What our patients are saying

Thanks to Amber my experience with premium health was literally life changing . It’s one thing to test people for COVID but it’s another when you actually put your heart into it. LA needs people like her in the health field. She did everything she could to help me out .Please give that lady a raise because she deserves it! Thanks again Amber! God definitely has blessings for you around the corner !

First of all the employees of Premium Health are so very kind and patient. Have had to have a few testings as I have been working in a hospital for their yearly benefit enrollments. I would recommend them to all companies that need their employees tested….I have sent their info to the hospital I am working with in L.A. and hopefully in the future they will use Premium Health as they seem to not want to test on sight when they are actual hospital…..go figure….absolutely ridiculous 🙄

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
