Only one test can be performed per visit if you are using medical insurance.
Same Day Results
Certain institutions such as the Bahamian Government may only accept a PCR COVID-19 test to allow entrance. There is currently no such a thing as a “rapid PCR test.” If you specifically require a PCR test, please be aware that results may take as long as 7 days and this test must be done at the office and not our drive through location.
