Why Should San Diego Residents Get Tested?
STD rates are on the rise in San Diego and have been for several years now. According to San Diego County records1, San Diego County saw a 4.1 percent increase in chlamydia rates from 2018 to 2019 (686.3 cases per 100,000). Recent studies reveal that the overall rate of syphilis increased 7.0 percent in that same time frame (34.4 cases per 100,000). Also on the rise, gonorrhea cases increased by 3.1 percent (190.8 cases per 100,000 persons). The Centers for Disease Control2 reports that in 2019, San Diego-Carlsbad saw a record 22,920 new chlamydia cases. With statistics like these, we cannot stress enough the importance of practicing safe sex and getting the proper tests when appropriate.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of testing depends on the type of sexually transmitted diseases 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, HIV 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).

We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our San Diego testing centers, we pride ourselves on creating a stress-free and professional environment for our patients. We won’t make you wait in long lines or stick you in overcrowded waiting rooms. We won’t administer potentially inaccurate or invasive testing procedures.

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. Free STD testing services cannot offer the same level of discretion, speed, or accuracy, which is what sets our service apart from the rest.
For many San Diego residents, there’s just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Unfortunately, STD testing is one of the many tasks we’re just “too busy” to take care of.

We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option anywhere else.
We know this can be a lot to take on. We also understand that every San Diego resident’s situation is different. It would be near impossible to cover everyone’s bases in just a few short sentences, so it’s perfectly fine to ask questions when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases, your sexual health and personal well-being. For this reason, our care counselors are available by phone or online chat should you have any questions or concerns or just want someone to help guide you in the right direction.
