What is an HIV Specialist?

An HIV Specialist is a physician deeply knowledgeable in handling the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). They are typically trained in clinical, internal, or family medicine and focus on comprehensive healthcare for HIV patients. This includes not only prevention and diagnosis but also the effective management and treatment of the virus.

  • Regular Health Monitoring: Frequent health assessments and blood tests are crucial for monitoring the virus and the patient’s overall health. Learn more about our primary care services.
