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 Austin TX Residents Get Tested?
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention1, the overall rate of STIs in Travis County has increased by 34% from 2014 to 2018 with significant increases in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and congenital syphilis. And in terms of HIV diagnoses, the state of Texas ranks third across the United States with more than 4,400 cases reported. Overall, Austin county has the fourth highest number of STD-related infections in the state of Texas according to a recent report by the Texas Department of Public Health2. With statistics like these, we cannot stress to Austin residents how important it is to practice safe sex and get the proper tests when necessary.
How Much Will It Cost?

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).

You won’t be singled out for any reason or openly associated in any way with the reason for your visit.

For patients testing positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, our care counselors are standing by to talk about next steps. We’ll begin by working with you to establish a phone consult between you and one of our doctors. No office visits are required. Medication is, in many cases, available the same day and can be easily picked up at your pharmacy of choice.
Knowing which tests are right for your circumstance is crucial. Often times, not all diseases are tested for when you visit your doctor or a public clinic. We provide a variety of testing options for numerous diseases such as HIV, oral herpes (HSV1), genital herpes (HSV2), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and trichomoniasis.
