Getting Tested In Memphis
Every test we offer is FDA-approved and administered in CLIA certified laboratories by trained professionals. We can proudly say that our tests produce nothing but conclusive results for our patients.

Our testing processes are quick and non-invasive and most patients are in and out of our testing facilities in less than a half hour. Once collected, a patient’s sample is sent via rush order to one of our labs for processing and results are compiled and sent back in as little as one business day.

Why Should Memphis Residents Get Tested?
According to a recent study by the Tennessee Department of Health, Shelby County boasts the state’s highest rates of chlamydia (961 cases per 100,000 residents) and gonorrhea (394.3 cases per 100,000 residents). Both STDs are most apparent in patients 20-24 years of age. While the split of gonorrhea cases is approximately even between men and women (1,873 males to 1,821 females), chlamydia cases are much more prevalent in females (6,264 to 2,738). As statistics continue to rise not only in Memphis, but across the state and country, it is more important than ever for adults to seek reputable STD 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.

We Are Better Than A “Free Clinic”
At each one of our regional testing facilities, we take every available step to give our patients a comfortable and stress-free setting. You won’t find any long lines or overcrowded waiting rooms here. Our procedures are non-invasive and take only a few minutes. And we’ll never do anything that would cause you to lose trust in our services. We aim to keep your tests and results completely confidential and away from your permanent medical record (we 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.
Like much of Memphis, you’re probably feeling like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done.

We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option in all of Memphis.
We understand that this can be a lot to comprehend all at once. We also know that every Tennesseean’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.
