Why Should San Jose Residents Get Tested?
A recent study reveals that sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in California and in Santa Clara County specifically. Since 2010, rates of gonorrhea and syphilis have nearly quadrupled. Most recently, the state of California ranked third in the country for syphilis cases (6.5 per 100,000) and 17th for chlamydial infections (487.5 per 100,000) according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention2. In 2018, California reported 25,344 cases of syphilis and 79,397 cases of gonorrhea–both more than 200 percent higher than ten years prior according to the California Department of Public Health1. With statistics like these, we cannot stress to San Jose residents enough the importance of practicing safe sex and getting the proper tests when necessary.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of testing for sexually transmitted diseases 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.
Where in San Jose Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 testing sites across the country, including ten in San Jose alone and dozens more just a short drive away. 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 care counselors are standing by to assist.
We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our San Jose area testing facilities, we take every available step to give our patients a comfortable and stress-free setting. You won’t find any long lines or overcrowded waiting rooms here. Our procedures are non-invasive and take only a few minutes. And we’ll never do anything that would cause you to lose trust in our services. We aim to keep your tests and results completely confidential and away from your permanent medical record (we 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.
For many 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. For this reason, we aim to provide the quickest and most convenient testing services for sexually transmitted diseases in the San Jose area. We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option in all of California.
We know this can be a lot to take on. We also understand that every 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.
