At Dr Tan and Partners, we offer a warm, friendly, and non-judgemental environment for our patients to discuss their issues with our doctors. Our male and female doctors in our 6 clinics are experienced in STD/HIV treatment and diagnosis.
STD Testing and Screening:
When you are considering getting tested for STDs, one thing that is very important is privacy and confidentiality; these are the absolute minimum you will get with us at Dr Tan and Partners.
The techniques and protocols used in the clinics are modern and are kept up to date with local as well as international guidelines.
In addition, we take hygiene and sterility very seriously. Our reusable equipment is autoclaved and sterilised after every use. Disposable equipment, such as needles, are only ever used once – these are not even reused on the same patient let alone another patient. So please rest assured that we do not cut corners.
Our doctors have one ultimate goal; to treat all the patients with care and professionalism, with no cases no compromise on quality and confidentiality.
HIV Testing, Screening and Treatment:
HIV Post-exposure prophylaxis (or PEP)
Post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, is another name for emergency HIV treatment. PEP is not a cure for HIV, it is a form of HIV prevention. It is a short course of antiretroviral drugs that stops exposure to HIV from becoming a life-long infection.
Patients need to undergo emergency treatment within 72 hours afters HIV exposure.
What HIV PEP drugs do we use?
We use a variety of different Anti-Retro Viral medications in various combinations based on a patient’s specific circumstances.
We do not believe in a ‘on-size-fits-all’ approach.
Although different medicines are used, they all have to be taken for 1 month.
We use the latest Gold Standard PEP Medicines with fewer side effects and better HIV prevention. This is in accordance with the latest International Standards.
The usual costs involved are:
1.) Consultation $60-$80
(Depending on the duration of the consultation)
2.) Blood tests $140
(Full Blood Count, Liver Function, Kidney Function)
- These tests are to establish a baseline.
- We do not need to wait for these results to start the PEP treatment
- You may not need these tests if you had them done recently e.g. when you did an executive health screening
3.) Rapid HIV test $50
(This is to ascertain that you do not have an established HIV infection)
4.) Medication $1800
(This is for the entire 1 month of medication. The price is the same regardless of which drug regime we use)
Total cost $2193.50 – $2214.90 with GST Maximum
If you do not require the blood tests (e.g. you have done them recently) the cost will be lower.

STD Screening, Testing and Treatment

Human Papilloma Virus Testing and Vaccination
HPV can be passed on through sexual contact. It can reside in or on the genitals, anal region or throat. Most strains can cause warts, which can be treated fairly easily. However, there are 4 high risk strains that can cause cancer in the above mentioned areas, the most concerning is cervical cancer in women. Of course men can be screened as well to ensure they are not putting their partners at risk.
Testing is performed via swabs and vaccination involves 3 injections over a 6 month period to give you immunity to these high risk strains.
As long as you are sexually active, you remain at risk of acquiring STDs. Condoms should certainly be used but still remain only 95% safe. The prudent course is to get regular testing.
