I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

South Bay Urgent Care - 1628 Palm Ave, San Diego
I have had many accidents in my life. Been to the ER more than a dozen times for a variety of mishaps, mistakes, and missteps that required medical care and stitches. Never have I experienced the care and kindness I have ever received from any medical care facility as I did by going to South Bay Urgent Care. I hate going to hospitals and try to avoid going at all cost. Unfortunately I sliced one of my fingers half way through and needed stitches. I feel fortunate and lucky enough to have had Isaac Ortega-Endahl, PA-C sew my finger back together. The man has amazing skill sets and should be a surgeon. Thank you Dr. Issac. I truly appreciate your kindness. I didn't realize that I got there close to their closing time and feel grateful to your entire staff that took care of me that night. Kindness is a rare thing in the world today. I'm so thankful that it exists in your staff at South Bay Urgent Care. Truly amazing people.

Covid test protocol of staying in car for testing runs smoothly. Staff is nice. Phone connection/signal for virtual appt is not good, but serves the purpose

- Verified patient on 1/13

I found getting the test was the easy part. I first drove to the office in Carmel Valley thinking I could walk in & get tested. Then I saw the sign on the to not even come if you were wanting a test and to the posted phone number. I called multiple times and it continually went to voice mail so I peeked in the window and saw a woman at the desk who was not answering the phone. I knocked on the window & held up my phone indicating that I needed to get through. Then I called again and she picked up. I set up an appointment for the next morning but was not told that it was an appointment for a video consult so I was ready to head out the next morning but then saw there were forms to be completed. I did the best I could but found the website a bit difficult to navigate. Did the video consult which was great, quick & to the point & all was good after that. I would like to add that aside the first I went to the office and it kept going to voicemail it never happened again.

This is my first time coming here for a drive up Covid test for myself and my daughter. The process was quick and painless! I would recommend this caregiver to anyone who needs a Covid test!

- Verified patient on 10/11

Such a wonderful experience. Quick, easy and efficient. The staff was so pleasant and we got my son in and out and tested safely.

- Verified patient on 5/2

I had no appointment. Just walked in. I was seen within 10 minutes and testing started. Vitals, PA meeting and examination to discuss problem. More testing on site including X-rays and EKG. Follow up discussion of testing results with PA. Diagnosis and path forward. Very efficient.

- Verified patient on 10/27

I came in for a Covid test. The test was quick and it was curbside! The provider was friendly and proficient! The entire process took about 15 minutes from checkin to when I was driving away.

- Verified patient on 1/2

This is the 4th time I have used MDToday- twice for urgent care appointments and twice for Covid tests. Staff were always very professional and knowledgeable. Today’s appointment with Michelle was thorough, caring and professional. Jonathan, who administered the test curbside, was also very professional and gave me clear directions and had a positive attitude. I’ll continue to use this office for care in the future.

- Verified patient on 2/16

Michelle (Physician Assnt.) and the male nurse who administered a COVID-19 test to my teen daughter were extremely professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The entire process was fast, easy and convenient, stream-lined and very well organized - no long waiting lines, etc. (Consisted of completing a short online questionnaire, followed by a brief tele-health video visit with the P.A. or M.D., and then pulling up the the curbside of the clinic to receive the nasal swab test.). Highly recommend this clinic.

- Verified patient on 2/19

Quick and easy COVID testing. We had to get my 3 year old daughter tested in order to attend an event and Kristen was really good with her and explained what she was going to do so it wasn’t scary.

- Verified patient on 11/14

In order to travel to Canada, I needed to get a (molecular) Covid test. It's a bit tricky because you need to get a negative test result within 72 hours of departure, but you also need the results quickly so that you can log into Canada's system. I searched several test providers but most didn't have availability this past Saturday afternoon. I was able to make an appointment at MD Today Urgent Care for 6:00 PM and it could not have gone smoother or any easier. I appreciated being called prior to the appointment time to clarify which test was most appropriate. They let you self-swab which is always more comfortable. Within 20 minutes of being tested, I was called again with the result - followed by an email. I strongly recommend MD Today Urgent Care. They are located a bit East of I-5 and North of Hwy 56 - just North of San Diego.

- Verified patient on 11/8

Dr Alex was very calming, knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns on the video chat. The person who gave me the covid swab was in the parking lot within a minute, and very helpful and friendly. I'm sorry I forgot his name. I was a little nervous. Front desk phone help was awesome as well. She was on top of every question and explained the video chat process really well. And very friendly. Sorry I forget her name too. Thanks to all. You guys made it easy. Great team!! My name was misspelled on the test. You had one "S" when it should have been two. He said he would correct it. Thank you again!

You are the ONLY travel clearance clinic we would ever use! The NP and the nurse administering the Covid test were the BEST. Both were very pleasant and immediately decreased our anxiety level. Excellent customer service!

My experience with the provider during the telehealth visit was excellent. He listened to my concerns and had great bedside manner. The actual staff at AFC who I interacted with to get my covid test were rude and very short with me. Their communication was not clear and I ended up waiting longer than it should have taken.

- Verified patient on 2/2

It was a very easy process! Super convenient & user friendly. I tried to get tested at several pharmacies & was discouraged but this was great!

- Verified patient on 10/6

I was there for Covid testing other than for quality of the video the doctor called me immediately and we had no trouble proceeding with the reason for the visit

- Verified patient on 1/5

Easy process to schedule a same day tele-med appointment and Covid rapid test. Very streamlined and safe for Covid cases with separate waiting area. Was seen right away at my appointment time, test was quick and easy, results 20 minutes later. Very good experience.

- Verified patient on 3/15

Trying to get a COVID test. Unfortunately after my appointment they couldn’t get me I. Until the next day for the test. I will go somewhere else for the test

- Verified patient on 1/11

After booking the wrong kind of appointment for a Covid test I had to reschedule for 4 days from now. They told me they would put me on a cancellation list, we all know what that means…not much. Wrong. I received a call back within 30 minutes that they had a cancellation. The staff is on it and all about helping the patients. Thank you so much MD Urgent Care!!!

Got in for a Covid test right away since I had been exposed. Had a visit from a PA who was great and the tech who did the test was extremely efficient and explained everything she was doing. 2 thumbs up!

San Diego 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.

Lab Tests FAQs

  • Where should I get a lab test in San Diego?

    Doctors commonly order lab tests and can refer you to one or more reputable lab test centers in your area. Lab tests can be performed in San Diego urgent care centers, hospitals, 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.

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

    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.
