Testing apparatus and vialsCrescentCare offers rapid HIV testing and counseling six days a week, with results in minutes. Testing uses a small blood sample and is done using the most advanced rapid test available, which can detect HIV earlier than other rapid tests.

HIV and STI Testing is confidential, and is provided on a walk-in basis (no appointment necessary). The test is conducted with a state-certified counselor, in a one-on-one session (if you’re in a relationship and would like to get tested together, see Couples HIV Testing below). If someone tests HIV positive, the agency will work with that person to gain access to HIV medical care and other services he or she needs.

Testing times and locations are listed below.
