We now offer both PCR and Antigen COVID-19 TESTING to all patients on demand.
In accordance with the expanded need for Covid-19 testing across the state, Mann ENT offers the PCR test as well as the CareStart Antigen Test (while supplies last) regardless of symptoms or exposure history.
PCR results are returned in 2-3 days, while the CareStart Antigen Test offers a result in 10 minutes while you wait in the office.
Tests are performed on-sitewith a swab briefly placed into the nose or mouth.
Our providers will discuss with you our testing recommendations for your particular situation, as well as the specific strengths and limitations of each test at the time of your visit.
Of note, our physicians have been fully vaccinated, and our staff is on the way to this goal by the end of January 2021.
For Telemedicine visits, we currently employ several intuitive phone, laptop and desktop platforms. You will be contacted prior to your appointment with simple instructions on how to connect from your computer or smartphone.
