Welcome to Private Testing Center
Ohio is ranked 12th out of 50 states in gonorrheal infections.
Columbus, Ohio’s rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are climbing fast, according to new data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This continues a half-decade trend of Ohio’s rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea steadily climbing.
The rate of new cases falls disprportionately among adolescents and young people, with nearly two-thirds of new chlamydia cases being diagnosed in people ages 15-24.
“We have reached a decisive moment for the nation,” said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. “STD rates are rising, and many of the country’s systems for preventing STDs have eroded. We must mobilize, rebuild and expand services – or the human and economic burden will continue to grow.”
Turning this STD Epidemic around requires both proper education on safe sex, and making it as easy as possible to get tested for STDs. Because many STDs present absolutely no outward symptoms, many people are inadvertently spreading it to their partners and allowing it to wreck irrepairable damage inside their own bodies. This is made even more tragic by the fact that many STDs are curable with simple antibiotics.
Private Testing Center strives to be at the forefront of this pushback. We maintain over 2,000 testing locations nationwide, including 7 within a 50 mile radius of Columbus. Same Day testing is available with as little as 15 minutes notice, and the average lab visit takes only a few minutes. Testing is completely confidential and we strive to keep our rates as low as possible so you can get the answers you deserve without an unaffordable cost.
You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to find out for sure about your sexual health. Schedule a test with us today.

Private Testing Center strives to offer affordable, discreet and convenient testing in an effort to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.
The CDC estimates there are 20 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year, with 50% of those new cases falling on young people ages 15 to 24.
In one study, they examined 1,000 adolescents and found that 1 in 4 of them had at least 1 common STD, and 15% were infected with more then one. Most participants in the study showed no symptoms and didn’t even realize they were infected. Even among people who only had one partner in their lifetimes, 1 in 5 still had an STD — but of those with three or more partners, 50% had an STD.
The good news is that many STDs are curable, and those without a cure are treatable. You owe it to yourself and others to find answers and protect yourself. Private Testing Center has 1500 locations nationwide in one of the largest laboratory networks anywhere in the world. Same day appointments are available with scheduling as soon as 15 minutes after calling. The average lab visit lasts just 15 minutes and some results are available the following day.
