Why Should Chicago Residents Get Tested?
A recent report by the Chicago Department of Public Health reveals that Chicagoans are twice as likely to have chlamydia and nearly three times more likely to have gonorrhea than U.S. residents elsewhere. The chlamydia rate in Chicago, for example, was more than twice the national incidence average (1,012 per 100,000 compared to 308 per 100,000). As a whole, Illinois ranks 11th out of 50 in terms of chlamydial infections and 15th in gonorrheal infections according to the Center for Disease Control. With statistics like these, we cannot stress to Chicago residents how important it is to practice safe sex and get the proper tests when necessary.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of 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 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 Chicago Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 testing sites across the country, including eight in the Chicago city limits and dozens more throughout northern Illinois. 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 Chicagoland testing facilities, we take every available step to ensure a comfortable atmosphere for our patients. You won’t be waiting in long lines or getting stuck in crowded waiting rooms. We don’t use invasive or inaccurate testing procedures. And we’ll never do anything to jeopardize your trust in our 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. Testing facilities like free clinics cannot provide the same level of privacy, speed, or accuracy as one of our facilities.
For many Chicagoans, 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 in the Chicago area. We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option in all of Northern Illinois.
We understand that this can be a lot to comprehend all at once. We also know that every Chicago resident’s situation is different and it would be impossible to cover everything in just a few paragraphs. When it comes to your sexual health and personal well-being, it’s perfectly fine to ask questions. 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.

Why Choose Priority STD Testing in Chicago, IL
Same Day Testing
Your time is important, which is why we offer same day testing. No appointments are required after your test has been purchased, and the testing process itself takes just minutes. Compared to other testing solutions, we will never fax or mail your lab order to the collection facility. This means you can get tested right away after your order has been placed and know that your information is kept secure and encrypted.
We pledge to respect your privacy all throughout this process. At no point will we contact to you directly without having your consent and we take every single available precaution to guarantee that your online details remains obtainable to you and only you via a protected login. All services provided by Priority STD Testing are HIPAA compliant which means that, by law, access to your personal health information is yours alone.
Public facilities or health departments using free STD testing supply little privacy when it pertains to your sexual wellness. Going to your doctor can be humiliating and even raise questions as to the reason for your visit by others. Our discreet collection facilities are nondescript, meaning you will never be singled out for getting an STD examination. No other patients will know the reason for your visit other than to provide a routine blood and urine sample.
Fast and Accurate Results
You don’t have to wait around for weeks while your test results are processed. With our process, you’ll have your results in as little as 24 hours after your initial visit. Additionally, all of our testing procedures are FDA approved and carried out in CLIA certified laboratories, so you can be sure that your results are clear and definitive. We strive for complete accuracy when it comes to our patients’ results. Once your results are compiled, you’ll be able to conveniently access your information rapidly and securely by means of an encrypted login.
While various other testing services might just provide you your results and send you on your way, we will not. For patients testing positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, our care counselors are standing by to talk about next steps. We’ll start by working with you to establish a phone consult between you and one of our physicians. No office visits are required. Medication is, in many cases, available the same day and can be conveniently picked up at your pharmacy of choice.
Knowing which tests are right for your situation is very important. Many times, not all diseases are tested for when you go to your doctor or a public medical clinic. We offer a wide array of testing options for several diseases such as HIV, oral herpes (HSV1), genital herpes (HSV2), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and trichomoniasis. Our care counselors are available to answer your questions about STD symptoms and the various types of STD tests that we provide.
Can I switch STD testing sites?
Yes! Your lab order can be used at either Alexandria testing center, or at any Priority STD Testing center throughout Virginia. If you need to get tested in a different state after you’ve already placed an order, simply contact a care counselor.
How do I get my test results?
Your test results are accessible through a secure login unique to your order, updated 24 hours a day including partial results. Once your final results are available, you’ll be notified by email discreetly. Test results are expedited as a rush order and typically process just 24-72 hours after visiting the collection facility. If you have questions about your results or require a treatment consult, our care counselors are just a phone call away. Nothing will ever be sent to your home or healthcare provider to respect your privacy.
Are my results confidential?
Our process is 100% confidential and HIPAA compliant. Your lab order and results will never be disclosed to your healthcare provider or personal doctor. All personally identifiable information is kept secure and encrypted while ordering your test and getting your results online or by phone. We are in compliance with all state and federal regulations governing the reporting of positive test results to ensure you are not contacted in the event of a reactive test.
Do you offer treatment?
We offer treatment options for patients who test positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis. If you receive a positive result, simply call and speak with a care counselor to schedule a phone consult with a physician. Medication can be called into your local pharmacy, and no office visit is needed. We are partnered with physicians at PWNHealth so treatment can be prescribed if appropriate in all states. You must have a positive result before treatment can be authorized. The physician consult fee is $65.
