Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)
If you’ve suspected that you’ve been exposed to HIV through occupational exposure, high risk sexual behavior or drug use then PEP, if taken soon after, can prevent viral infection. There are many options for the treatment regimen and Dr. Rashbaum is a leading expert in choosing a PEP cocktail that is well tolerated and effective.
