The staff at GatherWell are truly amazing people. I’d much rather pay for Covid tests at GatherWell than wait in lines to have a free test somewhere else. 10+ stars Due to surgeries I have to be tested.

Drive into the tent. They come out to your car, you never even get out of your vehicle. So long as you can roll your window down, and let them swab inside both nostrils, your good to go. You have your results within minutes. I didn't get a chance to read mine for about 45 minutes, but I saw that they had emailed me my results. This is a no brainer. If you can afford it ( my boss paid for mine), it is the fastest, easiest route to go.
