Convenient & Confidential STD Screening Near Hell’s Kitchen
Did you know that many STDs do not produce any noticeable symptoms? This means you could be infected and not even know it. Because your sexual health can affect every aspect of your well-being, including your physical, mental, and emotional status—as well as the wellness of others—STD screening is an important part of your overall health care. Also, because this service is not included in a routine check-up or annual physical exam, you must specifically ask for it.
At the MedRite Urgent Care walk-in clinic near Hell’s Kitchen, we make it easy: We offer convenient and confidential STD screening on a walk-in basis. If you’d like to be tested, you are welcome to stop by at your convenience—we’re open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. We can screen for many common STDs, including chlamydia, herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B and C, and HIV.
What Does STD Screening Involve?
Your provider at MedRite will begin by asking you some questions. This discussion is important because your answers will help your provider determine which type of STD testing is most appropriate for you. Please be honest; with us, you don’t have to worry about being judged. Also, we will always hold your personal information in strict confidence.
Your STD screening may include a physical exam, urine sample, mouth swab, or blood draw. The test itself will take only a few minutes, and we will contact you as soon as we have the results (typically within one to five business days).
Other than having an STD test performed by a medical professional, there is no way to know for sure whether you are infected. This information is vital because an early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help you achieve the best possible outcome—as well as reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others.
