PhysicianOne Urgent Care, Chestnut Hill - 1210 Boylston St, Chestnut Hill
I am always appreciative of the connivence this office offers.   Today I had a gentleman doctor and I thought although very upbeat and friendly, I was uncomfortable with the religious questions.  I personally believe there is a time and place, at this appointment was not it.  One, I didn’t feel well and the appointment should have stayed about that.  Two, he is  unaware of my circumstances and that was not the place.  I heard how he had converted, he asked me if I did, and it was very uncomfortable because again he had no idea of my circumstances A suggestion to possibly keep the appointment chatter on a lighter note. People coming in don’t feel well to begin with, any kind of heavy conversation may lead to some awkwardness (and it absolutely did).   Faith, and religion should be off the table for light conversation   Thank you.

I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

Boston HIV Testing

Who should get tested for HIV?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. However, some individuals may need to get tested more often. These include those who have had unprotected sex, have multiple sexual partners, have ever injected drugs, or have a partner who has tested positive for HIV.

Importance of getting tested

Early detection of HIV is critical for both treatment and prevention. According to the CDC, early treatment can help people with HIV live longer, healthier lives and also drastically reduces the chances of transmitting the virus to others. Regular testing also allows for early detection of other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, which can increase a person's risk of acquiring HIV.

HIV testing options in Boston, MA:

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

Urgent care and walk-in clinics in Boston, such as Carbon Health Urgent & Primary Care and PhysicianOne Urgent Care, offer HIV testing services. These clinics are a convenient option for those who need to get tested quickly, as they offer same-day and next-day appointments which can be booked through Solv's website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers also offer HIV testing. If you have a primary care provider, you can ask them about getting tested during your next appointment.

Free STD testing and community health centers

There are several community health centers in Boston that offer free or low-cost HIV testing. These centers are a great resource for those who may not have insurance or who are unable to afford the cost of testing.

At-home testing

At-home HIV testing kits are another option for those who prefer to test in the privacy of their own home. These kits can be purchased online or at a local pharmacy.

Prevalence of HIV in Boston

According to the CDC, the prevalence of HIV in Boston is higher than the national average. In 2018, there were approximately 172 new HIV diagnoses in Boston, a rate of 25.6 per 100,000 people. This is significantly higher than the national rate of 11.8 per 100,000 people. The prevalence of HIV in Boston is also higher than in nearby counties such as Hampshire and Worcester County.

Risk factors related to HIV in Boston

Several risk factors contribute to the high prevalence of HIV in Boston. These include high rates of other STIs, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, which can increase a person's risk of acquiring HIV. Other risk factors include unprotected sex, having multiple sexual partners, and injecting drugs.

Other STDs in Boston

In addition to HIV, other STIs such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and hepatitis are also prevalent in Boston. Regular testing is important for early detection and treatment of these STIs.

HIV Test FAQs

  • Who should get an HIV test?

    Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should take an HIV test at least once in their lives. Some people are more likely to get HIV and should be tested more regularly. Those who have had sex with an HIV-positive partner, those who inject drugs, sexually active gay men, and those who have unprotected sex are all included. You should get checked every 6-12 months if you have any of these risk factors.

  • How do they test for HIV?

    Antibodies created by your body in reaction to the virus are examined in HIV tests. A blood test or a sample of cells obtained from the inside of the cheek can be used to do this. After that, the sample is transported to a lab, where a technician will look for antibodies.

  • How long should I wait to get an HIV test?

    It can take a long time for your body to build enough antibodies for an HIV test to detect the illness if you become sick. It may take 3-12 weeks for your blood to contain adequate antibodies. Even if you have HIV, you could have a negative test result during this time.

  • How long will I have to wait for HIV test results in Boston?

    Because the sample must be sent to a laboratory for investigation, most HIV test results might take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. On the other hand, some Boston clinics or doctor's offices may offer rapid HIV testing, which can deliver a diagnosis in as little as 20 minutes. Rapid HIV testing involve a little sample of blood or fluid obtained from the mouth. You'll need a follow-up blood test to confirm the diagnosis if a fast test comes up positive.

  • How much does an HIV test cost?

    A variety of factors influence the cost of an HIV test, including the type of test you receive, the location where you are tested, and whether or not you have health insurance. HIV testing may be provided for free or at a low cost by some clinics or health authorities. If you're a college student, you might be able to get free HIV tests through your school.

  • Is HIV testing covered by my insurance?

    The majority of insurance coverage cover HIV testing. The Affordable Care Act mandates that all new health plans provide free HIV testing for those aged 15 to 65. If you have any doubts about what is covered under your individual health plan, you can always call your insurance company or go to their website.

  • Where can I get an HIV test in Boston?

    Many Boston health clinics, doctor's offices, and the health department offer HIV testing. Some pharmacies with on-site clinics may also be able to give HIV testing. Even though some clinics accept walk-in appointments, making an appointment ahead of time will save you time and ensure that you receive your test on the same day.

  • Can I get a same-day appointment for HIV testing?

    Yes, Solv offers same-day and next-day HIV testing appointments. We collaborate with thousands of healthcare providers across the country to make it easier for everyone to access the medical assistance they require quickly and conveniently. On our website, you can choose a physician near you and make an appointment right now.

  • How can I book an HIV test on Solv?

    Simply type "HIV test" and your location into our website's search box. You'll find a list of providers and their available appointment times on the next page. Fill out the form to arrange an appointment at a time and location that is convenient for you. Make certain that your appointment is for "HIV testing."

  • Can I test myself for HIV at home?

    Although there are several home HIV tests available, not all of them are accurate or FDA-approved. For a home test, you'll need a swab from the inside of your mouth or a blood sample taken with a finger pricker. If you get a positive result on a home HIV test, you should see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.
