We are proud to be recognized by the Best in Ottawa website as a leader in STI/STD testing in the region!
What are STIs/STDs ?
STIs, sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections, are infections that can exist for several months/years without causing any signs and symptoms. They can be transmitted without the knowledge of infected persons and continue to spread from person to person.
What are the consequences of an untreated STI/STD ?
Some of the diseases can cause long-term complications. For example, untreated chlamydia infections are a major source of infertility among women.
Why undergo a screening test?
- You are sexually active
- You have never undergone a screening test
- You're beginning a new relationship
- You have had a "risky" sexual experience
The tests offered at our clinic :
Marleen Tassé Health Services offers you timely screenings of the most common STIs/STDs, including :
- Hepatitis B + C
All necessary tests are performed on-site and follow-up is assured. You just need to meet with one of our specialized nurses at the clinic for STI/STD screening tests. Our service is confidential and we offer the utmost discretion.
In men, screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea now usually only requires a urine sample and the results are available quickly.
Screening tests are performed in a private lab. In the event of a positive result, Marleen Tassé Health Services treats the infection or refers you to a doctor if you do not have a family physician.
