I am a long-time patron of PM pediatrics and have never experienced four hour wait times before. The staff attempted to keep folks at bay, but it was clear that the number of folks being tested for Covid was interfering with actual sick patients like my daughter. I will wait to return when your org has a better handle on managing testing and actual patients.

We love every part of PM Pediatrics. Love the Doctors, quick access to X-rays and of course the interaction with the kids. PM pediatrics offers world class care without the wait or hassle of an emergency room. Kids are the priority. My only complaint is the check in. Computer systems will create multiple profiles for your kids. Very frustrating when billing gets crossed, children get confused and you have start fresh each visit.

Latest COVID Testing updates

May 10, 2022

COVID Testing FAQs

  • 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 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 New York?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near New York 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 New York?

    Rapid testing—both PCR (molecular) and antigen tests—is offered through many New York-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 New York?

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in New York 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?

    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?

    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)

Quick, but would like a more formal document about my Covid test that says I'm negative rather than just a text saying so.

- Verified patient on 12/11

Last time I waited 3 hours for covid test and 2 of those hours was outside in the cold. I was thrilled to be able to walk in and wait about 1/2 hour which I didn’t mind since I was sitting and waiting indoors.

- Verified patient on 2/4

The staff were all so kind and professional. The office is immaculate and the cost of the Rapid Covid testing was very reasonable. Results were sent to me via a text within 15 minutes. They made a somewhat stressful situation extremely easy...

- Verified patient on 12/16

The person in charge of the covid testing process charged me 100 usd dollars in cash because i was not a New York resident. He did not gave me any receipt for the money and im startin to think that he kept the money for himself. The worst part is that i didnt receive the results on next day because the person who took my data spelled my email and name wrong and i almost loose my flight due to the situation.

- Verified patient on 9/1

The reason for our visit to get a covid test for my daughter. We had an advance appointment, but the wait time was still over an hour. The check in process was confusing, you have to wait outside until you are called into the building. I would have been ok with waiting outside, however the staff asked us to wait in the small vestibule between the front door and outside door. I was uncomfortable since 4 people were in this space with no social distancing markers. I could not see our actual place in line through the application (I would like to have monitored my spot this way & stayed outside or been permitted to proceed to the waiting room which was very clean and spacious), when I asked why the staff said we were about to be called (we still waited for a lengthy time after that). The actual test was fast, the exam room clean, & nice bedside manner. I would return but insist on waiting outside.

- Verified patient on 1/11

I should have done this for all my covid tests. So much better than Urgen Care

For covid testing, so quick if you make an appointment online. The process is really efficient, the staff and doctors are extremely friendly, and the office is super clean. Highly recommend!

This care facility is a little gem. I made my appointment, checked in online and showed up at my scheduled time and there was virtually no wait. Admittedly, reception was a little dry, but I tossed it up to the strain of our current time. They all must be terribly exhausted. I remained cheerful and eventually they warmed up. The person who brought me back to the private room was also a bit cold, but again, was sure it was more about fatigue and their grueling response to COVID. The nurse practitioner however, was wonderful, made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions, took the necessary COVID tests and offered to call me with the results so I wouldn't have to wait. I really appreciated that. She called fifteen minutes later and I was done. I will definitely be back as I prefer to schedule an appointment and not walk in and wait when I can't get to my primary care physician. Under normal circumstances, I would give them a four as the environment wasn't warm and welcoming however, I give them a five because despite the horrors of COVID and the risk they take everyday for many thankless guests, the fact that they can crack a smile at all is truly remarkable. I am grateful for the service they provided me and grateful for what they are doing for the world. Thank you ProHealth and best wishes to you all. You are absolute heroes.

Took a long time to register me, bat Caroline and Tru came to the rescue. I needed a Covid test urgently and they came through with flying colors.

The staff came out frequently to apprise us of how much longer to wait before coming into the facility to be seen. Once in, John, who did the COVID test on my son was both professional and reassuring and did a smooth job. Our doctor was friendly and thorough and reminded my son that although his age group mostly didn’t get as sick with COVID, he should be attentive to do what he can to lessen the spread. The result came back quickly and we were on our way. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier and made a visit that my son anticipated with trepidation, quite pleasant.

From beginning to end, our visit was seamless. We came in for rapid Covid testing and everyone was professional, friendly, and helpful. Thank you again!!!!

My appointment was for Covid testing. Great experience. Front desk was very efficient and the Dr. Hamarsha was excellent, very caring and approachable.

- Verified patient on 2/3

Everyone with whom I dealt was lovely, in particular, Dr. Shahd Hamarsha. She spent a considerable amount of time explaining the differences between the rapid Covid test and the one I had today. She has such a delightful manner, which is evident even while wearing a mask!

Went for a rapid Covid test (for a foreign trip). Check-in, exam and COVID test all very easy. And the doctor was particularly good, in terms of quick but thorough. She was very explicit, which I loved

New York 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.
