What are the STI test options in Rowlett,TX?
Deep in the heart of Dallas lies the city of Rowlett, Texas. This suburb is within an easy commuting range of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, but all that convenience comes with risk as the region saw one of the most drastic surges in STD transmission in recent years.
Dallas County saw the highest increase in cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea in the nation, according to a Health Testing Center’s analysis of the 2017 Sexually Transmitted Disease Report by the Centers for Disease Control.
With syphilis rising 40% higher than the national average, chlamydia 29% and gonorrhea approximately 37%. Worse still, more than 2,500 people were denied service or turned away because of insufficient availability of appointments.
The newest County Health Director is in the process of expanding clinical service capacity. He estimates that between up to 200-400 patients were turned away each month over a two-year period. Before he took the position, he claims he even tried to call in to see what the appointment wait time was. He waited on hold for over an hour and never was able to get through.
There are plenty of locations you can visit to get tested in the Rowlett region. A handful immediately off the Sam Rayburn Tollway and/or the 75. STI testing is offered at Real Options for Women on west McDermott drive. Whichever you choose, call in advance and make an appointment, to better assure and ensure that you are seen in a timely manner. More options, and possibly free STD testing, may be available by checking community events.
