Health disparities are a reality for millions of people in the United States every single day. At Carbon Health, we’ve made it our mission to make world-class healthcare accessible to all.

How are we doing this? By helping people in areas that lack resources and access through our innovative pop-up COVID-19 testing clinics. With locations currently open in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Brooklyn and plans to expand to even more cities soon, Carbon Health is redefining what healthcare looks like during this pandemic.

How it works

These permanent, state-of-the-art clinics may not look like your average doctors’ office, but they function like one.

It’s required to book an appointment at carbonhealth.com before coming to the pop-up COVID-19 testing clinic. This is so we can safely guide you into the clinic and reduce your risk of exposure to the virus. Once you’ve booked your Coronavirus testing appointment online, go to the clinic during your scheduled time.

Once inside the pop-up COVID-19 testing clinic, you will have a virtual visit with one of our providers. A nurse will be on-site to administer the diagnostic test and answer any questions you might have.

Diagnostic tests are used by doctors to diagnose people with or without symptoms related to COVID-19. Specimen samples are taken from the patient’s nose or throat, with results in 5–7 days. We highly recommend you download the app before your appointment so you can easily find your test results, book future appointments, and access your medical records easily.

Visit us at these locations:*

San Francisco: 470 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94107

Los Angeles: 1148 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015

Brooklyn: 90 Havemeyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Seattle: 220 6th Ave N., Seattle, WA, 98109

How Carbon Health is ensuring pop-ups clinics are safe and clean:

  • Everyone on the clinic team is screened daily.
  • Team members wear protective equipment at all times and sanitize their hands after handling any patient’s belongings.
  • All surfaces are cleaned hourly and in between patient visits.
  • Clinics are deep cleaned at the end of each day.
  • Social distancing protocols in place at all times.
  • By expanding testing to as many people as possible we can keep everyone safe, healthy, and hopeful for a brighter future.
