My brother had pharyngo-tonsilitis last month.The doctor told me that he had an early infection of HIV.We're still waiting for the result of the 3rd test which the doctors said is accurate.If my brother is really HIV+, what's the first step to do?

Response from Dr. Henry

The first step is to find the best HIV doc in the area and get evaluated clinically and with some additional lab tests (usually including a T-cell count and HIV level and often a resistance tests). KH
