You may have had COVID-19 with mild or even no symptoms and not even realized it. The IgG antibody test can help identify anyone who may have been exposed to or contracted SARS-CoV-2 or the Coronavirus and may have developed antibodies. Your IgG antibody status may help you be able to resume work and other daily activities. We use the best tests available so you can trust the results. Please schedule an appointment.
