"HIV disease treatment is complex, like spokes of a wheel. Physicians, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, prevention counselors, and financial counselors each play an essential role in supporting the patient. With one spoke missing, a wheel does not function properly. So it is in patient care; all of these professionals are needed for care to be successful. We are committed to ensuring our patients get the comprehensive services they need to lead productive lives."
