testing if I was positive. I was also told that I could access the website to confirm my test results. I can only assume that I have a cold as I did not receive a call and I cannot access the website.

Best urgent care in town! Friendly and caring staff. Not much wait time and the doctors take time to discuss the problem. Quick lab work. Only place I've found where I can be sure to get a rapid covid test and not wait days first to get an appointment and then have to argue with the practitioner that I need a rapid test and not the 3-5 day wait-for-results test. Great to be able to get meds there rather than have to go to a pharmacy and spend hours waiting while standing next to coughing people. Immediate Care is superior in every way.

I needed to get a COVID test & Nextcare was the only same day appointment. I’d been sick for 3 days & was getting anxious to get tested. They took me right in, took my vitals, did the test & I saw a provider. Everyone was professional, the office was clean, and I had great relief that the test was done. Provider was efficient & pleasant. There was no cost! Yes, I would recommend this clinic.

Our experience was excellent! We were received promptly and our vitals were taken within five minutes and the nurse practitioner came in within 10-15 minutes. The only complaint if that is that we expected to get rapid Covid tests but instead we got the normal PCR test.The whole reason for the appointment was to get the rapid test.

I usually go here and have excellent service from my provider. I felt that I was brushed off and all my concerns were not addressed and all of my symptoms were passed off as covid . I wasn't impressed and was left just scared . It's sad when you can't even go to a doctor and automatically if your sick it's covid. Little to say I'll wait for my covid test before I subject myself to a hospital full of covid people . A chest x-ray might have been a good idea if you thought the pain in my back was related to covid! This is a one time experience for me . Usually a very positive experience .

I’m very thankful for this facility that are doing the covid testing, I had been trying for 2 days to get tested at Walgreens & cvs & didn’t get no were, the waiting time was a lot longer from what I was told, but at the end it was worth the wait, and I want to thank the Dr & all of the staff members for putting their files in danger just to help all the citizens out here, thank you all, for your hard work & effort. ❤️❤️❤️

Tucson COVID Testing & Rapid Testing

Types of COVID Tests

There are two types of coronavirus tests (COVID-19 tests) available, those that can test for a current infection (viral test) and those that can test for a past infection (antibody test).

Viral COVID testing can be done in a few different ways, the most common being nose swabs, but saliva tests are becoming more popular. Some tests are processed out on-site and can provide results in as little as 30 minutes. These are called rapid COVID tests. The majority of tests, on the other hand, are collected at the clinic on-site and then submitted to off-site labs for processing. Results can take up to 2-3 days to arrive. 

Antibody testing looks for a past infection and may not reveal if you have an active COVID-19 infection because antibodies can take up to three weeks to form in your body. The presence of COVID antibodies may help to prevent you from becoming infected with the same virus again; but, because the clinical understanding of COVID-19 is still developing, it's unclear how long that protection will continue.

Who should get tested for current infection

The CDC currently defines four instances where COVID testing is recommended:

  1. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 including fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
  2. If you have been in close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19. Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. If you have been vaccinated, or tested positive in the past 3 months and not experiencing symptoms, you do not need to be tested.
  3. If you are unvaccinated and participated in high-risk activities where distancing is not an option. This could include travel, large social or mass gatherings, crowded indoor settings, etc.
  4. If you have been referred to get a COVID test by your healthcare provider or local health department. 

How is testing done for COVID-19?

Most COVID tests are collected by a nasal swab. A member of the medical team puts a swab inside your nose for a few seconds on each side to collect the sample. After that, the samples are packaged according to CDC guidelines and tested on-site or transported to a facility for testing. The lab will test samples for the presence of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes COVID infection and either your care provider or the lab will notify you with the results as soon as they are available.

PCR vs Antigen Testing

Viral COVID tests are available as molecular and antigen tests. The molecular test, also known as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, usually delivers results within a few days since most of these tests are sent to offsite labs for analysis. The average turnaround time for PCR test results is 48 hours, but in some instances may be significantly longer due to backlogs related to insufficient lab volume and capacity. Antigen tests are also known as rapid tests and have an average turnaround time of between 15 to 30 minutes.

Both PCR and rapid COVID tests can be used to test people exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, those who were close contacts to COVID-19, and those without COVID-19 symptoms who live or work in a high-risk setting (such as a nursing facility); or those individuals who are identified as part of outbreak detection and response. The rapid COVID test is also recommended for the screening of residents or healthcare workers at skilled nursing facilities along with a PCR confirmation, and for repeat screening for the early detection and prevention of outbreaks in congregate settings (such as schools, workplaces, and prisons).

COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. To reduce the risk of facing extra costs related to COVID testing, ask your primary care doctor to recommend a free COVID test site, and confirm there are no charges or fees for the test that are not covered by your insurance plan. Additionally, avoid getting a COVID test at a hospital or free-standing emergency room, as these facilities may charge fees for COVID testing and related services.
