Additional Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
Our primary care and infectious disease providers also offer screenings for these STIs:
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis (trich)
For these tests, you can make an appointment at any location by calling 440-578-8200, or we'll try our best to do same-day STI screenings for walk-in patients. Results are not available on the same day, and you'll need to register as a Signature Health patient to receive these tests.
We accept Medicaid, Traditional Medicare, and some Medicare Advantage plans. A sliding fee scale is available for qualifying individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. 
Walk-in sexual and reproductive health clinics for teens also are available in Ashtabula and Painesville.

Meet Our Infectious Disease Providers

Signature Health's infectious disease providers care for patients living with viral hepatitis, HIV, and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). They work with each patient on an individualized plan that may include medication or other treatment options. As needed, patients also can be connected with primary care, counseling, psychiatry, addiction recovery, and case management services within Signature Health.
