What is STD testing?
STD (sexually transmitted disease) testing is a diagnostic that is performed during a quick office visit to Lawrence Family Practice Center. Some STDs may cause symptoms to exhibit immediately, but others do not. The only way to ensure that your sexual health is in great standing is to receive STD testing. It's also the most effective way to protect your sexual partners from potentially contracting an infection or disease. Our office in Lawrence, KS places a special focus on compassionate, patient-driven care, and we value your privacy and wellness above all else.
