Need a TB test? Accesa Health offers TB testing on a walk-in basis and we are experts at getting you in and our quickly.
We offer three types of TB tests: the standard TB Skin Test (PPD, or Mantoux, Test), Chest X-ray, and the QuantiFERON-TB Gold blood test.
We take tuberculosis skin testing very seriously. We order our testing materials directly from the manufacturer to ensure that the serum is safe and accurate. To provide a nearly painless experience, we use a special sterile 27g testing syringe. Our techniques greatly reduce the risk of infection or complications.
After receiving a tuberculosis skin test, the patient has to return after 48-96 hours to have the test site examined. On this second visit, we can sign off on any TB test documentation that you need or provide our standard paperwork to document your TB test.
Our price includes all office fees, the placement of your test, the reading of your test after 48-96 hours, and proof of your test result. Unfortunately, we cannot administer tuberculosis skin tests to pregnant or nursing women. Please note that 2-step TB testing requires 2 separate injections on different days and costs $80.
Secure Your Dose By Pre-Ordering

If you have a positive TB test and need a Chest X-Ray, please see our Imaging page.
We are excited about developments in our QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT) testing program. The QFT test is a new FDA-approved blood test that can screen for tuberculosis.
There are several advantages to the QuantiFERON-TB Gold test. Because it is a blood test, only one visit is needed. Additionally, it is very accurate for all people, including people who have received the BCG vaccine previously. As a result, it serves as an alternative to a chest x-ray for anyone who is at risk for a false positive skin test result. Through Accesa Health, a documented positive skin test result is not required to get the QFT test.
