Frequently Asked Questions
Who can come to Family Planning?
The services are available to anyone regardless of age, sex, race, marital
status, income, legal residence, or national origins.
How much will it cost?
Patients are charged for the services at the time of their visit using
a sliding fee scale. You may be eligible for reduced fees or free care
depending upon your age, family income, and family size.
How do I make an appointment?
Appointments may be scheduled during office hours, which are 8:00 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. daily by calling (814) 333-7088.
What if I am not ready to have children?
Contraceptive methods can be provided on-site after you have made an informed
choice about the method that you prefer. A physical examination and lab
tests are done to help the medical practitioner determine the safest method
for you and your partner.
What if I have all the children I want?
Our staff is available to explain permanent methods of birth control to
you and your partner. We can assist in making arrangements for you to
have a vasectomy (male), or to have your tubes tied (female).
What if I think I'm pregnant?
An appointment can be made at Family Planning for pregnancy testing. Results
can be received the same day from a urine specimen. Counseling will be
given to assist in learning about resources available for further medical care.
What if I'm worried about infection or venereal disease?
"Sexually transmitted disease" (STD) is a term that includes
many diseases or infections that can be passed from one person to another
sexually. If you feel that you or your partner may have symptoms of an
STD, it is very important that you seek medical attention for diagnosis
and treatment. The Family Planning staff will provide information, examination,
and treatment if you have an infection or disease.
Do you offer other services for women?
The HealthyWoman Project can offer pelvic exams, pap smears, clinical
breast exams, and mammograms at no cost for women 40 and over who cannot
afford them. There are also funding sources available if additional testing
or procedures are needed.
