Offering Urgent Care STD Testing & Treatment for Norwalk, CT, Residents & Visitors
PhysicianOne Urgent Care is pleased to provide testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) at our Norwalk, Connecticut, location. We test for a variety of STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes, HIV, and syphilis. After performing a physical exam and conducting some testing — which may include taking a urine sample, drawing blood, or collecting a tissue sample using a sterile cotton swab — we’ll be able to let you know if you have an STD and recommend an appropriate course of treatment.
Can STDs Be Treated?
Being diagnosed with an STD can be incredibly stressful, but you can rest easy knowing that almost all STDs are treatable, and most are curable. Treatment for chlamydia, one of the most common STDs, usually involves taking oral antibiotics for one to two weeks. Gonorrhea treatment also involves antibiotics. Some viruses, such as HIV and HPV, currently don’t have a cure but can be managed with treatment. Based on your test results, our knowledgeable providers will prescribe treatment that’s tailored to your specific condition.
STD Testing & Treatment on a Walk-In Basis
If you require STD testing or treatment and you don’t want to wait for an appointment with your primary care provider, you’ll be glad to know that PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers these services on a walk-in basis.
