NEA Baptist: Drive-Thru COVID Testing Available by Appointment

Jonesboro, Ark. – As COVID cases climb with the introduction of the Omicron variant, NEA Baptist has opened a Drive-Thru COVID Testing location at 909 Enterprise Drive in Jonesboro for patients seeking COVID testing.

Moving forward we ask that patients call 870-936-7866 to schedule an appointment for their test. The number of tests we will be able to complete will remain the same, but creating the appointments will make for a much more pleasant patient experience reducing wait time.

  1. I am currently using Dr. Long (a wonderful Neurologist at the NEA who is helping me as much as possible to rid of an very unusual (quirkie) health issue. Susposedly, these sorts of issues are accepted by the Mayo Clinic. However, since my MRIs and Cat Scans do not show abnormalities they do not want my health challenge.
    I am so pleased I have found Dr. Long. He has intently listened to my issues and concerns , and as a result he has referred me to a Movement and Disorders Clinic at Washington University in St Louis.
    I feel so fortunate that one of my friends referred me to Dr. Long.
