changing doctors
Oct 31, 2008

I am considering changing doctors for a variety of reasons. When I go to visit with a potential new doctor, how can I bring my medical history without letting my current doctor know that I am considering changing?

Response from Dr. McGowan

You have the right to ask for copies of your lab tests to review. You should keep a diary or log of your CD4 counts and viral loads and know what medications you have used. This information and results of any resistance tests would be necessary to have a proper consultation.
