Do you take walk-ins or do I need to make an appointment?

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 Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays only. Sonograms are done by appointment only and are scheduled at your first initial visit.

I already took a home test that was positive, do I still need to come in and get tested?

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.

How much does everything cost?

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.

Do you perform abortions?

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.

Can I bring a friend in with me?

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.

What do I need to bring before my visit?

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.

Will you call my parents?

Your confidentiality is a priority at Embrace. We never give out personal information without your consent.

How long will my appointment be?

To allow for the best care, we suggest you plan to be here for 45-60 minutes.

Can I Make An Appointment?

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.

What kind of STD testing do you do?

We test for Herpes & Genital Warts (Visual exam only); Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, HIV & Syphilis.

How long does it take to get my results back?

Test results return in 1-2 weeks depending on which test performed.

What if the results are positive?

You will receive the treatment needed by medication in the office, by prescription or referral.

Can I get my results over the phone?

Due to COVID, all results are now being given over the phone 1-2 weeks after your first appointment. Staff will contact you with the results and prescriptions for treatment if necessary.

How do I know if I have been exposed to an STD?

If you have engaged in sexual activity, you have been exposed to the possibility of a STD.

Can I get my medicine today?

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.

Can I get medicine for my partner if I’m positive?

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.
