“We’re proud to support the needs of our patients, staff and communities by providing greater access to COVID PCR testing,” said John Radford, M.D., President at WellNow Urgent Care. “Through some of the most difficult periods of the pandemic, our team has continued to adapt to ensure we are delivering the highest quality care, whether that’s meant expanding same and next-day PCR testing to all of our New York locations, adjusting our hours, or growing our Virtual Care platform to see more patients virtually.”

COVID PCR testing is available at all WellNow locations, but asymptomatic patients are strongly encouraged to visit one of WellNow’s dedicated testing sites. Asymptomatic patients include individuals who may have been exposed to COVID but are not currently exhibiting common symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell.
