The STD Clinic is a drop-in clinic that provides low-cost services, such as diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STI), test results and counseling on high-risk behaviors. Anyone, regardless of age, is eligible for services. Exams, including treatment (if necessary), are $30.  The health district does not deny services to clients who cannot pay the fee. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The clinic may close early or intermittently when maximum patient volume is reached. To increase the likelihood of being seen the same day, you should come to the clinic early. Visits typically include an exam, counseling, test results and treatment.
