HIV testing is available for anyone over the age of 13. Our friendly, certified testing staff members will help you determine what to get tested for and how often you should return for testing.

For HIV testing, we use rapid-reponse testing, so getting tested for HIV is easy and test results are available in minutes. Our testing staff will always go over your test results with you and connect you with the resources you need.

We also offer free testing for STIs (sexually transmitted infections) – syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis – in partnership with the Bellflower Clinic. STI test results are available within two weeks of the testing date.
