Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) is an important part of routine health care, especially for patients under the age of 25. At CHCB, tests for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and HIV can be performed without drawing blood. Certain STI tests are available in-house, with a rapid turn-around for results. Anonymous HIV testing is available by appointment.
Patients are encouraged to speak to their providers to learn more about the importance of STI screening, risk factors, and cost-saving opportunities for patients with a deductible or who are uninsured. If you are interested in or have questions about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to reduce HIV transmission, please let your provider know. We’re happy to have these conversations!
