It took about 2 hours, but a patient who came after me needed to be bumped ahead of me, so it was understandable. They were very apologetic and I could tell they felt bad for making me wait so I didn’t mind.

Went twice for COVID tests. The staff was great - we had an appointment the first time and walked-in the second time. Both times were super quick and easy. Front desk person wasn't the friendliest but the others made up for it.

Provider was very thorough. She didnt miss anything and her understanding and memory was on point. Very respectful, professional, friendly, and caring. The wait time was average, longer than expected but decently quick. I would recommend this provider and clinic because they are on top of everything, didnt disregard anything that was said, very thorough, and they listened to me. The check in process could be better, and should be re-evaluated.

The front staff is very unprofessional, does not treat patients with respect. They are loud, obnoxious and only talk about their personal lives in front of patients. They were busy ordering lunch before helping with patients in front of patients. They were discussing personal lives and matter in an open space and had no reservations for anyone else’s. They were unhelpful. When you finish registering please go up to them and tell them you are DONE. They will not call your name. I cannot unrecommend this place enough. If you have urgent matters please defer to another urgent care or ED.

A non-negotiable, I called to book an appointment Wednesday and they told me $200 for a booked appointment and booked it for a week after. The second day I called and said want to cancel the appointment because I found somewhere else sooner than yours, than she said it is nonrefundable. At least the person should inform this is nonrefundable I shouldn't have booked the appointment because I was trying to do as fast as possible, .. Good lock to that $200.👎👎👎👎 Recommend to all, please do not deposit any money to them, once they take it, they will act like they have already told you.

The experience was excellent! The nurses and staff in general were very professional, knowledgeable and well organized considering this covid 19 pandemic. I called the urgent care to report my symptoms yesterday night, they took my information and told me that they were going to send me a tex message with my ticket number, appt time today, which they did. I was there at 9:30am and I was out in about 20 minutes. They did 3 tests: influenza, streptococcus in the throat and the covid 19. I will know the results for the first 2 tests tonight, but it will take a week for the covid. Before calling AFC, I tried other places, but they were busy, booked or never returned my calls. I am glad I called AFC and I highly recommend them.

Very rude and unprofessional. They treat people very poorly, especially immigrants, the unemployed, and poor people without insurance. With such amazing hospitals nearby, this place gets the bottom of the barrel when it comes to doctors and techs. The X-ray tech was incredibly rude and loud, kept talking over patients, and seems falsely self-entitled for no reason. No proper policies in place, so your treatment is subjective based on their discretion. Had to make several trips to finally never get the treatment I went in for! These people have forgotten that health care is for the people and not the other way around

COVID Testing and Rapid Testing FAQs

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How much does COVID testing cost?

    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 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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Where can I get free COVID testing in Medford?

    COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. Check with your Medford-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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Where can I get COVID testing in Medford?

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Medford 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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Where can I get a rapid COVID test in Medford?

    Rapid testing—both PCR (molecular) and antigen tests—is offered through many Medford-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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How to make an appointment for COVID testing in Medford?

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Medford 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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

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

    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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    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.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How long does it take to get COVID test results?

    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 tests are processed on-site and are able to deliver results in under an hour, sometimes in as little as 15 min.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Do COVID tests detect the Delta variant?

    Regular COVID tests are able to detect the Delta 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.

"I booked my appointment through the Solv app, which was super easy! Upon arrival, I called from my car to check in. Someone came right out moments later to escort my son and I to a room. We were seen by a nurse and a PA immediately for our COVID tests. They both had a terrific bedside manner and were very friendly. We received results the very next day. I would absolutely go there again!"

"I went in for a strep and COVID test and they were incredibly quick and kind. There was no wait when I used Solv to pre-book a time, and the test results were rapid. This is the first urgent care clinic that I’ve been to that has really listened to me. They prescribed antibiotics without doing a culture for strep (I have a history of negative rapid strep tests but positive cultures and it sucks having to be miserable to 2-5 more days to find out I do in fact have strep). Overall they really paid attention to me and my concerns. I didn’t even know this clinic existed but now that I do that’s where I’ll go for all of my urgent care needs!"

"It was my 1st getting the nose swab COVID test. Honestly the nurse gave examples of what to expect and they were right on point. Plus she was really gentle while the sample was being taken. It really wasn’t bad at all. Not sure why everyone gets all worked up it about the nose swab because that’s a much more accurate test if I’m gonna be tested. I recommend anyone interested in getting tested this facility is the place to go. The one in Edgewater, by Trader Joe’s. Just before you go down to the office, 1st download the Solv app to your phone. Once you go inside you put in your phone number into the iPad. Really easy and safe to check in. Then you fill out the rest of your information from the privacy of your car. Takes about 3-5 minutes. After that you see your place in line which is kinda cool. The office will text you once they have a room ready for you to come inside. Your test results will be emailed to you generally in about 1-2 days depending on how many people are being tested in that period of time. I recommend this place if your interested in being tested. Thumbs up."

"Went for a COVID test (walk in, no appointment) after experiencing symptoms. People at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Paperwork was filled out on my smartphone in my car (also signed on Solv APP) Easy enough. APP gave me a wait time and a list of people in front of me (initials only), which updated with a tap of the refresh button. Once inside I found everything to be clean and organized. Dr. and staff all did what they needed to do. I'm overall thrilled with how it went........ and I'm a guy that doesn't DO doctor visits."

"Long wait but that’s to be expected for a rapid COVID test right after New Years and Christmas. The live wait list feature in the Solv app is amazing I was able to see how many people were in front of me. I went home after seeing there were 68 people in front of me and drove back when I saw there were about 10 in front of me to wait. When they called me to come in I went right in got the test and the results on a printed sheet within 5 minutes. Literally just five minutes. So all in all it was a good experience and I’d recommend them."

"I was throughly impressed by how organized and friendly the staff was! It was my first time getting a COVID test so I was nervous, but I was greeted so kindly and was given a simple and clear explanation on the process. The staff was incredibly nice and I felt comfortable the entire time. The website used to make the appointment was very easy to use. One recommendation to the website would be to allow the user to mark multiple options under the "race" category :). Also, everytime you refresh the page, there would be different time slots available each time. I don't know if this was a glitch, or people just cancelling their appointments a lot though."

"My husband and I went to get our Rapid COVID TEST. Everything was quick went 10 minutes before our appointment called and the gentleman told us to pull curbside. He was very nice explained everything to us and we were done in less than 15 minutes!! Told us he would call us within 30 minutes. LOVED THE SERVICE!! Only thing I didn’t like was how long the virtual consultation took but once we met the physician she was very nice and was able to get my husband and I together. Very helpful!! Thank you!!😄"

"The person who administered my COVID test, Noel, was so kind and so gracious and so helpful. It really took the “sting” out of the experience. Such a gold-standard professional. Also, this testing site was set up in the parking lot of a school I believe, and it was a cold rainy morning. I felt very concerned about the health and safety of the people working there. Maybe more heaters for them? Snacks for them? A coffee machine for them? Just a thought"

"A longer Wait time is expected due to everyone wanting their COVID tests. However the line moves at a steady pace and it’s not too bad. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The place always looks clean. My husband and I have been here three times for our COVID tests. we feel safe and also trust them to have our tests back in time compared to a few other places we’ve been. Highly recommend."

"The wait time was terrible because it was New Year’s Day and very few clinics were open that day. But the staff was great! In fact I live in Folsom and I would travel to Slidell again because of the way me and my niece were treated. From the initial phone call to see if they had COVID test to us actually having the test done everything was perfect except the wait. It was a great experience!"

"I booked an appointment for a rapid results COVID test. I was attended to very quickly and received results in 20 minutes. My only issue was I couldn’t locate the self-pay cost anywhere and couldn’t find a phone number to have my question answered. Otherwise, all was great. Staff was efficient and friendly."
