Friendly Staff

I had occasion to see Dr. Amy Parker twice in the last couple of weeks, and have nothing but good things to say. She was thorough, sent me for the correct tests to make a diagnosis, referred me to an excellent specialist and made follow up calls to see how I was doing. The whole staff was professional and attentive.

We are from suburban Philadelphia and were visiting our son and his family when my husband’s “cold” became markedly worse. The nurse Megan and the Nurse Practitioner Donna were wonderful to us. They quickly assessed my husband’s conditon, had a chest xray done, and prescribed the appropriate medicine and care for what turned out to be pneumonia. The entire visit to this facility was favorable, from the ease of check-in to the friendliness of the xray tech. Although no one likes being sick “on vacation”, this was a good experience for us.

South Portland Chlamydia Testing

Who should get tested for chlamydia?

According to the CDC, anyone who is sexually active can get chlamydia, but the infection is more common in certain groups. These include women under 25 and men who have sex with men. It's also recommended for those who have multiple or new sex partners, and those who do not consistently use a condom during sex with partners whose STD status is unknown.

Importance of getting tested

Chlamydia is often asymptomatic, meaning it can exist without showing any signs or symptoms. This makes regular testing crucial, especially for those in high-risk groups. If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to serious health problems like pelvic inflammatory disease in women and epididymitis in men, both of which can cause infertility. Regular testing allows for early detection and treatment, preventing these serious complications.
