Recent patient review

The nurse that took my sons vitals was subpar and did not seem like she enjoyed being there or liked kids. The wait time was terrible I scheduled a day in advance and still had to wait over an hour in a room to be seen. It’s a bit annoying how they want you to preregister for an assigned time but accept walk ins and prioritize them over people that have been waiting. The provider, Kim Vogel, RN CPNP was amazing. She honestly made the wait worth it because she has a natural charisma and calm energy for children. My son didn’t even fuss with her and actually let her look inside his ear. She did an amazing and thorough job with making him feel comfortable and kept him calm and laughing throughout the whole exam, despite suffering from an ear infection and upper respiratory infection. Overall the experience could’ve been better but I understand it is Flu and RSV season. Just wish the nurse taking vitals was a little less cold to patients.

Latest COVID-19 Testing Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)
Oct 28, 2022
With the BQ.1.1 variant on the rise in Europe, experts express concern of a rise in COVID cases this winter; encourage everyone to max out their boosters and vaccinate their children (Houston Chronicle)

COVID-19 Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost in San Antonio?

    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 San Antonio?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near San Antonio 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 San Antonio?

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

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in San Antonio 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 San Antonio?

    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 San Antonio?

    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.

I was greeted by Joey. A nurse came and got me (wonderful, friendly greeting - sr moment her name started with a C). She then moved me to a clean, orderly room. Within minutes, Dr. Arnett came in. His manner was friendly, concerned, and empathetic. Had blood drawn, Covid test (negative thank God), ekg, chest c-ray, blood pressure, temperature, breathing treatment. Issues two prescriptions for prednisone, and an antibiotic to treat COPD exacerbation. Overall this is the BEST ER facility I’ve been to. Everyone was super friendly caring, and concerned! People tend to forget the elderly. Your faculty certainly doesn’t! 5 stars+ Thank you for taking care of me!

This is one of my favorite places to get care from but today it was terrible. All the doctor wanted, was to do a Covid test and that was the only thing that she seemed to be Interested in. She became presistent about trying to change my mind about getting my kids covid tested, after she realized I wouldn't give in she made faces and rolled her eyes at us. I felt this was terrible treatment and behavior coming from a professional doctor.

Regarding the wait time we were told it was only going to be an hour. So we sat in our car. We waited at least 2 1/2 hours. It would have best to let us know that we were going to be waiting longer.The nurse who administered the Covid test was welcoming, extremely courteous,, informative, and gentle. We appreciate him being so caring. The receptionist was courteous as well.

Wait time was long due to Covid tests needed. The system they used worked so well for us cause we signed in and they called us when it was our turn. We were able to do what we needed to do until it was our turn and return once it was our turn. The staff is amazing and it was a pleasant experience for us.

At the insistence of family to get a covid test done, I made a last minute decision to go to LS. From entry to exit no one gave an negative impression. Front office staff were patient and MA’s professional. My time with the Physician and Medical student was pleasant. I didn’t feel rushed. I even caught a glimpse of their “tele-Med hub” - all were hard at work! Next illness or injury find a Little Spurs pediatric urgent care clinic.

I went in for COVID testing. Of all the places in SA offering the test they were the fastest & most efficient. Most importantly, they are utilizing federal funds under the CARE Act to provide testing for the uninsured instead of price gouging with arbitrary rates like other locations in town. Thank You.

Office lady answering phones was very nice and well As the lady who did the covid test for my daughter. Happy with treatment. For a time in the last, about 6 year ago, we stopped going because some MD lacked bedside manners. Would def Reccomded again based on last experience.

San Antonio 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.
