    Beat Seasonal Allergies With These Urgent Care Tips

    Fight Seasonal Allergic Reactions With These Urgent Care Tips

    Find out how to get relief from allergic reactions.

    Spring allergy season is in full bloom, which means that allergen levels are through the roof right now. Pollen levels peak in the northeast part of the U.S. during April and May. If you are allergic to grass pollen, things will only get worse as the weeks go on. That means that your allergy symptoms — the itchy eyes, sneezing, and sniffling could stick around for months

    If you suffer from a runny nose, itchy eyes and other hay seasonal allergy symptoms, you are not alone. More than 50 million Americans have allergies. Unfortunately, for the millions of allergy sufferers, springtime is the worst time of the year for allergic reactions.

    Before you start any treatment, visit an urgent care center like Statcare to be sure that allergies are causing your troubles. Many other illnesses share the same symptoms as allergies. So, you really need to be sure that your symptoms are due to an allergic reaction so that you can get the appropriate treatment. Save a trip to the emergency room! Statcare has multiple urgent care locations and is open 7 days a week.

    If you have seasonal allergies, make sure you seek treatment, as hay fever can trigger other common allergic reactions, such as:

    •   Asthma – Seasonal allergies can exacerbate asthma symptoms. Exposure to pollen can trigger deadly asthma attacks. In fact, a British teen died after suffering an asthma attack. His parents said that an allergic reaction to pollen was partially to blame for the asthma attack.
    •   Eczema/Atopic dermatitis – Hay fever is a common cause of this skin condition. Pollen is a known trigger for eczema.
    •   SinusitisHay fever can cause prolonged nasal congestion, which can cause sinusitis, an infection of the membrane that lines the sinuses.
    •   Hives. This allergic skin rash can stem from various allergens.
    •   Conjunctivitis. Allergic reactions can cause eye inflammation, and itchy, watery eyes. Allergic conjunctivitis cases often increase during hay fever season.

    Signs Of An Allergic Reaction

    Here are some of the signs of seasonal allergies. Get medical care right away if you are experiencing these symptoms.

    •  Watery, itchy eyes
    •  Runny nose
    •  Sneezing
    •   Sore throat
    •  Coughing
    •  Fatigue
    •  Dark circles under the eyes

    Allergy Do’s

    •   Visit an urgent care center like Statcare. If you have any of the above symptoms, come in for an allergy test. Most insurance plans cover blood work for seasonal allergies.
    •   Use air conditioning. Although spring might seem like a great time to open the windows, resist the temptation to do so. Using the air conditioning will help keep allergens out of your home.
    •   Stay inside when pollen levels are high. Check out the New York pollen forecast and avoid outdoor activities when the pollen counts are high.

    Allergy Don’ts

    •   Ignore the symptoms. Allergy symptoms can be more than a nuisance  — they can be deadly. Exposure to pollen can cause severe allergic and asthma reactions. Therefore, never ignore these symptoms.
    •   Automatically reach for over-the-counter remedies. Although there are plenty of OTC allergy medications available, visit Statcare before taking these medications to make sure that seasonal allergies are to blame for your symptoms. Also, a doctor can help you select the best treatment for your particular symptoms. There are many options and not all of them are right for everyone.

    How To Talk To Your Partner About STDs
    How To Talk To Your Partner About STDs 1024 683 Sandeep Jain, MD

    How To Talk To Your Partner About STDs

    It’s the talk that no one wants to have — the one about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Although it isn’t easy, STDs should be the topic of your next conversation. There are many myths surrounding STDs, such as you have to sleep with lots of people to get an STD. This is simply not true. These myths can cause you to not get tested. However, learning about your partner’s sexual history and getting tested are ways to keep your body healthy.

    STD’s are more common than you think, which is why it is very important to talk about them. Data from the New York State’s Department of Health for 2017 indicate that the rates of gonorrhea and chlamydia are increasing in New York. STD’s are especially high among millennials. More than 50 percent of STD’s occur in people younger than 26. Surprisingly, you don’t even have to have sex with a partner to get an STD. As a matter of fact, you can get an STD through skin-to-skin genital contact.  Here are some tips to help you bring up STDs with your partner.

    #1 Educate Yourself

    First, read up on STD’s to make sure you have the facts. Learning about STD’s will help you avoid common myths and misconceptions that could derail your conversation. Make sure you view information from reliable websites like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    #2 Choose The Right Setting

    Pick the right place to have the talk. Don’t bring up the conversation in the middle of dinner at your favorite restaurant. Choose a quiet, calm setting where there will not be any interruptions.

    #3 Pick The Right Time

    The earlier that you have the talk in your relationship, the better. Don’t wait until you are in bed about to have sex to bring up the topic. Likewise, this is not something that you want to wait until after the condom breaks to discuss — by then it’s way too late. So, have the conversation early. That way, you and your partner will have time to process the information. Then, make an appointment together for STD testing.

    # 4 Be Honest

    Honesty should be something that you strive for in any relationship. It is the building block for a healthy partnership. So, be honest about how many partners you have been with and your sexual health. Don’t hide things from your partner. It will only cause problems later. If you have had an STD in the past, tell your partner. Being honest about your own history can help your partner feel comfortable sharing things with you, as well.

    #5 Get Tested Together

    Most STD’s are curable. Treatment can help manage or minimize the symptoms of those STDs that are incurable. Going with your partner to get STD testing can help make the process a little easier. Having the support and encouragement of your significant other can help reduce some of the pressure.

    Are you ready to get tested? Get STD results fast with testing. Schedule an appointment for your STD testing in New York today.

    STD Testing: How to Prepare for Your Next Visit 1000 667 Sandeep jain

    STD Testing: How to Prepare for Your Next Visit

    STD testing is imperative for sexually active people. With STD diagnosis on the rise across America, your sexual health depends on a rigorous STD testing schedule. Those who have never taken an STD test may feel overwhelmed by the process or unsure of what happens during the appointment. Don’t worry, this is a normal feeling.

    At Statcare, it’s our job to help you understand each of our services in depth, including STD testing. We want you to feel comfortable as soon as you walk through our doors. You can trust that at each Statcare location, you can ask all the questions you want and you’re guaranteed to get an accurate, complete answer about your health.

    If you’re still a little nervous and want to learn more about the STD testing process before your first test, we understand. Here is what you need to know about STD testing and how best to prepare for your next visit. 

    The Process of STD Testing

    The process of STD testing varies based on the quality of care you’ve chosen. Some services, often online companies, advertise quick, safe STD testing taken by mail. They’ll send you a kit, ask you to take a swab and send the whole thing back to them to get answers on your status. As you can imagine, that is neither safe nor an accurate process. Your kit could be lost in the mail system or opened by an unauthorized person. The number of ways a mailed STD testing kit can go wrong far exceed the number of ways it’s convenient for people.

    On the other hand, Statcare is safe, convenient and completely accurate. Our tests are done right at our locations, and when it’s time to understand the results of your STD testing, your doctor will sit with you as long as you need to answer all of your questions. We can help you understand your treatment options, how to tell your partner that you’ve tested positive, and ways to talk about your status with future partners. We offer a level of expert care and patient treatment that you won’t find other places, especially not with a kit done through the mail.

    When you arrive at Statcare, your doctor will ask you a few questions, they’ll confirm the STDs you want to be tested for, and then they’ll do the tests. Not all STD testing is completed in the same way. For some tests, your doctor will have to draw blood. Other tests involve swabbing, either of your mouth or genital region. Be sure to talk to your doctor beforehand about the specific tests you want administered so they know to come prepared to answer all of your questions. One test cannot give you a diagnosis on all STDs, so it’s very important to specify your testing requests.

    Questions to Prepare For

    As we mentioned, there will be a few questions to answer before your doctor starts STD testing. These questions are meant to help the doctor understand your medical history and how best to help you, should you test positive for any STDs. The kinds of questions your doctor will ask you may feel invasive, so it’s best to prepare yourself before your appointment. Know that your doctor isn’t trying to pry or make judgements about your sexual history. All they want to know is how to help you and discover any STDs you might be at risk for.

    The kinds of questions your doctor might ask during STD testing include:

    • How many sexual partners have you had?
    • When was the last time you got tested for STDs?
    • What type of sex do you engage in?
    • Do you regularly wear protection?
    • What kind of birth control do you use?

    Of course, your doctor might ask additional questions, or different questions, but these are the kinds of questions you need to be prepared to answer. Be as honest as possible with your doctor — it could be the difference between a treatment plan that works and one that doesn’t manage any of your symptoms. I

    Documents to Bring

    You don’t have to bring any specific documents with you to your STD testing appointment. Outside of your insurance card, most of the information we need to do successful STD testing can be found through the questions we’ll ask you. However, if you have a note from another doctor, or some kind of documentation that explains any pre-existing health concerns, please bring those to Statcare with you. We can’t guarantee that we’ll need them, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

    Understanding Your Risks for STDs

    One of the most common questions we get asked is when should you set an appointment for STD testing. The answer varies person to person. For example, if you’ve only had one sexual partner since your last STD test and that person tested clean before you both engaged in sexual acts, it’s most likely rare that you contracted any STDs since then. But if you’ve been with a few partners since your last STD testing appointment, there are a number of STDs you might be at risk for contracting. It’s a good idea to set up an STD testing appointment immediately just to know you’re safe and healthy.

    Studies show that only 12% of young people get tested for STDs, despite the prevalence of STDs being at an all-time high. Make sure to prioritize your own health and happiness by getting regular STD testing done. One appointment can be the difference between a healthy body and one that suffers a variety of symptoms for months.

    Follow Up Treatment

    If you test positive for an STD, your doctor will talk through treatment plans for you. Certain STDs, like herpes and HIV, don’t have proper cures, but there are ways to manage the symptoms so that you can live a normal life.

    Other STDs, like gonorrhea, have become resistant to treatments, so you’ll need the expert advice from your doctor to figure out the best treatment plan for you. It’s this sort of advice that you won’t get with an inexpensive, incomplete STD testing kit that comes in the mail.

    Remember that a positive test isn’t the end of the world. It may feel discouraging and maybe even devastating in the moment, but your Statcare doctor will have answers and steps to take so that you can live as normal a life as possible with your new status.

    After Your First STD Testing Appointment

    Once you’re done with your first STD testing appointment, it’s time to schedule the next one. Although STD testing is not like a physical where you need to get tested every year, it is important to get tested regularly. You’ll want to schedule an STD testing appointment before you engage in sexual activity with a new person and after your partner engages in sexual activity with a new person. If this sounds overly cautious, it’s because we want you to be healthy for as long as possible. Knowing your status is a key element to a healthy life. And once you finish your first STD testing experience, it gets much easier. You may even to look forward to getting a clean bill of health rather than dreading the appointment entirely.

    If you’re ready to set up your first STD testing appointment come into your local Statcare. We’re open for extended hours every day, including holidays. Start the New Year knowing your status and get tested for STDs today.

    Have I Been Tested for That? A Checklist for STD Testing 1000 668 Sandeep jain

    Have I Been Tested for That? A Checklist for STD Testing

    Depending on where you go, your first STD testing experience can be super awkward. You may not know what questions to ask, if you’re allowed to ask questions, or what any of your doctor’s answers mean. At Statcare, that’s not the kind of care we believe in. We want all of our patients to walk away feeling heard and comforted during their appointments— especially with the STD testing process.

    Whether you’ve already received your test results but still feel confused, or you want to be prepared for your next STD testing appointment, we’ve got answers for you. Find out what most people wanted to ask during their doctor’s visit but didn’t, as well as other helpful information they wish they’d had about the testing experience.

    How Long Are STD Testing Results Good For?

    Realistically, your STD testing results are only accurate up until you engage with a new sexual partner. This also applies if you sleep with a previous partner who has slept with a new partner since your last test. Each new partner you introduce into your sex life can affect your sexual status.

    This isn’t meant to scare you, but with “steep and sustained” increases in STDs lately, it’s important to know how easily the status of your sexual health can change. The more you know, the better you’ll be able to keep yourself safe and healthy.

    Did I Get Tested for Every STD?

    The short answer is probably not. If you’re being seen for a regular physical, your doctor will most likely not order any STD testing. If you make an appointment specifically for STD testing, it’s likely that your doctor will order blood tests for common STDs, but not everything. For example, your doctor will most likely not test for herpes unless you specifically ask to be tested for them. Also, if your doctor isn’t familiar with the various tests for herpes, a test may get ordered that is not useful for detecting new infections at all. Getting the right test for the STD can be a challenge but the more you know, the better you will be able to negotiate this maze.

    Be your own biggest advocate during STD testing so that you get the most comprehensive and accurate results. Ask your doctor what they’re testing you for and why. If you have a concern that they’re not addressing, tell them you want additional testing. And be specific. Especially whether your concern is a new infection or a pre-existing one. The only way you’re going to get clear answers is if you ask for them.

    When Should I Get Tested Again for STDs?

    As we mentioned before, you can assume your results are accurate and up-to-date as long as you haven’t engaged with any new partners and your partners haven’t engaged with anyone new before sleeping with you. If both of those are true, you most likely don’t have to worry about coming in for new STD testing.

    There are some exceptions to remember, though. For example, if you think you’ve come into contact with gonorrhea, get tested within 1 to 5 days. Similarly, if you think you’ve been exposed to chlamydia, visit an STD testing center between 2-6 days. With both chlamydia and gonorrhea, you should plan to get retested two weeks after your first test to be sure of your results. It can take up to two weeks after exposure for both to show up on an STD test.

    Then, there are some STDs (example HIV, Hepatitis C) where your initial tests may be negative but you are still required to have repeat testing done after a couple of months.  Only when the second set of STD test results come back as being negative that it can be confidently determined that you are no longer at risk for that disease anymore.

    What Are the Most Common STDs Doctors Test For?

    Most often, your doctor will test for syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. They will test for anything additional that you request, but it’s up to you to ask. Don’t assume that your doctor is going to test for every STD, especially if you’re not at a center that does regular STD testing. A simple example is HPV Testing in men. HPV in men is quite common, yet testing for HPV is not on most doctors lists of STDs to test patients for.

    Can a Regular Blood Test Cover STD Testing?


    No. Your blood tests will only show results for the things your doctor requests. Typically, regular blood tests check how your organs are doing such as your liver or your kidney. Don’t rely on regular labs to tell you whether or not you have an STD. STDs are specific diseases and one has to get special tests to detect these infections. Take the time to visit a certified STD testing center, like Statcare, to get proper testing and reliable and accurate results. Plus, walking into a regular urgent care facility helps alleviate any embarrassment you might feel by visiting a center that only tests for STDs and pregnancy.

    Why Won’t Doctors Test for Everything During STD Testing?

    Not all doctors are trained or qualified to do extensive STD testing. Whether they lack the experience or the equipment, many doctors are limited by their resources when it comes to administering STD testing.

    Additionally, mail-in STD testing kits taken at home can be particularly unreliable for patients. The best option you have to get comprehensive results is to visit a Statcare location, where our doctors are able to screen for any STD using blood tests, urine tests, and swab tests.

    What If I Don’t Understand My Results?

    It’s important to ask as many questions as you have about your results and don’t worry about the time it takes. If this isn’t the direction that your doctor gives you when you go in for STD testing, use a different doctor. This is your health and you need to be able to fully understand it. At Statcare, our doctors are trained to give our patients thorough, helpful answers. We don’t want you to walk out of our locations feeling like your questions have been unanswered.

    Will My Doctor Share My STD Testing Results?

    At Statcare, STD testing is completely confidential. Your test results are for your eyes only. Of course, if you’d like to bring a friend or your partner with you for support, they are welcome. But we won’t share anything without your permission.

    At Statcare, all our patients are sent email instructions on how to access their STD results through the Healow App that can be downloaded from the App Store. This avoids having to call and ask strangers to look at test results that are very personal, to begin with. Statcare’s medical providers can be contacted through the Healow app if you have questions about your test results. Our doctors are available to return your requests for a call all seven days a week.

    We encourage all of our patients to share their status with their sexual partners so that everyone remains healthy and safe, but they won’t hear anything from us — even if they also choose to get STD testing at our location, too.

    Most doctors honor this same commitment to confidentiality. But with mail-in STD testing kits, you’re at a much higher risk of someone else seeing your results. If you’re worried about privacy, come down to one of our locations. There is no place more secure or helpful.

    Should I Always Get Tested for Every STD?

    The only way to ensure your health is to be tested for every STD, every time you get tested. However, we understand that it’s not always possible for everyone. Some people might not be able to afford the extra tests, or they may not want to go through the whole process every time. We get it. At minimum, you should get tested for every STD you might have been exposed to every time you come in for STD testing. That means knowing your partner’s status and keeping open communication so that you both stay safe.

    We realize you may have more questions, and we are happy to answer as many as you have. To be as prepared as possible for your next STD testing appointment, here are the top things to remember.


    • Tell your doctor exactly which STDs you’d like to be tested for, if you have a particular concern.
    • Tell your doctor if your concern is a recent exposure.
    • Plan to be tested twice if you think you’ve been exposed to gonorrhea or chlamydia — once within a few days of exposure and again two weeks later.
    • Ask your doctor all the questions you may have, including your treatment options when you get your results.
    • Talk to your partner about which STDs you may have been exposed to before your STD testing appointment.
    • Use a doctor and a testing center that you trust — your health depends on it!

    Statcare also offers a number of other services for our patients. Our urgent care locations are staffed by qualified doctors ready to administer physicals, fix broken bones, treat burns and so many more health concerns. If you’d rather take an appointment from your home, we also offer telemedicine services where doctors can diagnose, treat and write your prescription all online. See the difference Statcare can make by visiting one of our five convenient locations!

    13 Misconceptions About STD Testing 1000 667 Sandeep jain

    13 Misconceptions About STD Testing

    Participating in STD testing is necessary to ensure good sexual health. Knowing your STD status and getting the treatments you may potentially need not only keeps you healthy but also protects your partners. Despite all the health benefits of STD testing, people are often still intimidated by them and largely try to avoid getting tested.

    At Statcare, it’s our job to make STD testing quick, painless and helpful to all our visitors. We want you to approach STD testing the way you would any other routine checkup — because that’s exactly what it is. To do that, we found the most common misconceptions about STD testing and tried to debunk them one by one.

    1. STD Testing Is Embarrassing

    STDs are more common than you think. In fact, one in two sexually active people will contract an STD by age 25. That means half of the sexually active people you know have had an STD and an even larger percentage have gone through STD testing. Taking care of your physical health is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is a responsible decision and one that could mean the difference between a clean bill of health and significant illnesses.

    2. STD Testing Is Too Public

    While it is true that you have to come into a Statcare location to complete STD testing, it is a completely private and confidential process. Our doctors will never share your results (or why you even came in for a visit) with anyone. Often, our patients prefer STD testing at our locations because it is more private than a traditional STD testing center. If you do happen to run into a neighbor or a colleague while you’re here, they won’t automatically assume you’re here to treat an STD. All your results from the lab will be available on your healow app and you will get notifications the minute the STD tests are reported.

    3. STD Testing Is Painful

    STD testing shouldn’t hurt. In some cases, a simple swab on the inside of your cheek is all your doctor will need to test you for STDs. Other times, a doctor will order a lab test which does involve drawing blood, but this process isn’t typically painful. Some STDs require a Urine Test. At Statcare, STD testing is quick, mostly painless and always professional.

    4. STD Testing Always Leads to Bad News

    This misconception is just false. Although 50% of sexually active people will contract an STD by the time they turn 25, that still leaves 50% of sexually active people who haven’t yet contracted one. More importantly, though, there are ways to treat and manage almost all STDs so even if your test comes back positive, we’ll help you through your treatment options. Your Statcare doctor will prescribe the right medication to eliminate the STD or they’ll provide medication that will treat the symptoms of a chronic STD like herpes or HIV. No matter what the results of your test are, we can help you with the right treatment so you’re able to live a comfortable, healthy life.

    5. STDs Will Go Away On Their Own

    Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. All STDs require treatment of some kind else they will progress. You can only know the best treatment plan with proper STD testing and diagnosis. People can carry some of the most common STDs without seeing a single symptom. Infections like HPV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes can be present in your body for weeks (even years) before you see any symptoms. If you’re sleeping with multiple partners or want to sleep with a new partner, it’s important to get checked to know your STD status. The more you know about your body, the healthier you will be.

    6. I Can Just Wait for My Partner to Get Tested

    This is a dangerous game that too many people play. One person’s STD testing results don’t necessarily match their partners. You should always want to take responsibility for your own sexual health and take an STD test for yourself. Statcare’s tests are quick and cost-effective, so there’s no reason to not take care of yourself and become better informed about your health.

    7. STDs Aren’t That Common Anymore

    Unfortunately, this is also false. Gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia are all at record highs. Even more alarming, certain strains of gonorrhea are now resistant to treatment. With these new developments, it’s more important than ever to prioritize your physical health. That means regular STD testing and knowing the status of each of your sexual partners. It’s a single question that could save your quality of life. That seems worth it, right?

    8. STD Testing Is Too Expensive

    Statcare provides top-quality STD testing at an affordable price. Other STD testing services may be less expensive, but they won’t be as accurate as Statcare, nor will they be able to provide the kind of quality follow-up care that Statcare provides its patients. Now there are more websites than ever offering mail-in STD testing, but as a general rule, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. We encourage everyone to find a trusted doctor to administer proper STD testing at a price you can afford to ensure you are as healthy as possible.


    9. My Primary Doctor Needs to Administer My STD Test

    You aren’t required to get STD testing from your primary care doctor. You can get tested by any doctor you prefer. A majority of our patients prefer to get tested at our facilities rather than their regular doctor for the sake of privacy and expertise in this fast-changing environment. Also, your primary care doctor will not keep injections or medicines on-site to treat your STD. Statcare, on the other hand has all the medicines on-site. No matter what your reason, we will provide the best quality STD testing and treatment for the areas we serve.

    10. STD Testing Is Inaccurate Most of the Time

    If you’re taking STD tests through an online service, it is very likely that the results you’re getting are inaccurate. The companies who provide cheap, quick results rarely use accurate laboratories. The same is true of STD Kits for home testing. However, if you come into your local Statcare location, you are guaranteed to get accurate results from your doctor plus a treatment plan if necessary. The extra effort is worth it when you’re dealing with your physical and sexual health.

    11. My Primary Care Doctor Would Tell Me About Any STDs

    Some people assume that if they’ve done lab tests in the past, they’ve been tested for STDs. It’s unfortunately a totally false assumption. For lab tests, your doctor must specifically tell the lab to test for STDs in order to get accurate results. Don’t rely on a generic blood test to tell you what your STD status is. Ask for the specific STDs you’d like to be tested for, or ask your doctor for a full screen. The best thing to do, in all matters of your health, is to be proactive and tell your doctors exactly what you need. Also, Statcare sees younger patients who are sexually active and our providers see and treat STDs every day whereas Primary Care Physicians see older populations with chronic illnesses like Diabetes and High Blood Pressure and STDs may no longer be their area of expertise.

    12. As a Lesbian, I Don’t Need STD Testing

    We recommend any sexually active person get regular STD testing in order to stay informed about their health. STDs can be spread from various types of contact including toys and swapping of body fluids, not just through vaginal penetration. If you’re a member of the LGBT community and have specific questions regarding STD testing, our doctors would be more than happy to offer you any information you need.

    13. I Use Protection, I Don’t Need STD Testing

    Consistently using protection during sex is the first step in being responsible for your health and the health of others. Protection is the best way to make sure that you don’t end up in the 50% of people diagnosed with an STD. However, it’s only effective if it’s used correctly and all the time. ANd many STDs spread from skin to skin contact or contact with body fluids like saliva, If you don’t use the proper protection every time you have sex, you still need to make a habit of getting tested. It’s just the smart thing to do. Plus, with how convenient and cost-effective Statcare STD testing is, there’s hardly a reason not to.

    The main theme in every single one of these common misconceptions — the theme we want to drive home — is that STD testing is important, convenient and most of all, not something to be ashamed of. Keeping yourself and your partners are something to be proud of.

    If you’re looking for more information about the services Statcare provides beyond STD testing, check out our full list. We offer exceptional urgent care services, telemedicine and more. We’re open 365 days a year for extended hours for your convenience. Just come in and let us help you!
