Covid-19 Rapid Testing
@ DocTalker Family Medicine
COVID-19 and Antibody testing available on site. Advanced booking required, please call the office ahead of time.
Our office is registered to administer the COVID-19 vaccine; as soon as we receive notice, we will notify our patients with further details of the future procedures. In the meantime, please visit Fairfax County Health Department or the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) websites:
https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/covid-19-vaccine/ to learn more about the vaccine and the vaccine priority groups.
DocTalker RAPID Covid Testing Available: results in 15 minutes. (We use both the BD Veritor plus system and the Abbott COVID-19 Ag tests)
The rapid test is approved for people who have COVID-19 symptoms within the first 5 days and is NOT the preferred method of testing for screening asymptomatic people such as needing confirmation prior to flying.
We also do the molecular tests (also called PCR tests, viral RNA tests, nucleic acid tests) which are sent to the lab and usually take <72 hours to return the result. This is the most accurate test and also the one required prior to flying or having a medical procedure.
If you think you need / want testing we can help you decide which test is right for you.

On National Doctors Day, we say “thank you” to our physicians for all that they do for us and our loved ones." #NationalDoctorsDay
In DFM fashion we're going to thank Dr. Alan Dappen with a collage of his pandemic looks over the last year! This has been a tough year, and we as a team cannot thank Dr. Dappen enough for everything he does! Most of all for not letting a day go by, or a patient for that matter, without hearing the sound of laughter. If you would like to send your thanks to Dr. Dappen, E-mail and we'll compile your notes Although a lot of you can just shoot him a text message straight to his cell phone!#DocTalkerFamilyMedicine #familymedicine #laughteristhebestmedicine #stayhealthymyfriends #anytimeanywhere #telemedicine #healthcarethewayitshouldbe
