Latest Lab Tests Updates

Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)
May 31, 2022
COVID-19 hospitalizations are up 20 percent nationwide over the last 14 days, with 45 states and Washington, D.C., reporting an increase. Nationwide, COVID-19 cases increased 14 percent over the past 14 days, according to HHS data collected by The New York Times.

Lab Tests FAQs

  • Where should I get a lab test in Ellington?

    Doctors commonly order lab tests and can refer you to one or more reputable lab test centers in your area. Tests can be performed in Ellington hospitals, urgent care centers, and walk-in clinics that specialize in lab testing. Your healthcare practitioner can supply you with a list of lab test providers, or you can use Solv to see what's available in your area.

  • How much do lab tests cost?

    The cost of a lab test is determined by several factors, including the type of test, your location, whether you have insurance, and the fees charged by the lab test provider. Many health insurance providers will cover the cost of lab testing in part or in full. Those who do not have insurance, on the other hand, will almost certainly face higher costs. Contact lab test providers directly to confirm the cost of your lab test based on your health insurance benefits.

  • Does insurance cover lab testing?

    Many health insurance plans will cover lab tests that your doctor determines are medically necessary for your illness. The easiest way to find out if your health plan covers lab testing is to contact your insurance carrier directly or ask the lab test provider to check your insurance benefits and verify price.Many health insurance plans will cover lab tests that your doctor determines are medically necessary for your illness. The easiest way to find out if your health plan covers lab testing is to contact your insurance carrier directly or ask the lab test provider to check your insurance benefits and verify price.

  • How long does it take to get lab test results in Ellington?

    Lab test results may be available in minutes, hours, days, or weeks, depending on the type of test performed, lab staff productivity, and your doctor's availability. Some lab test providers let you see your results as soon as they're available online, while others need you to wait for your doctor's answer. Your doctor or the lab provider can give you a more accurate estimate of when your lab test results will arrive.

  • What is a routine lab test?

    A basic lab test may evaluate your red and white blood cell counts to discover if you have anemia, a blood infection, or blood cancer. It may also test fat levels in your blood to determine your risk of heart disease and examine the health of your organs, such as your heart, kidneys, and liver. Your healthcare provider will be able to explain what a typical lab test entails.

  • What STDs can be detected by a blood test?

    A blood test can identify STDs such as syphilis, HIV, hepatitis C, and herpes. Your doctor may order that blood be collected and submitted to a lab, or that you undergo STD testing at a lab test provider. STD test results might arrive in minutes, days, or weeks, depending on the lab test company you work with.

  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a lab test?

    Before performing specific tests, some lab test providers require a doctor's referral, while others do not. The benefit of seeing a doctor before getting a lab test is that you can assess whether or not you need one based on your symptoms and a physical examination. A doctor can also help you decide which tests are necessary.

  • How can I book a lab test on Solv?

    On our home page, please specify the type of lab service you desire, as well as your location and state. Solv will give you with a list of lab test providers in your area, as well as their contact information, so you can make an appointment right immediately.

  • How long does getting a lab test take?

    The majority of lab tests are completed in a matter of minutes, but certain providers may have extensive wait times that require you to spend up to an hour in the lab. To limit the amount of time you spend waiting for your lab test, schedule an appointment with Solv ahead of time.

  • Should I try at-home lab testing?

    Privacy, convenience, and accuracy are all advantages of at-home lab testing. Some at-home lab testing services, however, may not be covered by your health insurance plan. Some healthcare practitioners may seek additional lab tests to corroborate their diagnosis of specific health concerns. Consult your doctor to see if at-home lab testing is appropriate for you, given your unique health situation.Privacy, convenience, and accuracy are all advantages of at-home lab testing.

Covid test was quick and easy. The wait time was next to nothing and was In and out in 5 minutes with very polite staff.

- Verified patient on 4/5

All went well, however the individual administering the test was very short, and seemed to be somewhat annoyed. I was trying to ask her a question, she didn’t seem to be interested rather wanted to get done with me and onto the next person. Which is fine, but as someone who is being tested for the first tome, first time being exposed I am very nervous and unclear on quarantine do’s & dont’s. My husband on the other hand had a completely different experience which was very good!!

- Verified patient on 1/6

Had a Covid Rapid Test as I’d just returned from air travel to/from SC via Baltimore. No symptoms, just wanted reassurance I was negative for Covid. Booked online and was In and out in 20 minutes.

- Verified patient on 10/23

I went here for a covid test. They had it set up great. You text them when you get there. Then you drive around to a tent when it is your time. They ask you some questions and do they test. They give you a card to look up your results in a few days. So I never went inside the building.

- Verified patient on 1/26

Wow! I had written you off after a really bad experience but today u won me back! Covid rapid test a breeze- super friendly and efficient provider- thank you!!

- Verified patient on 2/15

All staff was so kind and my covid test results came back very quickly. Short wait time and doctor came in right way. Would recommend this place to everyone

- Verified patient on 8/28

Went there for a PCR test. The nurse came right out and the swab took about five seconds, and I was out of there. Great experience.

- Verified patient on 2/26

I needed a COVID test due to exposure and Priority had a number of appointments available that same afternoon. I completed my paperwork online and upon check in was quickly taken in for my test. Staff was very cordial and expedient

- Verified patient on 8/4

I took my daughter in for Covid test. Check in was fast, easy, friendly. Staff/PA were knowledgeable, concise, explained everything. Always a great experience here.

- Verified patient on 4/2

Went for a Covid test, was asked a few simple questions, checked my breathing and then offered both tests. I was rather impressed by that and accepted both tests. After a few swabs from both nostrils, I was on my way out. Very efficient!!

- Verified patient on 9/18

I just had a covid test so I didn't see the facility, but the whole process of getting an appointment and getting the test done was incredibly easy.

- Verified patient on 2/27

I came in about 45 minutes before closing for a Covid test and had never been there before and everyone was very pleasant, not put out that I was coming at the end of what I am sure was a busy day. The wait time was minimal even though I didn’t have an appointment and they took the time to explain my test options.

- Verified patient on 11/13

Went for Covid testing, directions said wait by back door, not clearly marked. Texted by staff in capital letters to come in front door. I had no idea.... never been before. Heard from a friend it was positive. Once inside, very efficient staff.

- Verified patient on 3/13

I had a COVID test done in the back of the building, it was quick and very professional. The nurse was friendly and compassionate, it was a pleasant visit. (Considering the circumstances).

- Verified patient on 1/6

Excellent experience for COVID testing. Made the appointment online. Provider called me prior to my appointment so I was able to pull up, get tested, and drive out in a matter of minutes.

- Verified patient on 1/27

Super fast in and out, and results come very quickly for COVID-19 PCR tests. All paperwork and booking is done online which is super convenient. I got a test at the airport and they were less organized, a lot busier, and took much longer to get results back. Thank you Ellington urgent care for being amazing!!!

- Verified patient on 2/16

I only came for a rapid Covid Test. You have a great setup there for testing! I was in and out in no time. Technician was very pleasant and I had my results very quickly. I really appreciated how efficient and easy your process was! Thank you!

- Verified patient on 1/9

I had a Covid test done. The staff was very friendly and efficient administering the test. I would definitely go back if I needed medical treatment.

- Verified patient on 1/10

The wait time to be seen for Covid testing should be better explained to just drive up at your appt time. The waiting time site they send you to is very misleading.

- Verified patient on 1/8

The only downside was that I made an appointment here, out of my way, specifically for a fast COVID PCR test. I made an appointment 4 days ahead of time but when we arrived the supplies weren't available. If I had known I could have made another appointment.

Ellington Lab Tests

Lab tests take samples of your blood, urine, saliva, and other bodily secretions, which are then analyzed in a lab to help doctors diagnose and treat certain illnesses. Lab tests can be used to diagnose an illness, detect changes in an existing condition, and monitor how your body responds to a therapy, among other things. They can also be used to monitor the progression of a disease or a set of diseases.

If your doctor is unable to make a definitive diagnosis of your disease, or if you are having a variety of symptoms that could indicate a variety of disorders, he or she may request a lab test. To see how you're responding to a drug or to check if you're at risk for certain diseases, lab tests may be performed.If your doctor is unable to make a definitive diagnosis of your disease, or if you are having a variety of symptoms that could indicate a variety of disorders, he or she may request a lab test. To see how you're responding to a drug or to check if you're at risk for certain diseases, lab tests may be performed.

Some lab tests require no preparation at all, while others may require you to fast for eight to twelve hours before the test in order to avoid erroneous results from certain meals and beverages. Your healthcare provider may advise you to cease smoking, exercising, and taking certain medications and nutritional supplements for many hours or days before your blood test.

Before your lab test, ask your doctor for precise instructions to follow to minimize erroneous results and multiple trips to the lab for additional testing.

A lab worker may use a needle to draw blood from your arm or prick your finger to collect a small sample of blood during a blood test. During a urine test, your physician will ask you to go to the restroom and urinate in a sterile cup, then set your sample on a shelf where a lab technician can pick it up and process it. The personnel at the lab testing facility will demonstrate how to do each type of test.
