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 Houston Residents Get Tested?
According to a recent announcement by the Texas STD Surveillance Report, Harris County has the highest number of sexually transmitted disease cases in the state of Texas. The report cites more than 20,000 cases of chlamydia, 8,000 cases of gonorrhea, and 2,800 cases of syphilis. And in terms of HIV diagnoses, the state of Texas ranks third across the United States with more than 4,400 cases reported. With statistics like these, we cannot stress to Houston residents how important it is to practice safe sex and get the proper tests when necessary.
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 Houston Can I Get Tested?
We have more than 4,000 testing sites across the country, including 21 in Houston alone. Our facilities are open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm on weekdays from 7:00 am to noon 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 Houston testing facilities, we go out of our way to give our patients an inviting and non-threatening setting. You won’t be stuck in long lines or overcrowded waiting rooms waiting on us. Our procedures are non-invasive and fast. And we’ll never do anything to compromise your privacy or 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.
Like much of Houston, you’re probably feeling like there aren’t enough hours 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 Houston area. We produce comprehensive and accurate results and you simply won’t find a better option.
We know this can be a lot to take on. We also understand that every Houston resident’s situation is different. It would be near impossible to cover everyone’s bases in just a few short sentences, so it’s perfectly fine to ask questions when it comes to your sexual health and personal well-being. For this reason, 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 Houston, TX
Same Day Testing
You won’t be required to clear your schedule for us. At Priority STD Testing, we offer same day testing and the entire process, start to finish, is easy and convenient. The testing procedure only takes a few minutes, and patients are normally in and out of the facility in less than a half hour. And your personal and private information remains secure and discreet throughout the entire process.
Every step of the Priority STD Testing process is 100% discreet and confidential. We’ll never call you directly without your consent and neither our name, nor anything pertaining to the services we offer, will ever show up on a bank or credit card statement. Additionally, as we work completely independent of insurance companies, no services or correspondence will ever be shown to your healthcare provider.
Public clinics or health divisions supplying free STD testing offer little personal privacy when it concerns your sexual health. Going to your doctor can be humiliating and even raise questions as to the reason for your visit by others. Our discreet 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 regular blood and urine sample.
Fast and Accurate Results
We make every effort to provide you quick and 100% accurate test results. Samples are expedited as rush orders and patients typically obtain their results in just 24-72 hours. In addition, you can be certain that all Priority STD Testing services are approved by the FDA and carried out in CLIA certified laboratories. Once the process is complete, you’ll have the ability to access your results on-line 24 hours a day with an encrypted and secure system. And our care counselors are standing by should you have any inquiries along the way.
Our care counselors are available to go over treatment choices for patients who test positive for gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomoniasis. We’ll work with you to set up a phone consult with one of our physicians to authorize the right treatment. Office visits are not necessary. Appropriate medications are readily available, in many cases, the same day and can be picked up at your local pharmacy.
It is very important to understand which tests are right for your situation. In a lot of cases, only a few are administered at your local public clinic or doctor’s office. Priority STD Testing provides a wide range of testing options for several 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 about the different testing options.
Can I switch STD testing sites?
Yes! Your lab order can be used at either Alexandria testing center, or at any Priority STD Testing center throughout Virginia. If you need to get tested in a different state after you’ve already placed an order, simply contact a care counselor.
How do I get my test results?
Your test results are accessible through a secure login unique to your order, updated 24 hours a day including partial results. Once your final results are available, you’ll be notified by email discreetly. Test results are expedited as a rush order and typically process just 24-72 hours after visiting the collection facility. If you have questions about your results or require a treatment consult, our care counselors are just a phone call away. Nothing will ever be sent to your home or healthcare provider to respect your privacy.
Are my results confidential?
Our process is 100% confidential and HIPAA compliant. Your lab order and results will never be disclosed to your healthcare provider or personal doctor. All personally identifiable information is kept secure and encrypted while ordering your test and getting your results online or by phone. We are in compliance with all state and federal regulations governing the reporting of positive test results to ensure you are not contacted in the event of a reactive test.
Do you offer treatment?
We offer treatment options for patients who test positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis. If you receive a positive result, simply call and speak with a care counselor to schedule a phone consult with a physician. Medication can be called into your local pharmacy, and no office visit is needed. We are partnered with physicians at PWNHealth so treatment can be prescribed if appropriate in all states. You must have a positive result before treatment can be authorized. The physician consult fee is $65.
