STD Screening, Testing, and Treatment


STD / STI Screening, Testing, and Treatment

Couple Sleeping TogetherSexual Transmitted Disease (STD), aka Sexual Transmitted Infection (STI), Testing and Treatment is always a sensitive subject. Nobody likes getting this done, and nobody is proud of it. But in today’s world, if you are sexually active with more than one partner, you should be getting screened at least twice a year.

We offer you a state-of-the-art medical clinic, Innovative Express Care, where you can book an appointment by clicking here, show up, discuss your symptoms with a physician, get tested, and leave. If warranted, you can get the antibiotic treatments right there on the spot. We take most commercial insurance (see billing/insurance) and we also offer a simple rate of $150-$250 that includes all STD testing. Follow-up treatment is $75 which includes the medication.

Honestly, it’s the best deal in Chicago, but most importantly, you’ll be getting the proper treatment in a private and efficient manner, 7 days per week.

Why Come to Innovative Express Care?

Other clinics just test you. Some make you wait over an hour in a large congested waiting room. We will get you seen within 10 minutes of walking through the door. We will even serve you some coffee, Coke, Diet Coke, or water so you can give us a urine sample. Why not use our free Wi-Fi while you’re waiting, but don’t get too comfy, you won’t be waiting long.

What Innovative Express Care Offers

We test for:

Gonorrhea
Chlamydia
Herpes Type 1 and type 2
Syphilis
HIV

For Men: We offer Gonorrhea and Chlamydia testing via your urine (no more swabbing). For Herpes type 1 and type 2, Syphilis, and HIV we draw blood.

For Women: We offer Gonorrhea and Chlamydia via urine and pelvic exam if necessary. It really matters what’s going on down there. So, if you only want to know if you have GC or Chlamydia, then we do the urine. But the truth is, sometimes it’s just a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis (which are not STDs), and we would have to do a pelvic exam to diagnose these. We would have that discussion with you, so you’ll be the one to decide.

Discrete and Private

Honestly, there is no reason to worry about this at Innovative Express Care. We are a medical clinic. You will be treated with the utmost dignity, nobody knows what you’re there for (strep, flu vaccine, travel medicine, primary care visit), and we’ll get you out quickly. Your credit card (if we need it) will be billed as “Innovative Express Care” and we have a parking lot. We’re also located off the highway, and every taxi cab and Uber driver knows where Ashland and Fullerton is.
