Professional and Discreet for Youth
Halifax Sexual Health Centre, formerly a Planned Parenthood clinic, deals with reproductive health issues for women and men, with a particular emphasis on youth. They accept both walk-ins and appointments, and are particularly useful for people who don't have a family physician, for people who may not be comfortable with their own physician, and for youth seeking anonymity with sexual health issues and counselling. As an older woman, I felt a bit out of place in a waiting room full of teenagers, but the nurse assured me that they see people of all ages. It was a long wait to be seen, but that seems to be attributable to how thorough they are with questions and counselling. The staff were very professional and kind, and had excellent bedside manners. They took their time to ask and learn about my medical history and were willing to discuss any concerns I might have. They also offer prescriptions for birth control pills at reasonable prices, and give out free condoms and literature on protecting your health. Highly recommended.
