At Nao Medical, we understand that sexual health is an important part of overall wellness. That’s why we offer comprehensive STI testing services in Jackson Heights, NY 11372, and accept WellCare insurance to make it more accessible for our patients.
Why Get Tested?
- Many STIs have no symptoms, so you may not even know you have one.
- Untreated STIs can lead to serious health problems, such as infertility, cancer, and even death.
- Getting tested is the only way to know for sure if you have an STI.
What STIs Do We Test For?
At Nao Medical, we offer testing for a wide range of STIs, including:
- Hepatitis B and C
How Does Testing Work?
Testing for STIs is quick, easy, and confidential. We offer same-day appointments and minimal wait times, so you can get in and out quickly. Our staff is empathetic and non-judgmental, so you can feel comfortable discussing any concerns you may have.
We offer both urine and blood tests, depending on the STI being tested for. Some tests may require a physical exam or swab of the affected area.
What Happens If I Test Positive?
If you test positive for an STI, our healthcare providers will work with you to develop a treatment plan. Many STIs can be cured with antibiotics, while others can be managed with medication and lifestyle changes.
We also offer counseling and support services to help you navigate the emotional aspects of a positive diagnosis.
