Service Details

About our monkeypox testing service

Monkeypox is an infectious disease and should be treated as a public health concern. At Nao Medical we offer a swab testing service to test if you’re positive for monkeypox.
Your medical provider will swab your rash or sore that’s suspected to be monkeypox. The sample will then be sent to the lab and your results will be available in 24-48 hours.
Before you get tested for monkeypox
Please book your appointment ahead of time so that we can prepare a private room for your testing session. Once you arrive for your appointment, you’ll need to stay in your car until you’re retrieved by a medical provider.
Your medical provider will escort you to the testing room, and then your swab test will be done there. This CDC approved procedure helps to ensure the safety of both yourself and others.

Before booking your appointment, please note:

Ensure that your insurance benefits include urgent care or contact us to confirm if your individual/group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.
