COVID-19 TestingUT Physicians offers a convenient service that allows our staff to test you while you are in your vehicle. It’s quick, easy and available to anyone who has an order from a health care provider (physician, nurse practitioner, etc.). You also must call 713-486-CO19 (2619) to schedule an appointment. Test results may take up to five days.
