Updated on Jan 13, 2022

The following information is presented to assist our patients in finding COVID-19 Testing.

Options:

Testing at Desert Ridge Family Physicians

Testing throughout the community

Testing at Desert Ridge Family Physicians

Desert Ridge Family Physicians has limited appointments available for COVID-19 Testing.  Testing is available to patients who are experiencing symptoms or have had significant exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual.  We do not have sufficient testing supplies for “return to work”, “return to school”, or pre/post travel testing (see community resources for these needs).

COVID-19 Tests:

  • PCR Test (currently receiving results in 1-3 days), Sample collected at DRFP, testing performed by Sonora Quest or Labcorp
  • Rapid Antigen Test (results in 15 mins) – Only offered if supplies are sufficient and your circumstances meet our testing protocol
    •  Due to limited supplies and a decrease in accuracy, we are not performing rapid antigen tests on patients who are asymptomatic.

This appointment is for COVID Testing only, you will not see a physician

    • You may schedule a Telehealth visit to discuss any questions or seek guidance from your physician

To schedule your testing appointment, call us at 480-607-0060.  Testing is by appointment only, and only available to current patients of Desert Ridge Family Physicians.

Patients may schedule Telehealth appointments separately with their physician to discuss their symptoms, exposure or other questions.
