Estimated wait time: N/A minutes
In an effort to ensure residents in the Bay Area can continue to protect their families & our communities from the spread of COVID-19, BASS Urgent Care is proud to provide COVID-19 Diagnostic testing & COVID-19 Antibody testing at our urgent care facility in Walnut Creek.
COVID-19 Diagnostic and Antibody testing currently require healthcare providers request testing, patients can’t request test directly from the lab. BASS offers two options for the evaluation & testing process.
Note: Consider Telehealth/ video visit vs. In-clinic visit as more scheduling options are available. In-clinic calendar fills up faster. Telehealth video visit allows patients to get screened sooner then drive to BASS urgent care at a time convenient for sample collection.
During your clinic visit you will meet with a BASS clinician who will perform a brief diagnostic evaluation. This initial evaluation is necessary to allow us to evaluate symptoms, discuss testing options, & make an instant referral for your COVID-19 diagnostic test and/or antibody test.
1) Diagnostic (PCR) testing for positive/negative determination for an active Covid-19 infection.
BASS urgent care uses less invasive more comfortable collection technique called mid nasal.
Some others use nasopharyngeal technique which tends to be less comfortable and bit more invasive.
2) Antibody testing for evidence of previous exposure to COVID-19 an individual’s immune system has been exposed to Covid-19 and generated antibodies against it.
Diagnostic (PCR Test) - Results will be delivered to you and your provider ~ 72 hours after specimen collection. Urgent Care staff will provide written instructions on how to access results.
PCR resulting time varies, please be patient. We are doing our best to serve everyone as quickly as we can.
Antibody Test- Results are generally delivered to urgent care providers the same day. If results are received after urgent care is closed, results will be available following business day. Urgent Care staff will provide written instructions on how to access results.
If you are an employer or group of 10 or more in need of COVID-19 testing, we offer custom programs that may include testing at your place of business, consultation and education regarding Covid-19. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
