“Red Carpet”

“Red Carpet” is the name given to Whitman-Walker’s “rapid visits” system for patients who are new to Whitman-Walker and newly diagnosed with HIV. Under “Red Carpet,” these patients are seen by their entire care team on their first visit.

Patients who are new and want to get HIV/AIDS care can walk in to either Whitman-Walker site and ask for “Red Carpet.” They do not need to mention HIV in any way. Our staff will start them through the process.

Red Carpet services are available from 9:00 am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Gay Men’s Health and Wellness/STD Clinic

Confidential testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is conducted on a walk-in basis on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 pm at the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center, 1701 14th St., NW. There are no appointments. Clients are seen on a first come, first served basis.

Arrival by 5:30 is recommended to ensure service. Any arrival after the clinic opens is not guaranteed to receive services. Expect to spend at least an hour to 90 minutes once you have been registered at the clinic.

Basic screening for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia is free of charge.
