Please note -- our hours have changed!! 3/24/2015
We offer same-night appointments for the TB skin test, also known as the PPD test. We see as many clients as possible, based on the order we hear from you, and how many medics we have on a given night. Please be aware that you may have to try multiple nights to get an appointment.

Concentra Urgent Care (510) 465-9565

Monday / Wednesday / Thursday / Friday / 1st and 3rd Tuesday every month:
Call for intake at 5:30 pm if you are HOMELESS

Call at 1:00 pm. Appointments are held later the same afternoon.
The TB test is not finished until you return 48-72 hours later to have it "read". This is how you get the result of your test. When you get the test, you will automatically get a follow-up appointment to read the result on the appropriate day.
