The Denver Metro TB Clinic is a comfortable, friendly and confidential place to receive Tuberculosis (TB) testing and treatment. Everyone on our team specializes in TB. We understand what it is like to have TB and how to help you complete treatment so you can protect yourself and your loved ones. Our mission is to ensure that every person in our community has the opportunity to be healthy and free from tuberculosis (TB).
Due to the increase in COVID cases, starting on Monday, November 23, 2020, we are switching to visits by appointment only. Please call ahead at 303-602-7240 to schedule appointments for testing, even if you want to come in the same day. We are postponing non-urgent evaluations, but are able to accommodate patients with suspected active TB. For medical professionals, we also provide phone consultations and resources to help diagnose and treat people with latent TB infections, including patient referrals.

What is TB?
TB is a disease caused by germs that are spread between people through the air. It usually affects the lungs but may also affect other parts of the body, including the brain, kidneys or spine. It can be deadly if left untreated. Completing treatment is very important for people with TB and is provided for free at the Denver Metro TB Clinic.
There are two stages of tuberculosis: latent and active. In latent TB infection the germs are sleeping so you will not feel sick and you cannot give TB to others. Active TB means the germs have 'woken up' and you have symptoms (cough, fever, weight loss, nigh sweats) and might be able to pass TB to the people you spend the most time with.
The best way to prevent the spread of TB is to be tested if you think you have been exposed and to be treated if you have tested positive.
You can learn more about TB, including tuberculosis symptoms, by visiting our TB fact page.

Denver Metro TB Clinic Leading Efforts to Eliminate TB in Colorado
Thousands of Colorado residents are infected with TB and at risk for getting sick. Most of these people have not been tested, so they do not know they are at risk, or that they could take medicine to protect themselves. In an effort to eliminate Tuberculosis in Colorado, the Denver Metro TB clinic collaborated with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to develop a TB Elimination Plan.
