Dallas Dr. Drops Patient with Letter After Patient Asks About PrEP

doctor refuses to prescribe PrEP

On a public Facebook post, Tyhier “Ty” Huff says he visited his family doctor with the intention of getting tested for HIV and to ask about PrEP. After testing negative, he asked his doctor – Howard H. Nguyen of Dallas – about starting PrEP to reduce his risk of catching HIV infection.

He explained to the doctor that he was at risk of catching HIV, and says that the doctor told him to “get out of his office” and that he “wasn’t my doctor anymore”. He added that his doctor told him that he would still remain at risk and that Truvada (the medication used for PrEP) is not a preventative medication for HIV. Huff says that his original intention of asking about PrEP was made clear from the very first phone call to the office.

..my doctor literally in writing just told me i’m not his patient anymore – after I requested Truvada after an HIV- diagnosis.

The doctor followed up the visit with a letter to Huff terminating their patient physician-relationship.

PrEP can be a difficult thing for some patients to ask about but according to the CDC, PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body and is highly effective for preventing HIV.

  1. Time to file a complaint with Texas Medical Board about revoking his license to practice. He has shown no valid reason to discontinue care.

  2. Uptown Physicians Group is an amazing place. I’ve never been happier with my doc. They also specialize in HIV-friendly treatment.

  3. The doctor did the right thing. He followed his beliefs and didn’t succumb to the terrible left wing bullshit. Too many people are too afraid of the gays nowadays to do what is right. This doctor deserves a medal. I pray he does this more often and purifies our sinful world of the gay demons in our society.

      You know its people like you who make everyone else who is Christian look bad. When Jesus said "love your neighbor as you love yourself" he wasn't just speaking metaphorically. Christians always say oh well the Bible says this and the Bible says that. Well he is one oh hypocrite. Remove the log from Thine own eye before trying to remove the splinter from someone else's. I pray that you will learn mercy and humility in your life before it's to late*mic drop*
