I just got medical insurance and would like to find a great HIV specialist in the L.A. area.  Preferably someone who works with a Cedars-Sinai medical group.  I have PPO insurance.

Thanks.

I am with Kaiser, so that would not be of any use. I am very happy with what they have been doing for me. Hope your hunt goes well. Would your ppo allow you to go to Kaiser?

  • Cheers!
Hi there!  I sent you a PM with the information for the HIV Dr. I go to.  They should except your PPO. They are Cedars affilliated (I think) or at least for non-routine appts. they prefer you use Cedars.  They are off Olympic, pretty near West Hollywood (Miracle Mile area).  I really like this group (Synergy Hematology and Oncology, HIV Division).

Good luck!

Any other people have good relationships with their specialist that they can be as comfortable and open with them? I too am looking for a new doctor in Los Angeles.  Thanks buddies.

Kaiser is really good. They have labs onsite and have been monitoring my health since I started HIV treatmen there. I know that they accept other forms of insurance there like ADAP.

My HIV doctor from '94-'99 was with Pacific Oaks Medical Group (Dr. Gary Cohen).  He was excellent.
