    Hi - I hope you are all well.
    I have another patient relocating to the MD area.  She is relocating to the region below.  She is 80 years old, stable HIV+, severe osteoarthritis, HTN, COPD.  I will look at the official referral site but I am wondering if anyone can recommend an appropriate HIV Primary Care clinic for this pt in the following area:

    Hyattsville md

    20785

    I am assuming that she is not too far from DC as well - so an appropriate referral to DC would be appreciated as well.   Thank you so much!

    Dear Sara,
    If she goes to DC, I'd recommend:
    1) Whitman-Walker Health on 14th Street NW or on MLK in SE.

    I was going to say Whitman Walker as well, however in terms of location, Washington Health Institute is actually closer to where she would be living (and if she is 80 probably doesnt want to travel too much) and they have some amazing providers
