Comprehensive STD Screening

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our passionate healthcare professionals are committed to providing superior medical services in a setting that ensures optimal comfort and confidentiality for every client. One of the critical services offered by our clinic is Comprehensive Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Screening, which forms an integral part of maintaining excellent women’s health. This service incorporates comprehensive checks for various types of sexually transmitted infections. We utilize advanced diagnostic procedures with high degrees of sensitivity, ensuring accurate detection and identification.

Rapid Testing For Common STDs

Testing speed can be crucial when dealing with STDs since a quick diagnosis offers a better chance at prompt treatment and management. Recognizing this necessity, Womens Health Group Chicago provides Rapid Testing For Common STDs utilizing state-of-the-art testing technology that yields reliable results within minutes or hours rather than days. Our staff adheres to strictly professional standards while executing these tests, guaranteeing complete patient privacy throughout the process.

Treatment and Management Of STDs

The experienced doctors at Womens Health Group Chicago specialize in delivering highly effective treatment strategies once an individual receives an STD diagnosis. Whether it entails administering antibiotics or antiviral medications for curable infections or initiating appropriate therapies for diseases deemed chronic but manageable like HIV/AIDS, we provide specialized care tailored specifically to each patient’s condition and circumstances following their respective needs.

Partner Notification and Testing

In efforts to control any potential spread of infection among sexual partners, Womens Health Group Chicago also offers Partner Notification And Testing services as part of its expansive reproductive wellness program. Once you receive your test results from us, we can notify your partner(s), anonymously if desired, recommend necessary evaluations allowing them too to seek immediate interventions should they prove positive for any STI’s assessed on our panel exam.


Womens Health Group Chicago isn’t just about diagnosing and treating diseases. We believe that a preventative approach is critical to maintaining optimal health. To this end, our clinic offers Vaccinations as part of our STD services in Evanston. These vaccinations include those against Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis A & B which contribute significantly towards reducing the risk levels of acquiring certain types of STDs.

Preventive Education and Counseling

Awareness and understanding are key elements when it comes to minimizing the spread and impact of sexually transmitted diseases on one’s wellness or within communities. Our trained healthcare professionals gladly take the time to engage with patients offering Preventative Education And Counseling around various aspects related to STIs – including prevention, safe sex practices, proper treatment adherence, risk reduction strategies among others – all aimed at empowering each individual with knowledge for informed decisions regarding their sexual health matters.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
