Our specialists offer diagnostic testing and treatment for a variety of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including: 

If you're experiencing the following symptoms, you should contact your doctor to schedule testing.

  • Burning while using the bathroom
  • Discharge
  • Itching

Some people have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. That is why it is important to be tested even if you do not have any symptoms, but think you have been exposed to an STD.
