Testing and Counseling
We provide both confidential and anonymous HIV testing.
- In confidential testing your name and date of birth will appear on your test and information sheet.
- In anonymous testing a barcode and your date of birth are used as identifiers. Your name is never recorded on any paperwork or test.
A trained and qualified staff with many years of experience will provide testing and counseling services to you. We are bilingual in English and Spanish.
How to Test
- You can make an appointment by calling 334-7960. We schedule times on Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
- We also accept walk-in appointments, however, scheduled clients will be seen first.
- The testing procedure will include pre and post test counseling.
- Results are only given in person.
- Confidential Rapid Test (Clearview) will give results in approximately 15 minutes. (Only available Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm, not during extended hours.)
