Screening and Treatment

Individuals can receive screenings and treatment of STDs through their county health department, as well as through their private physician. All STDs are treatable and a few are curable. If you are having experiencing any symptoms of an STD or suspect that you may have an STD, a trained healthcare provider should check you out immediately.
