I have so many patients who I see who come into my office requesting STI and/or HIV screening. This is great! And I love this type of visit. Not only because of its generally relative ease, but also because of the implicit relational aspect of it. We can’t be properly tested for STIs unless someone has had a good conversation with us about the details of our sex lives.
