Will walk in clinics give you permission to test for HIV at a blood place bcuz your own doctor will give you the sheet to do it but will a walk in clinic do it as well ?

Most walk in public clinics at least where I am from test using a rapid test such as OraQuick which uses a swab of the mouth. In other words there is no need to send you to a separate lab to draw blood...

i noticed at almost all the clinics they offer some test for free and confidential for your privacy,dont hesitate if you were in a situation that has you worried,but i wonder why you dont use your own doc,is it the cost?

Rapid tests only go so far tho and blood is way more accurate and also im from canada so our healthcare is one of the best to but i dunno about the states but up here i dont know if they will do it or not but bcuz its faster to do it in a clinic itll be easier

at any rate then get tested,i know in canada(my bloodline from there)they have good care and no cost so why the wait get it done,either way just do it,thats the only way to be sure,do wait,the longer you wait the more stress you will get from it,and you give the virus time to start destroying you.take care

Your healthcare system might be the best in your opinion, but that opinion is not held by everyone....
