Swab Testing

Bryan is our collector for the office. We utilize Aegis Sciences Corporation to conduct the swab tests and they are billed through their company. Each test will be billed under each patient's insurance.

Dr. Nellas' Suboxone patients undergo mandatory swab testing as part of the Suboxone treatment program at our office. Other patients who are prescribed controlled substances may also be swabbed to ensure the safety of every patient. 

Please read our oral swab guidelines
