STD Testing at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Derby, CT

STD Testing Derby CTA sexually transmitted disease (STD) is a bacterial or viral infection that is transmitted during sexual activity. The most common symptom of an STD is no symptom at all. Therefore, if you’re sexually active, it is vital to take steps to protect your health. The two most effective ways to do so are to undergo STD testing on a regular basis and to use a condom every time you engage in any form of sexual activity.

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
