AVAILABLE SERVICES

PRIMARY CARE

Our clinic consists physicians, nurse practitioners and licensed social workers. Our primary care team treats illnesses that range from minor injuries to major medical conditions.

HEPATOLOGY

The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is spread by direct contact with an infected person’s blood.  It is the most common blood-borne disease in the United States.  The symptoms of the hepatitis C virus can be very similar to those of the hepatitis A and B viruses. However, infection with the hepatitis C virus can lead to chronic liver disease and is the leading reason for liver transplant in the United States. Although there is no vaccine for HCV, there is a new, safe and effective treatment for hepatitis C that can cure 95% of persons living with the virus.

PrEP

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, which is a daily drug regimen to help prevent HIV. It involves a daily pill called Truvada that can help those at increased risk avoid HIV. Truvada contains two antiretroviral medicines that interfere with HIV’s ability to grow and take hold in the body once one is exposed to the virus. When taken daily, the risk of contracting HIV can be reduced by more than 90 percent.
