On NBC 4 Washington News, Dr. Jen Sims, DC discusses the importance of COVID-19 antibody testing and the new COVID-19 antibody test at-home collection kit that can detect different types of antibodies developed after exposure to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Call Dr. Jen at 703-975-9144 to learn more about COVID-19 Antibody testing.
During these uncertain times, it is important for you to have access to accurate antibody testing. Dr. Jen has been working with KBMO Diagnostics to get safe accurate testing available to patients.
Antibody testing is a way to determine if you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. This does not detect if you have an active infection, just exposure. The test detects 2019-nCoV IgM and IgG antibodies.
If you believe you may have an active COVID-19 infection, please call your primary care physician.
If you are interested in this testing, this is how you can get access to the kits:
1. A 15-minute phone consult ($50) is required to determine the need for testing and to document any symptoms for our records.
2. If it is determined you are eligible for testing, an antibody test kit will be mailed to you. The cost of the test kit is $150.00.
3. Once the kit is completed and mailed out, Dr. Jen will call you with the results. The expected turn around time for test results, once received by the lab, is 48-72 hours.
If you would like to schedule a telemedicine call for testing please call us at 703-975-9144. Dr. Jen is available for any questions you may have.
