Why Should Boston Residents Get Tested?
According to a report released by the CDC, Massachusetts saw drastic spikes in chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis rates from 2012 to 2017. Chlamydia diagnoses, for example, increased 47% to nearly 30,000 individuals. Gonorrhea cases increased to more than 7,300, reflecting a 200% increase as syphilis cases increased almost 120% to 1,073. The study cites gay and bisexual men, adolescents, and racial minorities at being at the highest risk. With statistics like these becoming common across Massachusetts and the country as a whole, it is more important than ever to seek out and take proper and accurate STD 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.

We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our Boston testing centers, we go out of our way to create a comfortable environment for our patients. You won’t have to wait in long lines or get stuck in overcrowded 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. Free STD testing services cannot offer the same level of discretion, speed, or accuracy, which is what sets our service apart from the rest.
For many Bostonians, 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 Boston region. We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option in all of New England.
We understand that this can be a lot to comprehend all at once. We also know that every Boston 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 Boston?
Same Day Testing
You won’t have to clear your itinerary for us. At Priority STD Testing, we offer same day testing and the entire process, start to finish, is fast and hassle-free. The testing procedure only takes a few minutes, and patients are generally in and out of the facility in under a half hour. And your personal and private information remains secure and confidential all throughout the entire process.
From beginning to end, the Priority STD Testing process is private and discreet. At no point will we contact you directly without having your authorization and neither our name nor anything related to the services we offer will ever appear on a financial statement or credit card bill. And since we don’t accept payment from insurance companies, no information will be shown to your healthcare provider.
Public centers or health divisions using free STD screening offer little personal privacy when it pertains to your sexual health. Going to your doctor can be humiliating and even raise questions regarding the reason for your visit by others. Our confidential collection centers are nondescript, meaning you will certainly never be singled out for getting an STD. 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 first visit. In addition, all of our testing processes 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 total accuracy when it involves our patients’ results. As soon as your results are compiled, you’ll have the ability to quickly access your information rapidly and securely through an encrypted login.
For patients testing positive for gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomoniasis, our care counselors are readily available to go over treatment options. We’ll work with you to arrange a phone consult with a doctor and also get the medications you require sent out to your preferred pharmacy. In most cases, medications are available the very same day.
Understanding which tests are right for your circumstance is very important. Often times, not all diseases are tested for when you go to your doctor or a public clinic. We offer a wide array of testing options for multiple 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 address your questions regarding STD symptoms and the different kinds of STD tests that we provide.
