What Is TB Testing?

If you need to be screened for tuberculosis (TB) for a new job or to participate in a certain activity, we invite you to see us at Argyle Urgent Care. In the spirit of keeping everyone healthy, screening for TB can prevent the unnecessary spread of this contagious disease and germs. TB is an airborne bacteria (Mycobacterium) that may be contracted from someone with TB that starts in the lungs. It can quickly spread to other areas (your brain, spine, or kidneys). When you are tested for TB, you can have one of three results:

  • Negative
  • Positive (latent)
  • Positive (active)

You may have TB and not know it because it is in a latent (or inactive) state within your body. Once you test positive for TB, you will be a carrier, even when you do not have an active infection. TB can be treated, but knowing that you have TB in time for treatment is very important. We can provide you with TB screenings with a simple skin test and read it within 42 – 72 hours after your initial test. We look forward to helping you get the testing you need to live a healthy life.

Visited this facility with my daughter as an Urgent Care visit on 10/20/20. Check-in was quick and efficient. Both the nurse (Katie) and physician (Dr. Kipp) were friendly and welcoming and made my daughter feel at ease. The care was not rushed and the facility was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this facility to family and friends.

Excellent care that gives the small down vibe. When I went here for a horrible ear infection I liked how they were little bit away from Denton but right off Country Club Road. They were very helpful even when I had to call back and bug them with some insurance information.

I came in at 1 am in quite a bit of discomfort and pain. The front desk staff was friendly and they took me back very quickly. Nurse was very friendly and caring. The doctor was thorough.
Clean and well run office! I work in the medical field and I liked what I saw and experienced. I won’t hesitate to return if needed.
