HIV Testing for Physicians

Trillium Health specializes in caring for people living with HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C.  Our health care providers are specialists knowledgeable in the latest advances in treatment and research.  We also provide extensive support, social services, and prevention education to the local community.  Comprehensive testing and outreach are part of our mission.

As Western New York's leading resource on HIV/AIDS treatment,  prevention, education, and support services, we can help primary care and specialty practices understand the importance of routine testing and how changing regulations may impact their practices.  Most importantly, we can provide advice, consultation, and resources.  Dr. Valenti's position on the governor's task force to end the epidemic has us poised to play a significant role as we offer the services meant to fulfill this mission.  Also important to note, we have the only Adult Day Health Program for HIV patients in the state, outside of NYC.

Our "thinc +" program is a comprehensive care model for Hepatitis C patients that includes a whole array of services provided by a physician, registered nurse, clinical pharmacist, treatment adherence counselor, behavioral wellness counselor, and registered dietician.  There is also an on-site pharmacy and lab for ongoing testing, a peer educator and support group, and an insurance assistor that can help navigate the system to make sure the treatment can be covered.  Trillium Health is on top of the latest drug treatments available and the most effective course of treatment based on the patient's own condition and circumstances.

Now, more than ever, it's important for all medical care providers to stay informed about the latest news on advances in specialized care - and we can help.  At Trillium Health, we are committed to furthering the care and treatment of patients in our service area, and to be a valued resource to the community's direct care providers.  Our team of health care professionals is just a phone call away at 585.545.7200.
