When you arrive at the clinic, tell the front desk that you have an appointment with the SAFE Teen Health Clinic. They will direct you to the private “teen only” waiting room. Typically, your appointment will happen in this order:
- Check-in with the SAFE health educator
- Vitals (heart rate, blood pressure, height and weight)
- Meet with doctor
- Provide blood and urine sample (if necessary)
- Check out with the SAFE health educator
All that is required for a full STI screening (gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, herpes, and Hep B) is a urine and blood sample. For an oraquick HIV test, all that is required is an oral swab to get your result in 20 minutes.
