Acadia Women's Health in Crowley is currently accepting new and established patients who wish to be tested for COVID-19. Testing is available to all local residents; you do not need to be a current or prior patient of the clinic's to be tested.

The office is asking residents to first set up a virtual appointment with one of their providers to discuss symptoms. If the patient meets criteria for screening, they will be given an appointment to drive up and be tested for COVID-19. Patients MUST remain in their vehicles.

Only those who are exhibiting symptoms (fever, cough, fatigue, or shortness of breath) should request a screening and test.

The lab is expected to have a 24-48 hour turnaround for testing, and patients are asked to self-quarantine while awaiting results.

If the clinic's providers are covered by a patient's insurance, no fee will be picked up at the time of the visit/testing. However, there will be a fee if the clinic is not providers on the patient's insurance and for those who are uninsured.

Same day appointments are available but walk-ins are not accepted.
