All HIV testing is done in conjunction with counseling about sexual risks for HIV and STDs. We will do an assessment with you about what you know about sexually transmitted diseases and what you perceive your risks for infection to be. We can answer any questions you might have about risks and ways to reduce or eliminate risks. This counseling occurs while you are waiting for your test result.
· RAPID-HIV: Blood test with results in 20 minutes.
· SYPHILIS: Blood test with results in 2 weeks.

SYPHILIS TESTING FAQS
Who should get a syphilis test?
You should get tested regularly if you are pregnant, are a man who has sex with men, have HIV infection, and/or have partner(s) who have tested positive for syphilis.
What does the syphilis test involve?
We do a blood draw, called veni-puncture, from your arm (same process as if you were at your doctor's office).
How long does it take?
How much does it cost?
As with our Rapid HIV test, the syphilis test is free of charge.
How long does it take to receive the results?
Typically, it can take up to 2 weeks for the lab to process the result. We will only contact you if the test result is positive.
