Have I Been Exposed To An STD?
Engaging in any sexual activity (oral, anal, vaginal intercourse, or genital touching) exposes you to the possibility of an STD. The only way to know if you have an STD is to get tested.
It is always best for your body and health to be treated for an STD as soon as possible. The CDC advises you get tested at least once a year.
Do I Have To Have Symptoms To Be Tested?
No. It is possible to contract and give an STD without knowing you have one. If an STD is allowed to continue without treatment, more serious complications can result.
Some STDs can cause a discharge, burning with urination, or genital sores. Other STDs have less obvious symptoms.
STD Clinic Hours
We offer Free STD Testing for both men and women on a walk-in basis Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday ONLY, starting at 10 AM. The time slots fill up on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the earlier you arrive, the better your likelihood of being seen.
We advise you to plan a flexible day, as your actual appointment time may be later 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.

How Long Does It Take To Get My Results Back?

Can I Get Treatment For My Partner If I’m Positive?
We can only give medication to individuals following their assessment with the physician. Your partner should come in for their exam to provide the best care for their individual needs.
