What is an STD test?
STD testing allows you to know whether or not you have contracted sexually transmitted diseases, sexually transmitted infections, or if you have risk factors for any of them. Many times, STDs don’t cause any symptoms. You can have a sexually transmitted infection and not know it. It’s important for everyone to take good care of their sexual health and one way you can do this is by getting tested regularly.
About our lab and testing service
With Nao Medical’s lab and testing service, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We’re open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

How do I get tested for an STD?
There are many ways you can get tested for STD, depending on what type of STD you’re testing for. Doctors can get samples through blood draw, finger prick, urine sample, mouth swab, genital swab, discharge swab, or sore swab.
Can you self-check for STDs?
There are at-home STD tests you can use to test yourself. However, they aren’t FDA-approved as the results they generate aren’t accurate and reliable.
How do you know if you have an STD without getting tested?
Possible signs that you have an STD are:
- White, greenish or yellowish vaginal discharge
- Penile discharge
- Strong odor in the genitalia
- Itching or irritation in the private area
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Painful urination
How long does it take for an STD to show up on a test?
An STD may show up on a test five days to two weeks after exposure. If you test too early, you may get a false-negative result.
What happens when an STD goes untreated?
If an STD is left untreated, whether it has symptoms or not, it may cause infertility, blindness, neurologic issues, transmission from mother to child, and birth defects (for pregnant women infected with an STD).
What is the difference between emergency and urgent care?
The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.
Are your urgent care centers open after hours?
Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.
Should I make an appointment for urgent care?
Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.
Can I go to urgent care for non-emergency?
Yes. You can go to urgent care for consultations, physicals, primary care, lab tests, and more.
Can I pay for urgent care appointment without insurance?
If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

I would like to thank a receptionist for being beyond kind and helpful. I came this Saturday morning, and she was the only one at the desk. Thank you so much for being a beautiful positive person. All the staff was also excellent.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!
