Comprehensive STD Screening

The Women’s Health Group Chicago is dedicated to supporting the health and well-being of all women in Lincolnwood, realizing how vital it is for them to feel safe and secure when discussing their sexual health. As part of our commitment to comprehensive healthcare, we offer elaborate STD screenings necessary for an accurate diagnosis. Our screenings include thorough testing for commonly known and less frequently encountered sexually transmitted diseases; this ensures that patients can get the most appropriate care suitable for their specific needs.

Rapid Testing For Common STDs

Time means everything when dealing with certain medical situations. Acknowledging this, the Women’s Health Group Chicago provides rapid testing services for common STDs – allowing our Lincolnwood patients quicker access to results, as well as peace of mind. Swift test results not only lessen anxiety but also facilitate prompt treatment if needed, which significantly enhances treatment outcomes.

Treatment and Management Of STDs

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we understand how emotionally stressful a positive diagnosis can be. That’s why our team works diligently to provide expert treatment and management plans tailored specifically to your condition. Offering complete support during the entire process including initiation of therapy promptly after diagnosis or results confirmation helps prevent further complications or transmission. We stand by you — ensuring efficient disease management at every step.

Partner Notification and Testing

STDs are serious health issues affecting both individuals in a relationship—so it’s crucial that partners are notified promptly upon detection in one partner. In line with this understanding, we carry out confidentially tactful partner notification and coordinate subsequent testing procedures as required under structured guidance from experienced professionals within the comfort zone of our clinic environment.


In addition to screening tests and treatments, at Women’s Health Group Chicago we work tirelessly towards preventing infections through vaccination efforts too. Our range of available vaccines is designed to cover the most prevalent STDs—offering a proactive option for women in Lincolnwood seeking protection. Our team ensures that you understand how these vaccinations work and which ones are recommended based on your unique health profile.

Preventive Education and Counseling

We believe prevention is always better than cure, which drives our focus on preventive education and counseling sessions. Apart from conducting regular tests and administering treatments or vaccinations, we offer thorough guidance to our patients about safe practices, risk mitigation strategies, lifestyle changes, etc., all tailored according to individual needs. This initiative aims at fostering empowerment among Lincolnwood women regarding their sexual health decisions while minimizing potential risks.

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.
