Syphilis Test

Our doctors recommend the Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) Test when patients are at risk for Syphilis. If your results are 'positive' for the RPR test, our doctors will run a treponemal pallidum test for immediate confirmation.

Our doctors recommend only the most accurate tests available, while partnerning with top-rated CLIA-certified labs to process your results.

If our doctors determine that you are at risk for more than Syphilis, they may recommend additional STD testing for you. This may affect your total out-of-pocket cost.

How much does testing cost?

Pricing varies based on our doctor’s testing recommendation; along with the lab’s location and your payment method.

What payment methods are accepted?

We accept qualifying insurance plans, debit, credit, HSA and FSA accounts.

Syphilis Test Information

Syphilis Test Information

Is this a blood test or a urine test?
The Syphilis Test is a blood test. When you get to the lab, the lab technician will draw one small tube of blood. There's no need to get undressed or have any uncomfortable swabbing.

Will I need to fast or prepare for the test?
There is no preparation needed for the syphilis blood test. You do not need to fast.

Who should be tested for syphilis?
Syphilis affects both men and women. Syphilis spreads easily and it's common to have syphilis without having any symptoms. The only way to know is to get tested. Consider syphilis testing as part of routine STD screening, especially if you have had unprotected sex with someone whose STD status you do not know or are concerned about.

What will the test results tell me?
A negative Syphilis Test result means that there's no detectable disease in the blood at the time of the test. A positive test result may mean that you have syphilis... but if the Syphilis Test result is positive, the next step is to confirm the diagnosis with another test that can differentiate between syphilis and other conditions.

Be aware that the RPR may remain positive at a low level after treatment, and can be positive even in healthy folks, which is why we always follow it up with a confirmatory test.

Is syphilis curable?
Yes, syphilis is a curable infection, especially when caught early. syphilis is treated with antibiotics, which may be given by injection or sometimes through an IV. If your test is positive, our physicians will connect you with a local specialist for additional testing and treatment as well as follow up monitoring to confirm that you are cured, if appropriate.
