Long live the doctor and his family...Amen

Response from Dr. Holodniy

1. Fabulous response after two months. 2. It is very likely on your next visit that your viral load will be undetectable and your CD4 count in the 300-350 range. 3. Usually people will be seen after 3 months and then every 3 months thereafter.
