At the initial visit to the Scott County STD Clinic, a patient will be asked if they are a Scott County resident or an Iowa resident.
Scott County residents are eligible for confidential testing and treatment for STDs, including HIV testing. A $10 donation will be requested at the time of service. Iowa residents who are not a Scott County resident are eligible for HIV testing only.
Clinic forms and instructions are provided by the Health Department receptionist. Upon completing the form, the patient will be given an identification number and remain seated in the waiting room.
A clinic staff member and the patient will meet in a private room to review the forms and assure completeness. The staff member will provide HIV counseling and STD information and prevention.
After the interview, the patient will see a clinician for a physical exam. Depending on the exam, the patient may need lab work requiring blood. If appropriate, the patient may be given the Hepatitis A and/or B vaccine. At the end of the visit, the patient will see the clinician for any preliminary test results and may be given treatment based on those results.
