Response from Dr. Henry

Recommend going to one of the community based AIDS service organizations located IN NYC near you (such as Gay Men's Health Crisis clinic/office) to discuss your situation and get a referral to a patient friendly doctor and clinic. If you have no insurance there a number of good public health clinics and hospitals in NYC with good HIV programs. KH

Sustiva & Kivexa
Atripla and cocaine
