Are you asking your HIV care provider the right questions?

Sure, there's all the usual stuff it's important to talk about, like discussing your CD4 count and viral load, or asking about HIV treatment options and side effects. But is there more you could be bringing up with your provider -- other questions you could raise, other topics you could ask about -- that could end up improving your health in ways you might not have considered?

We wanted to find out. So we asked some of the most experienced, well-respected HIV clinicians in the U.S.: What's the question you wish your patients would ask you, but that they rarely do? Here's what they had to say.

This collection of videos is part of the Live Bold Live Now series on TheBody. Interviews took place in March 2018. Video production and editing were performed by Jens Bishop and Alex Portaluppi. Interviews were conducted by Nasreen Alkhateeb and coordinated by Daisy Becerra.
