To make an HIV-related appointment, call: 512-978-9100

Initial visits typically take two to three hours. You will meet with a social worker to discuss available services and your health care needs. You will meet with an eligibility screener to ensure you will have access to all the care and medications needed to keep you healthy. You will also meet your clinical care team, including your provider, nurse and medical assistant.

At the end of your visit, you will leave with a prescription, the medications needed to keep you living your best life, and the knowledge that our team is here for you.

CommUnityCare conducts routine HIV screening as a part of all new patient appointments. Additionally, screening is available on request. 

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, known as PrEP, is a once-daily pill that significantly reduces your risk of acquiring HIV.

Post-exposure prophylaxis, known as PEP, is a treatment regimen that prevents HIV infection after a known exposure to the virus. Having condom-less sex or sharing a needle with a person known to have HIV, or unknown HIV status. It is important to know that the medications used for PEP must be started within 72 hours after the incident occurred to be effective.
