PrEP Treatment in Melbourne

August 13th, 2018|Comments Off on PrEP Treatment in Melbourne

Looking for PrEP Treatment in Melbourne?
PrEP treatment or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis to HIV is available with Dr Edward Skinner at Yarra Medical The Hive. The treatment is designed to prevent HIV infection if you are exposed to HIV. It must be taken daily. Regular sexual health checks must be conducted every 3 months if you decide to stay on the medication.

As with all medications, there can be side effects and not all patients are suitable for PrEP. Dr Edward Skinner requires an initial 10-15min appointment to assess your suitability for the medication. If eligible, testing will then need to be undertaken before providing a prescription for PrEP.

Pathology collection is available on the day from 8am to 12noon weekdays and from 9am to 12 noon Saturday for these tests. Results will usually be available within one week.

Yarra Medical The Hive is open 7 days per week including weekends. If Dr Edward Skinner is not available on the day all other doctors at the clinic are able to prescribe this medication to you.

To book with Dr Eward Skinner or one of our other doctors you can call the clinic on (03) 9027 6262 or book online. Please make sure you have a look at our clinic fees listed on our website or check with the receptionist at the time of booking.
