How do I get tested?

If you would like to be tested, drive to the end of the emergency driveway. Use the emergency driveway to enter.

Testing is available through self-referral. By self-referring, you decline to meet with a primary care provider about your symptoms. If you would like to see a provider, you can make an appointment with one of our providers by going to or call our helpful staff at 432-837-0430 and they will schedule you.

Can I speak with a doctor about my symptoms?

If you would like to speak with a primary care provider, you can visit where you can check availability. Standard doctor visit co-pays apply for a provider appointment. You can also call to schedule an appointment at 432-837-0430.

You also have the option 24/7 to be seen by a physician in the Emergency Department. Standard emergency department hospital and physician charges apply.

How do I get tested when curbside testing is closed?

Check with your primary care provider or try one at or call to schedule an appointment at 432-837-0430. Standard doctor visit co-pays apply for a provider appointment.

When should I get tested for COVID-19?

If you have symptoms, test immediately. Testing can be helpful even when you don’t have symptoms or have recently experienced COVID-19, such as before an event or when visiting someone at higher risk. Test as close to the event time as possible (at least within 1-2 days) to help you make informed decisions about your health and the risk of spreading COVID-19 to others. If you use an antigen test, follow recommendations for repeat testing to be confident in a negative result.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.
