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!

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.

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.

Getting Tested for STDs in South San Francisco, CA

Who should get tested for STDs?

Anyone who is sexually active should consider getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). This is particularly important for those who have multiple sexual partners, are not consistently using protection, or are experiencing symptoms of an STD. However, it's crucial to remember that some STDs may not show any symptoms at all, making regular testing important for everyone. According to the CDC, certain groups, such as sexually active women under 25, men who have sex with men, and individuals with HIV, should get tested more frequently.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for STDs is a vital part of maintaining your health and the health of your sexual partners. Early detection and treatment can prevent many of the serious long-term health consequences associated with STDs, such as infertility, certain types of cancer, and increased risk of HIV. Regular testing also helps to reduce the spread of these diseases, as many people with STDs are unaware they are infected and can unknowingly transmit the disease to others.

Std testing options in South San Francisco, CA:

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

There are numerous urgent care and walk-in clinics in South San Francisco that provide STD testing, such as Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care in nearby San Bruno. These facilities often offer same-day or next-day appointments, which can be easily booked through Solv’s website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers are another great option for STD testing. They can provide comprehensive care and follow-up treatment if necessary. If you have a primary care provider in South San Francisco, consider reaching out to them for testing.

Free STD testing and community health centers

For those without insurance or who are looking for low-cost options, free STD testing is available at various community health centers in and around South San Francisco. It's important to remember that while these services are free, there may be wait times and availability may vary.

At-home testing

At-home STD testing is also an option for those who prefer privacy and convenience. These tests can be ordered online, completed at home, and sent back to a lab for analysis. Results are typically available within a few days.

Prevalence of STDs in South San Francisco

South San Francisco, located in San Mateo County, has seen a rise in STD rates in recent years, mirroring a national trend. According to the CDC, the most common STDs in the area include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The rates of these diseases are generally higher in South San Francisco than in nearby counties such as Washoe County and Tuolumne County.

Risk factors related to STDs in South San Francisco

Several risk factors contribute to the prevalence of STDs in South San Francisco. These include high rates of unprotected sex, multiple sexual partners, and lack of regular testing. Additionally, certain demographic groups, such as young adults and men who have sex with men, are at higher risk. Social determinants of health, such as access to healthcare, income level, and education, also play a role in STD rates.

STD Testing FAQs

  • Where should I get an STD test in South San Francisco?

    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 South San Francisco 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 South San Francisco?

    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 South San Francisco 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 South San Francisco?

    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 South San Francisco?

    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 South San Francisco?

    Many South San Francisco, 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 South San Francisco?

    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.
