Email 276: Looking for an HSV Doctor

Posted by Pozziepinoy on 11:32 PM

Hi Pozzie,

I would just like to know if there is a clinic or physician or hospital that specializes in HSV-1 and HSV-2 cases?  I would very much like to have counseling and guidance over this virus.  If you can help me with this i would very much appreciate it.  I have lots of questions and i would like to talk to someone who knows a lot about this particular one. Thank you.



Hi S.

Actually, any board certified infectious diseases specialist can discuss HSV to you. The training institutions for Infectious disease specialty are in UP-PGH, UST, Makati Medical Center, St. Luke's and San Lazaro Hospital, so specialists in Infectious Diseases at these institutions would be the best options to consult. If your enquiry is really in depth and much more academic , then I think you can set an appointment with  the head of UP-PGH, Section of Infectious Diseases, Dr. Cecilia Montalban, who might have extensive experience. I do not know her personally but she also holds clinic at the following hospitals based on the website:
