Been getting HIV tested there for years and every time it's quick and easy and all staff are EXTREMELY nice and friendly. A wonderful benefit for me living in Orlando the last 22 years.
The people at the Center are wonderful, kind, considerate and helpful folks. I have been there in terrible moods and they understood and did NOT judge me based on my actions. From the top people to every volunteer, I have been treated with the utmost respect and dignity. I am in a terrible situation and thier kindness and love have been a foundation for me. Without the good people who work there I would have committed self termination months ago. Besides FREE testing there are several groups that meet there on a regular basis, art shows, Drag Queen story time and a plethora of events aimed at community as a whole. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Discreet, helpful staff that are caring without being judgmental. I came in for regular HIV/STI testing and was in and out quickly. Wait times can vary though depending on time and day, but they work to give individual care. They’re a fantastic resource and all testing is free.
Great place to go to get tested for free. Friend, and helpful staff members.
This experience was new and interesting. The staff smiled, spoke clearly and politely, and didn't rush through the details of stuff. They make sure you understand what you're doing, not only do that you have the knowledge, but also so you understand the importance of everything involved. Almost immediately after opening, I walked inside, was greeted and provided with the clipboard to fill out. I hadn't even gotten to my address and I was called! So being early, especially first thing in the morning on a Monday, helps out. The testing for the first bit wasn't too long, maybe 20 minutes or so, but largely due to the results of the test needing to develop. Conversation was professional and light, nothing awkward. The same with the second test. Quick, easy, in and out, nothing complicated. All told, entire visit lasted maybe an hour, if even that. To top it all off, these people are doing this non-profit. They're doing it so they can help the community. Your orientation and/or preference doesn't matter. They're here to help you. And yes, it's better to know and be informed, than to live not knowing and possibly hurting someone or yourself. Get tested, be aware, possibly save a life
Welcoming place to visit for any walk of life. Great testing facility.
These people are amazing! They truly care...I prefer to get my std/HIV tests here compared to other companies.
