They are fast and professional. And you get the results the next day. I went to another location last time and it took a lot longer to get tested and get my results. I won’t go anywhere else after that. Why would you? Awesome job you guys. Thanks

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is RT-PCR better than Rapid Antigen?

The RT-PCR test is processed at a high-complexity laboratory and is generally much more accurate than the Antigen test. The RT-PCR test recognizes the virus DNA itself, whereas the Antigen test recognizes the protein made by the virus. As such, the RT-PCR test is able to recognize the virus at a much earlier stage after exposure, whereas the Rapid Antigen test detects the presence of the virus at a later stage.

For patients that don’t have any symptoms and were exposed, we generally recommend the RT-PCR test.

 

What type of tests can I get?

We provide the RT-PCR test, which is the most accurate test and is accepted by most travel destinations.

We also provide Rapid Antigen tests, which provide speedy results but are less accurate than the RT-PCR tests. 

Where can I get tested?

You can get tested at any of our locations. You can find a list of our locations at premiumhealth.us/locations
