The team at Evergreen is here to support you and help you get the care and treatment you need to live the life you want. Finding out that you have HIV can be overwhelming. Today, HIV is a treatable chronic health condition, and with treatment, people living with HIV can lead healthy lives.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that passes from person to person through sexual contact or contact with HIV-positive blood. If left untreated HIV can lead to AIDS. The virus attacks a specific type of immune system cell in the body, known as the CD4 cell or the T-cell. HIV destroys these cells, making it harder for your body to fight off other infections.
The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Through a walk-in visit or appointment, you can get your results within 20 minutes at our Buffalo or Jamestown HIV and STI/STD testing clinics.
If you have a positive HIV test, you will need ongoing medical care. We can begin discussing a treatment plan right away.
Our providers are American Academy of HIV Medicine certified and provide the most up-to-date treatment regimens available.
The goal of all HIV treatment is to bring patients to an undetectable viral load. This means there is very little HIV found in the body, which reduces the impact HIV has on your system and eliminates the possibility of transmitting the virus to others.
Evergreen Health accepts a wide range of insurance plans and does not turn patients away due to their inability to pay. If you don’t have coverage, we have a dedicated team ready to assist you with obtaining the coverage that best fits your needs. For uninsured or underinsured patients, we offer a sliding fee program to provide care to patients at a cost they can afford.
