A certificate (e.g. for travel) can be made immediately.

N.B. the usual test required for travelling is the more accurate PCR test
However, the UK and USA accept the antigen test and the certificate will confirm the neccessary criteria.

The cost at these labs is about €120.

Alternatively, if organising the test yourself is problematic, Dr Kerr can do it for you.
The cost for this service is €50 each. This does not include the lab fees.
The patient is seen in Dr Kerr’s office and the relevant information is collated to create a Covid test request. The doc will then make an appointment with the lab.
The test is performed at another location, and hopefully as soon as the following day.
If coming to the office isn’t practical then the consult can be virtual and Dr Kerr’s bill paid online.
Lab Fees:
One lab can offer a 2-day turnaround for €75 or the same day result in English for €115 (closed Sunday)
Another lab that is open at the weekend charges up to €113. If the result needs to be in English the lab will add another €20. The result is usually ready within 24 to 72 hours.

If you would like to use this service then please phone or use WhatsApp +39 335 8361682.
