Statcare Urgent Care

STD Testing & Screening

The purpose of STD Screening is so that you can be sure that you are NOT at risk of STD.  Unfortunately, there are online sites that advertise STD Test packages that may not be the best for you.  They aren't even legitimate businesses in many cases. Please read the discussion below.  Statcare offers Reliable STD Testing in a discreet setting of an Urgent Care. You can get screened, tested and treated for any STD at any of our locations.

 

 

 

At Statcare Urgent Care, we perform STD testing for anyone who needs to be screened for a sexually transmitted disease (also known as sexually transmitted infection, or STI). If you are sexually active – especially if you have sex with multiple partners – you or your partner should wear a condom and be screened frequently.

 

Statcare's comprehensive STD testing includes screening for the most common viral and  bacterial STD's in the United States and includes testing you for HIV Types 1&2, Herpes 1&2, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis C, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Chlamydia and Syphilis. Statcare's STD testing is designed to provide you with complete peace of mind.

 

 

Why choose Statcare for your STD Tests?

1. Statcare's STD testing uses the best tests with the most reliability and not the cheapest one available out there

2. Fast & Results you can access over your phone through Statcare's patient portal

3. Peace of mind that you had test results you can trust

4.  Statcare has medical expertise you can count on

5.  Statcare offers its own locations where you can come in and get secure and confidential STD testing

6.  At Statcare, you can count on getting counseling and treatment if you have questions or your results come back positive.

 

 

What about online websites that offer STD Testing?

Be very careful.  Do your homework.  Online companies offer tests that are more likely to be the cheaper ones, not necessarily the best ones.  For each STD, there are many lab tests available.  Each test has a different sensitivity, specificity and reliability.  Online websites are in the business of selling STD Testing packages for cash or credit card payments.

 

10 signs you're dealing with a website, NOT a real business.

Beware of online companies that offer STD Screening.  Do your research.  Look out for the following 10 signs for a scam:
1.  It is just a web-site, not a real licensed business in the State of NY, let alone have a listing with the NYS DOH website or be certified as a laboratory in NYS.  They will claim to have several thousand locations nationwide; yet have none licensed in NY with the same business name as their website!
2.  They ask you to search by zip code so they can refer you to some ordinary lab for a commission
3.  They feed on search words "std check", "express testing" "confidential testing" or "priority testing"
4.  They ask you to pay for a package price first.
5.  When you search the address they are showing, a local lab comes up!
6.  When you look for actual reviews by real patients from the community, there are no reviews on Google for that local business listing.
7.  Their business page on Bing or Google has the search word as their business name instead of the actual lab name.  Example "Confidential" or "Priority" or "Rapid" or "Plush"
8.  Once they have sent your order to the local lab, they are most likely off the hook for the quality of the test in the package you picked! They made their commission by providing you the cheapest STD Testing alternative, not the best or the most reliable.
9.  A search on the NYS Dept. of Health website comes up with no such business listing as is suggested by the name provided on the website.

10.  They have no Office bearers, management team or a local NYS address as their business address.

STD Tests and STD Screening FAQs


What are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease?

Many times, STDs do not cause any symptoms. You can have a sexually transmitted infection and never even know it. That’s how STDs are spread – by people who are infected but don’t know it.

If you do have symptoms, they may include: sores on the genitals, discharge from the penis or vagina, itching, and burning during urination.

Doesn’t my doctor test for STDs during a routine exam and blood work?

In most cases, no. You typically have to ask for it. And women should not assume STD testing is included in a pelvic exam or Pap smear. If you think you might have an STD or you have sex with multiple partners, request it from your doctor or come to Statcare for confidential STD screening in Hicksville, Astoria, Brooklyn, or the Bronx, New York.

Who needs to be tested for STDs and how often?

It depends on your age, your sexual behaviors, and other risk factors. In general, it is a good idea to get screened annually if:

  • You are sexually active and under age 25 
  • You’re over 25 and having sex with a new partner or multiple partners 
  • You're a man who has sex with men

How is STD testing done?

It is different for each sexually transmitted infection. You cannot test for them all with one test. At Statcare, your STD screening may include:

  • A physical exam of your genitals and/or your anus. Visible signs of an infection may include a rash, discharge, sores, or warts. If an STD is detected during a physical exam, you can start treatment (usually prescription oral or topical medications) right away. 
  • Collecting a sample of blood, urine, discharge, tissue, cells, or saliva that will be sent to a lab for analysis

If I’m under 18 years old, do I need permission from my parents for STD screening?

No you do not. In New York, parental permission is not needed for STD testing and your results remain private. You can come in to Statcare 7 days a week, 365 days a year to get screened.

What is chlamydia?

With over 1 million cases reported each year, chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the US. It is a bacterial infection of the genitals, anus, or throat that most often affects females between ages 15 to 24.

There are often no symptoms, but they may include a yellow-green vaginal discharge in women, and/or a burning pain during urination for men and women. Men may also have burning or itching around the opening of the penis. Chlamydia can be cured by oral antibiotics.

What is gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection of the genitals, anus, or throat that affects approximately 700,000 people in the US each year – usually females 15 to 24 years old and males 20 to 24 years old.

There are often no symptoms, but they may include a yellow-green discharge from the vagina or penis, and/or a burning pain during urination. Females may also notice abnormal vaginal bleeding and/or pelvic pain, while males may also have painful or swollen testicles. Gonorrhea can be cured by oral antibiotics.

What is genital herpes?

Herpes is a viral infection of the genitals, mouth, and lips. About 1 in 6 people in the US are infected with it. There are 2 types of herpes: type 1, which typically causes cold sores around the mouth, and type 2, which causes sores and blisters in the genital areas.

There is no cure for herpes – the virus lies dormant in the body and may cause recurrent outbreaks. However, there are medications available to help treat symptoms, reduce the frequency of outbreaks, and reduce the likelihood of spreading it to sex partners.

What is HPV (genital warts)?

HPV, or human papillomavirus, is a viral infection of the genitals, anus, or throat. It affects approximately 20 million people and an estimated 6 million new cases occur each year.

There are often no symptoms, but they may include warts in the genital areas. Some types of HPV can cause cervical cancer in women. There is no cure for HPV – the virus lies dormant in the body and may cause recurrent outbreaks.
