     Your Dr cares only for his malpractice insurance rates going up… he does not want this to happen, plus it would be a huge blemish on his record.

    He could care less about ppl with HIV

    Sue his ASS!!

    Sue! Dight it all the way. Screw your HIV doctor, sounds like he was the one who initially released your information without a "for your eyes only" on your personal information. They are more concerned about covering up their mistakes, that they would reather let yousuffer alone than to fight. I went through the same ordeal with the V.A. here in Phoenix (after the V.A. found out they may have infected verterns in Az with contaminated instruments). they wanted the same thing. Once they story broke out to the public, the harrassing stopped. If we (Hiv positives) are to suffer some more, then I will stand by you. No one outside your immediate family and your doctor should have access to your personal information no moatter what the situation is. As I see it, there was no risk of infection towards others. You are not a "Biologicla Hazzard" (nice little term from the V.A.) to any one around you, therefore, The so-called professionals were anything but. Those people with that mid set have no business being in the medical profeesion if professioalism is the first thing out the wind when they feel they are in a perceived dangerous or risky situation. It is a scare tactic, don't fall for it. Fight for it. Until the stigma of HIV is erradicated, we will always be the new Lepers.

    (my last statement is not to offend any persons with lepersie (?), but only to illustrate how one couldbe made a monster, or pariah through igorance.)
