Palm Springs STD Testing
In Palm Springs, STD testing services that are accessible and discrete have become more important than ever to sexual health. As mentioned by DAP Health, Coachella Valley has seen an increasing rate of syphilis cases among other common sexually transmitted diseases (STD).1 But, privacy has become a rare commodity. It can be difficult to find STD testing centers with reasonable scheduling times that also prioritizes your privacy. Due to this, people would rather forgo testing. With chlamydia as the most commonly reported sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the Riverside County area (425.8 per 100, 000) and syphilis cases doubling from 2010 to 2015 (9.2 per 100,000), residents of Palm Springs need testing options from providers who value their sensitive health information.2
That’s why Priority STD Testing is dedicated to ensuring discrete and professional testing options for Palm Springs, CA residents.

Including California, we have thousands of testing facilities providing confidential STD testing and quick results with only an easy urine sample or blood test. Some other providers in Palm Springs, CA may offer free STI testing or free HIV testing, but they often use uncomfortable swabbing methods, can have long waiting times and may not offer STD treatment. A home test kit may seem like a great idea, but their STD test results are not as reliable, and they are unlikely to offer treatment services. And while visiting your doctor’s office may be an option, you may be worried about your physician billing your health insurance or sending your STD test results to your home.
