|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...

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
