Physicians, nurses and counselors provide care, counseling, and provide rape exams free of charge. The rape exam involves treating your injuries, preventing pregnancy, and collecting evidence of the assault. You do not have to use the evidence unless you choose to pursue legal action. But if you ever decide to make a police report, the rape exam is a central component.

Coral Gables, FL 33146
(305) 284-5927

Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can treat injuries or possible sexually transmitted diseases (STDS), provide pregnancy prevention and birth control information, and provide any needed follow up medical care. However, the Health Center cannot collect evidence or do a formal rape exam. Therefore, we strongly advise that you go to the Rape Treatment Center first if you were assaulted in the past 72 hours.
