Here’s what you need to know about STD testing & treatment at this health center:

For testing involving urine samples, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, do not urinate or engage in sexual intercourse for one hour before testing.

Many STD tests require a genital exam.

Rapid HIV testing can be done by swabbing the inside of your mouth or with a blood sample taken from a finger stick. The results are available in 10-40 minutes.

Counseling and confidential (private) testing for STDs are provided by trained staff who are sensitive to your needs and concerns.

Some vaccines are given in a series over the course of several months, which would require you to return to the health center to get the full benefit.

Payment is expected at time of service unless other arrangements have been previously made.

Some STD testing and treatment services may be covered by your insurance. If you want to use your insurance, please be sure to bring in your insurance information at the time of your visit.
