Yes, walk-ins are our primary form of visits. For pregnancy tests, we ask that you arrive at least one hour before closing to be seen. STD testing is on a first-come, first-serve basis on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only. Sonograms are done by appointment only and are scheduled at your first initial visit.
It is best to have a home test verified by a clinical test. Our pregnancy tests are lab quality, similar to what you’d find in a doctor’s office. (Note: we provide urine tests only and do not offer blood tests for pregnancy). If your test is positive, we can talk about scheduling an ultrasound to determine if the pregnancy is viable and how far along you are. After the sonogram, you will have the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your pregnancy.
Most all services, including STD tests, pregnancy tests, limited ultrasound, parenting classes, and material support, are free. Our counseling services are available for the low cost of $20 for your initial appointment and $10 for each session after that. If this cost is an issue, please contact our office at 316-945-9400.
If you are considering an abortion, Embrace offers free and confidential pregnancy testing and ultrasounds to determine if your pregnancy is viable. A non-viable pregnancy will end in a natural miscarriage, meaning you won’t need an abortion. Through the ultrasound, we can also learn how far along you are which is a necessary step in deciding the best options for your future.
Whether it be a friend, family member, or father-of-the-baby, we understand the need for moral support. For your privacy we will meet with you individually at first and then invite your friend back later when you’re comfortable.
You will need a driver’s license or some other form of ID that we will copy for our personal records. Your privacy is important to us and we do not share any information without your permission.
Our tests are accurate within 7-10 days after conception. Conception generally occurs approximately 14 days after your period starts. Therefore we suggest you wait until you’ve missed your period before coming in for a test.
Your confidentiality is a priority at Embrace. We never give out personal information without your consent.
To allow for the best care, we suggest you plan to be here for 45-60 minutes.
The limited ultrasounds we provide are intended to confirm a pregnancy after a positive pregnancy test, not find out the baby’s sex. We encourage you to find a doctor in the area to follow-up on the rest of your medical care.

STD Testing at Embrace is by walk-ins ONLY on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays starting at 10 AM. The time slots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis so the earlier you arrive, the better your likelihood of being seen. We advise you plan a flexible day as your actual appointment time may be for later in the day after you come in the morning and fill out paperwork. For questions or to find out if there are any openings left for the day, call 316-945-9400.
We test for Herpes & Genital Warts (Visual exam only); Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, HIV & Syphilis.

If you have engaged in sexual activity, you have been exposed to the possibility of a STD.
In the practice of good health care, we need to know and perform a full assessment before we can prescribe medication. This process takes about 1-2 weeks and includes a follow-up appointment with a physician.
Medication will only be given to an individual following their personal assessment with the physician. It’s best for your partner to come in for their own exam in order to provide the best care for their individual needs.
