My partner was just dignosed a couple days ago and he came back positive. I got tested just after we found out. Both of us came back negative on our last tests which was roughly 6months to a year ago. Do you think my partner should get tested again for a third test on top of the one that he is going to get at the local HIV clinic.

I'm sorry to hear about your partner's test. Before I start anything for HIV, if possible, I'll get a repeat antibody test.
I don't think that a third test would be unreasonable.
