PATF will be closing at 5 pm on Wednesday, April 26th for our Annual Benefit.

PATF's Medical Clinic


Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force’s medical clinic works with our medical case management team to provide comprehensive care for HIV-positive individuals. Though treatment for HIV has drastically improved since the introduction of lifesaving medications in the 1990s, many new medical challenges have arisen as those with HIV age. PATF’s clinic provides both HIV treatment and primary care for medical issues related and unrelated to an HIV diagnosis for our clients. 

PATF’s medical clinic also provides routine sexual health care for the community, regardless of HIV status. The medical clinic treats sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and works closely with our Health Advocates to provide a comforting and stigma-free zone for patients to discuss viral transmission risk behaviors openly and honestly. PATF offers testing for HIV, STIs, and Hepatitis C and a caring space dedicated to the treatment and prevention of these infections.

To make an appointment, call 412-248-0550 or email info@patf.org for more information.


HIV, STI, and HCV Counseling, Testing and Referral

PATF offers free and confidential HIV, STI, and Heptatitis C testing and counseling, including state-of-the-art Rapid Testing for HIV and HCV, which allows those tested to receive their results in approximately 30 minutes. Please note that Rapid Testing is an initial screening and that a confirmatory test would need to be done for a diagnosis. All testing is done in our testing suite by trained health advocates who can help you with making healthy choices as well as getting into care. Click here for testing hours.

Following her residency, she went on to infectious diseases fellowship training at UPMC. One of Dr. McBeth’s specialties is the treatment of hepatitis C among those with HIV co-infection, an issue affecting many HIV-positive individuals.
