Long wait time, understandably, it was busy, and the front desk person called me on my phone and asked us where we were...I told her that we were in one of the examination rooms, waiting for the doc, they forgot that we were there. The staff otherwise were great, the EMT/manager was super helpful, and the doctor was a high-quality guy...it was a great experience overall.

Once I checked in, I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. The receptionist also acted as the person who draws blood. She was perfectly nice but not overly so where it felt inauthentic. I was out after about 5 minutes worth of blood drawn, so I'd say the whole experience took about 20-25 minutes. Space was overall clean. It's a very unassuming location just down from Park Avenue, I believe. Blink and you might miss it.

I am a Canadian. Was in town for a conference. I was under the assumption that I only needed a rapid test to fly back home. Nope. PCR test required. Found Arcpoint on Google. Easy to use appointment website, great followup, fabulous follow thru, exceptional staff. Got everything I was expecting. Highly recommended.

This has to be the nicest, cleanest, most professional lab facility I have ever been to. I went in around lunchtime, expecting delays and lots of impatient people. What I experienced was far from this. The assistant, was very professional and courteous. There were two other patients and they handled each of us with respect and due diligence. I plan on coming to this location for ALL my lab work in the future! Plus, I have been recommending this place to all my friends and colleagues.

We have come to this Urgebt Care twice and received excellent care both times. First, our son had a bad allergic reaction to an insect bite resulting in full body hives. The staff was quick to see him, communicated well throughout, and explained all options and follow up clearly. Our second time required several stitches for our son and the staff was again great in navigaing difficulties.

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.

Latest STD Testing Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)

STD Testing FAQs

  • Where should I get an STD test in Cary?

    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 Cary 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 Cary?

    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 Cary 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 Cary?

    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 Cary?

    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 Cary?

    Many Cary healthcare 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 Cary?

    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.

Cary STD Testing

STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are fairly common. You may be at risk of developing an STD or STI if you engage in sexual activity (sexually transmitted infection). STD cases have been on the rise for several years, according to the CDC, with 2.6 million new cases reported in 2019. Young people are especially vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections: approximately half of all new STD cases occur in people aged 15 to 24.

It's also possible to have an STD without any symptoms or indicators. You may unknowingly infect people if you are unaware that you have an STD. You may help avoid infection by getting tested for STDs and telling your current and prior sexual partners so that they can be tested as well.It's also possible to have an STD without any symptoms or indicators. You may unknowingly infect people if you are unaware that you have an STD. You may help avoid infection by getting tested for STDs and telling your current and prior sexual partners so that they can be tested as well.

Many STDs, especially if identified early, can be successfully treated. Delaying treatment, on the other hand, could lead to serious health issues such as complications during pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, heart disease, and certain cancers.

General STD testing recommendations are as follows:

  • Everyone should be tested for HIV at least once, depending on their risk level. HIV testing should be done once a year for everyone who has had unprotected intercourse.
  • Once a year, sexually active women under the age of 25 should be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  • Sexually active women over 25 should be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia once a year if they have an increased risk of infection, such as multiple sexual partners or a new partner.
  • Pregnant women should be tested for syphilis, HIV, and hepatitis B.
  • Sexually active gay men should have annual syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea tests.
