i was told i was hiv postive. i then ended up going to the doctors who only deals with this disease; the people who specialize in the testing who then told me my first results were very false. how could they have made that mistake?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what specific HIV tests were obtained and what the results were. However, certain tests are not 100% accurate and must be confirmed by using other tests with different methodology.
