CHICAGO, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- STD Test Express (www.STDTestExpress.com) offers leading direct-to-consumer testing services for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). STD Test Express is the only service on the Internet to have partnered with a telemedicine network of physicians across the United States who are specifically trained to order these specialty tests, discuss STD symptoms, review test results, answer questions, and prescribe the necessary treatment for pickup at a local pharmacy.
How STDTestExpress.com Works
The percentage of the U.S. population infected with an STD is on the rise. Many STDs show no symptoms and most sexually active individuals do not know their potential infection risk. STD Test Express offers comprehensive panels of the most common STD tests including an early detection HIV test. Unlike most HIV tests, which require 90 days from exposure to detect infection, this DNA-based test can detect HIV as early as 28 days after exposure. Other tests available tests include chlamydia, herpes I & II, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, and syphilis.
After a test order is approved by a physician, consumers choose from over 1,800 nationwide diagnostic lab facilities to provide a specimen. Providing a specimen takes about 15 minutes at the facility and no advance appointment is necessary. Results are generally available in 48 to 72 hours and are accessed via a secure website. The entire experience is private, convenient and fast. Regardless of results, all consumers receive a free doctor phone consultation to review and understand their results with a specially trained physician dedicated to their account. For some infections, the physician is able to prescribe treatment and phone a prescription in to a convenient local pharmacy.
Customers have heralded STDTestExpress.com calling it an "Excellent experience. Confidential and fast," and "Very convenient and as stress-free as a test for STDs could possibly be."
