Damien Cares Provides Unique Medical Services for Individuals with HIV

At the Damien Cares clinic, we focus on patients as individuals. Our clinic provides HIV services with a focus on primary, transgender, and high-risk HIV negative care. The clinic also provides patients with a medical case manager, mental health and substance abuse counseling services, and access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) for those at substantial risk for contracting HIV.

At the Damien Cares clinic, our medical staff emphasizes the importance of well-rounded care and will take the time to talk with you about your treatment options, adherence to medication, and possible side effects. Your health is important to us and we want our patients to take an active role in their medical plan by communicating your needs and concerns with our medical staff. All treatment plans are developed collaboratively with patients to promote holistic wellness and HIV prevention.
