You will not need an appointment to get your TB testing done at our clinic.
Most TB tests are $50. The cost of the serum is waived with a written referral from a licensed physician for certain medical circumstances such as diagnostics and pre-biologics testing.

TB Testing requires two visits:
Planting: The first visit is to plant the serum on the forearm by intradermal injection.
Reading: The second visit is 48 hours after the planting unless otherwise noted below. The reading is an in-person physical examination of the forearm to check for any reaction and to receive documentation.
