ABOUT US

What is SAFER SIX?

 

SAFER SIX is a safe space designed for all individuals, regardless of gender and sexual orientation to encourage more sexual testing and normalizing treatment as a part of regular everyday health screening for all individuals.  

We felt there was a service lacking for the citizens of West Toronto and want to fill that void.

SAFER SIX offers tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Where possible, we’ll treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – sometimes samples need to be sent off to laboratories and if we find any infection, we’ll contact you immediately to ask you to follow-up for treatment.

Originally from St. John's, Newfoundland, "Dr. B" moved to Toronto after completing his residency in Family Medicine at Memorial University. With a passion for sexual health medicine & giving back to his LGBTQIA2S+ community, SAFER SIX was created as a way to fill the need for more STI testing & treatment in a city with limited access to physicians and accessible, inclusive clinics.
