Sarasota STD Testing
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report, Sarasota has an STD rate of 879 cases per 100,000 residents. That figure includes 1,061 HIV cases, 1,722 chlamydia cases, 614 gonorrhea cases, and 72 syphilis cases for a city with a population of just under 400,000 making it the 121st most infected city in the nation as of 2021. And cases show no signs of slowing any time soon.
Remember, many STDs are asymptomatic and it is all too common to contract one and pass one along without even knowing it. In fact, the only way to know for sure if you’ve contracted an STD is to seek out fast, reliable, and local STD testing providers like Priority STD Testing. With Priority STD Testing, you can get tested today at one of three Sarasota testing facilities (2650 Bahia Vista St Suite 205, 3501 Cattlemen Rd Suite D, or 8451 Shade Ave #106). And we have many more facilities throughout South Florida as well. There is no better time than now for Sarasota residents to make their sexual health a priority and get tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

STD Testing FAQs for Sarasota Patients
How accurate are my test results?
Every test offered by Priority STD Testing is FDA approved and performed in CLIA certified labs. Rest assured, the results you receive through Priority STD Testing are the most accurate you’ll find anywhere. Keep in mind that STDs have different latency periods, and testing too early may yield an unreliable result.
Do I need to fast before getting tested?
Fasting is not required for any of our STD tests. However, if you are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, we do suggest you refrain from urinating for at least one hour prior to your test.
