We Are Now Offering COVID-19 Antibody Testing
Antibody testing helps to determine if you had the coronavirus and have developed antibodies to it. Developing antibodies to the coronavirus does not guarantee that you are immune to it. Practicing social distancing is still a good thing to do.
COVID-19 antibody testing is a simple blood test that gets sent to the a phlebotomy lab. It may take 1-4 days to get results back.
Testing can be covered by your insurance, but please check with your insurance company first. There is cash pay options available too.
If you think you currently have COVID-19, please go to a Banner Health Testing Center. Because we work with immune compromised patients, we cannot risk their health and safety and we’re NOT a COVID-19 testing center. We will only be testing for the COVID-19 antibodies.
As Arizona is starting to open back up we can test you and see if you ever had COVID-19.
For current updates, we recommend visiting the AZ Department of Health web site for Highlighted Infectious Diseases. You can also look at Governor Doug Ducey’s Twitter Page for announcements.
