Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello and thanks for posting.

I am sorry to hear about your brother's diagnosis of HIV infection. I work in a close-knit group of very experienced HIV treaters. If you live in our geographic vicinity, we would be happy to take your brother. If you did not live near by, the American Academy of HIV Medicine has a web site this link which allows one to search for an HIV treating doctor.

Good luck!
