My physician is retiring and I have moved 200 miles away. I have found a new physician that is an Internal Adult Medicine physician. Can internal med docs Treat HIV?
Response from Dr. Henry
Physicians from a wide variety of backgrounds can treat HIV patients-a key factor is their interest and experience with HIV+ persons. There are some internal medicine doctors who have an interest in HIV infection and have large practices. I would recommend contacting local community based HIV organizations to find out who they recommend as a provider. Your retiring provider should also be able to make a recommendation for you. KH
