There is usually a standard STD test that involves screening for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea. Some clinics also offer consultations and subsequent treatments in the case of positive results.

These STI screenings require a urine sample and/or blood sample. It is important to note the time window of collection for urine samples and avoiding antibiotics prior to screening .

Himerus Health is an STI clinic that offers a wide range of services and treatments at no loss of an efficient process.

They have a great team of doctors, nurses and staff with extensive backgrounds in Genito-Urinary Medicine and sexual health to name a few. Customer feedback has also described their experiences with these staff as friendly and professional.

We like that there are multiple options for booking – through the phone, email and even a very convenient online feature. The clinic itself is very conducive to privacy which will be very reassuring for clients looking for a discreet environment.

We also appreciate that the variety of STI testing and screening is great. Aside from the regular screening for HIV, hepatitis, syphilis etc, they also offer rapid tests and express STI screening, aimed at those who are asymptomatic. 

They really have quality options out there that will suit different people of different lifestyles. For standard STI screening, the results are given through text and email and positive results will be discussed through a call.

For those who tested positive, treatments are available through the clinic as well so whichever situation a patient faces, it can consistently be overseen by Himerus Health.

In terms of price, it should be noted that their services are slightly more costly. However, some services are compatible with health insurance, so it is best to inquire beforehand.

Pros

  • Ensure discreet environment
  • Great range of services
  • Professional and friendly staff and doctors
  • Various channels available for booking

Cons

  • Prices are a little bit more costly
  • Shorter operating hours on Saturday

Customer Reviews

The staff here are so lovely and friendly while also extremely professional. Dr. Loy is so knowledgeable and has a great way of explaining everything. Definitely worth going private over the public clinic, especially as insurance covers 50% – John Barton

Nassau Clinic offers many services from primary care consultation, travel vaccinations, digestive disorders and a sexual health clinic. The doctor, Dr. Liam Regan, has a wide background that accommodates such a range. 

This includes working in psychiatry, pediatrics, oncology and of course sexual health. We appreciate that this makes it very convenient for the patients looking to inquire and be treated for multiple conditions.

Their sexual health clinic in particular offers full STI screenings, rapid test options as well as treatments and prescriptions for gonorrhea, chlamydia and PrEP. It is a great range for those who would like a more summarized version of options for STI screening out there. 

They do offer vaccinations for hepatitis A, B and HPV but in some cases following positive test results, they may be referred to a specialist clinic. 

These STI results, however, can be released through different channels such as text message, post, or through a consultation arrangement.

We do advise to check the website and call ahead as there are limitations on their acceptance of medical cards and insurance cards. Additionally, some of their prices are on the more expensive end so make sure to check the price list ahead of time.

Pros

  • Wide background of doctor
  • Offers both rapid tests and standard screenings
  • Does offer vaccinations for HPV and Hepatitis A and B
  • Offers PrEP consultation and prescription

Cons

  • Prices of services are more on the upper end
  • Limitations on medical cards and insurance cards

Customer Reviews

Flexible Hours and Good Service

Getting an appointment is so easy and the hours are great for working individuals. On time telephone/video consultation and I got my prescription in just a few minutes. Dr. Liam Egan treats you with compassion and very easy to talk to. Well worth it for flexible hours and good service. – Donnalyn Abella

Professional, Helpful, Efficient, Caring

Was a little anxious beforehand since I’m only in Ireland temporarily, so this was my first interaction with Irish health care and wasn’t completely aware of how the system works. However, I was pleasantly surprised! I was able to get in for an appointment almost immediately on the weekend where the doctor was professional, helpful, and efficient (but caring at the same time). I was also able to pick up my prescription immediately afterwards which was nice. I highly recommend going here for fast but effective services. – Ryan Johnson

Dr Derek Freedman fosters a very calming and discreet environment that allows patients to feel at ease with their comprehensive examinations.

What stands out for us is Dr. Freedman’s approach to his patients. He offers expertise for those who face anxiety in the case of positive results.

Many customer feedback reference his professional yet calm, understanding and patient demeanor which we greatly appreciate. It really makes the clients feel at ease and assured no matter the results.

To further emphasize this patient centeredness, they also provide an option for chaperones to accompany the client. Chaperones can be a good way for some people to feel more at ease when dealing with heavy news or intimidating processes.

We also like how the testing environment and process structure makes the client feel relaxed with its confidentiality. For example, tests are identified with your first name and initial of your surname and even your life insurance companies will have no way of knowing unless the individual informs them.

Same day appointments are usually available and the clinic is open everyday.

As for its limitations, although it is a clinic that makes up for its small size, more complex treatments and procedures may need to be sought elsewhere. 

Pros

  • Great customer feedback on friendliness and professionalism of doctor
  • Environment and processes conducive to privacy
  • Offer expertise for a variety of conditions
  • Same day appointments usually available

Cons

  • Rapid testing and self testing options not available
  • Limited options on more complex treatments or procedures

Customer Reviews

Trinity Clinic offers a wide range of services alongside the variety of options for STI testing. Aside from the standard screening, they offer rapid HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea tests as well as PrEP consultations and a free cervical smear with cervical check.

For those who are seeking treatment or who would like to take preventative measures, they also offer vaccines, antibiotics and cryotherapy. 

It is a very complete list of STI screening and treatments that will make it easier on the patient to have it all in one place.

STI treatments are handled very carefully and with discretion. Clients are also able to choose between having a male or female doctor, whichever would make them more comfortable.

We also greatly appreciate that they are considerate of different lifestyles including MSM (men who have sex with men) offering the appropriate throat and rectal swab tests in these cases.

Their team of doctors have extensive experiences in pediatrics, family planning as well as general medicine to round this out. Multiple customer feedback has praised these doctors and staff for providing a pleasing, friendly and professional process.

This wide range of experiences also supports their other services of travel health and general practice. This is very convenient for those looking to inquire about conditions and services outside of sexual health.

We do caution taking a look at their price list beforehand, as some services such as the PrEP consultation and prescription as well as their HPV vaccine are on the more expensive side.

Pros

  • Friendly and professional doctors and staff
  • Wide range of STI screening services
  • Offer cryotherapy and antibiotics for treatment
  • Considerate of other sexual lifestyles

Cons

  • Has some services that are more costly
  • Only open on weekdays until 5:00 PM

We highly recommend D2 Medical if you’re looking for a medical center that offers a generous amount of clinics and services. 

The clinic itself specializes in travel vaccines and general practice but also offers, aside from STD screening, sports medicine, pregnancy planning and various vaccines.

As the medical director, Dr. John Ryan has backgrounds in clinical psychiatry, GP, and women’s health. Their team also has backgrounds in psychology, contraceptives and athletic therapy to support the wide range of their services.

The standard STI screening test is offered at a great price and is inclusive of the consultation rate.

We greatly appreciate that the possible consultation questions and procedures are listed down in detail on their website. 

This is very helpful especially for patients who are intimidated or embarrassed by the topic of sexual health. It gives them a snapshot of what to expect and prepare details for questions about their sexual history.

The clinic also allows patients to choose their preference between male or female doctors, although they do caution that this would be schedule dependent.

What we found great about the clinic as well, is that they were willing to help during cases of informing sexual partners of any positive results. They do offer treatments like antibiotics and topical treatments in these types of cases.

They have many services that are closely related to STD testing like pregnancy test, HIV test counseling, and contraceptive options. It really is impressive how many of these services make it a great option for those looking for a comprehensive examination.

It is important to point out that the clinic is closed from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM everyday. What’s more is that the speed in availability of test results do vary based on the test performed.

Pros

  • Consultation questions and procedures are disclosed on the website
  • Provide in speaking with sexual partners
  • Offers men’s and women’s health services
  • Offers contraceptive services

Cons

  • Varying time of availability of test results
  • Closed from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
