Format: Paperback
This book reviews the natural progression of HIV in an individual patient , from an African American perspective. It gives excellent advice on signs and symptoms as well as laboratory work up of a given medical problem associated with HIV.
It also goes into great detail on how to deal with the stress and anxiety of being newly HIV positive and what to expect with the use of the new antiretroviral medications.
Dr. Goosby is clearly very knowledgable in the care and treatment of HIV infections in African American people
