In an attempt to help combat the growing problem the health department offers free STD testing for the most common diseases, but not all, and treatment options. Many people infected with STDs don’t know they have been exposed because many of these conditions can be present without any symptoms. However, if left untreated they have the potential for leaving lasting damage, so regular testing is advised by health professionals for all sexually active persons.

From the Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center Incorporated on Dover Road to the Tennessee Department of Health on Pageant Lane, there are multiple testing locations throughout Clarksville.
