The STD Clinic is conveniently located downtown in the Salt Lake City Public Health Center at 660 South 200 East, Fourth Floor.
Parking is available on the west side of the building, or the clinic is two blocks south of the Library station on the TRAX red line.
Whenever our schedule allows, we do our best to accommodate walk-in patients Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. However, you can decrease your wait time and guarantee being seen by making an appointment.
Our clinical staff is the most experienced in the state, with over 50 years of combined experience in the STD field. We have Spanish speakers on-staff, and we provide translation services for other languages.
All visits to the clinic, except when testing only for HIV, require a $35 office visit fee. If you are testing only for HIV, there is no office visit fee.
Due to the additional documentation required, court-ordered tests and tests required for a sexually oriented business license are subject to higher office visit fees. Call 385-468-4242 for details.
Our most common tests:
We also offer:
You should be tested any time you think you may have been exposed to an STD, if you have any of
symptoms of an STD, or when you just want to get checked out and be sure.
If you’re concerned about a specific STD, see our STD Testing Window Chart for the best time to be tested, when symptoms usually appear, and how long it takes to get test results.
Other than the rapid HIV test that offers same-day results, STD test results generally take 7 to 10 days.
We can treat bacterial STDs (such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis) with antibiotic therapy. It is extremely important that the patient avoid all sexual contact for at least 7 days after beginning treatment.
It is essential that a patient’s sexual partners are also treated for the infection in order to avoid a re-exposure and reinfection. If a patient is treated, but his or her partner is not treated, the patient will likely become reinfected with the STD almost immediately.
For patients who wish to remain anonymous but want a partner to know they have been exposed and need to be evaluated, we offer an anonymous partner notification service to anyone who tests positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, or HIV.
Treating viral STDs (HIV, herpes, hepatitis, HPV) is more challenging and, for some diseases, can require long-term medication management and additional visits with your regular health care provider. The STD clinic does offer HPV (genital wart) treatment on-site for $50
If a patient tests positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, or HIV, he or she may choose to contact their partner(s) directly and refer them to the STD Clinic for low-cost testing and treatment.
But if a patient wishes to remain anonymous but wants their partners to know they have been exposed and need to be evaluated, our partner notification service will contact the partners and encourage them to visit the STD Clinic for evaluation.
We ensure anonymity for all patients; if we contact the partner(s) of anyone diagnosed with an STD, we are legally and ethically prohibited from providing any information about the original patient that referred us. We take this responsibility very seriously and our disease investigators receive extensive training on how to protect our patients’ personal information.
Partner notification is available for all cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV diagnosed anywhere in Salt Lake County, including at clinics besides ours.
