Take Care Down There Clinic

The Take Care Down There Clinic is a free, walk-in STI testing clinic at Columbus Public Health. We test for:

  • Gonorrhea (optional urine sample, oral swab, and/or anal swab sample)
  • Chlamydia (optional urine sample, oral swab, and/or anal swab sample)
  • Trichomoniasis (optional urine sample)
  • Syphilis (optional blood draw)

All test results take 5 -7 business days to process.

Please note: While we provide STI testing, we do not provide STI treatment or physical exams. If you are experiencing STI symptoms, you should visit CPH’s Sexual Health Clinic, or your primary care physician.

HIV Testing

Clinic visitors will also be screened for their HIV risk. We offer higher risk individuals a finger-stick HIV test. Same-day HIV test results (approximately 30 minutes) are provided.

For more information about STI testing at Columbus Public Health, contact CPH Community Services at 614-645-6732. For other testing locations in Ohio visit ohiv.org
