i just researched this yesterday as we are only 1 1/2 hours from there but drive 3 hours for treatment in birmingham.

emory hospital and university has a clinic located at crawford long i think it was.   goole emory hospital and click on the infectious disease department.   i am not sure...but i would think that any clinic associated with emory, would be worth checking into.

good luck,
kim

When I was in Atlanta I was seeing Dr Scott Parry as both primary and HIV specialist. He is absolutely wonderful, I would recommend him to anyone. Look him up at Intown Primary Care off Ponce. Tell him Shawn sent you!  Good Luck! ;)

Grady IDC if you're indigent; ID solutions-check at piedmont-tha's whereI go.  Call aid Atlanta for help.  There are so many holistic people offering services in Hotlanta.  Chiropractors, masseuses, the pin sticking thing, private trainers for workouts and so much more.  There are plenty of support groups and alot of poz only social activities.  Hope this helps!  Later, Lisa

You may have already chosen a doctor by now, but if you are still looking and have insurance I would like to recommend Dr. Douglas Gurley. I have been seeing him for several years. I recently moved to PA where I had to find a new doctor and already miss Dr Gurley! He is family, is supper nice and knows everything about HIV. His office is at King Plow and has a great staff. If you do see him please tell him Jonny said hello.

Burst..

I will concur with Noah.  ID Solutions - Dr. Z and company at Piedmont are fantastic.  Their number is 404-351-8873.  I have been through 5 doc's in ATL since 1989 and she is the only one who has listened and treated me like a person not a patient (been with her since 2002).  Good luck!

The Grady IDP Clinic has a wonderful Doctor.(Dr. Biggers- she grrreat!) or you can go to CDS @ the Cobb county health dept for free (they have grreat Doctor's also) or you can go to West Ga. Infectious Disease and see Dr.Husain(770-739-8282) he is awesome and if you have no insurance he'll work with you on the bill and help get you meds for free ;D

Hey Guys, just wondering if anyone could recommend a great Aids/hiv specialist in Atlanta area.  thanks


I am sorry it took me a while to stumble across this. Atlanta, Metro area and most of Georgia has a TERRIFIC resource. Basically a one-stop shop for all your HIV needs from advocacy to case management to physicians to dental care, et al. It's called the "KEY CONTACTS" and though it's available as a booklet at any ASO, it's also available online.

Like any connection, some of the things will necessarily be outdated. But with that booklet (or the website below) in one hand and the telephone in the other, you will absolutely find the doctor who is the best fit for you.

http://www.seatec.emory.edu/keycontacts/toc.cfm

The two ASOs I highly recommend for good doctor referrals are :

AIDS Survival Project

http://www.aidssurvivalproject.org/

and AID Atlanta

http://www.aidatlanta.org/

Either or both of these organizations will have the most up to date info, and you can cross reference the (literally) hundred or so HIV specialists in town by distance, insurance taken, and other considerations.

If you absolutely HAVE to have AIDS in the Southeast US,I highly recommend having it in the Atlanta area. Just saying.

I highly recommend that you schedule an interview with your doctor, when you think you find a suitable condidate. Make sure this is someone you can work with, someone you can trust, and someone who will listen to your concerns and work WITH you, not just throw pills at you.

While Grady IDC sports the southeast's finest HIV dental facility (it's seriously amazing) policy changes a few years back made it MANDATORY to see THEIR doctors for all  your services. You could not simply go to your own ID specialist, then schedule an appointment with the ADC dental care. Though I deeply regret being locked out of the dental part of that system, I do not regret leaving the substandard infectious disease treatment behind. For those who are not at high risk for illness, it might be a good fit.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Well, PM me :).


"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
