What We Do:

  • Preventative care such as routine physicals
  • Comprehensive testing for sexually transmitted infections including throat and rectal tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia
  • PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV)
  • PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis for HIV)
  • Anal pap tests for people at high risk for anal cancer
  • HIV treatment
  • Hepatitis C treatment
  • Gender-affirming hormone therapy
  • Cervical cancer screening
  • Breast cancer screening
  • Pregnancy testing

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we treat every patient with compassion and kindness regardless of ability to pay.

Did you know that PrEP and PEP, medications designed to reduce the risk of getting HIV, are free to people with HUSKY Health insurance (Connecticut’s Medicaid program)?  There are also programs that help the uninsured get free access so don’t let the cost stop you from protecting yourself.
