Mobile Testing Center
The Iowa Clinic offers appointments for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) testing during the following times at our West Des Moines location:
- Monday 2:30pm-4:30pm
- Tuesday 1pm-4:30pm
- Wednesday 1pm-3:30pm
- Thursday 8am-12pm, 12:30pm-3pm
- Friday 1pm-2:30pm
- Saturday 1pm-2pm
You do not need to be an Iowa Clinic patient to be tested.
Testing is by appointment only – DO NOT WALK IN. Walk-ins will not be accepted at this time.
Patients with an appointment should remain in their cars for testing while limiting possible exposure to others. Doing this allows for us to keep our patients, healthcare providers and staff as safe as possible while being proactive to hopefully prevent further spreading of the virus.
Please note: due to delays in laboratory testing, it may take up to 6 business days to receive the results of your test.
What to Expect During your Testing Appointment
When scheduling your COVID-19 testing appointment, you MUST:
- Have a mobile phone with SMS text capabilities or an email address
- Have a valid driver’s license or form of identification
Once you confirm your appointment, you will receive a text message or email with check-in information. The online check-in process is mandatory in order for our staff to complete your testing at your scheduled time.
If you feel this is a true medical emergency, call 9-1-1 or visit your nearest emergency room (call on your way).
