HIV Care

At Dr R Fuentes Medical Practice, we offer compassionate and comprehensive HIV care, understanding the unique challenges faced by those living with the virus. Our services are tailored to support you, whether you are at the initial stages of diagnosis or require ongoing management.

HIV, or Human Immunodeficiency Virus, compromises the immune system, potentially leading to AIDS if left untreated. Dr Fuentes provides essential information, support, and treatment options, emphasising the importance of regular HIV testing for early detection and prevention of transmission. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the cornerstone of our treatment approach, personalised to fit each individual's health, lifestyle, and preferences. This personalised care helps suppress the virus, enabling patients to lead long, healthy lives.

Beyond medical management, Dr Fuentes' approach to HIV care also addresses the emotional and mental health challenges, aiming to reduce stigma and foster an environment of understanding. We prioritise the emotional well-being of our patients, offering resources and support to ensure they feel empowered throughout their journey.
