Dr. Khare spoke with NPR earlier this week to explain COVID-19 antibody testing. If you are wondering what antibodies are associated with COVID-19, and why we believe they provide a level of protection against COVID-19, take a moment to listen. Innovative Express Care uses the Abbott serology test, which we believe is the most accurate test on the market. You can schedule an appointment online.

ABC 7 joined us early this morning to cover the new COVID-19 antibody test available at Innovative Express Care. The blood test looks for IgG antibodies in the blood to determine if your body has already encountered the COVID-19 virus, or indicates the absence of these antibodies. The test is available to anyone who is well and has not had symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Insurance is accepted. Watch the full segment here.

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, you may now schedule a test to be seen at our outdoor medical tent online. A pre-screening appointment is no longer required. Insurance is accepted for the COVID-19 test and provider visit. If you do not wish to use insurance, self-pay ($250) is also available.
Patients who wish to consult with a physician before coming on-site for a test, may schedule a telemedicine visit. During the secure online appointment, we’ll review your symptoms, discuss your medical history and determine if any medical testing is necessary.
Symptoms of COVID-19 commonly include fever, shortness of breath, cough, runny nose, respiratory symptoms, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, and sometimes GI issues.
Patients who schedule a COVID-19 test online will receive a series of text messages to confirm the appointment. Insured patients will also be asked to submit their address and photos of their picture ID/insurance card. This is requested in advance in order to reduce the amount of time you need to spend on-site at our clinic.
