How to Make an Appointment
To receive coronavirus testing at Fast Track Urgent Care, you must first schedule a Virtual Visit. During your visit, you’ll speak “face-to-face” through your smartphone, tablet, or computer to a clinician who will evaluate your symptoms and determine if coronavirus testing is the appropriate next step. If it is, we’ll set up an appointment for you at our Silver Spring location, during which you’ll remain in your car for a simple swab test.
Contact Fast Track Urgent Care today if you have any questions regarding our Virtual Visits, coronavirus testing procedures, or accepted insurances. Our team looks forward to helping you find the answers you need.
