Confidential, Discreet and Affordable STD Testing Services at AFC Urgent Care Beverly
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can affect anyone and we believe that there is neither shame nor stigma in getting medical help when you need it the most. Your health and physical well being should never be a cause for anxiety or stress in your life. That is why testing at AFC Urgent Care Beverly MA is not only highly confidential but also fast and affordable.
We know from experience that there is no bad day or time to get tested and the outcomes of testing are often not as bad as people imagine. Testing positive can often lead to the early detection of easily treatable conditions and testing negative eliminates anxiety and stress caused by worrying about one’s health. But ignoring your health is certainly never a good option.
Our clinic operates on a walk-in basis and you can simply come in any time we are open without prior appointments. You’ll be able to discuss your healthcare concerns confidentially, and without any judgment, with one of our board-certified physicians.
STDs can be a topic that patients have a hard time discussing and we have collected a number of frequently asked questions by our patients here for your benefit. If you have a question not answered here you can always call us at 978-922-2171 or simply walk-in without an appointment.
What are the symptoms of common STDs? Which STD tests will I need?
The symptoms can vary greatly and at times there could be no symptoms at all present. Instead of searching online for symptoms and causing additional stress and anxiety, we recommend that you consult one of our qualified physicians to discuss your symptoms (if any). One of our board-certified doctors with years of experience will recommend the most appropriate tests to make an accurate diagnosis.
Even if you don’t have symptoms you can discuss your case in confidence (remember we care about your health and well-being more than anything else) and our physicians, who are trained medical professionals, will recommend the appropriate tests to put your mind at ease.
Do Insurance Plans Cover STD Testing?
Yes, your insurance plans will cover your visit (if you have an underlying illness or symptoms). We accept most plans in Massachusetts.
What if I don’t have insurance? How much will my visit and STD testing cost?
For patients that do not have a health insurance plan, our urgent care clinic offers very affordable prices for STD testing and treatment. Physician consults at our clinic are currently $75 and you can refer to our self-pay prices for STD testing for individual/panel test prices.
Which STD Tests do you carry?
We are capable of testing for all the most common STDs and can even forward samples to partner labs for more advanced testing. We routinely perform multi-panel tests for the following STDs:
- Hepatitis B & Hepatitis C
If your situation requires additional testing or panels that we do not offer, we will collect and forward your blood work or samples to our partner labs for further testing and inform you of the results when they are received.
