Shim Clinic Providing the HIV PEP Treatment to Reduce HIV Infection in Patients
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Singapore - Apr 04, 2018 - Shim Clinic is offering the timely post-exposure prophylaxis or PEP treatment that helps in reducing the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV infection after exposure in patients.
Shim Clinic, a general practice clinic in Singapore, offers treatment to various types of diseases. The clinic focuses on men’s health and provides diagnostic and treatment support for medical problems like andropause, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and male baldness. Shim Clinic also specializes in detecting and treating HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases in both men and women. The clinic has a comfortable environment in its private setting so the patients may feel at ease during their diagnosis and treatment.
Speaking at a recent public event, one of the managers at Shim Clinic informed, “We offer full and comprehensive testing and treatment of STD. To accurately detect HIV infection, 28 days after exposure, we conduct a 4th generation ELISA test that provides results within 20 minutes. If the HIV infection has started within 72 hours of exposure, which can happen due to condom slip, break or no condom use, then we can provide the HIV post-exposure prophylaxis or PEP treatment to stop infection.”
Shim Clinic extends diagnosis and treatment support for several diseases, such as candidiasis, trichomoniasis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, molluscum contagiosum, and genital warts and genital herpes. The clinic also considers the cases where individuals require an anaesthetic procedure for issues like acne, wrinkles, skincare, pigmentation, and obesity. At Shim Clinic, patients do not need to take a prior appointment and can simply walk in for a consultation. The clinic has multilingual, experienced medical doctors to provide counselling, as well as testing and treatment help.
The manager also stated, “We provide consultation on various health-related issues. For instance, we offer medication to help people quit smoking and get away from the harmful effects of smoking, without feeling the effects of withdrawal. We also have a special focus on providing travel vaccinations and prescription medicines for a safe trip overseas. Further, we guide and treat the patients with UTI or urinary tract infection. We not only offer consultation to individuals regarding the avoidance of STD and HIV but also in concern with contraception.”
At Shim Clinic, patients may not need to be worried about the HIV PEP cost, as the clinic provides treatment and diagnostic solutions at competitive rates to patients with HIV in Singapore. The clinic offers several testing procedures for individuals who may show the signs or symptoms of HIV. Shim Clinic also has a doctor especially focused on HIV testing and diagnosis. The treatment is offered to those whose medical results turn out to be positive. On the other hand, testing is the only way to diagnose an infection even if individuals show no symptoms of HIV.
