Why Should Bakersfield Residents Get Tested?
According to a recent study by the Kern County Public Health Department, STD rates throughout the county are on the rise. The county cited nearly 11,000 cases of common STDs in 2018 (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV) including nearly 7,000 cases of chlamydia alone. Kern County rated as the third worst county in California for chlamydia diagnoses as well as sixth worst for primary syphilis, and fourth worst for gonorrhea. With these numbers continuously on the rise throughout Kern County, it is more important than ever that residents seek out reputable STD testing services and get tested whenever appropriate.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of testing depends on the type and/or number of tests you’re wishing to have conducted. Our individual tests (chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes I/II, HIV 1 and 2, syphilis, and trichomoniasis) run between $49 and $109 each. We also offer a twin panel test for chlamydia and gonorrhea which costs $129 (a savings of $49) as well as an all-in-one ten-panel test which costs $198 (a savings of $405). For a complete list of test options, visit our “Tests & Pricing” page.

We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our Bakersfield testing facilities, we take every available step to ensure a comfortable atmosphere for our patients. You won’t be waiting in long lines or getting stuck in crowded waiting rooms. We don’t use invasive or inaccurate testing procedures. And we’ll never do anything to jeopardize your trust in our services. Our goal is to keep your tests and results completely confidential and off of your permanent medical record which is why we will never report anything to your healthcare provider. Testing facilities like free clinics cannot provide the same level of privacy, speed, or accuracy as one of our facilities.

Why Choose Priority STD Testing in Bakersfield CA?
Same Day Testing
Your time is important, and we don’t want to waste it. That’s why we provide same day testing to our patients. The process is simple, convenient and quick. In fact, most patients are in and out of the testing facility in less than thirty minutes. In contrast to various other testing services, we will never fax or mail your lab order to the collection center, so you can be tested straight away after placing the order– no waiting required.
We are aware of the demand for personal privacy when it comes to your sexual wellness. Our service is HIPAA compliant, and absolutely nothing will be mailed to your home or reported to your doctor. We will never call you directly without having prior consent, and your personal privacy is respected every single step of the way. Our business name or anything pertaining to STD testing will not appear on your bank or credit billing statements after your test has been ordered.
Public clinics or health divisions supplying free STD screening supply little privacy when it concerns your sexual wellness. Going to your physician can be humiliating and also raise questions as to the reason for your visit by others. Our private collection centers are nondescript, meaning you will certainly never be singled out for getting an STD test. No other patients will know the reason for your visit other than to provide a regular blood and urine sample.
Fast and Accurate Results
We aim to provide you quick and 100% accurate test results. Samples are expedited as rush orders and patients typically obtain their results in just 24-72 hrs. Furthermore, you can be certain that all Priority STD Testing services are approved by the FDA and administered in CLIA certified labs. Once the process is complete, you’ll be able to access your results online 24 hours a day through an encrypted and secure platform. And our care counselors are standing by should you have any type of questions along the way.
Our care counselors are readily available to discuss treatment options for patients testing positive for gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomoniasis. We’ll work with you to set up a phone consult with one of our doctors to authorize the right treatment. Office visits are not necessary. Appropriate medications are available, in most cases, the same day and can be picked up at your local pharmacy.
Oftentimes, not all diseases are tested for in a doctor’s office or public clinic. It is vital to know which tests are right for your particular circumstance. We offer a wide variety of testing choices for numerous diseases such as HIV, oral herpes (HSV1), genital herpes (HSV2), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and trichomoniasis. As always, our care counselors are on call to answer any questions you may have about STD symptoms and the tests we offer.
