    After Your Clinic Visit

    If you were diagnosed with an STD:

    • Take all medicine as directed.
    • 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.
    • Call for STD test results and return for follow-up examinations as directed. We can only give results to clients. Test results are not given over the phone to friends or family members.


    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 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 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. When other medical problems are identified, beyond the scope of STDs, referrals are made to other agencies for additional follow-up.  



    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.
