Where To Get Your COVID-19 Test Results

If your order is from a provider with UT Physicians: Call your health care provider who ordered the test, or visit the MyUTHealth Patient Portal for results.

We are simply administering the testing.

COVID-19 Testing frequently asked questions

We will obtain a sample with a nasal swab.

A nasal swab is a test to check for upper respiratory infections.

  • We will place a cotton swab inside your nose to reach the nasopharynx, (which is the part of the pharynx that covers the roof of the mouth).
  • The swab will be sent to a lab and studied to see if the virus that causes COVID-19 is present.
  • After your test, you may notice that your nose feels slightly irritated or it may even bleed. Your doctor should have your test results within 5 days.

The sample collection is fast and should only last a few seconds.

The risks are minimal. You may gag a little during the test. You may also feel slightly uncomfortable, but you shouldn’t feel any pain. You may have a minor nosebleed afterwards.

You don’t need to do anything different to prepare for this test. Follow the instructions given by your provider when taking the sample.

Please call 713-486-CO19(2619) to make an appointment.
