The Hope Clinic has expanded its services to now offer free STI/STD testing. At this time we are able to test for HIV, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. All STI testing is free and no needles are used. The HIV screen is done using an oral swab test. A positive result to this test would require additional testing at another facility to confirm. The testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia is done through a urine sample.* The sample is then sent on to a highly reputable lab for the results. Results from the tests are typically available the following week; a follow-up appointment will be required to receive the results. This appointment must take place in person. Positive results to Gonorrhea and Chlamydia can be treated at our sites for free.
If you think you may have an STI or are at risk for having an STI please schedule an appointment at The Hope Clinic to receive free testing, education and treatment. Appointments are best in order for our nurses to be available to assist you, however walk-ins are also accommodated as time allows. Make sure to allow 30-45 minutes for your appointment.
If you have any questions about specific STIs/STDs, you can find more information here. Our nurses would also be happy to answer any questions you might have.
*Note: Females are not able to give a specimen while on their period.
