HIV Test
Apr 23, 2005

My husband and I just found out that he is HIV+. They did the Western Blot test. Should he do a different type of test to make sure that the diagnosis is right?

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

A Western blot is quite specific for HIV and when positive indicates infection with HIV.
