The state of New Jersey requires all surgical procedures to have a PCR Covid-19 test 6 days pre-procedure at most. We are happy to share results with your physician once they are completed.
To schedule your pre-procedure Covid-19 test, please contact our office.
We offer the PCR nasal swab with a turnaround time of 24-72 hours, rapid antigen testing with a turnaround time of 20 minutes and Rapid PCR which will give a result in about 30 minutes. Please note, some countries do not accept rapid antigen testing at this time so please check with that specific destination ahead of time. The Rapid PCR test cost is $160 and rapid nasal antigen test cost is $20. Neither rapid test are currently covered by insurance. The PCR nasal swab is covered by your insurance.
Curious if you have had Covid-19, but never had a confirmatory nasal swab? Antibody blood draws can identify if you were ever infected with Covid-19. It is best to test 6 weeks after symptoms.
