Would you recommend this provider to others?
Yes

Why did you see this provider?
Routine STD/HIV testing

Was the provider affordable?
The clinic provides free STD and HIV screenings.  If a medication is prescribed, the patient has to pay for the prescription to be filled.

Please describe your experience with the provider:
The atmosphere overall is not especially welcoming, and the service is slow, but as long as an HIV horror story video is not playing on a loop in the waiting room, it’s easy to bring a book and get through it.

Please describe your experience with the provider’s support staff:
The nurses and staff are, for the most part, respectful and informed.

Please describe the accessibility of the practice for you:
The building is on the bus line, located in Oakland, and is pretty easy to get to by bicycle as well.  Parking is probably an issue for motorists, as there are various misspelled warnings against parking in the adjacent Arby’s restaurant lot.
