STD & HIV Testing, Screening and Treatment Clinics
At Dr Tan and Partners, we offer a warm, friendly, and non-judgemental environment for our patients to discuss their issues with our doctors. Our male and female doctors in our 6 clinics are experienced in STD/HIV treatment and diagnosis.
STD Testing and Screening:
When you are considering getting tested for STDs, one thing that is very important is privacy and confidentiality; these are the absolute minimum you will get with us at Dr Tan and Partners.
The techniques and protocols used in the clinics are modern and are kept up to date with local as well as international guidelines.
In addition, we take hygiene and sterility very seriously. Our reusable equipment is autoclaved and sterilised after every use. Disposable equipment, such as needles, are only ever used once – these are not even reused on the same patient let alone another patient. So please rest assured that we do not cut corners.
Our doctors have one ultimate goal; to treat all the patients with care and professionalism, with no cases no compromise on quality and confidentiality.

Human Papilloma Virus Testing and Vaccination
HPV can be passed on through sexual contact. It can reside in or on the genitals, anal region or throat. Most strains can cause warts, which can be treated fairly easily. However, there are 4 high risk strains that can cause cancer in the above mentioned areas, the most concerning is cervical cancer in women. Of course men can be screened as well to ensure they are not putting their partners at risk.
Testing is performed via swabs and vaccination involves 3 injections over a 6 month period to give you immunity to these high risk strains.
As long as you are sexually active, you remain at risk of acquiring STDs. Condoms should certainly be used but still remain only 95% safe. The prudent course is to get regular testing.
