Are You Interested In Covid Antibody Testing?

All of the information regarding Covid tests, vaccinations, boosters, and how to protect yourself is constantly changing. Here at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic, we are always available to update you on the latest information and how you can ensure you are on top of everything. We can explain if you have questions regarding Covid antibody testing in Safety Harbor and whether you need it!

What Are Antibodies?

Antibodies play a crucial role in the immune system for your body’s natural defense. The antibodies you have protect you from harmful substances like bacteria, viruses, and other foreign invaders that could cause harm or sickness.

Your immune system detects antigens (proteins) on cell surfaces. Early on in life, the immune system learns how to identify our own body’s proteins on cell surfaces and ignores the antigens.

What Are Covid-19 Antibody Tests?

These are blood tests that look for the IgG antibody in the blood. This is the antibody that marks various pathogen cells for destruction. If you have been exposed to the virus that causes Covid-19, your body’s immune system will have produced the Covid-19 IgG antibodies.

It does take time for your body’s immune system to develop IgG antibodies, so you cannot have the test taken too early. Studies have shown that more than 90% of people diagnosed with Covid-19 produce the IgG antibody approximately 14 days from the beginning of the illness.

What Happens During the Test?

A blood sample gets retrieved from your arm just like a normal draw. After the sample gets taken, it is sent to a pathology lab for further testing. A positive antibody test shows you have either had or have been exposed to Covid-19, and your immune system now has the antibodies to respond to it.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
