Recent patient review

I felt so bad when I went to the clinic. I had an appointment so the wait was not very long. The staff could not have been nicer! They were so concerned about me and when they realized I had fever, they immediately gave me some Tylenol. They were very efficient and went above and beyond the care I have received over the past years with many physicians. They did not just breeze in and out with a quick prescription like so many doctors. I had a bad case of bronchitis and the doctor wanted to quickly get a handle on it because my lungs are not the best even on a good day!! I appreciate their kindness and compassion. That’s hard to find now a days in our hurry up, get them in and get them out care we’ve come to expect. I will definitely use them again!!

COVID Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost in Memphis?

    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 Memphis?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Memphis 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 Memphis?

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

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Memphis 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 Memphis?

    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 in Memphis?

    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)

This is the best urgent care in Memphis. Especially for covid testing. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. You go to the convenient covid parking spot and wait for them to come to your car and swab you. Amazing and organized method. Best place to go to!!! Highly recommend

- Verified patient on 12/28

I work in a job that exposes me to the public and when you start to feel sick or have a fever your mind goes straight to Covid. As far as Covid testing goes, they make it easy and quick. It’s as pleasant as a Covid test can be considering it’s a slightly uncomfortable test.

- Verified patient on 1/31

Scheduled an appointment for a Covid test. Paperwork was easy to fill out, wait time was quick, test results came back quickly. Overall, positive experience. I didnt go inside so I can't speak to the cleanliness of the office.

- Verified patient on 9/29

Had a rapid COVID test and it was the best experience I’ve had so far. Thank you for making it convenient and easy!

- Verified patient on 11/11

I had a rapid Covid test. They were prompt and very caring! I truly appreciate the staff and the care they showed me!

- Verified patient on 1/24

Getting a COVID test is so scary but everyone was really kind and accommodating. My only feedback is if they gave better directions for what to do once you arrive. The signs on the door were really conflicting, and that could have been avoided with the text message (drive around here, call, so something, etc.).

- Verified patient on 11/20

I got a rapid covid test & they were great!! The lady that took the swab was quick & as pain free as possible.

- Verified patient on 8/28

I was so scared to have the Covid test. Not that I thought I had the virus but from the horror stories I had heard of the test. From my driving up to leaving it took about 25 minutes and everyone was so nice and professional. I would use them again if I needed urgent care. My test was negative and I was happy!! The test was no big deal and only uncomfortable for a few seconds!!

- Verified patient on 8/27

I desperately wanted a Covid test because I am coughing a lot and have been extra tired. My doctor suggested I try Walgreens or Kroger, but neither was helpful so my husband was able to locate this space. I was very pleased and will recommend it to others.

- Verified patient on 12/8

I went online to book an appointment for covid test and thank goodness there was an opening on the same day. I arrived 30 minutes prior to appointment but it says online 15. A nurse came out and visited with the vehicle next to me 10 minutes after I got there because they were already there and then she came right over to ask me why am I here and do I have an appointment? I explained and told her yes. I gave her my info and was only there for 30 minutes. It was easy, fast, and Dr. Mahan was sooo kind and very informative of what I had mentioned to her. I would definitely recommend this place. By the way, this was the 2nd time that I came because the first visit in August was so efficient. Great people.

- Verified patient on 10/3

I went in to get a COVID test but received so much more. The check-in process was super quick and easy, making my time spent at AFC Urgent Care much shorter than it could have been. The staff was very friendly and willing to answer any questions I had. After receiving my negative test, they did some more examining to determine what was making me sick and wrote prescriptions to deal with the infection.

Great! The staff took me and my friends from dental school today and we didn’t have appointments. We needed covid tests to see patients that day and let our loved ones know if we were infected. We were so grateful for the team!

Very quick and efficient! Thank you for the billboard advertising your service. Our PCR test results didn't arrive in time for our travel so we were grateful we could get a Covid test so easily. Great job!

I got my Covid test quickly and results within 15 minutes. Very pleased and have already recommended this location to my coworkers needing negative test paperwork to overcome state quarantine requirements in the Northeast.

I actually did not go inside. I went for a Covid test and was attended to in the back parking lot. Which was fine. It was actually great. I never had to leave my car and received my results in less than 15 minutes.

I had to get a COVID test 72 hours before I flew into Dulles Airport in DC. It was very nice to be able to make an appointment for a rapid test . Also, very nice to have it done car side . Clear instructions - very prompt . The staff was friendly and informative .

AFC Urgent Care was easy to find and gave clear instructions upon arrival. I came for a covid test and they tested me in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.

- Verified patient on 1/18

I needed a Covid test fast and AFC did that; insurance even covered the whole cost! When the results were negative and I asked to speak with the doctor, they ran more tests and gave me a diagnosis within an hour and without an appointment. Everyone was super nice and helpful, especially the sweet nurses.

Memphis 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.
