Baltimore STD Testing
At Priority STD Testing, we aim to give our patients the most confidential, trusted, and fastest STD testing services available. We are committed to being respectful toward our patients through every step of the process.
We know that one’s sexual health is a sensitive topic and our patients have an expectation and a right to privacy. We don’t undervalue this. Our patients are never called out for any reason at any one of our facilities. We don’t make any unsolicited contact (phone, emails, etc.) or send you anything in the mail that references our name or services.

Why Should Baltimore Residents Get Tested?
According to a recent study by the Maryland Health Department, the state of Maryland recently saw drastic spikes in rates of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. From 2016 to 2017, gonorrhea cases increased 15 percent, syphilis cases by 12.3 percent, and chlamydia by 9 percent. Historically, Baltimore has been at or near the top of Maryland cities with the highest STD rates. These massive increases in Baltimore and across the state of Maryland are in line with nationwide trends. As rates continue to rise, it is more important than ever that Baltimore adults seek reputable testing services and get the proper tests when appropriate.
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 Baltimore Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 testing sites across the country, including three in Baltimore and several more just a short drive away. Centers are open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm on weekdays and 7:00 am to noon on Saturday. To find additional labs in the area, visit our “Find A Lab” page and enter a 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 Baltimore 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 Baltimore 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 in the Baltimore area. We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option in the region.
We understand that this can be a lot to process all at once. We also realize that everyone’s situation is different and there’s no way to address every possible scenario in just a few short 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.
Our Testing is:
- FDA Approved
- HIPAA Compliant
With our private online ordering service, you’ll receive the tests you need in a discreet and prompt fashion. Rest assured, all test orders are 100% confidential.
We promise that no one is going to jeopardize your personal privacy or humiliate you at any of our screening facilities. Your screening is your business and nobody else’s. We seek to make the process 100% discreet.
We won’t keep you waiting for weeks for your results. Compared with other testing services, our results are processed in just 24-72 hours and can be accessed at any time using a secure login or by calling a care counselor.
Why Choose Priority STD Testing in Baltimore?
Same Day Testing
You won’t need to open your schedule for us. At Priority STD Testing, we provide same day testing and the entire process, start to finish, is fast and convenient. The testing procedure only takes a few minutes, and patients are usually in and out of the center in less than a half hour. And your personal and private information stays protected and discreet all throughout the entire process.
We recognize the need for privacy when it comes to your sexual wellness. Our service is HIPAA compliant, and absolutely nothing will be mailed to your residence or reported to your health insurance provider. We will never contact you directly without having prior consent, and your privacy is respected every step of the way. Our business name or anything pertaining to STD testing will not show up on your bank or credit billing statements after your test has been ordered.
Public clinics or health departments providing free STD testing provide little personal privacy when it concerns your sexual health. Going to your physician can be humiliating and even raise questions as to the reason for your visit by others. Our private 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 regular blood and urine sample.
Fast and Accurate Results
We strive to provide you fast and 100% accurate test results. Samples are expedited as rush orders and patients commonly get their results in just 24-72 hrs. In addition, you can be certain that all Priority STD Testing services are approved by the FDA as well as carried out in CLIA certified labs. Once the process is complete, you’ll be able to access your results on-line 24 hours a day through an encrypted and secure platform. And our care counselors are standing by should you have any kind of inquiries along the way.
While various other testing services might just provide you your results and send you on your way, we will not. For patients who test positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, our care counselors are waiting to review 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 needed. Medication is, in most cases, available the very same day and can be easily picked up at your pharmacy of choice.
It’s important to understand which tests are right for your situation. Oftentimes, just a few are administered at your local public medical clinic or physician’s office. Priority STD Testing provides a variety of testing options for multiple diseases including, but not limited to, HIV, oral herpes (HSV1), genital herpes (HSV2), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and trichomoniasis. Care counselors are standing by and happy to assist should you have any questions concerning the various testing options.
