About the Point-of-Care Tests
We offer antigen and PCR tests that detect active COVID-19 infections. We also have tests available for strep, flu, RSV and more. All of our tests provide quick and objective results within a few hours.
Our pharmacies are open 9 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 2 pm Saturday. We have appointments daily and walk-ins are also welcome! Due to the time-sensitive nature of the tests, we do not take walk-in tests within an hour of our pharmacies closing.
If you are needing a test for travel or for an event, you are welcome to come inside our pharmacy for your test. If you have had a possible exposure and/or are sick, we ask that you stay curbside at our pharmacy and call us when you have arrived for a test.

The Physician 360 strep and flu tests are conducted by our staff before the virtual consult, while the other Physician 360 tests are completed at home.
For COVID-19 tests, we offer antigen and PCR tests to test for current infections. The rapid antigen test looks for pieces of proteins that make up COVID-19 virus to see if you have an active infection. The antigen test is intended for patients with COVID-19 symptoms and in the early stages of infection, usually within the first 5 days of symptoms. The test can also be helpful if you have been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19. While the median incubation period for COVID-19 is 3-5 days, symptoms can appear up to 14 days after exposure. The rapid PCR test is a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) that uses polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and lateral flow technologies for the qualitative, visual detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal samples.
We will administer the test to you curbside or in the pharmacy. If you have had a possible exposure and/or are sick, we ask that you stay curbside at the pharmacy. You're welcome to come inside the pharmacy if needing it for an event or travel. If you'd like your test curbside, please call the pharmacy when you have arrived.
