Please not that Empire City Laboratories has contracted with UDoTest Inc, an independent physician network, that provides oversight and review for Covid-19 tests ordered. A payment of $5 is provided to UDoTest for this service. This order is dependent upon the review of the physician network including the answers to the survey questions.
