Response from Dr. McGovern

The first thing you should do is to obtain medical evaluation by someone expert in HBV to determine whether or not you need treatment. Your serologies alone can not determine that decision. With your physician you can discuss aspects of HBV infection and your career prospects and options for medical training.
