HIV Specalists



There are distinct benefits to having your HIV care from an HIV specialist. The benefits will greatly improve your long-term quality of life. The benefits of an HIV specialist include:

Knowledge and Experience

Knowledge and experience are symbiotic. HIV specialists who treat thousands of HIV-infected individuals have more experience recognizing symptoms, addressing complications, developing care plans and treatment regimens than a general practitioner taking care of only a few HIV patients each year.

Communication and Understanding

Since HIV impacts the whole person, both physical and emotional, those who care for HIV infected people need to be able to communicate with their patients and understand the special needs that HIV presents. HIV specialists are adept at both because of the number of HIV patients they treat and the experience they have gained by taking care of them.

The Cutting Edge of HIV Medicine

In order to be an HIV specialist, a doctor must keep current with the rapid changes in HIV science. Through continuing education, journals, conferences and participation in clinical trials, HIV specialists are continuously learning how to best treat HIV. As a patient, being cared for by an HIV specialist makes that cutting edge treatment and therapy available. Treatment modalities thought to be helpful may in the future be no longer recommended. HIV specialists would know this immediately whereas a general practitioner may not hear about such treatment changes until much later.
