A clinic appointment is a scheduled visit at The Urgency Room with one of our providers. Your test will be conducted upon arrival and you will meet directly with an Urgency Room provider. The provider will review your results with you and discuss any treatment options necessary.
Virtual appointments are available daily from 8am to 3pm. You must be in Minnesota at the time of visit. Log in when it's convenient for you and meet with one of our Urgency Room clinicians online. Upon completion of your video-visit, you will be instructed to go to The Urgency Room to complete your test -we'll be waiting for you. You will administer the COVID test yourself. We will contact you as soon as your results are available, typically in less than an hour.
