Omg so so good!! I first went to Waikiki to a 5 star yelp review clinic it was called Doctors of Waikiki. They wanted 400.00 to see a Dr.!! I left and als I had to pay the stupid parking on top of that. So I googled and this Kakaako clinic came up. “Island urgent Care.” I called it was Veterans Day and they were OPEN!! Yay!! They took me right away and in no time I was seen by a wonderful Dr. Kauhane! He was kind, efficient, nice bed side manner and actually cares ! It also was a great price, I will be going there from now on!! Front desk Chanelle was cool and the nurse who took me in the back was gracious.

This clinic has shorter than average waiting periods

Short Wait Time

This clinic is impeccable. Dr. Stephenson is patient, kind, and understanding. He takes the time to explain things to me in a way that is easy to understand. His staff is so kind and efficient. I am able to get in and out of the clinic in the time that other clinics would have me in the waiting room. I highly recommend this little gem of a clinic!

Chlamydia Test FAQs

  • What is a chlamydia test?

    A chlamydia test is an STD test that can determine whether or not you have chlamydia. It can be done as a urine test or a swab test, according to the NIH, though the swab test is usually only done on women. A chlamydia test is available from many healthcare professionals who provide lab test services.

  • What is chlamydia testing used for?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, a chlamydia test is used to determine the presence of chlamydia bacteria in the body. Even if you don't have any symptoms, it can be used to confirm whether you have chlamydia. Chlamydia symptoms include pain when peeing and frequent urine, according to the National Institutes of Health. In women, it can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding, while in men, it can induce discharge from the penis.

  • Why do I need a chlamydia test?

    A chlamydia test can tell you if you have the STD and help you avoid spreading it to others. The National Institutes of Health recommends yearly chlamydia tests for sexually active women under the age of 25, males who have sex with men, HIV patients, and pregnant women under the age of 25. This STD test is especially advised for women over 25 who have had several sex partners and whose partners have used condoms incorrectly or inconsistently.

  • What happens during a chlamydia test?

    The chlamydia test provider will ask you to urinate into a sterile collecting cup during the urine test, according to the National Institutes of Health. The presence of chlamydia germs in your urine sample is checked by lab technicians. During a pelvic exam, a healthcare provider will use a swab or brush to capture a sample of cells, according to the National Institutes of Health. The sample is subsequently sent to a laboratory for analysis.

  • Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, lab test providers may encourage women who are having a chlamydia test to refrain from using vaginal douches or lotions for at least 24 hours before the test. Men and women may also be requested to refrain from taking antibiotics for at least 24 hours prior to the STD test.

  • How long does it take for chlamydia to show up?

    According to the University of Wisconsin, chlamydia symptoms normally appear one to three weeks following exposure to the infection. However, according to the university, 75 percent of women and 50 percent of men with chlamydia have no symptoms.
