Through our rapid diagnostic services, patients can quickly find the answers they need to their health questions and take steps to protect their loved ones.
How Does Rapid PCR Testing Work?
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing screens for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2—the novel coronavirus that causes the respiratory illness known as COVID-19. It’s widely recognized as the “gold standard” of COVID-19 testing, delivering highly accurate results with little need for re-testing.
During a rapid PCR test, a clinician gently inserts a swab into the patient’s nostril to collect a mucus sample. The sample is then promptly evaluated in our onsite clinical lab, and results are provided to the patient the same or next day depending on the time of their visit.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
