Has a partner told you that they tested positive for an STI? Please let the scheduler know when you call to make your appointment. Come to your visit prepared to provide the person’s full name and birthday. If the person gave you a contact card or a copy of their lab results, please bring it with you to your visit.

If you think you have been exposed to an STI, please do not have any sex (oral, vaginal, or rectal) until you know all of your test results. Your nurse / provider will let you know when it is safe to resume sexual activity.

We offer two types of testing: fast-track screening and provider exam

A ‘fast-track’ screening is available to those who do not have any symptoms related to a possible STI. A physical exam will not be performed in a fast-track visit. This visit will include testing for the following infections:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • HIV

A provider exam visit is for those who are experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with an STI (in some cases). Symptoms of an STI can include genital odor, itching, discharge, bumps or rashes, or pain in the genital area. Testing for the following STIs may be included in your visit:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • HIV
  • Trich (if indicated) 
  • Herpes (if indicated - we do not offer blood testing)
  • Hepatitis C (if indicated)

 We do not test for urinary tract infections (UTIs). If you believe you have a UTI please see a primary care or urgent care provider for testing.
