HIV Primary Care

HIV-infected persons receive ongoing primary care within the CID one-stop shopping model and experience seamless transitions between diagnosis, assessment, and treatment. The CID staff creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient receiving HIV treatment and primary care. Creating this plan involves assessing the patient’s overall health to make sure the best medications are prescribed in creating a treatment plan. Medical services offered include care from a team of nurses and doctors specializing HIV/AIDS who are at the forefront of HIV/AIDS research and treatment.
