COVID-19 Testing FAQ

How do I book a RT-PCR Covid-19 test?

We are online booking only. Here’s why:

  • This ensures a guaranteed appointment time and date for both the patient and the clinic staff.
  • This creates a secure electronic patient portal that you may use to access your appointment details, test progress, and most importantly, your secure test results in PDF format.

How is my sample for testing collected?

We recommend a self-swab, to remain contactless, however, if you would like some assistance, one of our staff is able to help. We use a swab to carefully collect nasal secretions, in a painless manner.

  • Insert the provided swab into each nostril, one at a time, approximately 1 inch into the nasal passage (midway).
  • Rotate the swab 3-4 times, remove gently, and repeat this process on the other side.

When will my RT-PCR Covid-19 test results be ready?

  • We guarantee next-day results for our RT-PCR Covid-19 tests post-specimen collection.
  • Please expect results by end of day (5-6pm) the next day.
  • You will be notified via text message to the cell phone registered under your patient account that your PDF test results are ready. Please use your patient login to check the status of tests as we receive a high volume of phone calls.
  • If you have ANY questions about your test results or lab report (you need to make adjustments to patient information, etc.), PLEASE EMAIL us at RTPCR@GoldenStateUrology.com. This is the ONLY way we can connect with you about results if you did not receive a text notification or if you need to adjust your patient information on your RT-PCR lab report. Thank you! 

How do I access my test results?

When your results are ready, you will be notified through text message. This text message will prompt you to login into your patient login (which you must create to view your test progress and test results).

Follow the link to this website in the text to login and see your results, which will be delivered in a PDF format for you to download/print for your records. If you are having difficulty accessing your results, you MUST EMAIL RTPCR@GoldenStateUrology.com to receive your results, or to make adjustments to your patient information for your lab results.

What if I miss my appointment or need to cancel?

If you are unable to keep your Covid-19 RT-PCR appointment, please EMAIL us at RTPCR@GoldenStateUrology.com at least 12 hours prior to your scheduled appointment, and we will make the appointment change for you. Email is the BEST way to connect with us if you have appointment and results inquiries.

Appointments booked same day/within the 12 hours are still subject to our cancellation policy. 12 hour or less cancellations are a 50% charge, no shows are a 100% charge. If you book an appointment for a COVID test and decide at the time of appointment you want to conduct a different test it’ll be a 50% charge and you will need to re-book a new appointment for the appropriate test you need.

Do I need a referral from a medical professional?

No, do not need a referral from a medical professional to be tested for Covid-19 with us.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept insurance information currently. Please check with your insurance provider or employer(s) about reimbursement for a RT-PCR Covid-19 test.

You will be issued a receipt/invoice for your scheduled test after your online payment is received. Please check your email’s spam folder.

How old can a patient be to get a COVID-19 test?

Young patients, under 18 years old, must be tested with a parent or legal guardian with them.

A parent or legal guardian must complete this registration for all minor patients (Nebraska: a minor is anyone under age 19).

The patient’s parent or legal guardian must be able to assist with nasal swabbing sample.

May I bring someone with me or should I come alone?
