Why Should San Francisco Residents Get Tested?
According to San Francisco’s Department of Public Health1, STDs are on the rise in the city. One study, in particular, revealed that cases of syphilis in women increased 144% between 2017 and 2018. On a wider scale, cases of chlamydia in San Francisco increased by 79 percent between 2013 and 2017. In 2017, San Francisco had the highest rate of early syphilis in the United States, and from 2010 to 2017 reported syphilis cases increased by over 100%, according to the San Francisco City Clinic.2 With statistics like these, we cannot stress enough the importance of sexual health, practicing safe sex and getting the proper tests when appropriate.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of patient 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 including a gonorrhea and chlamydia test 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.
Where in San Francisco Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 testing sites across the country, including eight in San Francisco alone and dozens more throughout the Bay Area. Our facilities are open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm on weekdays from 7:00 am to noon on Saturday. To find the lab closest to you, visit our “Find A Lab” page and enter your five-digit zip code. If you have any questions, our sexual health care counselors are standing by to assist.
We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our San Francisco 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. And we’ll never do anything to embarrass you, offend you or jeopardize your trust in our expert staff or our top-grade medical 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. Free STD testing services or a no-charge health center cannot offer the same level of discretion, speed, or accuracy, which is what sets our service apart from the rest.
We get it. San Francisco residents are always rushing and there’s not enough time in the day to get everything done. And as important as STD testing is, it just doesn’t fit into many people’s schedules. But we don’t want anyone to avoid getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases due to a lack of options, time, or information. So if you’re looking for an STD testing option in San Francisco that is quick and convenient and produces comprehensive and accurate results, you won’t find one any better than our Bay Area area testing centers. You simply cannot afford to wait.
We know this can be a lot to take on. We also understand that every San Francisco 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 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.

Your time is important, and we don’t want to misuse it. That’s why we provide same day testing to our patients. The process is simple, convenient and fast. In fact, most patients are in and out of the testing health center in under thirty minutes.

When you need to get checked, you deserve personal privacy and sensitivity with regard to the testing health center and its staff. Going to a public clinic, public health department, and even your physician for STD testing can often be an awkward and uncomfortable experience. With Priority STD Testing’s private collection facilities, nobody will know the purpose for your visit and you will never be singled out for any reason.

In many cases, medicine is available the very same day and can be sent to the pharmacy of your preference.
Your doctor, urgent health center or public health care clinic might not always test for all types of STDs, including hepatitis B and hepatitis C. It is very important to recognize which tests are available and which tests are right for you. Priority STD Testing offers comprehensive lab testing for sexually transmitted diseases including HIV, oral herpes (HSV1), genital herpes (HSV2), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis C, trichomoniasis, and hepatitis B test.
