    • Refer your sex partner(s) to the STD/HIV (Adult Health Services) clinic for testing and treatment.
    • If symptoms re-occur, contact the clinic immediately.
    • To reduce risk of re-infection, use a condom every time you have sex.

    Professional Expertise

    All services offered at Adult Health Services are provided by professionals specifically trained in STD diagnosis, treatment and/or follow-up of all possible infections. Adult Health Services' personnel conduct field investigations to ensure that any person exposed to an infection is aware of their possible exposure and has the opportunity to be examined and treated quickly. Counseling and information are provided for anyone diagnosed with an STD. One of our program's goals is to ensure that anyone who is treated for an infection has knowledge about their infection and is able to take the appropriate precautions to ensure that they are not re-infected or exposed to another STD. Tarrant County Public Health identifies and treats more STDs in Tarrant County than any other medical provider. This doesn't mean that a person has to come to the health department for clinical services. However, in order to get an accurate diagnosis and adequate treatment for an infection, Tarrant County Public Health's Adult Health Services is the place to initiate the examination process. When other medical problems are identified, beyond the scope of STDs, referrals are made to other agencies for additional follow-up.  

     

    Confidentiality

    Adult Health Services staff and clinicians are bound by law to confidentiality regarding any diagnosis and treatment. Our staff will not discuss your health with anyone but you.

    All services/information will not be released without the client's written consent. Anonymous testing is offered for HIV only. Although all testing is confidential, with anonymous testing you will be assigned a fictitious name.
