Doctor specializing in HIV
      #101849 - 07/20/04 01:43 AM

Does anyone know of a Doctor who accepts ADAP and specializes in an array of illness besides HIV. I'm HIV positive, however, I'm not comfortable going to an HIV clinic that only specialzes in that area. I no longer have private insurance because I went back to school to further my education winning this battle, but I just refuse to believe what I was told; that the best care is in a HIV clinic settin; I'm sure other Doctors out there have the qualifications to handle such issues as well. I want to get to a place where I can feel comfortable and for once no one knows my purpose for going there. I just want to feel normal again. Please advise, the anxiety is killing me.

Well, ADAP is not a program that you can go and choose a doctor with. ADAP is AIDS Drug Assistance Program and deals with medications. The Ryan White Care Act is the program that deals with medical care.
Most doctors don't specialize in an "array of illnesses" but you might want to find a doctor that specializes in infectitious diseases. I have no idea where you live, but where I live, we have an infectitous disease clinic that deals with HIV, but also deals with people traveling to foreign countries and needing immunizations against potential diseases in the country they are traveling to.

I live in NYC and some doctors do accept ADAP as a coverage. I'm not eligible for any other assistance and therefore I have to remain where I am for now until I find a place of comfort. If you or anyone else knows of a place in Manhattan or Brooklyn, please post it on this board. I know I may be asking for a lot considering my insurace limitations, however, I believe that anything is possible. Thanks for your response.
