Hepatitis C care
Hepatitis C treatment was once reserved for speciality care facilities, and relied on highly intolerable treatments. Recently, there have been exciting breakthroughs, with highly effective all-oral medications with far fewer side effects. Treatment can now happen in your primary care office and Hepatitis C takes as little as 8 weeks to effectively cure.
