COVID Information

Davidson Family Medicine is pleased to offer accurate and convenient RAPID Covid-19 testing for our established patients.  Results within 15 minutes.

This is a simple and painless front-of-the-nose test performed by our staff at our office.  There is no need to wait in line at a CVS Minute Clinic, Urgent Care, or Emergency Room.

Examples of when to get tested:

  • Development of symptoms of Covid-19 (within 5 days of symptom onset): fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, change in ability to taste and smell
  • Exposure to a person later known to have Covid-19
  • Asymptomatic testing needed for employer or travel

This test is highly accurate.  It is one of only 2 antigen tests authorized by the FDA for emergency use for detection of Covid-19 antigen particles.
