Covid Testing

Crush the Curve COVID-19 Testing

We have partnered with Crush The Curve Idaho in order to provide access to unrestricted testing to our Magic Valley community.  We offer drive-up testing without an appointment.  See details below regarding the type of testing available and the associated cost.  If you have further questions, you may call our dedicated COVID Testing information line at 208-595-5094 and leave a message (to be returned the same business day) or just drive up and talk with our staff.  Please do not call our regular pediatric clinic line as we need to keep that phone line open to care for our pediatric patients.
