3 Ways to Keep Yourself Physically and Mentally Well

April 9, 2020

Dr. David Gude, Chief Operations Officer, of Texas MedClinic Urgent Care offers 3 ways to keep yourself physically and mentally well.

  1. Wash your hands often.
  2. Practice social distancing as much as possible.
  3. Stay informed but take breaks from media as needed.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

Texas MedClinic Urgent Care is providing COVID-19 diagnostic testing at all 19 clinics in San Antonio, Austin, New Braunfels and Spring Branch. Patients are highly-encouraged to Check-In Online to follow social distancing guidelines and avoid time in a waiting room.

Texas MedClinic is working closely with our laboratory partners in processing the COVID-19 test.

Once a patient is tested for COVID-19 at a Texas MedClinic, the specimen is sent to Quest Labs in Dallas for processing. (Texas MedClinic uses a different commercial lab than San Antonio Metropolitan Health Department.)

Due to an increased volume in the complex COVID-19 testing, the laboratory has notified health providers that their normal 48 hour turnaround for test results has increased to 7-8 days. It is reasonable to anticipate it could extend beyond 7-8 days.


Cost for evaluation and testing IS EXPECTED be covered by insurance or through government sponsored programs. For private pay patients, Texas MedClinic is charging $115 for the COVID-19 test which does not include fee for exam or additional testing that may be required. Payment is due at time of visit.

Those seeking a COVID-19 test must undergo a medical exam; the test and exam have a fee that most insurance plans cover.

Texas MedClinic was established in 1982 by Dr. Bernard T. Swift, Jr., as a group medical practice that specializes in urgent care and occupational medicine. Texas MedClinic has grown to 19 locations in San Antonio, New Braunfels, Austin, and Round Rock. Texas MedClinic is staffed with 82 medical providers including physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners and over 450 employees.

For those WITH COVID-19 SYMPTOMS or with other illnesses or injuries, please register online. If there are no available time slots, we most likely can still accommodate you, except late into the evening.

We are still performing physicals, drug and alcohol testing, TB tests, and immunizations, please check-in online or walk-in to schedule a time slot.

For those WITHOUT COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, we created an Express Testing Service.
To better serve you during the high demand for COVID-19 testing, please follow these instructions:

  • You MUST Check-In Online. If all slots are filled (for the next 24 hours), we are not able to see you as a walk-in and will not perform a test.
  • If you Check-In Online and reserve a slot that is intended for the ill or injured and present to the clinic without symptoms for COVID-19 testing, we will turn you away.

For Texas MedClinic COVID-19 Rapid Testing Pricing please check the COVID-19 FAQ page for more information.

While we are working hard to support the community's need for testing, we continue to serve those who are ill and injured and who need Urgent Medical Care.
