What to expect during your visit

Our clinic operates just like any other clinic.  Please show up 15 minutes early to register and fill out paperwork as this helps us see you and other patients in a timely manner. A typical visit looks like this:

 

  • When you arrive, check in with our receptionist.

  • You will be given the paperwork to complete. Fill out the paperwork as honestly as you can. This helps us to better understand you and can provide the best possible care.

  • Give your completed paperwork to the receptionist. 

  • The nurse will then call you and take you back to the clinic.  

  • You will be asked to give a urine sample. This is used for pregnancy tests and/or STI testing.

  • Once you give the nurse your sample, the nurse will take you back to an exam room. The nurse will ask you questions about your sexual health. It is important to answer the questions to the best of your ability. The nurse will then go over what will happen during the visit and answer any questions.  Depending on your need, you may also see our Nurse Practitioner.

  • If you are needing birth control, we will provide birth control at the visit depending on the form of birth control you are interested in. For example, if you are interested in a LARC product (Nexplanon, IUD), a follow-up appointment will be scheduled to have the birth control inserted.

  • If you came in for STI testing, samples are sent to the State Lab in Denver for testing. Test results will be provided within a week. If you are in for STI treatment, we will treat you that day and you will be given a prescription to take with you. The nurse will provide education and go over any additional information with you.

  • When the appointment is completed, the nurse will take you back to the waiting room.

  • There you will check out with the receptionist and schedule a follow-up appointment if needed.

Important things to remember

  • Everything during your appointment is confidential. Colorado Law protects minors when it comes to sexual health which means that nothing can be shared with your parents; however, we strongly encourage you to talk to your parents.

  • If you are a female and are a first time patient with the clinic, you will need to transfer your Well Women Care over to us.  Well-Women Care includes a breast exam, pelvic exam and pap smear.

  • For STI testing, you have to wait at least three weeks after you had unprotected sex. Most STI's can’t be detected until three weeks after the infection been contracted.
