Rapid diagnostic tests can help quickly diagnose a number of ailments, helping you get treatment faster. The knowledge gained from rapid testing may also aid you in quarantine efforts, particularly when it comes to the coronavirus, helping you prevent the spread of infectious diseases to others. These tests generally are not required to be sent to a lab – rather, we can see results directly in our office, allowing you to know faster.
Texas Emergency Care Center offers the following rapid testing services:
- COVID Antigen tests
- Strep tests
- Flu tests
- RSV testes
- Mono tests
- Testing for other infectious diseases
Just because you have an emergency doesn't mean you have to feel rushed. Always expect warm, friendly and respectable results with us. We care about you and your experience here.

Rapid COVID-19 Testing
No Appointments Are Necessary to Test for Coronavirus
Texas Emergency Care Center has been at the frontlines helping patients since the outset of the COVID-19. We provide COVID-19 tests, including PCR tests, rapid antibody tests, and antigen tests. If you currently feel like you have the flu or are experiencing symptoms like fever, body aches, persistent cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and a sudden loss of taste or smell, Texas Emergency Care Center can screen you for the virus.
We offer rapid antigen COVID-19 virus testing to diagnose active COVID-19 infections through the collection or a nasal swab that includes nasal secretion specimens from the back of your nose. If your rapid test comes back negative but you believe you might still have COVID-19, we can perform a PCR test as the next recommended step. For patients whose antigen tests come back positive, it’s important to isolate/quarantine per the CDC instructions so you avoid spreading the infection to others.
Patients who have PCR tests can expect their specimens to be sent out for analysis. We will notify you of your test results as soon as possible, which may take one to three business days.
