HIV/AIDS Testing

  • HIV antibody testing.  This service includes counseling (risk assessment, risk reduction discussion and referrals) and is performed by a certified HIV counselor.  Most counseling sessions take 20-30 minutes. With rapid testing, results are available in 20 minutes. With conventional testing, results take one week.  Testing is confidential, NOT anonymous. 

    In addition to getting tested during one of our HIV testing walk-in clinics, we also offer HIV testing during an appointment for an exam and other tests for sexually transmitted infections.

HIV/AIDS Community Education and Prevention Program

  • Provides education and outreach in the community
