COVID Testing for Mardi Gras

Due to the city mandate, our clinic is prepared to meet the testing demands of the public.  We offer both the antigen test and PCR test with results in 15 to 20 mins.  Our clinic has enough testing supplies to meet the needs of Mardi Gras balls, carnival balls, parades, and any Fat Tuesday fan.  We are located only 11 to 15 minutes from the French Quarter and the clinic will be open for normal business hours all week.


The city of New Orleans has extended their mandate.  Anyone over the age 5 must have proof of two COVID vaccine shots or a negative COVID test before entering a resturant, bar, and other businesses.  A negative antigen test or PCR test must be taken within 72 hours of entering a venue.  You can get more up to date information on this by visiting this government webpage on New Orleans Mardi Gras COVID testing mandate.

Self-pay COVID Testing Patients May Walk In

Our phone lines can be extremely busy.  If you don't need to be seen today, please use our contact page to get your question answered.  We have someone that monitors the questions from the contact page 7 days a week and you will get an answer extremely fast.

You may come as a walk-in if you are testing for COVID as long as you self pay.  We take COVID testing walk-in patients from 7am until 4:30pm, only if you are paying for the test yourself.  We close early Sunday, so last walk-in will be at 2:30pm, COVID testing only.

If you are walking in for anything else like seeing a doctor, call the clinic first to see if we can take you.

New medicaid patients are welcome.
