COVID-19 Testing


What is COVID-19 Testing?

COVID-19 testing is a diagnostic procedure to confirm a SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes a COVID-19 infection. COVID-19 is a contagious virus that spreads from person to person through droplets that form when you cough, sneeze, or speak. An infection can cause a wide range of symptoms that can become life-threatening, especially in the elderly and those with weak immune systems. HealthWell Family Health offers in-office COVID-19 testing services to confirm an infection. The medical team can also provide treatments to ease the severity of your symptoms.

To slow the spread of COVID-19 infections and help you get an accurate diagnosis, HealthWell Family Health offers in-office COVID-19 testing services. Nina Aronov, FNP-BC, and the medical team use PCR-based tests to confirm an active infection. They also provide customized treatment plans to ease a chronic cough, fever, and other symptoms of COVID-19. Call the office in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens, New York, to schedule COVID-19 testing or book an appointment online today.

When should I schedule COVID-19 testing?

You should schedule COVID-19 testing at HealthWell Family Health if you develop symptoms of a viral infection such as: Persistent cough, fever or chills, muscle aches, sore throat, shortness of breath, and fatigue or weakness. You may also need PCR testing if you were around someone with a known COVID-19 infection. The medical team offers polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests to confirm or rule out a COVID- 19 infection. During your test, your provider collects a sample of fluids from the back of your nose with a cotton swab. While the test can be uncomfortable, it only takes a few seconds to collect the sample. The team sends the collected sample to a medical lab for further evaluation. Results of PCR tests can take 24 hours or longer to come back. The HealthWell Family Health team contacts you with your results when they're ready.

What happens after COVID-19 testing?

If your COVID-19 test is negative, you likely don't have an infection. However, it's still possible to get negative results and have COVID-19, especially if the infection is recent. If your test is positive, you likely have an active infection, even if you don't have symptoms. After positive test results, the HealthWell Family Health team can recommend strategies to ease your symptoms. You should also isolate yourself from others for at least five days. Many people recover from COVID-19 with rest and home care. You should seek emergency medical care at the nearest hospital if your symptoms become severe or you have difficulty breathing. Call HealthWell Family Health to schedule COVID-19 testing or book an appointment online today.

Dr. Nina is amazinggg!! She took her time with me and didn't rush, which I truly appreciated. She was incredibly sweet, as were the medical assistants. The office is pretty and clean. If you want a PCP that genuinely cares, listens to you, is sweet, and doesn’t rush you then I highly recommend!

I walked into Dr. Nina's office on a mission to find a PCP that listens to me, that is kind and doesn't rush through our appointment and that mission is complete! The space is clean and really nice and the two employees were really helpful in figuring out some health insurance hurdles with me. Dr. Nina listens to you and your concerns, takes her time and is super personable. I am relieved to have found a great doctor.

I had a great experience here. The office is clean and up to date. I had an annual exam and NP Aronov communicated and listened thoroughly and you can tell she cares about her patients. Her medical assistant was amazing as well. She greeted me and did my vitals as soon as I came in and drew my blood as soon as my exam was over. Time is managed very well here, which is hard to find. I highly recommend!
