Vitality Urgent Care Provides COVID-19 Testing via RT-PCR technology

Vitality Urgent Care provides RT-PCR COVID-19 tests in our testing facility by appointment only. Our team is dedicated to delivering results with a turn-around time of fewer than 8 hours. We understand the tight travel deadlines and wish to provide peace of mind for your next trip.

What Kind of Pre-Travel COVID-19 Tests does Vitality Urgent Care Offer and Why?

  1. RT-PCR / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) COVID-19 is a nasal or oral swab that has been authorized by the FDA and developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific. This test has been authorized for the detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Results < 8 hours.
  2. ACCULA automated RAPID SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR – NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test)  The nasal test has been authorized by the FDA developed by Mesa Biotech / Thermo Fisher. Results < 2 hours.
  3. Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2  automated RAPID SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR – NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test)  The nasal test has been authorized by the FDA developed by Cepheid . Results < 2 hours.
  4. ID NOW – NEAR/ NAAT (Japan Travel only) – The Nasopharyngeal test has been authorized by the FDA developed by Abbott. Results < 20 min.

We selected this particular technology for Pre-Travel testing due to it being highly accurate and one of the most reliable tests currently available. They are accepted as the “gold standard” for  Pre-Travel COVID testing.

In addition, many countries require incoming visitors to have a negative RT-PCR/ NAAT or NEAR/ NAAT test 48 – 72 hours prior to entry. Most countries will reject the proof of a negative Antigen/Rapid test, so it is important to be aware of the country’s specific requirements in place for entry during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Google Reviews for Urgent Care Dr Levin and the entire vitality staff have been amazing. I found them before Covid hit, and with 3 small kids at home it is such a blessing to have a doctor come to you for sore throats, pink eye, cuts, bruises, and all other things that kids get into monthly. For my wife and I, their available hours are well into the night, so after work appointments are super Convenient. Not waiting in sick rooms is great. And now, throughout covid, at home covid tests certainly beat waiting in hours-long lines like our friends and family. I can’t recommend highly enough, we should have done this years ago! Thanks Dr Levin and team!

Rachel Sepelyak, Schaumburg (Google)

Google Reviews for Urgent CareI was in Rolling Meadows for a week of training – without knowing anyone or having my own transportation. I woke up at 9pm with a high fever and didn’t know what to do. I knew I couldn’t change flying home the next day feeling so sick. I immediately began to research urgent cares in the area & found Dr. Levin. WHAT A BLESSING! At first I was nervous having someone come to my hotel room – but after setting up my appointment and talking with Izabella I felt immediately at ease and safe. Dr. Levin came and treated my illness at my hotel. He was extremely professional, friendly, and compassionate. I appreciated how he talked me through everything he was doing and what his thoughts were. I was amazed he was able to to a rapid strep test right in front of me. Dr Levin and Izabella were my saving grace while I was traveling. thank you so much for your help and the kindness you showed me!!!!!

Google Reviews for Urgent CareWe use Vitality often as urgent care for our sons and also primary care for me. Words can not express how blessed we are to have them. This week my son fell ill and I scheduled Rod to come out and see him. My son is alive today because Rod is amazing at what he does. What we thought was probably an infection, Rod knew was something more severe. My son was sent to the ER and diagnosed with a deficiency that can cause acute severe anemia. I highly recommend this company. I know for a fact that the care received here is unlike anywhere else.

Kevin Lott, Rolling-Meadows (Google)

Google Reviews for Urgent CareWonderful and caring doctor. Even took the time to get me to Walgreens to meet my fiance and get my prescription. You can not get better than that. Love you man and even though I’m leaving town tomorrow I’ll always remember that act of kindness you extended to me. Keep being awesome and I wish you the best with your business! It’s looking bright!

Frank Huang, Arlington-Heights (Google)

Google Reviews for Urgent CareIncredibly responsive. Rod was excellent with his care of my son. The price, convenience and quality of care is what sets this company apart from others. Highly recommend.

Alexander K, Palatine (Google)

Google Reviews for Urgent Care I am beyond please with my experience with Vitality Urgent Care. The scheduling process was very smooth with multiple convenient times available. It was nice to be seen at the comfort of my own home when i felt so awful. I was happy to skip the waiting room. Rod the nurse practitioner did not rush and took time to explain my condition. He was thoughtful and sent the medication to 24 hours of pharmacy. I did end up paying the same copay as I would pay for primary care. Will definitely use the medical house calls service again.
