At AFC Urgent Care Edgewater, if your doctor believes that you need laboratory testing, you will not need to be sent out to a private laboratory for the collection and then have to wait for a phone call or second appointment to get your results. We strive to provide you with the best medical care available, including a comprehensive, on-site laboratory.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are estimated to affect 19 million people each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Of these infections, approximately half are among young people ages 15-24 years. Although most often transmitted through sexual activity, they can also be passed through IV needles and/or skin-to-skin contact with an infected area.
Often times, sexually transmitted diseases have no symptoms and, therefore, they go undiagnosed and untreated. Failure to treat an STD can lead to severe health consequences. The only way to know for sure is to be tested.
AFC Urgent Care Edgewater can test for and treat a variety of sexually transmitted diseases. We offer an environment that values your privacy and offer testing and treatment in a safe, confidential setting. Our experienced physicians and medical staff understand the importance of privacy and sensitivity when it comes to STD testing and results.
No appointments are necessary for STD testing services. We offer affordable self-pay and insurance payments accepted.
