Our health clinic offers birth control pills, DepoProvera, intrauterine devices (IUD), and Nexplanon. For those who cannot use these methods, we give counseling and referrals. For those receiving DepoProvera we require two negative pregnancy tests (separated by 10 days) before initiation of contraception.
Urine pregnancy tests are available at our health clinic. We request that you wait 10 days after a missed period before visiting with us for a pregnancy test. This can help prevent a false negative result. The visit includes pregnancy counseling and proof of pregnancy (required for prenatal Medicaid coverage) for the Family Services Department (FSD).
We test for gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, HIV and syphilis. We can also diagnose herpes or warts by clinical appearance of lesions. Positive STD counseling and treatment are provided free of charge. Although we are primarily a women’s health clinic we can do HIV and syphilis testing for males. Referrals for other male STD testing are available upon request.
Blood tests, urine tests, and other types of lab work help diagnose illnesses and monitor the effects of medications and other treatments. They are valuable tools that can identify the cause of your symptoms or make sure the medication you are taking is working as it should. At the Randolph County Rural Health Clinic, we perform several laboratory tests to help you manage your health. Bring in an order from your current primary care provider to get your lab testing started.
Lead is a toxic substance that may be present in dust, paint, soil, and drinking water. When ingested or inhaled as dust, lead poses a serious health risk to young children. Low levels of lead exposure can cause nervous system and kidney damage, learning disabilities, poor muscle coordination, slower growth, hearing losses, and also speech, language, and behavior problems. While low level exposure is most common, exposure to high levels can have devastating effects including seizures, consciousness, and even death.
Who is at risk?
Any child may be at risk for lead poisoning; however, children under the age of six are at greatest risk for lead poisoning due to their frequent hand-to-mouth behavior and rapid development. Lead poisoning can occur regardless of financial, social-economical or cultural status.
This testing does not require an appointment at the Randolph County Rural Health Clinic, walk-ins are welcome.
Tuberculosis (or TB) is spread by tiny germs that can float in the air. The TB germs may spray into the air if a person with TB disease of the lungs or through coughs, shouts, or sneezes. Anyone nearby can breathe TB germs into their lungs.
These germs can live in your body without making you sick. This is called TB infection. Your immune system traps TB germs with special germ fighters. Your germ fighters keep TB germs from making you sick.
But sometimes, the TB germs can break away and spread. Then they cause TB disease. The germs can attack the lungs or other parts of the body. They can go to the kidneys, the brain, or the spine. If people have TB disease, they need medical help. If they don’t get help, they can die.
How do I know if I have a TB infection?
A skin test is the only way to tell if you have a TB infection. The test is “positive” if a bump about the size of a pencil eraser or bigger appears on your arm. This bump means you probably have a TB infection.
TB tests require two separate visits within 48-72 hours of each other. For more information on the TB test or tuberculosis click here.

Tests Performed Routinely:
- Snellen Eye chart for near-sightedness (tests far vision).
- Pure Tone AudiometryFrequencies of 1000 Hz, 2000Hz, and 4000Hz are screened in both ears.
- Children must hear two out of three tones at 20 dB at 1000Hz and 2000Hz and 25dB at 4000Hz.
- Original ERO-SCAN® OAE Test System
- ERO-SCAN ClassicEtymotic Research introduced the ERO•SCAN® OAE Test System, the first truly handheld otoacoustic emissions measurement system in 1998. The system featured an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that made the product a worldwide success in newborn, early childhood and school screening, where testing is often conducted by technicians, assistants and volunteers. Another feature contributing to the ERO-SCAN’s ease of use was a novel, patented noise rejection algorithm that permits accurate OAE measurements in background noise levels as high as 70 dB SPL. The effectiveness of this algorithm allows for successful testing of infants and children in less than ideal settings where high ambient noise makes testing with other equipment impossible.
Do my parents have to know about my visit?
No. All information is kept confidential and no parental consent is required to have an exam or to begin a birth control method.
Do I have to make an appointment to be seen?
No. We are able to see some patients without an appointment at our walk-in clinic, but we see patients scheduled for an appointment first. You are guaranteed to be seen only if you have an appointment.
Is the Randolph County Rural Health Clinic a free clinic?
No. Our prices are lower than most private doctor offices and we offer discounts based on your household income. Some patients may qualify for free pricing.
Do I have to pay before I am seen?
No. We never withhold medical care or birth control based on inability to pay.
Can I be tested for all STDs at your health clinic?
There is not one test for all STDs. We draw blood for HIV and syphilis testing, take a cervical culture for gonorrhea and chlamydia testing, and look at a sample under the microscope for trichomonas diagnosis. Herpes and warts (HPV) are diagnosed by clinical appearance at our health clinic.
