How It Works
When you arrive our practitioner will discuss your sexual history and take a urine sample or conduct a visual examination and take a swab sample.
- Where appropriate a follow up telephone consultation will be arranged to discuss a positive or result of concern
We ask patients to phone for their results between 3.30pm and 4.30pm. We can e-mail your results after talking with you.
For Herpes, treatment is usually a course of tablets and/or ointment.

“I never imagined being able to open up and discuss so deeply my early life abuse, held back by embarrassment and fear, with Dr Myskow – for the first time ever – I felt completely safe and supported; not judged or disbelieved on any level. I would say she genuinely cares and has helped me immensely”View more testimonials
