Service Details

What is in the PPD test?

A PPD (purified protein derivative) test is a testing method used to diagnose silent (latent) tuberculosis (TB) infection. You’ll be given an injection with PPD that will allow your provider to see if your results will be negative or positive.

About our urgent care service

With Nao Medical's urgent care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We're open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

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.

FAQ

What are the risks of getting a TB skin test?

Some people may have significant redness and swelling where the tuberculin protein was injected. This is more common in persons who have previously had a positive PPD test and then get the test again by accident.

In persons who have never been exposed to PPD, this response to tuberculin protein is extremely uncommon.

What should I expect on my first PPD test?

If you have no prior history of the test or have had a negative PPD reading previously, your medical provider will inject the tuberculin protein into your forearm skin at the first visit. Once the PPD is administered you will need to return in 48-72 hours for a follow-up visit.

At the second PPD visit, for a 2-Step PPD test, the tuberculin test reaction will be read. When you come back, inform the front desk staff that you are here for the second PPD visit and you will be fast-tracked into a room. Your PPD will be recorded right away, and you can get done in the shortest possible time.

Is there an alternative to a PPD test?

Yes. If you’d like a more modern TB test you can try the Quantiferon Gold IGRA Test instead.

Should I make an appointment for urgent care?

Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.

Can I go to urgent care for non-emergency?

Yes. You can go to urgent care for consultations, physicals, primary care, lab tests, and more.

Can I pay for urgent care appointment without insurance?

If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.
