HIV testing and Doctors
Feb 7, 2001

Hi. I was tested at 6 months for HIV, and never heard the results back. I'm assuming they were negative. But, my Doctor who prescribed the test seemed very scatterbrained, and said I knew more about HIV then he did...so now I'm very worried, that if he had to decipher the test would he make a mistake? Or when the test comes back will it just say Positive or Negative? Thank you very much...

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Practitioners are obligated to inform patients of results and entertain post-test counseling. I would demand the results, or have it done with another practitioner. MH
