HIV Specialists in SFO

Jul 26, 2008

Dear Doctor:

Recently had an HIV exposure and curretly on PEP.

Can you recommend some good HIV specalists in SFO? I am very stressed and not sure if there are meds to keep my sanity while I wait for my PEP to complete. I am tolerating the meds.

Thanks a lot. You are my only hope in life. My wife deserted me six months ago in favor of my best friend. So I have no place to go for emotional support since my family is in India



Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Tanush,

There are many excellent HIV specialists in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would advise you check the American Academy of HIV Medicine's Web site at They have a roster of certified HIV specialists listed by locale. The Frascino Medical Group is located a bit south of San Francisco in Los Altos. As for keeping your sanity while on PEP and during the follow-up testing out to six months, counseling and/or anti-anxiety medications may help.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
