HIV is a retro-virus, just like the viruses that cause the common cold and flu. The body's initial response often mimics those symptoms!


Initial symptoms include:


-  Headache

-  Diarrhea

-  Nausea and vomiting

-  Fatigue

-  Aching muscles

-  Sore throat

-  Red rash that doesn't itch

-  Fever

It may not be the flu!

Once the test results are in, you can discuss them with our board certified infectious disease doctor. We can go over treatment, prognosis, stages of the disease, how to manage HIV, and how to avoid spreading it to others while still living a full life.


Living with HIV and AIDS is not a death sentence these days - we have a wide range of treatments that will help you get the most out of your life!


The most important thing you can do to fight HIV is to learn the real facts!

I got tested - now what?

Please contact us whenever you think you've come into contact with HIV - especially from intimate or close-quarter situations. The HIV virus requires an exchange of bodily fluids to infect a new person.
