- Send-out COVID PCR Test: This lab PCR test is the gold standard and is ideal for international travel, job & school release, nursing home visits or pre-surgery screening. It provides results in 72 hours.
- Rapid COVID-19 Abbott One NAAT test: This rapid test provides results within hours using our in-house lab equipment. It is also suitable for job & school release, nursing home visits or pre-surgery screening. However, The Abbott test may be acceptable for international travel but you must check with your airline or Country tourist bureau.
- Rapid Antigen Test: We carry the in house Ag test for symptomatic patients who need to know immediately if they have the Covid antigen.
- Antibody Test: We carry the in-house antibody test for those patients who have had the Covid vaccine or actual disease and want to know if they have antibody production to the Covid virus.
*Some insurance companies have reinstated copays for COVID visits. Depending upon your insurance plan, you may be responsible for your copay at the time of your visit. If you do not have symptoms or were not exposed, and need the results for travel, work, or school release, then the cost is not covered by insurance and is out-of-pocket.
Please give us a call or schedule a telehealth visit and a provider will help you determine which test is appropriate for your situation.

COVID-19 TESTING Q & A
What is a rapid COVID-19 Test?
The rapid test that we administer is a molecular-based test that allows patients to see their results within about 20 minutes. The rapid test is an advantage over the traditional lab-based test because lab-based tests often take days before results are determined. The sooner people know whether they are infected and potentially contagious, the sooner they can be treated, self-isolate and help prevent community spread.
How do rapid COVID-19 tests work?
Samples are collected by a qualified medical provider at our clinics in Napa and Benicia. We take every precaution to keep you safe and comfortable while we administer the test through a nasal swab. Once upper respiratory samples are collected, we process the results at our clinic while you wait.
What type of rapid COVID-19 test do you administer at Urgent Care + Telehealth?
At Urgent Care + TeleHealth, we offer the Abbott Labs ID NOW test which is considered to be one of the most reliable tests. This test is a rapid molecular test as opposed to an antigen or antibody test. It uses the DNA or RNA of the virus even if only small amounts are present. We also offer a rapid antigen test.
Is the rapid COVID-19 FDA approved?
The Abbott Labs ID Now test meets the FDA’s emergency use authorization (EUA). We also offer a send-out lab-based PCR test. This PCR test is the gold standard and is ideal for international travel, job & school release, nursing home visits or pre-surgery screening. It provides quick results in 36-48 hours and sometimes sooner.
Do I need a doctor’s referral for the test?
No. We ask that you begin the process with a telehealth visit. Our providers will assess your symptoms prior to the test.
Is the test covered by insurance?
In most cases, the test is fully covered. Some insurance companies have reinstated copays for COVID visits. Depending upon your insurance plan, you may be responsible for your copay at the time of your visit. If you do not have symptoms or were not exposed, and need the results for travel, work, or school release, then the cost is not covered by insurance and is out-of-pocket. Please contact us in advance so that we can verify coverage.

Great Doctor & Staff Very efficent and caring
Except for being 35 minutes late opening, the experience was good.
Dr Ahwah was very good! He listened to me and checked me thoroughly. I highly recommend him. I’m not sure though if he has other regular office other than Urgent Care, otherwise, I will have him as my PCP.
Very quick! I showed up as a walk-in patient right when the Clinic opened. Spent maybe 15 minutes filling paperwork and dealing with insurance. Saw the doctor almost immediately, took him 5 seconds to determine my ailment, sent me off with 3 prescriptions. A couple days later I’m as good as new!
Quick and efficient! Glad to know this option of a quick visit is so close to home and open on weekends
I was treated promptly and keep kindly, when I came in after a bicycling accident. The medication that was prescribed is working. The glued wound continued to bleed at home, so I had to apply a large adhesive strip to stop bleeding on my clothing. I’m trending better. Thanks for your care.
Very helpful staff in & out quickly . Highly recommend for urgent care .
I was already at Concentra and the customer service was so bad I left and drove to NewMD in El Cerrito. I was done before Concentra called me to set up my information for my visit. The staff at NewMD was absolutely wonderful.
The doctor and whole team was awesome. My first time there and my first time to an urgent care facility. Good to know there is a convenient place in my neighborhood that I can get in and out quickly. A quick diagnosis, vitals, medical notes/info, and a prescription …and a CVS in the same mall for the pharmacy!
The staff and doctor were all quite courteous and welcoming. I got a lot of information about my condition from the doctor, who was very thorough and had an excellent “bedside manner.”
visit to your medical service was timely & well done
Dr. Ian Ahwah was great! He knew exactly what was going on with my severe sore throat and prescribed me some meds that took care of the condition. Thank you Dr. Ahwah!
