Clinical Consultations

The County of San Diego HIV, STD, and Hepatitis Branch (HSHB) operates a clinical consultation service for providers to discuss cases with an STD expert. Please call or text  (619) 609-3245between 8:00am and 5:00pm PST, Monday through Friday (excluding County holidays). Please make sure to leave your name, organization and complete phone number, including area code. To expedite the callback, direct line numbers are preferred over main clinic or hospital numbers. Please do not include any patient-identifying information in any text messages or voicemails sent to this phone.

PLEASE NOTE: Effective November 8, 2019, HSHB has implemented the new phone line above for providers seeking expert STD clinical consultation. This phone line replaces the STD clinical consultation pager (877) 217-1816. We will continue to operate the consultation pager during the transition, but the pager will be completely phased out by December 31, 2019.
