The staff was great, but the receptionist could be a little more friendly. She didn't greet me, and when I told her my daughter needed to be seen she pointed to a sign behind me (not visible when you're facing the desk) and told me to scan the qr code and check in there.

Unfortunately that even with a scheduled appointment I still had to wait over 2 hours to get called back and then another hour until I finally saw the doctor for a few minutes and left. I was warned they were slammed busy that day but was still surprised by the wait. Almost makes it useless to schedule an appointment. Other than that, the staff was awesome. From when I checked in until the doctor said I could leave. They were great!!!

Latest COVID Testing updates

May 10, 2022
The nation's flu positivity test rate reached nearly 10 percent in mid-April, making it the first time such an increase has occurred so late in the flu season since 1982 (NBC News)
May 6, 2022
The Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV2 virus is intrinsically as severe as previous variants, according to a preprint version of a large U.S. study that counters assumptions in other studies that it was more transmissible but less severe. (Reuters)

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 Philadelphia?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia?

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

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

It was not that bad the Covid test is easy it is also free no matter what insurance you have and make sure you bring your id

- Verified patient on 1/3

The receptionist must have been having a bad day. Very unhelpful in setting me an appointment over the phone when I was having issues with my data when trying to book online.Covid tests should be falling from the skies and this bullshit having an appointment and insurance for the more reliable PCR test is late stage capitalism at it's best. And like everyone else collecting pandemic paychecks, there is nothing you can do. Well call your congressperson otherwise, like her, there's nothing you can do. But at least everyone got their cut.

- Verified patient on 8/27

We had a twenty minute wait but everyone was professional and friendly. There was some communication about it what type of COVID test was given. Antigen Test results came quickly.

- Verified patient on 12/11

I was instructed online to drive up at 3:40 for a 3:55 appointment. When I arrived I was directed by a uniformed and masked SPD officer to a lane where there were 3 vehicles waiting in line ahead of me. Affixed to the post of the covered open air testing area was a large sign advising the Covid test station was being run by the SFD and UW. The process ahead of me moved forward in a timely manner. When I was first in line I was greated by a person fully suited, masked, and gloved. She verified my name and date of birth verbally, put a tag on my windshield, and moments later I moved forward to the first station, where a cheerful person, again fully gowned, masked and gloved, verified verbally again my name and date of birth, gave me a consent and information form, and an empty vial with my contact information and date on it, and directed me to drive forward. At the test station the SFD EMT, again fully masked, gowned, and gloved, with the addition of a clear face shield, asked if my vehicle were in park with engine off. I confirmed. She asked to see the vial label and that I hold it during the test. She asked what my symptoms were and if I had been tested before. Upon my negative response she explained the procedure in detail. She verbally instructed me to position my head comfortably, pull my mask down off my nose and leave it over my mouth. She then instructed me to breathe normally as she inserted the test swab in my right nostril. Her manner was calm and reassuring. The insertion was uncomfortable, but not intolerable. My eyes began watering. Upon completion of the right nostril insertion, she allowed me a moment, instructed me to reposition my head slightly, and advised that the sensation I would feel in my left nostril may be stronger than the right. She again requested that I breathe normally during the insertion. The left nostril insertion was more uncomfortable but not intolerable. She thanked me for my patience and advised thst the test results would be available in 24 to 72 hours and wished me a good day. I exited the facility under the direction of a uniformed and masked SPD officer at 3:53pm.

As a person who is highly anxious of being poked and prodded by a doctor or dentist, I believe that I couldn’t have had a better experience than the one I had when I went in for a nasal swab at 1:40pm on Tuesday, February 16th at the Aurora Avenue test site. The greeter/intake gal, Tyler, was very friendly and kind and addressed my anxiety when I told her it was my first Covid test and that I was really scared. She assured me that it was quick and not any more uncomfortable that when you mix your wasabi/soy a little too strong at the sushi restaurant. Then, thanks be to God, the administrator of the test, Matt, was extremely patient with me (I am grateful that I thought to go at a not busy time so that I didn’t feel extra anxiety thinking I was holding up the queue). He described what would happen, how long it would take, and told me it would be okay. This helped me stop being jittery and relax enough to give it a try. I got really scared with the first attempt and how it felt, and Matt immediately yet gently removed the swab so that I could take a break. I asked him if it was going to go in further than that and he said “Oh yes” and I immediately started crying, hard. (This would be my only request of him the next time I perhaps have to see him: to intonate causally the ‘yes’ in order to help to minimize anxious patients’ fears going into a second attempt. Other than that little Matt let me take the time I needed (45+ seconds I’d imagine) to collect myself to try again, and suggested I step back to lean on the wall to support myself and be able to relax more. That helped enough to perform the swabs (1 in each nostril), along with his verbal comforting while doing the swab, and it helped me A LOT (I emphasize this) that he counted down the last 4 seconds. I cried again afterwards out of shame for falling apart (I am nearly 40 years old), and Matt told me I did a great job and allowed an elbow bump, though I wish I could’ve given him a hug. Thank you Matt. And Tyler! Heather the midday, middle-aged five year old.

I had a rapid Covid test on 8/19/21, my birthday, at the site behind Ace hardware Kihei. I got a call back about 3 hours later from a young lady, believe her name was Kate. She informed that I tested positive and to quarantine myself for the next 10 days and if my symptoms got worse to call for further medical help. 10 minutes later she called back and apologized saying after reviewing my file further she saw that I might be eligible for a Special treatment for over 65ers and if i was interested she would set me up with a video appointment with a doctor to discuss further. I told her I would think about it. 20 minutes later I called her # back and of course it went to a message for MMUC and gave me a # to call to get help. I called the number and after getting to the third prompt I got a call from the original number and it was Kate(?) asking if I tried to call back to which said yes that I wanted to to talk to a doctor. While on the phone with her she set me up with video appointment 1 1/2 hrs later. My appointment was at 4:20 with Dr. Michael Jackowitz. He asked some questions, did some calculations, filled out a form and said he would send it over to the hospital put that I probably wouldn't hear back till sometime Friday after he talked to his contact at the hospital to which I thanked him. 2 hrs later Maui Memorial hospital called me back with an appointment for the next day to receive the Monoclonal antibody treatment which I did receive Friday 8/20/21. Beginning this morning I have been pain free and fever free and my other symptoms are diminishing. Because the young lady that called me to give me my results and then call back not once but twice then Dr. Jackowitz took the time from his busy day to fill out a form and apparently push it through an overloaded system, I received my best birthday present ever, better health and Hope and for those I will be forever grateful to both of these special people. Thank you Minut Medical for hiring people who care. God Bless you all, David Flemming

Ease of getting an appointment for a covid test was fast. I just wish it was made clear that I would be paying for the test out of pocket and not being submitted to my insurance.

Everything was ok, except for the fact of my having a 9am confirmed appointment (for which I was asked to be there 10 minutes early - so at 8:50AM, which I was!). I didn't know whether to go in to the waiting room or actually wait in the car (though my text had said I should wait in the car, I didn't know if that meant until my appointment time of 9am or when I could actually be seen!). I went in to the waiting room about 7 minutes after 9AM to check & after speaking with the clerk, was told to wait in my car & that the wait time could be an hour PLUS to be seen (mainly due to other walk-ins that had been there when the doors opened at 8AM & didn't have appointments!). I had booked this 9am appointment to get a rapid Covid test (due to my grandchildren having contracted it while I was visiting them in another state the previous week). In most offices, if you have an appointment time scheduled, you are called or seen very close to that time. I wasn't seen for another 45 minutes after my appointment time!! When I was messaged to come into the waiting room, I was again asked to have a seat until my name was called. That happened about 5 minutes later, so I was thankful for that. As I had an important legal phone call that I was required to be at home by 10:30AM for this morning, I was now getting very stressed for getting the test done & leaving so I could get home for this required phone call. I understand the need for getting medical info from a patient and answered all of the med techs questions, but feel I could have answered all of them online (as I have for other doctors I must see also) and saved at least 10 minutes time. Maybe expanding the online information pages to collect history, medications, etc, would help expedite the process more! After the med tech finally got my Covid test done, she ushered me into yet another room (now 2 rooms that would have to be sanitized after I'd left them -IF they indeed are!?!) to sit and wait for my result. I was in that room about 2 minutes when yet another medical person (a man this time) came in to talk with me about the test & what the results could show. It was at this point I reminded him I had already been vaccinated & had no symptoms & asked if they could call me when they got my results as I HAD to get HOME for this phone call (which was to be a hour and 1/2 AFTER my appointment time was scheduled for a simple Covid test. I literally FLEW across town to get home so I could hit the bathroom before the phone began ringing, which it did as soon as I was back to my desk at home only a minute later! Unless I am there at the front door at 8am, I doubt I'll go back to this office again as time doesn't seem to be in my best interest there. Put more online for completing the patient's history prior to them showing up for their appointment (which...oh...may be up to an hour or more later than they've been requested to show for!). Sure would speed up the slow process I think~

I have been extremely sick for four days now and I have been here several times and I always had a great experience but this time they did not offer to take my temperature or check my oxygen all they did was take my blood pressure The doctor did listen to my breathing and then they give me a shot and the doctor told me he was going to give me some medicine they did not do an x-ray on my chest which is extremely congested and feels like I have a horse on top of me it was late when I got there and I understand they were tired and ready to go home but still yet when a sick person comes in you would think they would take care of them as they would if it was in the morning. I was very disappointed and I am still very sick and will probably end up having to go to the hospital maybe that’s where I should’ve went to begin with but I will not use Sevierville Hospital so I have to go to Knoxville and I have no energy and really don’t know that I want to make that drive by myself. I know you can call an ambulance but I don’t feel like this is an emergency but if my breathing does not get better maybe it will be. I just feel like they could have done more as far as check me out instead of just giving me a shot and a Z pack and prednisone and sent me home. I really just feel like they should’ve checked my oxygen they should’ve checked my temperature and they should’ve at least done a chest x-ray I was just very disappointed this time. I recommend them because it is always been a good place but I’m trying to just make it out as the fact that they close at eight and I got there at seven so they were ready to go home. I tested negative for Covid but not that I want that Q-tip shoved up in my nose but I really don’t think they are testing right because it just barely went up in my nose. I feel like they should do a different type of Covid test if they don’t know how to put the Q-tip in the nasal and actually get a good swab. Just makes me wonder do I have Covid and have I exposed others so I am being very safe at home and staying away from everyone because I am so sick I have no energy and I really can’t drive right now. And I don’t really have anyone to help me because everyone has a life and it’s kind of hard to ask them to stop what they’re doing to take me to the doctor that may take hours you never know. I just thought that urgent care was my best bet because it has always been in the past this time I really just feel like they were done with the day and wanted out of there. If I’m not better in a few days I’m going to have to go to the hospital and I don’t want to. Then I will be exposed to all those germs that has been brought in there. I have a very low immune system and catch everything and anything so I’m scared to go to the hospital but at the same time if I get worse or do not get better I’m going to have to when I really feel like the urgent care could’ve helped me better than they did.

I never went inside. ALL Covid testing and sign-up was done outside by instructions clearly stated on their front door and windows…. and I briefly waited comfortably in my car. Easy to navigate the website. Quick test and fast results! My only concern is in re: to the paper result copy you get. It looks almost “homemade” and is in funky print black-n-white. A colored document would “appear” so much more professional and legit. I just hope the “professional Concert event” that I’m attending this weekend will except it as real and legitimate, and won’t think that I made it up myself. It honestly looks like something I could have typed up at home by pulling some “standard form” off the Internet. I am one of those people that came here to get a test NOT because I was ill, but because I needed to show that I have had a TRUE negative result in the past 48-72hrs. as is REQUIRED by this facility, and which I DID!! I thought : “YES, I am UN-vaccinated (for my own personal reasons) but, I am WELL, and I can therefore attend a performance in a very nice and well established performance hall, likely even sitting shoulder to shoulder, because I Legitimately went out of my way to make this test happen.” However, this doc falls short of “appearing” top-notch professional, EVEN THOUGH everyone I came in contact with either by phone or in person at this facility was incredibly professional! An identification stamp, an attached colored brochure representing the clinic, or even a “live” signature (added just before handing it to me) would’ve been better than this. I am just hoping and praying that this works to admit me to this special event, which was always my intent for doing this in the 1st place. Maybe my comments here will help in some small way to improve the professionalism of the documentation that you receive after getting your test done. Everything else about this facility was extremely pleasant and swift. And the employees were terrific! Wait Time = wonderful. Check-in = swift. Booked thru my smart phone. My cost for this test is YTBD due to not knowing up front, because I never called my insurance provider 1st. But I wasn’t worried about that from the get-go. It’s a great place to SUPPORT!!

I cannot express how grateful I am to have this ProHealth facility nearby. Even in these crazy times, the facility was, as always, clean, dependable and filled w caring employees. I had called my primary for an appointment, thinking I had a severe sinus infection. Understandably, as some of my symptoms overlapped w COViD 19 symptoms (severe headache, dizziness, nausea), she asked me to go to a (different) urgent care instead. I knew better, and went to Pro-Health immediately. While I had the option to make an appointment online, they were running 3 days out, so I tried my luck, and walked in. I knew I could count on their safety protocols. I was the only person in the large waiting room. There was a receptionist on the phone when I arrived, it wasn’t 5 seconds later that a second appeared, took my info (I wanted a rapid COVID 19 test first, in case). He apologetically explained that he would call me on my cell when it was time to come in. I laughed: under the circumstances, I expected to wait upwards of 3 hours! They texted me a link, and I filled out paperwork in the car, then rec’d a link letting me watch my exact place in line, in real time. Clearly, they have some staff dealing w walk-ins, and others with those w appts. I was called in less than 50 mins later! This was my first COVID test, and we’ve all heard stories about that nasal/“brain” swab! This technician was thorough, but gentle. No sudden poke, but gentle twisting in both nostrils, sure to get at different parts of each nostril. I was asked to wait in the room for results, which came back (negative🤗) in less than a half hour. The Dr who came in to follow up about my sinus infection was professional and personable. As I’d had no fever, and was already taking Flonase, he started me on a 6 day course of steroids. 2 1/2 days in, and I already see an improvement!! I have used Pro-Health for years, whenever I was unable to see my primary. I have never once been disappointed. How they can handle the amount of people they are, while keeping patients apart, is nothing short of amazing!

Philadelphia 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.
