The Health Department's Tuberculosis Clinic provides screening (Mantoux tuberculin skin testing), evaluation, directly observed therapy (DOT), and treatment for tuberculosis patients.

Hours of Operation

We provide routine tuberculosis screenings. These screenings are often needed as a condition for employment or entry to school.

Routine tuberculosis screenings are offered on the following days:

  • Monday: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
  • Tuesday: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
  • Friday: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Screenings are available by appointment, but walk-ins are accepted. Please call 412-578-8162 to schedule an appointment. The TB Clinic does not offer Quantiferon (QFT or IGRA) screening; this is a specific blood test to detect antibodies to Tuberculosis. To obtain this test we suggest that you contact your PCP.
