Our clinic is staying up to date with local and statewide efforts to combat the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As of June 22, 2020, Family Physicians Clinic began offering COVID-19 testing to established patients of our clinic.
Family Physicians Clinic offers the Sofia SARS Antigen Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) rapid testing.
If you have a positive test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19 because proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were found in your sample.
Therefore, it is also likely that you may be placed in
isolation to avoid spreading the virus to others.
It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is
incorrect (false negative) in some people with COVID19. This means that you could possibly still have COVID19 even though the test is negative.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, if you receive a negative antigen test for COVID-19, our clinic will send your sample for a PCR test to ensure that you are in fact negative of the COVID-19 virus.
To schedule an appointment, please call our clinic at (956)682-4515 or communicate with us through our Patient Portal.
Please note: COVID-19 testing kits might be delayed due to availability and demand. PCR Test results may take up to 7-10 days or longer.
