Why Should Long Beach Residents Get Tested?
In a recent study, Long Beach reported 4,321 cases of chlamydia and 1,690 cases of gonorrhea which were both the second highest in the state of California. The city also saw 499 cases of syphilis which is the third highest total in the state. These and other STDs continue to trend upward both in Long Beach and across California. Gonorrhea cases, for example, increased 267 percent from 2013 to 2017 and syphilis by 143 percent. As shocking as these statistics might be, they only underline the importance of seeking out proper STD testing services and finding the time to get properly tested. It has never been more important for Long Beach residents.
How Much Will It Cost?/h3>
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).

Your time is invaluable, and we don’t intend to misuse it. That’s why we offer same day testing to our patients. The process is simple, convenient and swift. In fact, most patients are in and out of the testing center in under 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 right away after placing the order– no waiting required.
Throughout this process, we promise to honor your privacy. We will never reach out to you directly without having your approval and we take every single safety measure available to keep your online details safe and secure. Your encrypted online account is available to you and only you. All services provided by Priority STD Testing are HIPAA compliant which means that, by law, access to your private health information is yours alone.
Public clinics or health departments using free STD testing provide little privacy when it involves your sexual health. Going to your doctor can be embarrassing and also raise questions regarding the reason for your visit by others. Our discreet collection facilities are nondescript, meaning you will never be singled out for getting an STD. No other patients will know the reason for your visit other than to provide a regular blood and urine sample.

No office visits are required, and your medication is sent straight to the pharmacy of your choice. In almost all cases, medicine is available the same day.
In most cases, not all diseases are tested for in a physician’s office or public medical clinic. It is vital to know which tests are right for your particular circumstance. We provide a 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 readily available to address any concerns you may have regarding STD symptoms and also the tests we offer.
Can I switch STD testing sites?
