Many STDs, including HIV, present few obvious symptoms in their early stages. Routine testing can alert you to an infection, preserve your physical health, and provide peace of mind.
At BLISS Health, we have an on-site laboratory designed to keep patients sexually healthy and free of HIV and STDs. Once you become a patient, we can also conduct generic screens like a complete blood count (CBC), lipid panel, or basic metabolic panel.
BLISS Health, on site Laboratory, serves patients sexually active. Some of the most common conditions we test for include:
Whenever possible, we provide test results within 24 hours. Currently, we offer rapid testing for the seasonal flu, COVID-19, and HIV. Non-urgent testing may take longer, but results typically arrive within two weeks.
We offer several types of lab testing, including:
An in-office lab work appointment typically takes an hour or less. At the beginning of your visit, you check-in and meet with your physician. Your doctor orders the necessary tests and draws several vials of blood.
Afterward, they submit your samples to the on-site laboratory for analysis. Rapid tests provide results by the time you leave the office while more comprehensive panels take longer.
BLISS Health Test by Mail Program allows you to order a test kit via our website or app, or by calling the clinic. We send you a compact and discreet testing kit, called the “Little Black Box,” directly to your home.
Once you receive the kit, follow the instructions to collect the necessary samples. Afterward, send your samples back to us via mail. The on-site laboratory evaluates your samples and then contacts you with the results. If your results suggest an appointment is necessary, we call you to schedule either in-person or via telemedicine.
By offering lab work through the mail, we hope to expand our sexual health offerings far beyond Orlando and Central Florida.
Bliss Health utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to quickly process syphilis laboratory tests in-house instead of sending them to a processing center, which lets providers initiate treatment within the same day of consultation. The AIX1000 RPR analyzer ensures the accuracy of test results in two hours or less. This equipment can run 92 tests at the same time. BLISS Health is the only medical center in central Florida with this state-of-the-art equipment. The major benefit of this equipment is that will dramatically reduce the spread of STD’s, in our area, while increasing patient comfort and wellness.
