We can test for some of the more common STDs, including HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, syphilis, and Hepatitis B and C.

When to Seek STD Testing

In some cases, STDs have no symptoms, which is why many medical professionals recommend that anyone who has engaged in sexual activity get tested. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 20 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) occur every year, and that can include those practicing safe sex. Nearly all types of STDs can be effectively treated and cured and those that cannot, such as HIV, can be appropriately managed with proper treatment.

What to Expect During an STD Test

When you visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for STD testing, one of our experienced medical providers will perform a brief physical exam, which may include a pelvic exam for female patients. Then, in order to perform the STD test, you will be asked for a blood and/or urine sample. For some patients, a cotton swab that will gather samples from affected tissue will also be required.

Treatment for STDs

If you are diagnosed with an STD, there’s no need to panic. Remember – STDs are more common than you might think and you took the proper precautions to get tested. Depending on the STD you have, you will be prescribed a specific treatment regimen, whether antibiotics, antiviral drugs, or other medications. It will be important to refrain from all sexual activity while you are treating your STD and to inform any prior partners so they can get tested as well.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
