You are scheduled today for a drive through COVID-19 Diagnostic Test. This will be performed today at our Rio Salado location in Tempe. The address for this testing site is 1803 E Rio Salado Pkwy, Tempe, AZ 85281. Please make note of this address as it is for our new location. Please disregard any other address you may have received. 

IMPORTANT this is not at our clinical office in Mesa. This testing is ONLY available at our test site in Tempe at 1803 E Rio Salado Pkwy, Tempe, AZ 85281

Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time. The time slots have been spread out to ensure that the right number of people arrive at the right time. While we will not turn you away for arriving outside of your scheduled time. Arriving as close to that time does help it run more smoothly for you and others.

This is only for the diagnostic test. We will not be offering the antibody test at this location. This is due to increased case numbers in Arizona. We are increasing access to the Diagnostic Test to slow the spread of the virus.

**Under no circumstances are cars to back up onto Rio Salado. Please be cognizant of other vehicular movement. Do NOT back up traffic onto Rio Salado into the intersection. That is a safety hazard and is not acceptable.

Today is the first day that our Rio Salado testing location will be operating. We are bringing on new locations, new employees and new providers to continue to expand access to testing for all. Please bear with us for any delays this may cause. However, know that we are not new to offering testing. Our medical practice has offered testing to the community since March. This is simply a new location for us. 

We have minimized the number of appointments we have scheduled today. However, as stated this will be a new operation for us at this location. I want to be fully transparent that there could be unanticipated delays. However, we have done everything possible to minimize them including significantly minimizing capacity. 

Please be compassionate with our employees. Everyone involved has given so much to making testing a reality. We truly are doing everything possible to ensure our testing runs smoothly and as efficiently as possible. We could not do it without our amazing team. 

Your safety and the safety of our employees is our number one concern at all times. We will not do anything to compromise safety. We ask that you do the same. Please be cognizant and careful at the site. Be aware of your surroundings to prevent injury to yourself or others. Do not exit your vehicle. 

Due to increased testing today we may not be able to answer your phone call in a timely fashion. We apologize sincerely for this, however we hope you understand that these are extraordinary circumstances. 

Once again please ensure that traffic is never backed up onto Rio Salado. As stated this is our first day operating at this location. Please help us to do everything possible to help it run as safely and smoothly as possible. Help us expand access to as many as possible and slow the spread of the virus. Together we can make a difference and help our community. 

Thank you for trusting us with your care. 

Sincerely,

Raymond Embry

PS – We are working to expand access to testing as fast as possible. We are looking for new locations to operate testing from. Additionally, we are sending providers directly to employers to offer testing for their employees. If you have employees you would like to test or your employer might be interested in offering testing please contact us. They can send an email to [email protected] to start the conversation. 

PPS – If you are interested in antibody testing we can help you get tested at a future date. Once you have a negative test please reach back out to us to schedule. As you can imagine things are in flux due to recent increased case numbers. Our main priority right now is helping people find out if they currently have the virus.

PPPS – We are looking for additional parking lot or facilities to setup drive through testing. Such as schools, churches or office parks. If you know of any please reach out to us. Help us expand access to testing for all. [email protected]
