Sexually Transmitted Disease Testing (STD’s)
The Knox County Health Department is currently able to screen for HIV, Syphilis (blood test), Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Hepatits C in anyone who is sexually active. We can diagnose Herpes Simplex Virus if active lesions are present. We are able to treat most of these diseases and known contacts or refer to another facility if needed. At this time we do not have the resources available to offer Hepatitis B screening.
The Knox County Health Department offers free condoms to the public during business hours. Please ask for them at the front desk of our facility or ask your Nurse, Dietician or Nurse Practitioner at any visit.
