Get peace of mind. Get checked.

Even if you don’t have symptoms, you could have a sexually transmitted disease (STD). So get an STD check-up. There are many options for STD testing. Some people choose to go to their doctor while others prefer to go to the STD Center.

The STD Center provides confidential STD testing and treatment. You do not need your parent’s permission to be seen or treated.


Step Up. Get Tested.

  • Appointments are not needed but there are a limited number of openings. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Bring a photo ID, if you have one, and a list of all medications that you are taking (and how much you take).
