Certified HIV Testers/Counselors

    Our in-house HIV testing will use the Alere Determine Combo, which provides the ability to identify HIV sooner than conventional rapid tests.  The test detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 antigen, making it possible to detect HIV within 12-26 days after infection.

​

The Alere Determine Combo is a finger prick test where results are available within 20 minutes.

​

Please contact us to set up an appointment if you would like to get tested.
