We offer HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) counseling and prescriptions when indicated by exposure risk.

PrEP is a highly effective daily medication that can be used with condoms to reduce the likelihood of acquiring HIV. PrEP is for individuals at high risk for HIV through sexual and/or intravenous drug exposures. We can safely and respectfully discuss your risk to determine if PrEP is appropriate for you.

What is PrEP?

PrEP is an HIV prevention option that works by taking one pill every day. PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. When taken every day, PrEP can provide a high level of protection against HIV and is even more effective when it is combined with condoms and other prevention tools. People who use PrEP should take the medicine every day and return to their healthcare provider every three months for follow-up and prescription refills.

PrEP is a daily medication that requires routine HIV screening and medication monitoring. If the decision is made to start PrEP, you would have initial screening for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and diseases as indicated. A baseline kidney function test is also performed with these initial lab tests.
