COVID-19 Testing at Wheeler


Wheeler offers drive-through and walk-up COVID-19 virus testing for Wheeler patients and the general public in two cities. We DO NOT do "rapid testing;" all tests are sent for PCR testing and results are generally received in five days, but result response time may vary.


We are happy to help those with special accommodations who may be unable to walk to the building. Please call our Navigation Center at 888.793.3500 for assistance.

In addition to the drive-through and walk-up testing option above, Wheeler offers both COVID-19 virus and antibody tests for current patients at any of its Family Health & Wellness Centers:

No symptoms are required to be tested. Please contact Wheeler's Navigation Center at 888.793.3500 to talk to a Wheeler provider about what options are right for you, and to learn more about our in-car and outside testing process at each Family Health & Wellness Center. Patients will need a virtual appointment with a provider to be assessed and test ordered.

Patients will be instructed to remain outside the Family Health & Wellness Center location, call the Navigation Center, and follow the prompts for outside testing. Virus testing is self-administered by patients under guidance by Wheeler staff and is a very quick process.

If you are an existing Wheeler patient and are arriving for your scheduled testing appointment, please call Wheeler's Navigation Center at 888.793.3500 from your car or outside. You will be prompted to select your location, and our staff will meet you outside to conduct the testing in a safe manner. Thank you!
