We Offer Testing, Treatment and Hope
A lot of people don’t want to talk about sex or STI’s. If you would like to get tested and treated in a genuinely friendly and caring atmosphere, we’re here for you. Our walk-in HIV testing hours are 9:30am- 4:30pm Monday through Friday. A $10 donation is suggested but no one will be turned away if you’re unable to pay. All other testing must be done through a scheduled doctor appointment. Contact 818-301-6334
If you’re looking for a medical team that will take time to sit with you, talk with you, take time with you to discuss what’s happening, we’re your team. If you need services that we don’t offer, we have a great referral system so we’ll be able to get you connected. If you do have something going on, we’re here to help. You’re going to make it through.
