Our Patients receive Covid Antibody Screening Temperature and Oxygen Saturation Levels
We are now certified by US Health Diagnostics (FDA and Nevada Department of Health) to offer a finger prick blood lateral screening to determine the presence of IgG antibody which is an indication of previous viral infection and, that the individual may have developed some resistance to reinfection. The test also detects the presence of the IgM antibody which is an indication of an acute or present viral infection. RESULTS ARE GIVEN IN 15 MINUTES.
What is the Cost of the Covid Screening? (WITH PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE 99%...NO COST)
As the FDA has classified these tests as "Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) screenings, it is covered by your medical insurance. We require that you bring your medical insurance card and a government issued ID (ie: Drivers License) for each person. Persons under age only need a insurance card and one parent present
(17 years old and younger. No Testing will be done ages 5 and under).
Depending on the situation you may be eligible for multiple screenings, contact us for details.
If No Medical Insurance the cost of each screening is $90.00

Immunoglobulin G (IgG): Is a SAFE indication. This is the most common antibody. It's in blood and other body fluids, and protects against bacterial and viral infections. IgG shows the presence of COVID-19 Antibodies and indicates the patient has had the COVID-19 virus in the past and currently has antibodies in their system to protect against contracting this again. The positive test for IgG shows the patient is SAFE and can safely be treated in your office.
Immunoglobulin M (IgM): Found mainly in blood and lymph fluid, this is the first antibody the body makes when it is fighting a new infection. The presence of IgM shows the patient currently has the COVID-19 virus and should be treated with extreme care. They should be immediately removed (along with all family members) from your office and counseled on what to do for the next steps. Please see the counseling training.
If IgG Positive.....Previous Viral Infection but NOT Contagious
If IgG and IgM Positive....Current Viral Infection/Developing Resistance... you need to quarantine IMMEDIATLEY and contact your primary care doctor.

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test has been authorized by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by qualified healthcare professionals who operate with a CLIA Certificate of Waiver. This test has received an urgency use authorization from the FDA for purposes of detecting the presence of the IgG and IgM antibodies produced in response to the SARS-CoV-2 viral infection. The test has received a CLIA – Waiver and may be administered as a point of care test. This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 until the EUA is terminated under Section 564(b)(2) of the Act or the EUA is revoked under Section 564(g) of the Act; as such, the test has not been FDA cleared or approved.
Who is US Health Diagnostics?
US Health Diagnostics, Inc. is a general business corporation with facilities in Arizona, Kentucky, Missouri, and Nevada. The company is a licensed distributor of PCR, Antigen, and Dual Antibody Tests used to detect current and previous SARS-CoV-2 viral infection. The company maintains CLIA-Waiver Certificates and is authorized to administer CLIA-Waived Point of Care COVID-19 tests in the USA.
What Is an Antibody Test?
An antibody test is a screening for things called antibodies in your blood. Your body makes these when it fights an infection, like COVID-19. The same thing happens when you get a vaccine, like a flu shot. That’s how you build immunity to a virus.
You may also hear it called a serology test.
The antibody test isn’t checking for the virus itself. Instead, it looks to see whether your immune system -- your body’s defense against illness -- has responded to the infection.
How Does an Antibody Test Work?
A technician will take a bit of your blood, like through a finger prick. The test looks for one or both kinds of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19:
IgM antibodies, which happen early in an infection
IgG antibodies, which are more likely to show up later
What’s the Difference Between a Coronavirus Test and an Antibody Test?
A coronavirus test, sometimes called a diagnostic test, looks for signs of active virus. It’s simpler and faster than an antibody test. But it tells you only if you have the virus in your body at the moment when you’re tested.
An antibody test shows that you had the virus at some point in the past. It could be gone, or you could still be contagious.
Why Do We Need Antibody Testing?
You could have SARS-CoV-2 and not know it. Not everyone who gets it has symptoms. Experts hope antibody tests can give health officials a better idea of how common the virus is.
Once scientists know who has had the virus, they can find out how sick it makes most people. And they can study what happens if people who've had it come into contact with it again. Along with other scientific information, this can help researchers understand who might be immune to the virus.
The hope is that people with antibodies to COVID-19 can safely get back to work, and normal life, quicker.
These tests may also help with an experimental treatment for COVID-19 called convalescent plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood.
Researchers are studying how antibodies in plasma donated by people who’ve recovered from COVID-19 might help those who are ill with the virus. Early research shows that this plasma may help sick people get better faster.
You can volunteer to donate plasma through the National COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Project. Or ask your local blood donation center for information.
Are Antibody Tests Accurate?
Companies make their own claims about the accuracy of their antibody tests. Some say it’s up to 100%. Government researchers are studying how well the tests are working, but it’s too early to say for sure.
The FDA says it will crack down on any manufacturer that sells a bad test.
It’s important to note that some tests can mistake IgM antibodies from other coronaviruses, such as common cold strains, for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
Who Should Get an Antibody Test?
If you think you might have come into contact with the coronavirus, or if you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and have fully recovered, you can probably get tested for antibodies.
How Can You Get an Antibody Test? (CALL OUR OFFICE TO GET TESTING)
You can't do these tests at home. But they’re becoming more widely available in many areas. The FDA has issued emergency use rulings for several antibody tests so people can get them before they have full FDA approval.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) wants to study blood from 10,000 healthy people who haven’t tested positive for COVID-19. Researchers want to see how many people might have had the virus without knowing it. If you want to take part, email the NIH at email@example.com.
The CDC, along with other private and public labs, is also working to develop more tests for the public.
What Do the Results Mean for You?
If you test positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, it probably means you’ve had the virus. It’s also possible to get a “false positive” if you have antibodies but had a different kind of coronavirus.
A positive result might mean you have some immunity to the coronavirus. It’s too early to know how strong it is or how long it might last.
A negative result means you haven’t come into contact with the virus or you haven’t had it long enough to make antibodies. You could also have been exposed and not have antibodies. This is called a false negative.
No matter the result, if you don’t have symptoms, you don’t need follow-up. But if you do, you might have a diagnostic test to look for signs of active virus.
Because there’s a chance that test results can be wrong and because there’s so much we don’t know about the virus, it’s important to keep following official safety guidelines after your test. Stay home as much as you can, wear a face mask when you’re in public, and wash your hands often.
