What are STIs/STDs ?

STIs, sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections, are infections that can exist for several months/years without causing any signs and symptoms. They can be transmitted without the knowledge of infected persons and continue to spread from person to person.
 

What are the consequences of an untreated STI/STD ?

Some of the diseases can cause long-term complications. For example, untreated chlamydia infections are a major source of infertility among women. 


Why undergo a screening test?

  • You are sexually active
  • You have never undergone a screening test
  • You're beginning a new relationship
  • You have had a "risky" sexual experience

 

The tests offered at our clinic :

Marleen Tassé Health Services offers you timely screenings of the most common STIs/STDs, including :

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea 
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis B + C
  • Herpes
  • HIV

 

Our approach

All necessary tests are performed on-site and follow-up is assured. You just need to meet with one of our specialized nurses at the clinic for STI/STD screening tests. Our service is confidential and we offer the utmost discretion.

In men, screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea now usually only requires a urine sample and the results are available quickly. 

Screening tests are performed in a private lab. In the event of a positive result, Marleen Tassé Health Services treats the infection or refers you to a public doctor if you do not have a family physician.

 

Make an appointment (14 years and over)

Whether for an annual physical or whether you believe you have symptoms, such as pain or burning with urination, abnormal discharge, bleeding during sexual intercourse, or lesions, we invite you to make an appointment to consult a health care professional. 

It is important that men who wish to be screened, should not urinate two hours before the appointment.

Late Arrival Policy

 

In our efforts to offering you appropriate care and minimize wait time for all our patients, we have implemented a late arrival policy. If you are late for your appointment, please contact us immediately at 819-595-0790 to notify us. If we are unable to answer your call, please leave a message on our voicemail.

  • If a client is less than 10 minutes late : the allotted appointment time will be reduced but it is still to provide service for the care needed.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late : the reduced allotted appointment time may be  considerable and we may not have enough time to fully accommodate the type of service or care needed.

You will have the choice to:

  • Attend your appointment knowing that we may not be able to accommodate the full appointment time required for your health care and you may have to schedule another appointment for completion of the assessment; or

  • Reschedule another appointment in order to maximize your appointment time with our health professional.

All clients are encouraged to arrive at the office 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to register and complete any required paperwork. 

We aim to make your visit a pleasant one. We do recognize that situations arise that are out of your control. We will try to accommodate late‐comers as best as possible, but cannot compromise on the quality and timely care provided to our other patients

We appreciate your compliance and understanding with this policy so that we can continue to provide excellent health care as well as excellent customer service. 

Thank you!
