Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Testing for Long Island

Relax. Take a deep breath. Family Medical Care of Long Island is here to offer you high quality testing in about 20 minutes.

This test can show whether or not the HIV infection is present.  HIV attacks the immune system that you need to fight off infection, and this is what can become AIDS.  Because it can take anywhere from a few weeks to six months for HIV antibodies to appear in the blood of someone infected, the test should be performed at different times.


Why Should You Be Tested for HIV?


Not everyone who is tested for HIV is necessarily at a high risk of having the virus.  The test is often given for people who donate blood, or as part of a comprehensive check-up.  Reasons to be tested include:

  • Early diagnosis and treatment can mean a longer, healthier life

  • If you test negative, you can learn how to stay that way

  • As screening for blood and organ donors, and pregnant women

For pregnant women, an HIV test is done for the benefit of both you and your child.  A pregnant woman who finds out she is HIV-Positive early and receive treatment are less likely to pass the virus on to their baby than women who aren't treated.
