Naay testing sa CDO Medical Center, Polymedic Hospital ug sa Provincial Hospital. But I think it is best sa Provincial or Northern Mindanao Medical Center ka pa testing kay naa didto ang HIV AIDS Center for Northern Mindanao. Dili lang ko sure but I think the testing in the Provincial Hospital is free. Just ask. Sa mga hospitals naay bayad.
