Why Should New Yorkers Get Tested?
A recent report by New York City’s Department of Health1 revealed that STDs are on the rise in the city, especially in The Bronx. The study goes on to state that the most common infections in the region include Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. The Center for Disease Control2 reports that New York state is fourth in the nation in terms of adults and adolescents diagnosed with HIV and seventh in primary and secondary Syphilis cases. Of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, Chlamydia is the most rampant in the state with just over 109,000 cases reported in the state. With statistics like these, we cannot stress to New Yorkers enough the importance of practicing safe sex and getting the proper tests when necessary.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of sexual health testing depends on the type and/or number of tests you’re wishing to have conducted. Our individual tests for sexually transmitted diseases such as 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 NYC Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 locations across the country at which our patients can get tested at their convenience, including 18 in New York City alone. Hours of operation are from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm during the week and from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm 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 New York NY testing centers, we pride ourselves on creating a stress-free and professional environment for our patients. We won’t make you wait in long lines or stick you in overcrowded waiting rooms. We won’t administer potentially inaccurate or invasive testing procedures. And we’ll never do anything to embarrass you, offend you or jeopardize your trust in our expert staff or our top-grade medical 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 at a public sexual health clinic cannot offer the same level of discretion, speed, or accuracy, which is what sets our service apart from the rest.
We get it. New Yorkers are busy all of the time. And as important as STD testing is, it just doesn’t fit into the daily grind for many NYC working adults. But we don’t want anyone to avoid getting tested due to a lack of options, time, or information. So if you’re looking for an STD testing option in New York NY that is quick and convenient and produces comprehensive and accurate results, you won’t find one any better than our NYC area testing centers. You simply cannot afford to wait.
We understand that this can be a lot to comprehend all at once. We also know that every New Yorker’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.
