Wait time was good, got in at 1:40pm for my 1:30pm appointment. Staff was friendly and explained things to me. I did kind of get the impression that they were tired of me because I was trying to ask clarifying questions to make sure that later on I will not be thinking about the questions I was afraid to ask :P. It’s very easy for me to just accept what I’m told, and not ask anything, but I’m trying to learn to advocate for myself because it seems like that’s what is needed in healthcare. But I could tell they were definitely getting tired of me asking my dumb questions and just repeating answers they already gave because I was obviously didn’t hear it the first time. I probably need to work on my communication skills because I don’t feel like either of us felt like we were getting through to the other person. It felt like we both felt like we knew what the other person was saying and that they just weren’t willing to hear it.

Carbon Health Urgent Care, Castro - 1998 Market St
Dr Fitzpatrick was thoughtful and attentive and did what tests she could. Her diagnosis of pneumonia was not confirmed by the staff at CPMC, however. It seems I have some sort of infection, maybe more than one—perhaps bronchitis for one. The high pulse rate was due to dehydration. BTW the X-ray copy I took to the hospital was incompatible with its system. Nonetheless I appreciate the care I was given at Carbon.

Melanie went out of her way to accommodate my husband and me when we came in to get Covid tests. Due to our unforeseen scheduling error, we didn't have an appointment at that time, but she said we could wait in case she could fit us in between patients, even though they were fully booked. She was able to complete our tests quickly and courteously. We were extremely pleased with the care we received. Thanks, Melanie!

Getting Tested for STDs in Oakland, CA

Who should get tested for STDs?

Anyone who is sexually active should consider getting tested for STDs, especially those with multiple sexual partners. According to the CDC, certain groups are at a higher risk, including young people aged 15-24, men who have sex with men, and pregnant women. However, it's important to note that anyone can contract an STD, regardless of age, gender, or sexual orientation.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for STDs is crucial for several reasons. First, many STDs do not show any symptoms, meaning individuals could be infected without knowing it. Regular testing allows for early detection and treatment, which can prevent serious health complications down the line. Additionally, knowing your STD status can help prevent the spread of these diseases to others.

Std testing options in Oakland, CA:

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

There are numerous urgent care and walk-in clinics in Oakland that offer STD testing. For instance, Carbon Health located at 411 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA 94610 and Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care at 3900 Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA 94611 provide these services. You can book same-day and next-day testing appointments at each of these locations through Solv’s website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers are another option for STD testing. If you have a regular doctor, they can often provide testing, treatment, and follow-up care.

Free STD testing and community health centers

There are also several free STD testing centers and community health clinics in Oakland. These centers provide testing and treatment on a sliding scale based on income, making it a more affordable option for many.

At-home testing

At-home testing kits are becoming increasingly popular and accessible. These kits allow you to collect a sample at home and send it to a lab for testing. Results are typically available online within a few days.

Prevalence of STDs in Oakland

Oakland, located in Alameda County, has seen a rise in STD cases over the years, mirroring a national trend. According to the CDC, the most common STDs in Oakland are chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The rates of these STDs are higher in Oakland compared to nearby counties such as San Mateo County and Tuolumne County.

Risk factors related to STDs in Oakland

Several risk factors contribute to the high prevalence of STDs in Oakland. These include a high rate of unprotected sex, multiple sexual partners, and a lack of regular testing. Additionally, social factors such as poverty, lack of access to healthcare, and stigma around STD testing can also contribute to higher rates of infection. It's important for residents to understand these risks and take steps to protect their health, such as getting regular STD tests at one of the 605 testing locations available in the area.

STD Testing FAQs

  • Where should I get an STD test in Oakland?

    In a doctor's office, a health clinic, or an urgent care center, you can get an STD test. If you're experiencing symptoms, it's best to visit a doctor's office, where they can also treat you or issue you a prescription. While some Oakland clinics and urgent care centers allow walk-in appointments, it's advisable to make an appointment ahead of time to prevent excessive waits.

  • How long does it take to get STD test results?

    Various testing are required for various STDs. Depending on the type of STD test you took, you may receive your results in two to ten days. Some outcomes may be immediately available. Your doctor may be able to diagnose an STD through a physical examination. In some cases, your doctor's office may only contact you if your test results are positive.

  • How much does an STD test cost in Oakland?

    The cost of STD testing is governed by several factors, including where you are tested, the type of test you need, and if you have health insurance. Some Oakland clinics may offer free testing or testing on a sliding scale based on your income. Because of the cost, don't put off obtaining an STD test. With your doctor's office, discuss the cost and payment choices. Delaying STD treatment may have catastrophic implications.

  • Does insurance cover STD testing in Oakland?

    The cost of STD testing is governed by a number of factors, including the location of the test, the type of test required, and whether or not you have health insurance. Some clinics may provide free or sliding-scale testing, depending on your income. Don't let the expense of an STD test deter you from getting one. With your doctor's office, discuss the price and payment choices. Delaying STD treatment could have catastrophic ramifications.

  • How do they test for STDs in Oakland?

    There are around 20 different forms of STDs, each with its own set of diagnostic tests. No single test exists that can detect all types of STDs. Your doctor can help you figure out which tests you'll need. In STD testing, a blood sample or a urine sample may be used. Your doctor may also take a swab from the inside of your cheek, your vaginal area, or another potentially infected place.

  • What STDs can be detected by a blood test?

    Blood tests are used to diagnose hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes, HIV, and syphilis. In a laboratory, a technician examines a blood sample for antibodies that the body has produced in reaction to disease. The virus's DNA can also be detected by several blood tests. Remember that if you've recently been exposed to an STD and your body hasn't yet produced antibodies, you could test negative even if you have the disease.

  • Can I get a same-day appointment for STD testing in Oakland?

    Many Oakland, CA urgent care providers offer same-day and next-day appointments, which you may book through Solv. To make healthcare more accessible to everyone, we collaborate with thousands of top-rated local providers. Our physician partners understand that waiting days, if not weeks, for an appointment isn't always the best option, and they share our commitment to simple, accessible health care.

  • How can I book an STD test on Solv?

    To find a healthcare practitioner in your area, simply enter your location and search for "STD test" on our website. A list of providers and available appointments can be found on the following page. Choose the most convenient time and location for you. Make it clear that you've come for STD testing.

  • How long does an STD test take in Oakland?

    If you have a specific STD, inform your doctor so that the necessary test can be scheduled. Otherwise, they'll help you figure out which tests you'll need. The nurse or doctor simply needs a few minutes to get a blood sample, a urine sample, or a swab from the probable infection site.

  • Can I test myself for STDs at home?

    Although there are several STD home tests available, not all of them are accurate. The accuracy of any STD test is determined by the quality of the sample taken. For home STD kits, a blood sample, a urine sample, or both are frequently required. Because doctors and nurses have more experience collecting samples, traditional in-office STD testing is the most accurate.
